Brick Path Weeding

Early this morning GP Practice Nurse Jill Jefferies changed the dressing on my injured hand. This involved cleaning the wound, cutting away another flap of dead skin, padding and bandaging the affected limb.

This means that any pressure applied by the palm or the fingers hurts a bit. Today I decided to rest the hand, meaning little use of computer keyboard, or the camera shutter; much more of Jane Eyre was therefore read.

Martin, meanwhile was active as ever in the garden, among other things weeding a good stretch of the Brick Path.

Here is the finished section followed by the rest demanding his attention.

This evening we enjoyed our second helpings of last night’s curry with which I drank more of the Sangiovese.


  1. Here’s hoping your hand recovers soon.
    And always good to see that Martin continues to do a great job for the Knight household!

  2. I hope your hand recovers soon, Derrick, you could use a weed whip to clear the weeds from the brick very quickly, or spray them with a grass/weed killer. Yay for Martin!

  3. I must have missed the post where you mentioned hurting your hand. I hope it heals quickly. You are so lucky to have a Martin!

    1. Thank you very much, Dale. I tripped, fell, and took a great chunch of skin off the back of it nine days ago

  4. Martin does fabulous work! The path looks amazing! πŸ™‚
    Yes, please please please rest your hand and let it heal. Continued prayers.
    (((HUGS))) ❀️❀️

  5. Martin is doing a wonderful job on keeping the garden in check.
    You’re doing the right thing in resting your hand and giving the skin chance to heal. πŸ™‚

  6. I will be weeding tomorrow (no need to rush). My trusty flamethrower will have its first outing of the year. The result isn’t pretty for the first week (ll those wilted plants) but eventually it comes good. Good luck with the hand. These things, as people will keep telling you, take time.
