Yard work can be hazardous to my health!

So, purple is my favorite color, just not when it's here....
The weird thing about this is that looking at the foot/ankle you'd assume that the injury was to that area, right?  Well, not exactly.  I was watering my new plants and I tripped on the uneven flagstone.  I landed on the other side of this leg just under my knee and my upper arm.  The next day I stepped down wrong and this ankle turned.  My theory is that this lovely coloring is all the blood pooling at the bottom from all the other lovely bruising I have going on above this. Thankfully nothing is broken or sprained.  It is uncomfortable but ice and elevation help. Just proof that yard word can be hazardous to your health, especially when you're a clutz like me!!!
