I Hugged the Pressure Canner

I had planned on doing a great post regarding how to preserve green beans via canning them.

But, It didn't turn out so grand. I could quite possibly have permanent damage (meaning a big scar).

While I was doing the canning part, I "hugged the canner" as my dear husband likes to put it.  I was actually trying to stir something on the burner behind the canner and well, my arm isn't as long as I thought it was.  It stuck to the side of the steaming canner and...

I was left with this:  

The photo is kind of backwards but, its my forearm just up from my wrist.  

Here is the other arm that I must have jerked into the canner while peeling my forearm off the other side.  Hence "hugging the canner" . 

After a few days it now looks like this: better but still hurts like hell. 
And, the antibiotics I'm on are making me sick as a dog. 

I'm gonna hold off on the bean canning tutorial until I am less mad at my canner.

I did pick up some totally cute pink camo wrap to keep it bandaged up in.  Turns out this stuff comes in a variety of colors so I've been able to coordinate it pretty well with my outfits.
