After 3 weeks of not a drop of rain,
leaves falling and most of my garden is finished,
wonderful rain started falling yesterday evening.
looking for anything of beauty
I have the thought that I need to look at these images
rather then with my eyes for there is still some beauty in my surroundings.
My wonderful turnip greens are gone...prayer flages in shreds and on the ground
so turkeys and deer have made a nighttime visit :(
2 daughter's and granddaughter's visiting over the last weekend brought me joy.
The week before a horror with a bladder infection, fever, weakness and drove myself to
ER. Scolded as they helped me out of my car and put me in a wheelchair,
why did I drive myself. The answer is I did not want an ambulance, cab and did not
want to bother anyone. All turned out well, infection gone along with fever, blood work
and the usual "you are in good shape, heart fine, a little anemic and eat good but very little
meat which I may add once a week. Also a allergic reaction from Cipro and my arms were
covered with purple spots. My Beth arrived and brought me home and friend brought my
car home the next day.
I am always asked by a daughter's and at the hospital "why are you so anxious" well who would
not be or maybe I am unusual as it really makes me panic going someplace where I have no control.
As time is going by and always accustomed to being in control of my life I realize more and more
that control is an issue with me and it may not change...I seem to give instructions to the doctors and nurses and I smile as they obeyed my requests and answer my questions.
So back to my normal self at this time of life, busy, trying to eat well, do less (but so much to do), enjoy these last years,
trying to accept the arthritis pain with thankfulness and try to accept I can no longer do some things
that I did last year and the years before.
So many blessings and try to focus on them...
