There Is Always A Way

Early morning  trip to the doctor, blood work performed, may need exray and will not be surprised if inflammation level is very high.
Much this one is experiencing is the ongoing inflammatory condition, horrible winter,
withdrawal from decreasing medication and also some issues that I cannot do anything
about but cause anxiety.

Nothing that has been happening will keep me from being outside on this sunny afternoon.
It is wonderful....

8 bags of mulch, sunflower seeds and dog food purchased, grocery visit and on my way back to the country.
No longer can I lift heavy bags of mulch and put in wheel barrow for me to spread.
Thought of the old dolly always used to move heavy pots and it is perfect for pulling mulch bags
from the truck on to this dolly.  It is so good to be outside in the warm sun...
Buds are popping out
and just know that in April when family will be visiting and my son arrives home
that there will be blooms.
I will leave you with this

My day outside has ended
but looking forward to

Although much of you is hidden I can sense the happiness in spite of the health issues you are working on. Spring is on the way, and today is so warm up here that a sweater is too much.

:-) This posting and the accompanying photos have made me smile :-). Wishing you a good evening and a beautiful tomorrow.

Tabor and Pienosole, just hung up phone from talking to daughter in Tampa (who will be here in April :)
Just know in your heart
that you both are so special
to me :) Your words are like a balm to this aching body :)

Your muscles and bones will be aching when you wake up in the morning, but a good ache from working outside AND in the sun. So glad the kids are visiting in April.

Bless your heart! Where there's a will, there's a way, as the old saying goes.

Those dolly's are great inventions and you can move a lot of different, heavy things with them.

Love and hugs to you dear Ernestine ~ FlowerLady

Just dropping by to say "Hello" and hoping you have a wonderful day in the sunshine. It's too windy here to be comfortable outside.

Clever idea to use the dolly....and that sunshine can only help to ease the pains you've been suffering, both physically and mentally.
Those pots will be looking lovely when your most welcome company arrives. Happy for you!

I thought that I was the only one to use a dolly. it became so hard for me to haul the trash out to the I looked around the garage and saw the dolly. Now, I can move things myself and now have to bother a neighbor for help.
I miss my helper here at home. He's getting better, but progress is slow.
Have a wonderful warmer day.
Have to tell you....I just saw a flock of robins....spring is in the wings.

Love your thoughts and photos. Love that we are not defeated by challenges, but use creative problem-solving skills to tackle those things that may at first seem daunting! So happy to have some relief from the Seattle monsoons for a couple of days. 60 degrees and sunny brings out the best in everyone!

Well, would you look at you!!
All perky and singing the songs of spring and plantings while I howl at the snow and the cold and frozen pipes. Figuratively speaking, of course.

I'm on a downswing energy wise too but that will auto-correct.

A dolly is an invaluable tool in my husband's work ~ and I've learned how much it eases the load at home, too. Let the "machine" do the work:) I'm loving the sight of mulch and planting pots ~
