Monday 6:00 AM

At 6 it is still dark, days are getting shorter and at this time seems it is my computer time
even though I vow to do chores, yoga, breakfast and then computer.
Old habits difficult to change for me - I do try....

Bush hog man arrived yesterday to cut in woods, looks nice but now need someone to pick up
a load of limbs (I use to do it)    He unloaded rest of pumpkins
When daughter and young granddaughter's arrive soon they might want some of them
Television on, just turned off, so much violence everywhere :(

I am concerned about purple color on my ankle, keep bumping, doctor does not seemed concerned
aware my skin in thin, on medication that does this, but do not like it, so careful and continually
bumping myself with balance issue
the one who for years wore trendy shoes on her 7 narrow foot has advanced to super support shoes
look like concrete blocks - it's alright keeps this 106 lbs walking.  Kept telling children about it
and took an image  Their reply "oh mama looks bad - now darker then image shows.  Always small bruises but nothing this big.   Did bump severely 4 months ago.

Daylight beginning, time for yoga and breakfast, think a scrambled egg with spinach and cheese,
side of yogurt and banana - all small amounts.

"I am trying to be content in each and every situation.  I can do all through Christ who
strengthens me"   written  in one of my old journals years ago ---  in Phillipians 4:11 - trying once again at this time....
and know I can do it if I keep trying.....yes, successful in the past but now different - seems with aging everything is more difficult...

That looks very nasty. Does it hurt or merely tender?

Your pumpkins are lovely.

Pray that your bruise is not serious.

You continually inspire me dear Ernestine.

Great scripture verse to cling to. He is our strength when we are weak.

Love, hugs & prayers ~ FlowerLady

I'm on a blood thinner and every little bump brings the bruise.
Bigger bumps seem to take so long to heal. I try to massage them to get that blood bruise to thin out and dissipate.

Judy, I am not on blood thinner - a nasty wound in the spring. Told I am on my feet too much, need to ice, elevate and massage upward. One thing after another :(

You are on your feet too much? Well, then put that foot up for an hour or so in the morning and the same in the afternoon. Ice is good. Drugstores have flexible ice packs so that you do not have to deal with real ice if you get a chance to shop. It is hard with each new challenge, but you are handling it very well.

Those pumpkins have character! My skin bruises more easily now, too, with every little bump it seems as I get older. Hope you’re able to avoid more bruising and the one on your leg heals soon. My husband was given a white mesh covering by his Dr. to protect his extremities for use sometimes.

Tabor and joared, primary doctor made appt with specialist - may not go.
trying to avoid doctors all I can. Do better with no medication for pain.
Judy, WWW and Flower Lady - thanks for checking in...
