October has been so busy.
I have not been able to post for 12 days. I have been kept busy bring in all the house plants and preparing them for winter. So, many of my next posts will be all about the houseplants that keep me in flowers all year round. But first…
WOW… September was a month, filled with many Highs and Lows.
I am slowly, able to get out and about once more, with the help of my Rollator.
The first week
Sunday the 3rd – Went to our Eldest daughter’s house for dinner and a shared Birthday cake with our son-in-law Kevin. We had a relaxing visit, then we were sent home with some of her homemade goodies: a pint of applesauce; 1/2 pint of peach preserves (great for lassies); strawberry-rhubarb preserves and rhubarb or cherry preserves.
Tuesday the 5th – My cousin Don and his sister, cousin Kim came by for a nice visit. Kim gave me a lovely basket of fruit: oranges; apples; kiwis; almonds; and luscious grapes (she even researched what I could or could not have).
Sunday through Tuesday however… I realized that I had been suffering from a silent headache. Which may have impacted my total enjoyment of these days.
Wednesday the 6th – The Home Nurse was here, BP had been running high 154/105 and 150/110, she called the doctor, etc… Crazy, I was just at the doctors 2 weeks ago and my BP was 110/70… It was so low, I had a hard time walking, I guess I am not use to “normal low”.
That night I tried to breathe & relax with some of the wonderful gifts I had just received. My Lavender and Rosemary candle from my sweet neighbor Jessica and her children, along with some nice healthy munchies.
Thursday the 7th – Nurse came again. -BP coming down 132/93.
I think I need some Xanax.
Friday got to make some of my homemade deodorant. \Organic Deodorant – Homemade
The Second Weekend
Saturday – I enjoyed a local town’s Bike Night Event, I was able to walk the whole thing for two hours, with the aid of my Rollator, that is. It allows me to sit and rest as needed. I even made my goal on my Fit Bit…
But guess what… my Ricco sent a picture, via bluetooth, from his phone to my computer, but instead sent it, via bluetooth, to my fit bit… I don’t know how, but he wiped out all my steps for the day.
The Third Weekend
The Fourth Weekend
Another good one… Saturday, we went to The Greek Affair, a Festival of Grecian Flavors and Delights. I was held at a friend’s Beautiful Greek Orthodox Church. It was a very HOT day. But, I had my Rollator and could sit whenever and wherever I needed. Plus I carried my solar umbrella, so cool under it.
We met up with a couple of old friends, one couple could not make it due to illness. We had a nice Greek dinner together, sitting, relaxing, talking, and enjoying the company. I got to have a Wonderful Dinner: Lamb, green beans, a creamy risotto, etc. then Bakalava. Last but not least, a dozen Dolmas to go. 😀
A Wonderful, Yummy and Funny Day.
So I am feeling Blessed with abundance,
I feel I’m still working towards basic good health.
I have been released from Home Care and Physical Therapy.
Plus the Real Good News and True Blessing is that our
Friends are safe from the storm…
Jesus and his family in P.R. and all our friends all over Fla.
I Love and appreciate you all.
I hope you join me on my journey, as I recount many things from my past, and explore the many other creative possibilities in my future. – OmaEagle
