    All depends on the day swilkinson. I try daily to treadmill and workout and do the therapy routines, that said it so hard when the mood seem zapped (blah). Been on a sleep streak again and I know that other facets of health are taking a hit because of me sleeping so much (blood sugar, blood pressure & weight) I know I should take better care but still struggle after 6 years just to get out of bed then to actually do the exercises and routines. Miss the stroke club I attended as it made thing a bit more exciting then just by myself. Thanks for the question.

    I'm so jealous of your gardening and harvest Wev. Looks good making my belly grumble. Change mindset....off to treadmill.

    It may seem routine but if you think about it Kev it is never just another week.

    Sorry for the injury, but wonderful that your still motivated enough to do treadmill and are improving even with the injury. You weren't in a hay mow when this happened? The abundance of your garden makes me so jealous. I'm winning in the gardening but so do the weeds. It seems every improvement the weeds do 3 fold at bettering themselves in my garden. Can you drive that horse? Uncle had horses and as he got older he switched to driving them and got creative making wagons with different themes. Then he switched over to miniatures and continued his passion with the horses. Again great determination. Those grapes look so good. Hold old is the vine?

    Ah yes Kelli, the song Le Freak by Chic comes to mind. Momentary melt down. Reset all the other stuff clanking around in that mind.

    SW it does look like they go by various names, chigger the one I come across and just found it a neat word. I think it was referred to as grass mite, and grass fleas. Oh that will power not to scratch.
  7. Over the weekend I had almost like a snake bite on right leg. Didn't feel but noticed 2 red bump on foot, axle level. I suspected a spider had caused this. Didn't feel much at first. Monday it started to itch on right. This morning woke with 2 more bites on the left ankle about the same distance apart and looking like snake fangs pierced the skin. Boy is the left bites unbearable. Apparently its a chigger or Trombiculidae. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trombiculidae. Feeling on the left ankle is very irritating. The right not so bad. So found something good from my stroke. I've been trying all sorts of bite and itch ointments and remedies on the left foot. Right is just a slight itch. It is redder and larger but doesn't feel it as bad as the left. Interesting little critter. Looks like its out of a science fiction movie. Just glad I'm not scratching both feet. So another little advantage to my stroke.

    Pleasant here in East Beaverland. 73°F 28°C. Nearly whole day out back. Except for the siesta for 2 hours. Missed chat, and had to be woke up.

    Thanks for sharing your moment of grief. It certainly is difficult to fathom and comprehend all that is connected and the items that must be followed through with. Lost my dad 6 months after the stroke. Surgery that went wrong. I ponder much since his unexpected passing.

    I seem to be able to laugh it off now. At first I would get so mad and embarrassed.

    Thanks folks just never sure what to write. This is a bit therapeutic, as one member has repeated to me several times. I get away with the dining messes a tad easier. Sometimes feel like a baby.

    Oh Sue that is a wonderful blog and colour. I certainly enjoyed reading it. Your paintings add a peaceful side to the blog whilst you still have a little whit to it all. Thanks, it'll keep me thinking.
