Week March 8th

Fun full week 3/08/2015, First I have my birthday this week on the 13th Friday the 13th. I started out with a slow week. Weather was wet, cool, windy to start out but I have faith that yes spring just around the corner. By the end of this week weather personal say we are going to be in the 70's. Nd Monday was a quite, low key day. I finally got around to doing a couple loads of washing clothes. That was enough of standing and carrier cloths to and from the washer. I believe when it is a rain

Is 2012 almost over

Update, I have not been on the site or the computer this year very much. Especially after having walking pheonomiana in the spring for 6 weeks. It's taken me all this time to get back up to doing normal activities. I wanted to check in for 2012 before 2013 had rolled here. Jeanniebean

It's been over a week since the accident. I got over the counter medicine and for a week now I've been treating and changing my dressings. Carl can't stand it any longer and wants me to call Joy from church. Joy is a nurse parturition at a free clinic. It is still looking read around the edges and I don't want to get an infection. I agree with Carl and call Joy.   Joy see me Tuesday morning. As she starts to unwrap it the questions come up "have I seen my doctor" answer "no", I go to Grady, t

Burt my foot with Hot Oil

Last Monday Carl a I was putting together ratatouille for Tuesday dinner at church. Carl was chopping all the veggies and I was sauteing and cooking. We got to the point of adding the eggplant and we did not thing we had enough ratatouille. So, Carl went to the store and picked up two more eggplants. Eggplant needs to be first saute before adding it to the whole pot. I did a stupid thing. I thought I could heat up oil in the cast iron pan under the broiler and put the eggplant in and do it that

Weekend Vacation too short

It was so great to get away for the weekend even tho it was a half working weekend. Once we got to the fair grounds (Perry, Ga) and emptied our trailer and everyone's else. it was time to sit down for a lunch that was provided for all workers free. Menu: Brunswick stew or Bangladesh peanut soup, cornbread muffin, sweet tea or lemon aid and desert ice cream. That was Friday's lunch. A mini action took place for about 2hrs. Carl and I were blessed, for one of the congregation paid for us to st

I didn't burn the house down

The morning started out with picking up the truck and trailer from Linda's house. Carl and I left our vehicle. Off to the storage shed to pick up furniture for tomorrows night auction We all started at 9am. Pastor John decided to swap out the open trailer (double axle )for a enclosed trailer (single axle).   Finished loading trailers at 11am. I need to get Carl lunch.         In the past week I got the energy to do a lot of cleaning in the house.   Since we will be gone the landl

Update on my summer activities and odds and ends

About the Farm:   Carl takes the back roads to Mr. Parks grocery store. The store is owned by a little Korean man. He carries some unusual products plus he is less expensive than the Big known grocery stores.   Back to Carl taking the back roads, one day in spring on his grocery run passing the Mennonite Church his curiosity peaked. He drove threw the parking lot.         Carl came home and picked me up and we went to ask questions. See Carl with his aphasia when talking w new pe

WOW Can Not Believe It's Almost July 2011

Since it's almost July, six months of the yea is gone. I thought I would work on posting my pictures. Yes, the pictures are worth a thousand words. You'll understand what's been keeping me busy. It sure has not been playing on the computer. Of course it takes two of us.   Back in February I had to do all the cleaning up of the beds. Carl was having trouble with his lower back and hip. Until one day when at the Y I stopped in the common area and picked up a Senior News Paper. I seldom pi

Everything comming up?

It's been a long time that I have felt as good as I do since my stroke. Or maybe ever.:silly::silly: I'm loving my life, and my love for and with Carl is ever so stronger. Even tho Carl had a stroke. The love Carl and I have for each other spiritually deeper   bond :bop:. I only have one other such bond and that's with Mark.(that's another story for another time.)   My knees are feeling great, had my last shot. My knee brace for my right leg came in and is helping me be balance. My back

I thought my sister was the only one

When I was a kid my family lived in the country what is now know as Cleveland, Ohio.   My one brother and two sisters which are older than me, would always have to watch over me and take me with them.:whack: We had lots of open land and as well as wooded land.   Some of my memories are pretty funny thinking back.         I can remember my oldest sister Ann dressing me up in a dress, why I don't know.:hug: Taking   me out to the field and making a camp fire. :growl:I guess she was

Third week of May 2011

I have one more shot to go in my right knee. So far my knees are pain free.         I was sized for a customized knee brace called “OAcitive “. Osteoarthritis Knee   Brace. I received my brace and was shown how it is to be put on. It's like   having a robotic leg with it on. The knee brace is to help keep my knee   in alignment. I wore it out of the doctors office, have to break it in. But,   wearing it outside in the heat (90 degrees) is hot.         We have co

Pondering a answer to a question

I was going threw the blogs reading for the week and reading the many comments but, I was wondering what attracts others to read your blog and leave a comment? some blogs get many comments, where others get a few, such as my recent blog post.     I myself find all blogs interesting. But these questions popped into my mind, as I mentioned what attracts others to read my (your) blog? Is it knowing the person and what their story always brings to your? It is the title of the blog post? Is it the

Been busy for the past month

To start off this will be a scattered :dribble: collection of my thoughts of whats been happening the past month.   I read the book that the Stroke Community book club assigned but the date to get together was postponed and I missed the revised date. So, I'll try this next book The Secret.   My knees & back: Shots done in the left knee, two more to go on the right. I was sized up for a knee brace for the right knee. It will be custom made, I should receive it in two weeks or so. That

Knee update and New friend

Easter is a birthing time. I am blessed to be still hear.   Looking out in the yard, new blossoms on plants, the new   young birds on the bird feeders. And even those pesky squirrels out enjoying the beautiful day.         Update on my knees, I have finished with getting shots in the left knee. The left knee is feeling really great, no pain, no locking up after standing in the same spot for a long time. Next week I start on my right knee. I'm still taking pain meds. For it. Thursday

Dealing with Carl's outbursts

I'm hurting. I am trying to be a patience with the man. But since his stroke he has no patience. Example: We were in the car listening to XM radio when Carl asked if I would get the same station on the computer. Well the answer was yes. I told Carl to tell me when he is ready for me to set up his computer. Today was the day, I set it up, bookmarked it and showed him that is is just like a old fashion radio. It's like I told him all what he needed to know. He puts up a fit, talking very loud, no

New Adventures

Before I say good night, tonight I must jot a line or two. I have two new adventures I am taking on. The first is our Community Book Club. This is totally new for me. I am not a book reader, but I am going to attempt it. I have already found a recording and text at the local library.   The second adventure is I am going to teach crocheting at our local YMCA. I'm going to teach on Tuesdays, sharing the same time slot and room with the Quilter class. I drop in the Quilter class and all the wome

Shots in my Knee update

I've received my third shot of Hyalgan in left knee. I have two more shots left in the left knee. Next week I'm changing to my right knee. It is hurting pretty bad.   I am really glad I found this Pain Clinic and the Hyalgan product.         I am still doing my lap swimming, either 5am or 5pm. I do like mornings much better and it seams to start my day on a better tone. I am using flippers to strengthen my ankles and keeping my legs straight is working my upper thighs and stomach muss

Busy week! Fourth week of March 2011.

I have to start at the end of the week. When I was ready to post an update I received an Fox Fire update. So I downloaded and installed the update, by the time it was done I was finished for the night. I was too tired, my eyes could not keep open even with toothpicks holding them open.   I started today planning to post a updated blog. That blew the coop. My browser Fox Fire would not open. I worked on that for most of the day. Took a break and went to the Farmers Market, picked up cabbage
