Hope everyone is doing well and that you are taking care of yourselves. In these changing times self care and self love are truly a must. I have discovered this in the last few months.
I had my medicine changed for Acid Reflex and discovered that there was a side effect that I should have paid more attention to. It was water retention and it took me two whole months to accept that this was not going to go away. I got carried away with the fact that I could eat and drink anything I wanted and I just didn’t want to give that up. I haven’t been able to do that since the 2000’s began. Now I do see my Doctor later this month and will talk with her about this but for the time being I am back on my old medicine and I can already see the difference. Of course now I must watch what I eat and drink very closely but for now that is okay.
Today we get our 2nd shot and I will be glad to get that behind us. We have taken tomorrow off just in case we aren’t feeling spiffy. If I feel good enough I do plan to take everything out of the closet in the Office/craft room and redo the containers and so on. This room I will admit is driving me crazy. Time to get it organized and set up to get on with the fun things I want to do and the business things we have to do to keep our LHR moving forward.
I try once a week to have a Home Spa Day but I often just either don’t have the time, energy or ambition to do this. I know I should but there always is something else that seems more important at the time and I do that instead. So today I am going to take care of ME! Now just how well I do that well that is another Blog post story for sure.
Well I made a mistake when I set out my seedlings. I lost most of the ones that I did set in the garden and these were all my tomato plants. I felt so foolish and I am going to restart some of my seeds this week end and hope for the best. I also didn’t take notes of what seeds I planted either so I do plan to up-date my Garden Journal this week end.
My flower garden in the front yard looks great. I do hope that all the bulbs I planted come up and the peonies and bleeding hearts do too. My fruit trees are doing good as are my other fruit bushes and vines. I still am waiting on a shipment of fruit bushes and vines as well as two nut trees. Hope they come soon.
I know I haven’t been posting regularly lately. I am sorry for that but with everything going on in our World and our Nation I just couldn’t write without venting and there is enough of that going around to drive a person insane! So I hope to do better in the future but this month and next will be hard ones for me. This month my Mom went home to be with the Lord. I know that this was her greatest wish and that for the past three years she had ask the Lord if she could come home. I miss her and our daily conversations about everything. April is her birth month and Easter was her favorite holiday. I will do my best to celebrate her life by remembering the good times and not the bad or sad times. I know she’s happy, healthy and having the time of her life in heaven with all our family and her friends but most importantly she is with the Lord. What an Amazing Easter she will have. So hopefully I will be back on track with my blogging by May.
Thank you for your understanding.
