I’ve had no side effects from the vaccine to speak of. But my arthritis pain has just about doubled. Walking is much more painful. I can only stand up for a few minutes. And my hands and fingers are worse than before.
Do you think that could be a side effect of the vaccine?
Tomorrow morning I see my doctor for my bi-annual exam and I’m going to talk to her about it.
When I have to get up twice in the middle of the night to roll some of that menthol stuff on my back just to sleep, then I need to talk to my doctor about it.
In gardening news hosta shoots are coming up in about three places in the blue container bed.
I’m worried that the two gallons of Shasta daisies I planted there didn’t make it through the cold winter. I’ve seen no signs of them yet. But hope springs eternal.
However in the galvanized container gardens, the daisies didn’t truly die off. So I have hope for them in that spot.
I know when I go out there multiple times a day with Charlie and find something new popping up, I probably really just missed it the first time round. Or could it be things pop up that fast?
Whatever the answer, I still enjoy my little treks out there every few hours to peer into the soil as I do every year at this time.
Ivy & The Spider:
Ivy has been agitated because a black spider has been on my bedroom ceiling for a week or so. It moves maybe an inch a day. Once it came down the wall a bit. Of course there’s no way she can get to it and that’s what’s driving her crazy.
Last week two moths got in while I had the French doors open. But I quickly knocked them down with my trusty yard stick because Ivy was coming unglued over them fluttering over her cat tower.
That yard stick is considered one of my best tools because without it, how on earth would I retrieve Ivy’s toys she knocks under the fridge, etc? That cat keeps me hopping.
Instagram Finally Called My Name:
I finally got the Instagram bug. I held off for years and didn’t even bother with it. But finally I relented and got on the social media site the other day because Laura is always talking about it. And now I think I’m hooked.
I’m just learning how to do everything right now, so I don’t have a ton of photos on there yet. But yesterday I added some if you want to visit me there at: https://www.instagram.com/cozylittlehouse1/
Tomorrow I’m going to talk about cohesiveness of color in a small home. Someone commented that they had trouble with that on yesterday’s post, so it will be addressed.
Gail L., I promise you can accomplish this in your own home!
For me it actually started with one piece of decor and went from there.
