It is cold this morning. Though it is supposed to warm up this afternoon.
The morning sounds are the trash truck clattering down the alley. Funny how you come to expect the sounds of your day.
Did you remember to set your clocks back over the weekend? That always leaves me a bit confused. How about you?
For an example, I just now tried to turn the fireplace off with the TV remote!
Still The Same:
I’m still hobbling around in pain. Night before last I slept in my bed and woke up in great pain. Last night I slept in my recliner and had pretty much the same results.
I’m doing everything I can, including exercises some of you have mentioned here. Plus I’m taking medication and supplements.
But one thing that is currently constant is picking up Charlie, as he has trouble climbing both his doggy stairs now. He’s just not strong enough anymore to make it up the steps, even with his laser treatments and acupuncture.
Every other day I’m to give him Salix, a diuretic. And sometimes I can’t make it to the French doors before he needs to go. So I do a lot of cleaning up.
Below is Ivy sunning herself.
Right now she’s on top of the cupboard facing the living room window. The sun is slanting through the bamboo shades and she is sprawled out sleeping there.
Some of the day I get to feeling better, less stiff and more normal. And then a bit later that feeling is dashed. I haven’t had a bout with my back like this in quite a few years.
Guess I’ll just work my way through it. I have groceries and a roof over my head and should not complain beyond that. So many others don’t have even that.
And that thought is surely humbling.
What I’m Reading:
Have you read any of her books? She’s written quite a few over the years. This one is a police procedural from what I can tell in the first chapters.
I read so many books I’m not sure if I’ve read any of her other books before or not. You get to the point where book titles all sound the same.
Tomorrow is election day. I’ve already voted via absentee ballot about a month ago. We all get a voice so don’t forget to vote!
