Overdid it yesterday

Sunday, August 24, 2014

Worked out in the garden yesterday, pulled up all but one tomato plant, weeded, made tomato sauce. Mind said no problem, body is saying otherwise. Nerve is pinching in my lower back, arms, hands are not happy also.
So today will be putting icy/hot on my back and taking it easy.

Hope everyone has a good day!!

    That does seem to be a problem, my back gets sore when I do a lot of gardening. You are doing the right thing, take care and have a good Sunday. emoticon

Tired but glad it's Friday

Friday, August 22, 2014

Was up several times last night and this morning. Finally gave up and got up at 4 am, ugh going to be a long day.
Two more people are leaving today, happy for them, but sad they are leaving. Need to look harder for a better paying job, but I think my age (will be 58 this Sept.) will work against me.
John will be working this weekend and hopefully next week. He finally got the title to the van, just have to get it registered, insurance and the windshield replaced.
Lilly had her 3 year check up yesterday and is doing great. She also had a Dr's appointment (therapist?) to check to see how she is doing after the dog attack. Melissa said she could tell the Dr. did not deal with little children, but Lilly and Melissa did talk to her. Poor Lilly is remembering more about it also, she has brought up about the towel and ice they put on her face. I thank God and our Angels she is with us and healing day by day.
They are calling for rain today and Saturday, hoping not too much so I can pull the rest of the tomato's off and pull up the plants. This will give the eggplants and peppers more room to breathe.
Well, need to get my fruit, vegetables together for my morning smoothie before work. I really do think this has been helping with my IBS, Colitis and Arthritis.

Hope everyone has a great day and also a safe and great weekend!!

    I am glad that Lily is doing better, so sorry about what happened emoticon
I love smoothies, they do have a calming effect on our system.
Hope you can get some rest later today.
Have a great weekend!! emoticon
