Take it to the limit

I’ve made it to Friday without too much trouble. It’s noticeably chilly today and there’s a frost warning for tonight. I sprayed all my potted plants outside that I want to bring inside and washed off all my little folding patio tables with the hose and all the plant bottom trays and let them dry and then I brought them all inside. Two were beastly heavy. I set the tables up by my bedroom windows and put most of the plants in there. The biggest crazy heavy tree is still sitting in the kitchen by the sliding door. At least I got it in the door and on a rug so it’s slightly easier to move.i was puffing and panting so badly after that. Earlier this morning I took Bitzi on a nice long brisk walk. 

I just drug the big heavy tree pot into the living room by the window. I’m exhausted and panting like I just gave birth.

Feelin’ Stronger Every Day

It’s Thursday 11:39am. I went to our indoor pool this morning and did a very rigorous workout with my foam dumbbells. I feel tired and my muscles are telling me I worked them a lot but I feel really good. There’s something about the water that heals me. At the end of every water workout or swimming session I float on my back and look at the ceiling and thank God for my life and another day on earth. Seriously, I am grateful and blessed. 


This afternoon I’m going to another Sun City resident’s house to look at a used (like new) adult trike with a basket. I still don’t have too good balance to feel safe riding a regular bike. Well I haven’t for a couple years. I think I tried my old bike once or twice after the stem cell transplant and fell off at least once. I’ve just had too much brain shit to ride a regular two-wheel bike and feel safe and confident. I may look like a total eccentric old lady on this read trike but I’m okay with it. It may not be big enough though since it’s only a 24” frame. I’m a big girl. So we’ll see.

4:20 Well I got the bike. It seemed to be in pretty good shape and he gave me 1/3 off his asking price and he helped me load it in my car. I unloaded it when I got home. I had to work pretty hard to pry off three nuts to loosen and raise the seat. I test rode it a couple miles. I hadn’t ridden a bik in years! I’m amazed I could ride a bike!
