I'll just share my vlogs here if you don't mind... :).
 
 
This is something I've wanted to do for a long time - a LONG time - and it is a goal reached. I can't wait to do it again in fact - lol! Over the last year or so I have recorded and thrown out more attempts than I care to count, but as a subscriber to several vloggers - for whom I now have new respect, by the way! - I have been dying to try it out myself. I'm pretty stoked, congratulations to me for a goal met - and a good time had - lol!
 
 
PictureThese were the lovely veggies (and burgers!) before they went on the grill; no time to take a picture after, we were DEVOURING them - lol!
What a great day!! This is splurge weekend. So pizza for supper last night, ate half of my portion and saved half for cold pizza from breakfast today - YEAH!! Great way to start the day - then church which is always excellent, love the messages, love the music, love the people - then picked up my mom from the nursing home, and some nurse I've never seen before was getting her all wound up as we were going out the door (remember, nursie-poo, she CAN'T live in your reality, and trying to make her, gets her UPSET!), but a few minutes with our dogs and cat, and my mom was in a better mood. Then Pete grilled us a FABULOUS supper, with some of our lovely produce from Horrock's - portabello caps, zucchini, and yellow squash brushed with olive oil and seasoned with garlic salt - eggplant slices serenaded in olive oil and balsamic - plus burgers...my mom was ECSTATIC over supper, couldn't stop saying how delicious it was (she's been a veggie lover her whole life anyway), and she really went crazy for the portabello caps especially. After that, a small chocolate cone at the Custard Cup and she was happier than I've seen her in months! Really made me feel great :). Add the lovely breeze sunny mild day, and that Pete doesn't have to work tonight, and it is about as perfect a summer day as I can even imagine!

 
 
Soon after my last post I got sick. REALLY sick. It was a flu thing, I guess, hit me like a ton of bricks. I felt sleepy and took a nap one afternoon. Woke up and it was dark out, I had a fever high enough that my body was trembling so badly I needed help to walk. And I had nausea - awful nausea! Which, because of my "wrap" was so much worse than nausea in pre-wrap days since vomiting is now impossible and wretching is excruciating. And a headache like I hadn't experienced since my last migraine (in 1990)...pain from head to toe. I was literally asking God to take me Home...

I gradually got better, but it took 3 weeks. A strange thing happened while I was so sick though: I lost interest in the things that I always had enjoyed - or even done but didn't enjoy - before. Playing my keyboard. Playing with my parrots. Church activities. Cooking.  Blogging...

A couple of weeks ago I decided to force myself to not only do these things, but enjoy them. Enjoyment truly is a state of mind, and of course we have the choice to enjoy or not to enjoy the things we do. But it's hard work...

Will I keep blogging regularly? I don't know. Will I stop blogging altogether? No. Doing it now, I am enjoying it. If you follow my blog, just don't expect posts every day, I guess. You have been warned. :)
