Yes, that is right. Pick yourself up and brush yourself off, it's me yet again. While recovering I've gone weeks if not months without a word.. barely a visit. Now in the span of a couple days I've been here several times. Ummm, no I am not trying to make up for the time I've missed. It only looks that way. I swear! I have missed you all tons. So many of you have sent me greetings, both on here and in the mail. Thank you! There is not a soul out there that could tell me on line friends aren't real and get away with it. So many of you helped me through some of the darkest days. That IS real! Again, I want to thank you all. The cards always came/come when I need them most. Like you knew it and sent them.
All is not perfect in my world. I still have a long way to go and somethings I'm not sure will ever get better. The doctors aren't sure either but I will not go down without a fight. That you can count on! I have to wear those oh so special compression socks (knee high). Ever try to put them on? Now think of me with an incision (that is healing) from the top of my sternum to my pubic bone. You want me to what? Pull those things on? Oh thank God they at least come in colors now and not just white! It's only a temporary thing. Well, my doc says it is. We are working on getting the swelling in my left foot to stay down. Along with a water pill every day, it seems to be working. That is except for the constant need to run to the potty. He has seen me in my highs and lows and no doubt is not wanting to feel my wrath if I have to wear them forever. Soooooooooo until further notice no pretty shoes. LMAO ok so my Fred Flinstone feet never fit into pretty shoes, now I just have an excuse.
Here are the remaining pictures from my drive today. Ok, not all of them but a few more. I found the modern windmill in this shot with the old barn to be interesting. To the right of the one you see there are about 30 more.
This was the old barn I wanted to actually use for the challenge. I just thought the extensive damage up against the blue sky added something. Not sure what I thought it added but........... I decided not to use it because someone else used an old barn....
This fence lines the road not far from my house. Had it not been so wet and yucky I would have walked down to it and took the shot length wise. It appeared to go on forever and every few feet it had fallen down. Maybe another day when I'm a bit more sure of my footing... or maybe I will have my son come with me so I can hang on to him. Ohhhh... he'd surely be calling me a freak then, eh? You do remember he has called me that in the past regarding my picture taking, right?
Speaking of my son. We went out for dinner this evening. We went to a local place (one he use to work at) that is close by with yummy food. I'm a bit limited on the menu items but it has a few things I can splurge on. The grilled chicken sandwich I had was to die for!! Not literally, I promise :) He was thrilled to hear I'd been out taking pictures. He was even more thrilled to hear I've been on the PC a bit more. I know he's happy to see me moving on and not being on a constant crying jag. Poor kid. He's been through as much hell as I have been and he did nothing wrong. I tell him I must have done something really good in my previous life to luck out and get such a good boy. He blushes, but I know he knows I mean it. I am blessed to have such a son!
::giggle:: I know a few rolled their eyes when they got the alert for yet another entry so I will end now. Besides I feel like the above tractor (old) more and more and it's now time to put my feet up and rest my eyes. LOL Actually I'm off to watch more hockey. They are playing for the holy grail you know. My boys aren't in it.... :::heavy sigh::: once again their season ended after the regular season, but the off season is long and I need to get my fill. You watching? You care? Who are your picks? I know in years past I did entries with the teams and choices but I just wasn't up to it prior to the run actually starting. Maybe the finals... if you can stand me posting regularly now.
Thanks again for being you and being behind and/or next to me in my wild adventures of the past few months. I can never thank you enough or show just how much it means to me.
