We have been experiencing some brutally cold weather, so I put this old heater on FB marketplace for free.
I was inundated with messages, and the first person to inquire about it came and picked it up about lunch time.
He said, "we sure can use this", and truth it was just in my way.
I felt that January needed some RED.....so these are the towels that are coming off
They are bright and should warm up any kitchen. I might have to keep a couple.
Finally after 6 months, my knee does not hurt every minute, and for that I am grateful. It's been a long haul. It could bend more, to be honest. But I can do pretty much everything that I need to do, and I'm finally sleeping without constant pain.
But keeping it real, now I am dealing with something else. I have actually had this issue since last January. I guess I was hoping it would go away on its own.
I have paroxysmal atrial fib. I've been to a cardiologist and had testing done, and apparently this is a common ailment among my age group.
It comes and it goes, I might not have it for a month, and then I will have it every day for a week. It's distressing, and annoying and I want it gone.
What I really want is to get off the medication that I'm on that is supposed to suppress it,
because I am not at all sure it does anything, other than making me tired all the time.
I'm scheduled for an ablation, which will hopefully put an end to it, but it's not until April.
So I just have to get from here to there.
I'm trying to keep a good attitude, and I'm planning all kinds of ways to keep myself busy, and preoccupied. One thing about winter, it's a great time to weave and sew.
I've come to the conclusion that getting older is quite often learning how to jump over one obstacle after another.
"One day at a time" comes to mind, making the absolute best of every day.
And gratitude, always.
Years ago, in a very difficult time of my life, I had a small notebook that I wrote in daily, for a year. Every day I wrote down 5 things I was grateful for. It was a great exercise, it really helped. I never want to forget how blessed I am.
My family, my incredible friends, my dogs, my safe, warm home, my health with all its glitches, my life.
Be grateful first, bitch later, that's my motto.
