Quiet Tuesday Eve

I didn’t realize I was making a new, enjoyable habit; but I guess I have. When my supper is over, I usually have left-overs. Some food I love to save such as soups, especially chili. Other foods I put in the freezer or in the refrigerator and it usually becomes freezer burnt or spoiled.

Last week I decided instead of wasting it I would venture outdoors and feed the wildlife. I feed birds and my two fat groundhogs that scamper and play in the early evenings. It took a couple of days but now within a half-hour, what food I gave them is gone.

Tonight it wasn’t quite as warm as last evening. There is a slight breeze and the sun is still shining brightly. I did the feeding and then just stood out on the back porch and looked at nature’s beauty.

I saw a bird who was calling to his mate. I noticed the tree next door had turned red with buds. Quick, I ran back in the house and grabbed my camera. I swear folks, when I am with my camera, I see nor hear nothing else in the world. I don’t know where the time goes but I was out there for about 20 minutes. So here are the 3 photos I took. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them.


Prayers Helped

If you read my post from yesterday, you will realize the extreme pain I was in from using a treadmill. After talking to you and people in a neuropathy group on Facebook, I quickly learned I need healing on my feet and also I would have to give up the treadmill.

Even with the best shoes, diabetic neuropathy still makes it presence known. I suffered from the pain all evening and finally this morning the stabbing pain was gone, with only some sensitivity left behind.

Your prayers worked. I was able to walk with very little pain. I went back to the gym, looked at the treadmill and walked on by through the doors to the warm water pool. I stayed in there for 45 minutes. I did some swimming. I exercised my arms and legs.

After my mild workout I was able to get out of the pool and still be able to walk. Now that I am home and showered I still feel no great pain. I would say that the pool is where I belong.

I am disappointed as I feel I won’t get the benefit from the pool on my gait and weight loss, but the pain I didn’t occur was worth it. I hope I did something to help myself in walking today. Thanks to all who said the prayers for me.
