Summer is Nearing

The days are ticking by and my time is short here in Warsaw. In less than a week I will be on my way back down south. My sale is over and what I had left I donated. Friends have been popping by and I have been sharing lunch and good chats. These are memories I will keep.

I was able to see my son this past weekend and although it wasn’t long enough, I enjoyed the visit. They live at the lake and usually when I go out that way, I sniff deep, so I can smell the wood burning at the campfires. I just love the smell of campfires. A long time ago I ran across an incense at a local hardware store.

It advertised that it smelled like campfire wood burning; so I decided to try one box of them. They weren’t lying. Each time I burnt one, I thought I was back in the camping days. I went back and bought more boxes. The following year I headed straight to that store to purchase more, but they didn’t have them, and I have never seen them since. I have tried other scents that promise that familiar smell, but none of them ever did the great job those little green cones did.

I have been on  an up-swing with my two books I had written. Dahlia and Al, his life and MSA, have been selling lately. I plan to continue my writing of my third book once I get settled in or at least when those days are chilly and I see a few snowflakes falling. I plan to capture on camera the changing of the tree colors, and am hoping to take photos of wildlife.

I have had a really good week as far as how I have felt with Parkinson’s. Last night terminated my seven-day streak, as I lay awake most of the midnight hours with body tremors. I don’t know what happened but when I woke this morning, the one leg that had the most tremors, was broke out in a rash and looked bruised. It doesn’t hurt, but I can definitely see something happened. The other leg has a little in the same area but not as much.

I went to a Chinese restaurant today that serves a buffet lunch only on Mondays. I think because I limit myself to so few foods, the food there didn’t taste good at all. Much too salty and I guess I am not used to fried foods anymore. I was disappointed, although I looked around and the place was packed with people; and I could see they were enjoying their meal; so it must have been my taste buds.

Tomorrow I plan to pack a little more up and I have been invited to Applebee’s by a friend, so I don’t have to cook, and since I am not a good cook any longer, I will enjoy dining out.

The weather is beautiful today. Light breezes, sunny skies, tiny, white, puff-clouds. A sure sign that summer is coming to an end. Fall is beautiful, but I don’t like cold anymore so don’t look forward to winter.

Hope you are all having a good Monday.

  1. Hi Terry, these pictures are fabulous – you have become quite the photographer! And good for you for the book sales…that’s great! So sorry you had a bad night last night but I am thrilled for the good days you’ve been having lately, too. So you have a good Monday…and the rest of the week, too! The Red Man sends Paw Snaps and Twirls to you today!! 🙂


  2. What? Moving again? Where? When? I guess I am slow. I don’t get to read much anymore. I was reading up on more natural diabetes stuff and thought about you. I am going to try this since I’ve not been well for a few months now…just stuff and stress I suppose.
    If you move one more time, I’m going to have to stick those stickers on you that they stick on suitcases back in the day. lolllll. Big hugs and prayers for you.

    • I don’t have a choice this time with moving. My balance is not very good and I am moving into my daughter’s home. I use cinnamon daily and it has been bringing my sugars down. I use cinnamon tea, and sprinkle cinnamon on my yogurt and oatmeal. My sugars are pretty good right now.


  3. Wishing you all the best for your move again. Lovely pictures! … oh and goof to hear your books are doing well! Are you doing another one like Dahlia. I absolutely loved that one!
