Good morning. Tis looking rather nice outside my door. It's sunny and temps will get up to the low seventies. This morning Pogo and I are enjoying left over Chinese food for our breakfast. Wonky, huh? I'll probably have my Cheerios with a banana for lunch.
Well, yesterday was a busy day for me. I swept and mopped floors, did two loads of laundry, and I'm not sure whatever else. However, it took me all day to do this because it was not a great breathing day for me. My oxygen does have long tubing so that I can move around with it, but with me that is an accident waiting to happen. So I don't walk around with it on me. I stop and sit a lot.
I can use the portable oxygen to walk around, but then I'm carrying an extra five pounds on my arm. It's easier to do small chores at a time and not fall. See? I compromise. If I get it done, I get it done. If not, then so be it.
Today I'm hoping to sit out on the porch for a while and do a bit of crocheting. I'm enjoying working on this new pink afghan and can't wait to take some photos of it. I'm using three colors, and I have one more row to go of color #2 before I begin the third color. After that, I'll take photos.
Eddie and Bobby are supposed to be coming by this morning. I'm hoping to have Bobby plant a couple new plants that I bought while shopping the other day. They are simply gorgeous. They are Asiatic Lilies called "Tiny Double You." And they are orange, of course!
While I was in Florida back in March, I bought two pairs of the most comfortable pink flip flops. Yesterday, I gave both pairs a bath and hung them up to dry. So now I'm wearing my doggie flip flogs that I bought from "The Greater Good shop."
This company does a lot to protect and feed our precious animals. (people too!) So every now and then I like to buy something from them. I live in flip flops whenever possible. I find them very comfortable. Please don't tell my orthopedic doctor. I'm supposed to be wearing high top sneakers, or at least my ankle braces, to keep from falling. I'm not wearing high top sneakers, and I do wear the braces when my ankles are feeling particularly weak.
I am going to ask the doctor for a new walker when I go for my next visit. I'd like one with a seat and a basket. At the moment, I'm using my hubby's walker, but the seat is so tiny I can't sit on it. However, I'm very grateful to have it.
Enough of my babble. Now I need to get dressed before Bobby and Eddie get here. So, till Sunday, Y'all have fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
