I have received three sets of prolotherapy injections with three more to go. I do notice some improvements, too! Several days ago our van was being used by my husband and I needed a ride to the landing where some of my jewelry will be for sale. That did leave a couple vehicle options available. First option would have been my one son’s really nice 1992 Chevy pickup. I’ve never been able to climb inside that one, so I looked toward option number two. My other son has an 84 camaro. It’s not the standard of the day, either. Well, I successfully climbed inside and out again twice without struggle or pain!!! Wow!
Then, several days later, I climbed four steps onto the landing. Again, there was no pain or struggle! After walking energetically and enthusiastically because of the steps success, my ankle twisted on the uneven boards and I raced forward to keep from falling. I did wrench my back and my ankle hurt for the rest of the day. I’ve not tried any steps since then, so I’m not sure if I managed to regress or am continuing toward the rebuilding of the cartilage and surrounding tissue. I certainly hope that my weak ankle will strengthen again once I’m able to walk properly. Who knows, I might be able to go fishing this year!
The last of our tulips looks as though they will bloom within a day or so. We’ve got nice splotches of colors scattered around our yard. The trees are fully leafed out and the grass has needed mowing a couple times. Today’s high temperature was in the low 60’s. Sunrise was at 4:53 am and sunset will be at 11:12 pm for a total daylight of 18 hours 18 minutes and 59 seconds with a daylight gain of 3 minutes 46 seconds over yesterday. The sun is beginning to set on the left side of our north-facing window. It then rises on the far right side of that window. That distance will decrease until June 22. I really enjoy our long days.
This evening I made a special trip to the store to buy ‘juicing” veggies... carrots, beet, turnip, parsnip, green pepper and fresh ginger. I already had celery and onions. I’ve got a craving that must be fixed. The sweet red peppers were $2.79 each, not organic and looked puny, so I didn’t buy one. There is little that gets me up and going like a big glass of fresh vegetable juice with a juiced cube of ginger and a clove of garlic. WOW! Some day I’m going to buy a really good juicer and enjoy my juices even more.
Shortly I’m going to make a fruit/tofu smoothie using pineapple juice, fresh strawberries, a banana and tofu. I might throw in a few frozen blueberries, too. For some odd reason, I sleep better and have fewer stomach problems when I eat something before bed. It may defy nutritional logic but it works for me. Till next time…goodnight!
