Sept 22-Easy day, no surprise!

Tuesday, September 22, 2020

Why does it hurt worse the next day? Trying to let you know..that was not a good thing you did!
Well I think part of the issue is solved by knowing the Why of why it happened. I did have to laugh as I was talking to Angela. I said..you know you are getting old when if you fall everyone runs to help you instead of laughing at you!! Well I must not be old since no one came.
She frowned and said did you ask for help..did you call for help..how can we know !! The huge thump from my body hitting the ground?? There's a hint!! heee hee. I thought it was funny, she frowned and just said..stop fallling down and throw those jeans away!
Twas a lovely Fall day and because I was moving a bit slower than usual I actually got to enjoy it perhaps a bit more! We are getting the big Blue Jays down from the mountain and I expect soon to see the tiny Mountain Blue Birds coming thru. I guess it will be time to bring the Hummingbird feeders in soon. I usually leave them a bit longer so any stragglers can have a snack on their journey South.
I have not yet taken "Pearl", my new Subby up in the mountains yet. But I think I may head that way one day this week. A few pictures of the color and some fresh mountain air is sounding really good.
It is funny how when someone or something is gone there are those waves of "I miss you" that hit. Last night I was sitting by the pond and had a big wave of that for Jim,. We loved sitting by the pond with coffee or tea and enjoying the fading light of day. Then as I was closing up the pens I looked at the corral and thought how sad it was that it was empty. Never be the same but I do think I will in the Spring get another donkey or two from BLM. I know that Angela and I will be the ones to feed and tend, but I think she will enjoy it as much as I do. Some thing to think about.
Well the 5% Challenge for Fall starts in only a few days, excited to get it rolling!!
Enjoy your evening..and rest well. As always ..stay safe !!

    The delayed "soreness" for me began in late 50's. Go out and start a new workout, chop up wood etc and the next night I became stiff and sore.
    Falling is scary now.

    I love your animals. Please keep sharing. WOW I was thinking of Mom yesterday too. A bill came with her name on it. I finally had the nerve to call and tell them to take her name off now. Time marches on .. Major Hugs,

    No one comes to gather me after a fall either. I can even yell out when it happens. Someday I will be in some big trouble from a fall and will be in a heap for a bit.

    I totally understand. I have had days where I miss any one of the cats or dogs who has graced my life with their presence as if they had just left me. Let's not even talk about the people we love who have passed away.

    I cannot wait to hear about the donkey adventures next spring! No, they won't be Skinner, but they will be themselves and bring their own special joy to your (and our) life.

    Hope the aches and pains are better tomorrow.

    Oh tomorrow will be the WORSE Day (Weds) for the pain than you'll slow start to heal. UGH YIKES!! I over did a move on Sunday (LOL REALLY lifting my knees all the way up to my chest while standing!) YO!! I am paying for it, but it's so much better today!! WOOHOO!! Kiddo we aren't in our 20's any more!!

    Oh Katie hon, I heart aches for you to lose a dear spouse is so hard (and you already knew this).

    Ohhhh I HOPE you do get a donkey or 2 or even 3!! I MISS the stories, and no , no Donkey can replace Skinner, any more than Izzy replaced Wincey. BUT!! Izzy (LOL who's STARTING at the screen as the letters are going across it as I type,,, I am sitting here dying in laughter!! LOL She's so SERIOUS as she watches them!! LOLOLOL) doesn't replace Wincey (AKA Princess, Princey) but Izzy sure as ever has added something to my life that just brings delight (LOL AND LOTS of GIGGLES!! The FOOL is still STARING at the screen watching,, ahhhh LOLOL now she's trying to catch the letters with her paws. LOL TO FUNNY).
