Spanners In The Works

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     I used to write this every Sunday and I realize it has been only once in a while lately.  The past few months have been difficult at times – took me a long time to rest up after the flu in December.  But I learn something during that time – I found I coughed more at night and it was related to a dry mouth.  I tried Act lozenges when I went to be – I put them under my upper lip so I wouldn’t choke on it during the night.  I was amazed to find it stopped my cough and it went away faster than usual.  If I had gone to Doc Pierce, he would have given me an antibiotic, but I don’t want to use them unless I have to.  Then Eddie caught either a cold or something and this time I didn’t get it – you might say I went undercover.  That’s literally what I did at night.  I didn’t want him to breathe in my face so I put the covers over my head.  It seems to have worked because instead of catching everything coming down the pike, I missed it.

We’ve had crazy weather, sometimes some days are cloudy, others rainy, we have even have 70’s all the way up to 80.  We are back in cloudy weather and it has made me uncomfortable, not sure if it is change in pressure or just what it is.  I’m not the only one noticing  it -several people I know have mentioned it.  I’ve been doing much better, so it was quite a nasty surprise on Saturday to wake up with my knee so painful.  I had gotten up in the middle of the night and was fine – no idea what happened in the mean time.  I used my cane for the first time in a long time – it did lessen and I went out for a bit with Eddie.  I have no desire to repeat that again.

I am doing much better than I have been, I have been working with Dr. Cheryl with a new technique that teaches nerves new strategies.  I’ve noticed the past 3 or 4 weeks that my knees and legs are a lot better. Also, I am using CBD oil from both hemp (considered a supplement) and cannabis. I’ve been using it for a while but Eddie only found out when I was making a doctor’s appointment to renew my authorization.  He isn’t happy about it but I said “Why do you think I have been doing better?”  It isn’t addictive or do I get high.  I find the cannabis oil helps me sleep better and more comfortably while the hemp helps me be more alert and focused.  It isn’t cheap, but then again, I don’t use much at a time.  The hemp oil I bought this last time is from Amazon but I like the one I get from Dr. Cheryl better.

These days my computer is giving me fits.It takes forever to wind itself up so it will do things, Safari suddenly quits on me and I have to bring it up again.  It is so slow  that I sometimes think I spend more time watching the color wheel spin than I do actually using the computer.  For some reason, this little pocket of Century Link’s DSL is a very slow zone.  Why, I have no idea.  They advertise fast internet but an * that says “not available in some areas.  Guess where that is.  Plus, when Eddie and I are on the computer at the same time, it’s not very speedy at all.  For the moment, technology has defeated me but I won’t give up.

One of my clients has had a lot of problems ordering her lapel pins – it’s always work out well in the past but  for reason it has all gone kittywampus this time.  She’s upset, I am not happy and now Pete is very suspicious of the whole thing.  Right now the ball is in her court – not sure what will happen.  We have wasted a week trying to get it straightened, that means a week longer than it was going to take.  Sometimes I wonder if I am meant to be a businesswoman – or is it just the wrong business.

Flowers are blooming – the pink dogwood is going like crazy, the sculls were really lush this year until Eddie told Jorge to pull them out.  He left some clumps in different places – not quite the same.  I wanted to wait for another week or two when they had gone by.  The dark lilac is blooming, rhodos on the north side are in full bloom and the 2 pear trees have little fruit bits on them.  There are little nubs on the fig tree – not sure about the apple tree yet.

Eddie is working with the Highline Heritage Museum on 152nd and Ambaum.  He is helping with things about the airport and I suspect there will be other things as well.  It is due to open sometime in July, so he may be helping set up some of the displays.

I finished another post for my  – I’m a little behind on that as well.  I’m not sure what’s going on – I am not as on the ball as I used to be.  Not happy about it.
