I have started back at physio, one year since my operation

My new physio thinks she can help me achieve a pain free shoulder, that will be great if she can

I am back doing theraband exercises, starting from scratch and I will be seeing my physio every fortnight

Just putting my feet up after spending about 4 hours playing in dirt and flowers. I've finally finished my outside flower gardening and can't wait for things to take hold and take off.

So far I've planted three window boxes (on the front windows of my studio), two huge strawberry pots with flowers not strawberries, four big hanging baskets, one pedestal planter, potted several cuttings from my indoor plants that I rooted during the winter, and repotted a miniature rose.

The next projects on my list are to do some container vegetable/fruit gardening. I've already planted some strawberries in an upside down planter, a cherry tomato plant in a big pot, as well as a bush cucumber in another big container. Never heard of or had any experience with bush cucumbers but it sounded interesting and worth a try...just for fun. The strawberries are blooming and forming fruit. Yeah!!!!!

I have some roma tomatoes, some yellow straight-neck squash, sugar baby watermelon plants and some red raspberries that need to get into soil and hope to get them all happy by the end of the weekend.

Had a great time this morning and, of course, Bella was a fantastic helper and supervisor.

Yay Kylie, I am proud of you.

I have an appointment today with my physio (seen him on and off for years. This time he is going to work on my arthritic hands. We talked awhile ago about getting custom fit wrist braces so I am sure that will be a topic of discussion again. Anything that will give me freedom to type and to other things. This is being dictated to my dear TB this morning!

I am sitting in my nicely air-conditioned living room eating a romaine and avocado salad with blue cheese dressing.

Two (three?) 100+ degree summers with no air conditioning are now a thing of the past! Our new A/C unit (a free-standing indoor DeLonghi from Costco--it does vent to the outside through a window) isn't as powerful as forced air, but it was what we could afford and it keeps the living room a lot cooler than it has been!

It will also provide heat in the winter so we won't always have to run the big unit, and it humidifies and dehumidifies.

Glad you got A/C, Barbara!

My neighbors are on vacation, so I raided their rhubarb patch.

Actually I'm watching their house for them (which includes the rhubarb patch, the proceeds of which I will watch as I make a sauce with it later).

Thanks so much Laurie

I must admit it does feel good doing the theraband again, fingers crossed it is the answer

I hope your appt goes well, my mum has the same issue with her hands, I hope you can get some relief

This morning I am heading out to buy another birthday present (birthday in June), a pair of Levi jeans

It has been awhile since I have bought a nice new pair, so Steve said go and grab a pair for your birthday They are quite expensive, about $110.00 a pair, but they last for years...you just have to hope you dont lose weight or put weight on!

I hate trying on heaps of jeans, but looking forward to finding a pair that fit me just right

Is the rest of Australia in June already, too? Or just you?

Now if you are really organized, you make your birthday last for a week. Each day I get a present from a different person. One day my daughter, the next three days my sons, and then it is time for my daughter to take me out to dinner, then another present from or cards from friends, etc. Not a bad way to celebrate. And then at the end of the week we have a party.

Now next year I will be 75 and my daughter wants to hire a hall and have a big bash for me. She wants all the kids and their spouses, including ex's, grandkiddies, great grands, and all their spouses and kids. Then there are my neices, and nephew and their spouses and kids, and their grand and great grands and some of their spouses to attend. I would say that there will be more than 100-150 people. Between my sister and myself, we have quite as very large family. And folks wonder why I stopped giving Christmas presents. Personally, I figure having a birthday is no big deal. If you behave and live your life right, you will have a birthday each year. Just like it was intended to be.
