I am sitting here trying to get up the energy to put my daily piles of meds together. I take them now at night and feel so much better. Winthrop is not listening to me. So I have adjusted my meds to what makes me feel so much better.

The problem starts with all my visits to the ER and overnight stays. Some doctor that has not really read my file, decides to add another BP med to my already large pile of them. "Well, one med isn't doing the job, lets add another stronger one and still keep her on what she is getting." This happens every time I go to the ER. So if I take them the way they are prescribed, I end up with my BP plummeting. All Winthrop did was move some of them around, not reduce the dosages. And no one is taking into account that these meds were prescribed when I was more than 20 lbs. heavier. I am a very small person. And when I go to Winthrop for my vitals to be read, my BP is always 120/60. Which is a very good reading for me. Sometimes the 60 is even lower. And that is the number that really counts. So I will make my own adjustments and feel so much better.

Just going to set my TV to record the old (1944) film, LIFEBOAT, with Tallulah Bankhead and Walter Slezak. Its on from 7 to 9 in my area on TCM. What a beautiful day, I just got done weeding the garden and deadheading all the flowers. Looks so nice. The only trouble I had was trying not to get stung by all the bees.

A study showed that bees are attracted to blue flowers more than any other color. So don't wear blue when you are out there. Green is the best color to wear. Darker colors work best when gardening. Also no perfume of any scent. This includes soap. No, I am not suggesting staying dirty. Just rinse off thoroughly when you shower.

Down south most folks paint the color of their porch roofs green. Mother Nature is not too fond of green flowers. The leaves of plants are green. Have you ever seen a bee trying to get nectar from the leaves of flowers? Makes sense to me.

I am wearing blue jeans and a blue and white stripe shirt, no wonder I was having trouble.

I got both sets of outside steps swept. Of course, every time I do this we get a windstorm. Removed the dust gathered in the fans and am about to get ready to make dinner.

I amazes me how much those fan blades catch. And they can be so hard to get really clean. The dirt of them always seems greasy.

When I moved down south, people told me to paint the porch roof blue, so it looks to insects like the sky and they won't build a home there. And bees don't try to get nectar from leaves because leaves don't have nectar and its associated scent. Bees follow scent to nectar.

I just made a posting of a sausage balls recipe and will be making these for dinner! I have some brown and wild rice to put them on and I will put DA's pasta sauce on them.

I am very hungry!

Your friend,
