I woke up early again--my feet have been doing a lot of jumping again. Stupid feet! I think it is the sudden change in the weather--they are great barometers--just not my best friends at the moment!
I use this time to think about things, and after all these years there are so many memories and hopefully many new ones to create as I go forward. I have had such an interesting life, with a lot of adventures, and at times, a bit of sorrow--but it has balanced itself out with good friends, loving family and precious moments. I guess I'd have to add there has been a lot humour here to!! Humour plays a large part in my psyche. It makes me feel good. So when I say to Chris, as I have been lately, "I don't feel a lot of humour today" It makes us both sad.
I have been suffering from a side-effect to an antibiotic which was prescribed for a rash that appeared on my legs. After almost finishing the medication, which had various agressive side effects on me, I suddenly started to develop a rash on both of my arms. This rash became more painful than the original complaint! The doctor prescribed an ointment, (probably afraid to combat with yet another antibiotic) and I am gradually healing--but it had been especially annoying. Don't you just hate that!
Before I went to the doctor we stopped at a chemist shop last Sunday in desperation, and he prescribed for me a stronger anti-histamine, combined with creme which contains amongst its healing agents - calamine lotion- the good ol' stand-by! It has been these two products that have really come to my rescue.
At the moment the rash on my arms is clearing - it's about time!- and I am beginning to feel my ol' self again. I have missed me.....

I hope you enjoy the photos, as the trees and flowering shrubs change here, I will include them...but for now- except for my stupid kicking feet, I'm going to try to enjoy what this day brings. I hope you do too!
