Long time, no post. I've been very busy between my garden, Mom's garden, Dr.'s appts, household repairs, etc. I've done a lot - yet I have not been able to feel any sense of accomplishment. Usually doing things gives me a boost, allowing me to do more. Not this Spring. I think my spring has sprung.
And lately I've been dealing with some kind of 'spell' : dizziness, weakness, clumsy, easily angered, sometimes near tears. Sometimes hard to catch a breath. Sleeping doesn't seem to help. And what I have always called 'crying tired'.
I'm feeling a little better today - some dizziness, but a little more 'in synch' with things, more adept. You ever get spells when you are at all odds with the world? You can't catch a break? Can't focus and whatever you do at that time turns to crap? I hate those spells. And nothing seems to help except sit down, don't make any important decisions or take on anything new, and ride it out.
I hope the ride is coming to the end soon.
To list my recent activity seems overwhelming right now, so I will post dribs and drabs as soon as I find motivation. I don't feel depressed per se, but lethargic, unmotivated, uninterested. I do what needs be done, but with no joy.
I have an annual appt with my cardio next week. If I'm not better, I'll mention this fatigue to him.
Meanwhile, I'm still here, still plugging away - in spite of the attitude. Stay tuned for (hopefully more uplifting) future posts...
New blog header - that's a Great Blue Heron in the bottom center. Saw it wandering around the back lawn yesterday.
Meanwhile - here's how the container veg garden (spaRRows) is coming along.
