Too Cocky

Okay, I got a little too cocky yesterday, kind of down in the back and hip today. A day off and a few city chores as I moved around a bit slowly. At 70, I don’t get alone with the shovel and rake near as well as I once did. Actually, I think it was packing away stuff in the 5 gallon bucket that got to my hip, (Mostly pine needles and sand mixed). At any rate, it was a take-it-easy day. I think another night of rest will get me recovered enough to get going on something else.

The heat is starting to come back up a bit, making it into the 90s today. Give me more rain and cooler temperatures, please! Hey, one can wish 😀.

It is Wednesday and tonight is Nature and Nova on PBS, so that’ll be my evening entertainment. There isn’t much I watch on TV anymore, but I like those two shows.

Hopefully tomorrow will bring a more productive day, guess we’ll see.

Night Folks.

  1. Well, years do count John. I’m not seventy yet but also I feel I’m not twenty anymore. Oh! The swiftness of youth! 🙂 Luckely there’s no guy with a whip behind us forcing us to break our backs. A day rest, or two, or even three when needed, why not? The paradox is: the less time we got left, the more time we have on our side. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Peter, the old bones recovered in a day … except one, you can read about it in today post 😀. It is a good thing the guy with the whip is not about ….

  2. John, what are we going to do with you? 😜 it’s easy to overdo it! I enjoy any shows on PBS and because I grew up with it, I love Antique Roadshow. I’m all about nature shows and old westerns, lol. Please take care of yourself! I’m off to oncologist today and round 2 starts tomorrow! I’ll have to find some good shows as it will be in 90’s here. Ick! Keep the faith friend! ☺️

    1. Hi Karla, it is too easy to overdo things anymore, or so it seems. Karla, I hope that visit went well for you and the aftermath of it. Stay cool over your way 😀. It is in the 90s here too, hope the rain comes back ….

      1. Yes it is easy to overdo it (and I’m the pot calling the kettle black). My bloodwork was great at my appt. I began chemo today and the glucose level plummeted early. I’ll see an endocrinologist next Wednesday. The best news I received is that my youngest son’s transfer is Aug 31st (Whiteman AFB~Kansas City!). He and his family will only be less than 4 hours away. My oldest and his family will move from Alaska to Abilene (quite a stark contrast, lol) and only be 7 1/2 hours away…eventually. I’m staying positive and keeping the faith~even if I’m a bit nauseous and fatigued. It will be 100 degrees (actual temps) two days next week~slight chance of rain this weekend. Things are drying up! Please take care and happy July! ☺️💪🏻

        1. It is great that your kids are moving closer to you. Glad to hear that you are staying upbeat about it all, you show great strength.
          100℉ is not so good, I am lucky for now, and it is only hitting the 90s here. I hope you get some cooler weather soon, 100 is no fun. I will stay hidden for the holidays, and I hope you have a very nice 4th and a July that brings good things your way.
