So glad I've learned to laugh at myself. There I was, bemoaning the 'fact' that there is 'nothing left to bloom' and yesterday, what do I find? A canna that I have been 'nursing' all summer now has buds!

What a difference a day makes!

That is awesome Pitmom. I have an orchid getting ready to bloom. This will be the third time. Which is awesome for me. It is a miniature and it is white. I have a small pink one too but I don't see any shoots at this time.

enjoy your canna!!!

Hugs, Karen...

Out shopping last weekend, I was looking at rug/upholstery cleaners and found one for $88. Lisa bought it for me and I think she thought it would just sit there and not get used. Well, I sure fooled her!

I've never used anything like this before. I only buy area rugs, as cheap as I can, and throw them out once they are 'done'. But, this time, I wanted to clean the sofa.

I am amazed! It turned out really well, considering it is 2 years old and hadn't been thoroughly cleaned this way before. It no longer stinks!

Now, I've put the new slip cover on it. Gray. To go with the new decorating theme. I love it!

Of course, no good deed goes unpunished...my knuckles are killing me...probably from gripping the cleaning tool. Waah! Gonna try an epsom salt soak while I 'recline on the sofa'!

Started more radishes on the porch. I need to transplant my lettuces--they are seedlings in the light box. This is an experiment to see if my little portable greenhouse will over-winter some veggies. The weather turned cool, finally--I am headed out to my garden plot to see how everyone is fairing. My late-planted summer squash is now bearing--there were 6 little bitty squash earlier this week.

Have a mammogram tomorrow-blech. Guess I have to--my mom had a masectomy when she was 84.

We were out on the trail riding last weekend, and I had a serious flat tire. We had just reached out turn-around point, when I noticed the tire was completely flat. We inflated it but it didn't hold air. So I got to sit by the river and people watch in the sun for a few hours, while BF rode back, got the car, and retrieved me. I need to get both tires replaced--no riding until that happens.

I have had pretty serious but ignorable anxiety for several weeks now. Well, perhaps I ought NOT to ignore it, but it is what I can manage at the moment.

6 days OFF of Latuda (20mg). 3 days ON a new med for Hypothyroidism (T3 Syndrome). So far I have energy in my limbs that I have not had in 9 months. We'll see what happens from here. Side Effect: Headache. Feeling hopeful.

sounds promising kelli. keep strong. i always see a sign of a side effect being par for the course, and mostly a good sign, because most meds that i have used and had success with all came with the complimentary side effect or 2.

Myself, I'm envious! So glad you're doing 'winter gardening'. Cool weather crops do well in fall! Fewer bugs too!

Only in the 60's today and cloudy. Decided to make baked ziti for dinner...daughter will be picking up some bread to go with it. Then, my little family will head over to "The Haunted Museum" for some spooky fun...it's free with food donation for the pantry.

Going to be helping my friend with a costume for a party she is going to in a couple weeks. Witches and Warlocks is the theme and I think she'd be perfect as Ursula the Sea Witch from Disney's The Little Mermaid! Will let you know how it comes out.

Good luck with the new med Kelly. I hope it continues to help you.

Happy Gardening Myself... Our season's over now. Will probably snow within this month. Well, I wouldn't be surprised if it did. Hopefully not until November...

Pitmom, Happy sewing. I hope that the costume turns out and that you share with us. You are always doing something interesting.

Turtle, you should be getting up about now. I hope you have an awesome day!

Hugs to all!!!

HT - thank you. The headache subsided...yay! I might be able to tolerate this Thyroid med. It's pretty obvious to me now that I simply cannot take AP's. They are much too sedating for me. I wish I could take Lamotrogine. Most people do well on it. I got that dreaded rash. I have scarring on my shoulder. The P-doc dx it as "the Lamictal rash." PCP doc dx it as "Shingles." Anyway, I am still hopeful and also encouraged b/c "Low T3 syndrome" can actually be the cause of depression. I think at the least, hypothyroidism and my bodies inability to convert T4 to T3 is a contributor to the extreme fatigue.

Karen - thank you! I will keep you posted. smile

Cloudy, damp and cool here today. Really dreary. Sometimes I feel like the sun is trying to peek out though.

Not too much going on. Lazy Saturday.

I hope you all are having a good day.

Miss you Joyce... I hope you are okay...

HI everyone.

Still messing with the Dilantin, not working yet, so on I go.

Stood up for myself this week when someone was quite inappropriate with me. I am getting so better at this..
still bothered me for a few days, but through journaling I confirmed that I knew it was not a nice thing done to me and that I was correct in me actions, which were calm, controlled and firm.

Peace

So, I'm at therapy yesterday and I tell him [therapist] that Neuro wanted me to reduce Dilantin to 3 days a week, my choice of days and see how it worked.

Weill I did not like that idea, so I have been self medicating every day, only earlier in the day, not working and I see the expression [just fleetingly] on Fritz's face. Last night I did not sleep again. Now I realize the doc is right.

Historically, reduced doses of meds work better for me. Dilantin is a med that builds up and stays in you body.

Do not know what I was thinking.. severe pain and frustration I guess made me irrational.

I am so lucky to have such a good relationship with an awesome therapist! Gratitude.

Listening to Bob Dylan and Foy Vance, folk and Blues. Vances, "Make it rain" just rocks the soul!

Peace all

I am glad you found the right dose Trina. Sometimes we need to listen to the doc, but if you wouldn't of tried, you wouldn't of known. So experience can be a teacher.

Love Bob Dylan... Love Folk and Blues...

Have a good day. Have a good night Turtle...

Hugs and Happy Sunday...

You also HT

Thanks for the support, feels good.

Read an article on mindfulness and peoples concerns on ADVERSE effects from the meditations, people with trauma sometimes have.

Apparently this is rare, and happens mostly at retreats when DIY meditations are ongoing through out the day.

It is important that anyone with trauma of any kind, do these activities within therapy.

A lot of people have the belief that meditation solely is for calming and peace.

This is not true. In actuality mediation, also aids in processing and putting us in touch with dark feelings and negative thought loops.. So we can see them for what they are, just feelings, the past, not real. This is not an easy thing to deal with.

IF you don't have the skills the step back, breathing and disengage with self-kindness, you kind end up in downward spiral.

So in the end. Educate your self on all points of mediation of all kinds. Talk and work with a therapist if at all possible, if not talk to your family doctor..

Stay safe everyone.

I will post this the board also

Peace
Trina

Turned 57 on Saturday.

Been working on organizing the shed. Bought another shelving unit, set it up yesterday. Today I'll buy the plywood and cut it to size, put it atop the 3 shelving units and store the patio cushions up there.

Brought in my bin of 'winter' clothes and will swap out the 'summer' clothes and put the bin back in the shed.

The weather here in NJ is gorgeous! Hope to see the meteor shower at the end of the week.

All of the Halloween decorations are up and I'll be starting the costumes tonight.

My friend gave me a "Butterfly Book" for my birthday. The very next day, a beautiful butterfly was sunning itself on the catmint. My daughter took a picture of it and I was able to identify it as a "Buckeye". What fun!

The mums and Montauk daisies continue to show off, as does the pineapple sage and the ornamental grasses. The leaves are changing, too. Quite a colorful display!
