Since you like plants you will be happy to know how excited I was this morning when I saw that my orchid bloom opened up over night. I was noticing yesterday that it was getting close. I had to take a picture of it, I was just so amazed, I was afraid that it had gotten too cold.
Did I tell you that I live in Michigan? Another thing that we have in common is that I have fibromyalgia too. I am on the fibro forum a lot. That is something else. I have had it since about 2002. Somewhere along in there, but I didn't get diagnosed until about 2003. The doctor couldn't figure out what was wrong with me after a lot of tests. Well I should say I couldn't figure it out. Then one day she checked my tenderpoints and I about jumped off of the table. Then she told me what she thought I had. I had never heard of it so I had her write it down. Shortly after that I got ahold of the fibromyalgia network and got some information on it and started getting their newsletter, That was where I learned about it. I spent the first two years in bed, I don't go much either, groceries, medications, and to the laundromat, oh yes, doctor, psychiatrist and psycologist. That is my life. I do have two greenhouses and a garden spot. Flowers that I planted years ago. Perennials and some re seeding annuals.
My husband and I just made a group effort of making scallop potatoes and porkchops. Just threw it into the oven a few minutes ago. He is so good to me, we just got married in December, but have been together for seven years. He was so good to me when I was at my lowest. He has a lot of patience with me. I am very lucky.
i love nature and like to take walks too. I try to take my dogs when I go. They need exercise too. It has been a hard winter for walking the dogs. I can't wait for this cold spell to break. I am in northern lower Michigan.
I bet Jamaica is beautiful. You will have to tell me about it sometime. Looks like you moved from one extreme to another as far as the weather goes, in winter especially. We often have hot and humid summers. The humidity makes my fibro flare up just like the damp weather does. Do you ever go on the fibro forum?
I hope that you have a wonderful evening.
