My, My what a day…

javaI woke up and found myself lost and confused. This happens when the weather changes so drastically, I become sick. I never had this issue until I had all the heart attacks and brain tumor, many years ago. After trying to die a bunch of times, I have become very sensitive to weather changes. It gets scary sometimes and this morning was one of those times…

Boza is tuned into these things and he never pushes to go outside or walk very far when he knows that I am sick like this. This morning he was that way and I am thankful. I still managed to get to the Big Village and now that I am back to normal, I am not sure how I did it but I did. I ended up sleeping the day away and feel okay to kinda good now, but the power was off for most of the day, internet was down until just a few minutes ago and it stormed and stormed and stormed. That is the weather change that knocked me down and it was a terrible storm. It was so bad that Boza, being the bravest dog in the world, had to sit in my lap and shake like a leaf…

What a brave dog!

I use to never have issues with weather changes and I thought that to feel bad when the weather changes is old wives tales. Then one day, I thought I was having a heart attack (after six, you get paranoid) and found myself in really bad shape. It took several of these instances to figure out what was happening and with that realization, I am able to keep it under some control. Today though, it took me out of the equation…

Believe you me, it is no old wives tale. It is a reality and no matter the cause and effect, sometimes it gets rough and is equated to being drunk. It effects my blood sugar levels, my heart rate, my blood pressure and many other things…

The storm today was just short of a hurricane, as Russians call these storms. Better yet, to call it a almost tornado and I truly wondered if the roof that I installed and the one on the house would stay put? It did and I am thankful and not a leak anywhere inside…

I am getting ready to cook some chicken gizzards and red peppers. I decided that Boza and I will watch a movie tonight after walking one last time. Sometimes you have to stop and smell the coffee and I did just that; drank a cup of coffee and it was so good…

I hope tomorrow is better weather wise than today, but we did get tons of water for the gardens…

    Back in NY years ago I’d find the berry patch by smell – later on in Georgia, too – I love wild strawberries.
    Kyle, you know yourself – you did the right thing by staying low all day – I do that quite often when I don’t feel up to par…
    You’re not alone in this world, my dear – believe me.

    How’s does this grab you – my house last night was 108 degrees – slept in the bathrub of cold water and woke up even more wrinkled. It is 8:43 now in the ayem and already 103 outside…inside here it is in the high 90′, tolerable.

    Marion, How does this grab you! 🙂

    12 degrees Celsius at noon today and two more days of the same weather. It is interesting, the villagers all have on winter coats and such. To me it is perfect weather and I can move around without heatstroke. Going to check the strawberries today and maybe get to pick some. I see the sneaks are snooping in the woods and they will grab all the strawberries in two seconds flat…

    Stay cool, that heat worries me. Yes when I lived in Georgia, I use to smell the strawberries and pick some to eat for lunch now and then. Georgia was a beautiful state, humid but beautiful and that Kudzu vine was amazing…
