While the rain had finally stopped, it was too wet to do anything outside in the garden. My body wasn't working great, but I thought I could manage, so I said, "Let's go for a walk."
Someone in the neighborhood planted a riot of topsy-turvy color. I love it!
I managed almost two miles, which makes me happy, because that means I burned 200 calories, which means I can have my chocolate today. I try to do some kind of exercise each day, because as of a week ago I have decided to try again, seriously, to lose weight.
Losing weight is just part of my campaign to reclaim my mobility. Working with my general practice doctor, I now have had a hip x-ray, which shows severe Degenerative Joint Disease - that's what arthritis does to you - and I'm awaiting a call back from the orthopedic department. I also have a spine MRI scheduled for Thursday, and a phone appointment with a doctor in the spine clinic set for next Wednesday. Things are happening, although COVID does complicate everything. Meanwhile I'm hanging in there and doing what I can for myself.
Hanging is what's happening in the garden now too. With all of the rain, the pretty June flowers are bowed and even broken.
I'll have some propping up to do when everything isn't so heavy with rain water.
A walk about the garden is still a very pleasant thing to do though.
It's 1:00 now, my lunch time. I'll read the paper, have a little chocolate, and then read and putter the rest of the day away. Just hanging in there.
