I had taken these pictures a few months ago. .
and had not found a reason to post them. .
except .. .
now this is what my back feels like. .
I know that God is teaching me how much I need to appreciate the good health. .
I usually have .. .
and to appreciate. . .the pain the others have. I am thankful.
Yesterday. . .I went to my chiro. . .Terry took me. .
we ended up going in the truck. .
because I could not crouch down to get into the lowered Trailblazer. .
Imagine seeing him give my bottom a boost. .
while I pulled on the "never ever needed as much as now" hand grips.
So. . after the appointment. .. I had considerable less spasms.
I walked the property. . as if I would give birth in the next hour.
Then. . .the nicest thing happened.
Friends of ours. . who we had dis invited. .
called to say they were bringing Chinese.
I got myself into a chair. . and didn't move from 7 until 11.
Earlier in the afternoon . . .I had. . in one of my more flexible moments. .
mixed up a batch of dough that you can find today on the MGCC.
Easy peasy. . if a girl with back spasms can do it. . so can you.
My beloved and my girlfriends husband. .
offered to put the dough on pans for shortcake.
I told them what to turn the oven to. . .and told them to shape the dough. . however they saw fit.
They "sugared" the berries and whipped some cream.
The presentation was awesome. ..
and since I was the girl with issues. .
they offered the shortcakes and the berries and the whipped cream to me first.
They began to plate theirs while I took a taste.
I allowed my tongue to taste one berry. . (even though it is dreadfully rude for the hostess to start eating dessert before the guests have their dessert on their plate).
I said. . ."STOP"
"you used salt. . .instead of sugar"
They did. . .poor fellas.
Fortunately. . my beloved had picked up the large container of Strawberries from the stand down the road. .
Fortunately .. .I had put. . a 1 litre of whipping cream on the grocery list that I had sent with my beloved the night before.
Fortunately. . .I had taken only one half of the massive shortcakes they had offered me.
So. . it was all good.
They went back to the kitchen. . and sliced more berries. .
and whipped more cream. . .
and used sugar.
My back did not seem to have proper appreciation for the 7 - 11 sit.
My beloved is gathering the eggs. .
and when he is done. .
he'll hoist me once again in the truck. .
and take me to the chiro once more.
. . . .
later in the afternoon ..
I went and saw Dr. Tony .. and had a very thorough spinal adjustment . .
Oh . ..a wee bit of relief is so appreciated.
so .. . .one day at a time ..
When I can bend and wash my floors and clean the bathroom. .
I'll be one happy girl.
