I’ve injured my right shoulder and neck. Again. How? Earlier this week we had bought 6-40 lb bags of water softener salt and a 50 lb bag of sunflower seeds for the wild birds at Ace. It was so hot by the time we got home I put off unloading the truck. Naturally, I forgot they were back there. Yesterday morning we needed to run errands in town, so, in the drizzling rain, we both proceeded to put the bags in the storage shed. Well dummy me, I got too rambunctious, lifting at rapid speed, and put my shoulder out. Now I’ve got that biting pain from an old injury. Why? ‘Cause I’m stupid, that’s why. Sometimes I forget I’m not 18 anymore. 😀
I had dumped all the cookies off this laptop in preparation for taking it in for repairs. It’s a security thing I had been taught to do before any repair work is to be performed. The cooling fan is rattlin’. When it overheats, it suddenly shuts down. Very annoying and probably not too good for it. So, we drove all the way to Waycross in the rain, in the morning heavy traffic, to drop it at the only shop around and the stinker wasn’t even open!!! This happens so often here it seems. And, no, it’s not because of the head cold hysteria plandemic this time. Small businesses have been like this since we moved to Southeast Georgia in 1993. Good work ethics are definitely becoming a rarity in these modern times. It’s no wonder so many of them go belly up in the first year.
Disappointment in check, we headed towards the Home-20 in the now lighter traffic but still raining and stopped at the local meat market. The order wasn’t ready and had to wait. And wait. And wait. That’s Ok, we’ve got time, but it was setting the pace for the day. Back home I started inputting the passwords at my websites, and some of the passwords didn’t work. “Now what!?” I yelled at no one in particular. So, I had to keep fiddlin’ with this dadgum thing. Now because I got impatient, I’m locked out of one of the websites, and, like I said, the pain had took over, which put me down for the count. Couldn’t move without being in discomfort. Stopped what I was doing because I had to put the heated bean bag ❤️🔥 on my shoulder (old injury-heat / new injury-cold), use the massager to stop the ✨ crackling noise in my neck and seeing stars ✨ from the muscle clinching, take a pain killer, and sit v.e.r.y s.t.i.l.l. like a Good Little Do-Bee. 🐝 I’m happy, it just weighs on my mind when this happens. The pain brings back such unhappy memories of sitting around or trying to sleep for days on end in agony. It’s my own fault, though. I know. I swear, sometimes I’ve got the memory and the patience of a 2 year old.
It just seems like it was one thing after two others yesterday.
As compensation last night, not only did my super sweet, loving, angel, husband cook one of his usual award winning suppers, he also cleaned up for moi. (That’s usually my job.) Isn’t he a gem? 💎 And I promised 😇 on a stack of Bibles to not lift anything heavy like that again ……. until next time. 😂 😜
Anyway, on to something happier.
On one of my evening prayer walks the other day, I noticed that many of our native “Spurred Butterfly Pea” are in bloom. Sorry the picture’s not too good. The light was too harsh. There’s more about them here. The flowers have a soft lilac color. They’re pretty for such a tiny flower. And for me, their appearance, like the Sulfur Butterflies, always denote that Summer is heading towards the end, for which I am very grateful.
Which brings me to the end of my post, for which I’m sure YOU are grateful. LOL Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is truly blessed!
