a rainy day ramble
It's a grey, rainy day here in my little neck of the woods. It's been a good day to veg on the sofa, get my blog reader set up (I'm using bloglovin') and thought I'd put up a post. The past several days have been difficult. My endocrinologist started me on a new med and it is really taking it out of me. A panic attack on my way to the appointment wasn't a good start. But I'm muddling through...
Saturday morning I went to our local farmer's market. I hadn't been in quite a while and really enjoyed myself (despite my anxiety at the crowds of people). I purchased quite a load of good fresh food and some locally raised meats. Part of helping myself to feel better is to eat better. I feel like this is a good start. I'm trying to make certain to use it all up as I don't want to waste anything. (kale, collards, strawberries, baby spinach, broccoli, greenhouse tomatoes and cucumber, carrots, stew beef, cube steak and ground beef patties).
I also purchased a few plants, two lovely geraniums - one pink and one red, and a three pack of foxglove. I don't know what color the foxglove will be, but I like surprises like that. I'm planning to put them in with my hellebore and lily of the valley.
I hope that the coming week brings you all lots of sunshine and smiles.
