I went through a half day of testing on my heart last Friday. The nurse called this morning and said all was normal. I am praising God for those results as I know it is his work in me. Although I suffer daily with terrible pain from the arthritis,and fibromyalgia...God continues to bless me with good test results in other vita areas of my body. My blood pressure has even been amazing the doctor. He commented that it was almost too good.....hum, I didn't know that was possible :) So, I now know all the huffing, puffing and feeling sick to my stomach while out trying to shop or even just walking from one place to the other is stress from all this weight I carry. I still know that isn't a good thing and yes,it stresses my heart, yet my heart is strong and hopefully won't fail me anytime soon. I pray some of the weight will come off after the bariatric surgery and then I can have surgery to replace my knees. That's the plan...God willing. I just want to be a healthy vessel for God to work through. I now know he has a plan for my future, which doesn't include being confined to my bed or a wheelchair.
Picked up some more plants recently,and the cute " Miss Mouse " to the right is a string holder....she is supposed to have a little pair of scissors for her eye glasses. I liked her colors....retro...right? The string ball fits through the back and comes through the front through a little hold in the top of her bag. I am about to re-pot this Kalanchoe...I love these plants....they come in all different colors. I got my daughter Regina a yellow one for her recent birthday.
I really like this page below from pinterest...I believe it was! I weeded through my own books again last week. I took away about 30...sized them down quite a bit! I won't be buying anymore for sometime. I have many good books to read now,thanks to my daughter and some wonderful blogging friends who sent me some lovely books. Thanks again ladies...you know who you are :) I would make some changes to the below arrangement,but I still like the style very much.
And this is from my kitchen .......
Regina and I stopped at one of our favorite sales after the doctor's visit on Friday. It was the Spring sale of the Salvations Army Ladies Axillary. Between us we spent under four dollars. I only got a few things,and will share them in another post. I wasn't fit much for looking or shopping after all those test,but it was fun to stop by,and I ran into a friend while I was there, I had a chance to say hi,and see her sweet baby girl again. I hope you all have a lovely week....until next time....blessings
