Thinking of You!

Hello my Sweet Friends! Where do the weeks go,  I hope you are all well and enjoying the warmer weather. Hard to believe it's already June. I am still wondering where April and May went.

Wanted to share this crazy picture of my son Chad's cat Chester with you. I laugh every time I look at it. I have never seen any of my cats sit up like this. haha

I have been spending a lot of time in Austin at the Heart Doctor but last week he told me I did not have to return until July.  I am doing pretty good. As always I love each of you for the kind words of encouragement through your comments here and emails. Your the Best!

My big problem is trying to eat right and keep my sodium level to 1500 mg a day or under. As you know that is a challenge because everything has sodium. If I am lucky enough to find a product without it I do a Happy Dance right there in the grocery aisle.

If you have any suggestions for me or recipes to share with low sodium I would forever be grateful to you. I haven't joined a gym yet for heart rehab which I promise to do this week. Not sure how much I can use any of the machines but will find out if I get myself going.

I am mowing again which I did not think I would be doing. My bosses are the best and have been very understanding where my health is concerned. I do know I have to watch myself because our temperatures are already in the 90's on most days.

For six weeks we had nothing but rain here and one storm after another. I promised if it ever stopped raining I would never complain about mowing again. Well we have had one week of sunshine and the grass was so high out here that I had to mow everything at least twice. I am still mowing the back acres and noticed the front twenty already look like I never mowed. So much for my promise of not complaining.

I woke up one morning after high winds and lot's of heavy rain to most of my furniture blown off my
porch. Considering tornado's touching down in quite a few places I was very lucky. There are trees down in the back and I am still waiting on the tree man to remove them so I can get back there with the tractor.

This is the porch where everything blew off of. As you can see it was a mess.

The storm also brought inside creatures with way too many legs. As you can see by this picture I lost control of Spider Spray when I panic after finding a big hairy Tarantula on a chair near the front door.
This ole grandma lost it because my fear of  these big boys is close to my fear of snakes. Needless to say I killed him and my chair.  

That happened about 10pm one night and I did not sleep a wink that night because this is not the first one I had inside since all the rains. 

In between storms I did enjoy my life long friends Bonnie, Linda and Ruby for a girly weekend.
We try to do them whenever we can slip away. We were so busy laughing, playing cards, dominoes and talking that I didn't remember to take pictures. 

I have to say when I am with these three Sisters my problems are gone and all the laughter we share is a  Blessing to me. We call it our Sister weekends now because they are my sisters. I have known them since before I learned how to tie my shoes. haha..... As most of you know from other post Linda is married to my oldest Brother Billy.

So hope I haven't bored you too much. I mainly wanted to check in with you and please let me know how your doing. I think of you often and do Miss You.

I am grateful for your friendship and God has Blessed me many times with knowing you.

Love to all,

PS:  Thank you so much for your precious comments about Christ's wedding. She is over the moon happy which you know what that means to me. God Bless You!

It sounds like you are doing better so happy for you. that cat is so funny. But oh boy if I found that spider in my house I would have to move holy sh- -! when I see that I am thankful for the snow here we just don't have that kind of thing here. that spider could carry off that cute cat yikes!
I guess I just say eat fresh herbs can make a difference and learn how to use them to your liking.

Olga said...

OMG, Maggie. That spider!! And not the only one? There goes any trip to Texas I might have planned.
Wow, out on the tractor. You are amazing and so strong. Continued good health progress!

Julie's Lifestyle said...

Wow that is an amazing photo of the cat! Sorry to hear that the winds made a mess of everything. That spider is so big and scarry. I too would not get any sleep. So glad you had fun with your friends. Do take care.
Julie xo

Julia said...

A quick comment today... lack of time...
I'm so glad things are working well for you but that spider scares me. One of my blogger friend's husband just got bitten by a Black Widow and is still not very ill...

Cool cat photo.

Please take care of yourself. You've been missed very much.

Julia said...

Oops, I meant to say " he's still very ill" .
Please pray for his healing. Ron is his name.

I'll keep you in my prayers too.

I've had cats all my life and never had one to sit like that. lol We had lots of rain and storms down here in south Texas too. Hate to ever complain about rain because we beg every summer. Nice to see a post from you.

I have a new Dog he is so funny and he sits just like the Cat.
It's at last SUMMER. This weekend is the first that has had no rain.
What's causing such Crazy weather? Well, Enjoy the Sunday.

I can't believe I missed this post! I'm so glad you're feeling better and hopefully it will continue! We've had a ton of rain to...A few days of sun would be nice. Not as bad as what you're having down there. What a cleanup you'll be doing. Don't work to hard and take more time with your family and friends! Looks like you had a great time with your"sisters"! Take care dear Maggie!
