I’m thankful for the pool. Between the soreness from the cording therapy and the all-over needle feeling when I’m hot (on the left arm only), the pool gives much needed cooling and therapy for stretching. I think I’m getting better range of motion (again). I lost much motion from the tightness of the lymph cords. But I can get my left arm almost overhead again. It hurts all the time. I think, even though it is very hot, I will try to bicycle more. I have not been doing as much of that and that may be why I’m having such difficulty getting going. Yes, I did a lot of bicycling last week. But that was not typical lately. I wish I could finish some new paintings that are ones I just need to do. I haven’t done much artwork just for myself. Artists need to do that.
I feel like I should do more in the gardens to help Frank…but I am losing interest. I guess I usually lose interest around July and August. Maybe it’s just a little sooner than most years. Let the gardens burn out until mid-August and then I can start the winter season. I need a break from the gardens too. They do look pretty this year with all the rain. I will have tons of harvesting work. Already Frank is hauling in blueberries, gooseberries, currents, etc. daily for me to put up.
