I'm walking for exercise again

 

I wanted to sit out on my front porch on Sunday, Mother's Day. But I kept waiting for the 70 degrees forecast, and the windy cloudy 60s just weren't as welcoming. I finally did have a half hour in a bit of sunshine!

I walked down our steep hill, then up half way, stopped to photograph some flowers, then came the other half way back home. Whew...good for me!

The porch is looking a bit more welcoming I think.

There goes the flame azalea, and all those thin leaves are promising the day lilies.



Yes the lilies of the valley have bloomed a bit...it's past their peak.

I stuck my nose and the iPhone down among them...got the picture, but my nose is still out of whack.
That's from the pneumonia, I got tested and didn't have COVID.

Even picking one flower and bringing it home, I failed to smell a thing.



This is the last azalea bush still blooming. Sorry to lose these beautiful colorful blooms for another year.

This is the anniversary of my having a stent inserted via my veins into my heart, which was the result of having a heart attack that was not like the medical descriptions usually say. But they do admit women experience different symptoms. Mine were 3 days of pain in neck and shoulders such that I couldn't sleep. Even though I went to my primary care doctor, he just changed one of my blood pressure medicines. So I got a friend to finally drive me to the ER, and they tested and tested and tested and finally found I didn't have COVID, and had had a heart attack.

No wonder I feel so good that I'm still walking around and talking to you all here!

Today's quote:
“This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet.”

    1. That's my hope also. Though I do have a good friend who lost her sense of smell years ago. I guess it isn't the end of the world!
