Just "Same ol' same ol'" - and waiting for FALL!

It's been a couple of weeks now - and not a whole lot of news to share.  Neither of us have had a whole lot of energy , and it's been so hot!  And still is!! 

Rich has been out doing the fertilizer, epson salts on the palms,  and spraying more weed killer, but it seems like one day outside working and the back and legs bother him for a couple of days.  The muscle ache in my thigh continues, as does the cramping in the calves and so I've been getting in some afternoon naps.   We both had doctor appts - Rich with the Gastroenterologist - following his colonoscopy, and looks like he has to continue every year as they continue to find, polyps that are cancer forming.  I had my first visit with the Cardiologist who confirmed with another EKG that I did indeed have a heart attack, and put me on the baby aspirin a day routine.

Rich sees the cardiologist this week, and I have an echo cardiogram and a two day chemical stress test between now an the 25th.

But in the last 4 or 5 days we've both found a bit more energy. Meals are getting back to normal - Rich's Pizza ( I had eggs and fruit), Chicken Chile and Cornbreat,  Peanut Butter cups for desert, and today Meatballs for the Linguini and Garlic Bread tonight.  Last Monday we did meet up with Buddy and Diane here in Lake Placid at the Golden Corral.  Diane still remains in good spirits, but continues to have more difficulty walking, and it won't be long before she'll need the wheel chair.  The clowns are back in town, so hopefully we'll get together with them one day soon.

Have not seen much of the Blue Heron, Whistling Ducks  etc.... but in the last week or so we've been entertained by the beautiful Cardinal on the back deck, and the Anhinga, drying his  wings after fishing off the dock.

And yesterday we actually got back outside and trimmed more of the palms, bushes in the yard.

No plans for anything exciting in the near future!  Guess I'll get started on my Christmas Shopping!
