Old MacDonalds Farm!
This is one of my paintings I have done and I decided to post it today.The painting reminds me that autumn is not too far away. I can not believe that we are already into the month of August. Soon autumn will be among us. I already have my Virginia Creepers with about half the leaves turning red. I am keeping a positive attitude and hoping that it will continue to be as nice and hot as it has been this past week. Today my sister in law and I went out to one of the local farms to pick some strawberries. I knew I was going to have a bit of difficulty, but I do try to push myself...I was finished by the time I got to the patch, picked about three quarters of a gallon and knew I was going to have trouble getting back to the car. As I was walking back ever so slowly, there were two lovely horses at the fence. I thought to myself, I should take a horse over to the vehicle. First of all, if I had the enegy to get on a horse, I would have energy to make it to the car, so as I am thinking this it strikes me a little funny picturing me on the horse, and then I dropped to the ground due to my cataplexy. It does not last long, so in a couple of minutes I was picking up the strawberries and still on a mission to get closer to the vehicle. My sister in law was now on her way too and she caught up to me just as I made it to the garage at this place. I asked if it was okay to sit on one of the chairs for a minute, and I rested for about ten minutes. I also got some lettuce that tasted awesome at supper. The man at the farm asked me if I had tripped, I just said that I think I better practice my dancing steps. We all laughed, my head slumped forward,but this time I did not fall so that was good. So even though it was hard for me I managed and knew that the next time I go there I will have to take my cane with me. I also forget how quickly I can loose my oomph! After we made it back to the city we went for Ice Cappucinos and brought them home and sat in the yard and had a visit. And then I had to have a nap or I knew there would be more spells in the evening. Everything worked out, had a nice evening...oh the couple at the farm were so cute, the wife was saying to the husband, oh take the afternoon off so we can go to the wedding, you work to hard. It made me smile, they reminded me of my parents. It was a good moment. It was a good day!And now I need a good sleep. Take care.
