I finally ventured out of my house yesterday,
I was feeling somewhat better and thought it best to get out for some fresh air.
It had been raining for three days, and I had been housebound.
This is my next door neighbor,
He is a metal smith,
and one of the nicest people you could ever meet.
He was in his shed that he built to do all this metal stuff,
and I was sitting on tthe bench in the back yard,
the warmest spot in the yard,
I was quiet, Dennis did not know I was there
when all of a sudden my dog Kula
ran to the back gate and there is Dennis giving him treats,
and loving him up and talking to him like he was a baby.
I watched for a few minutes, It made me smile.
He did not know I was in the yard, and I said,
Dennis your spoiling him.
you should have seen the look on his face,
totally busted, it reminded me of that commercial
where the one guy is loving up the cat,
Dennis had his own music playing,
it was nothing like this.
creedence clearwater, van morrison,
and he was banging his hammer beating the metal in rythym with the music,
Every once in a while he would break into his own rendition of the song,
I sat on my bench smiling as he was so into what he was doing,
So I worked in my flower beds getting them ready for the season,
He is usually pretty close, while I was in one of the flower beds
a huge bug startled me, and I had a cataplexy spell, and I was thinking
as I was falling be careful of the metal, I did not fall on the metal
but fell on the hoe, so I skinned myself all down one arm.
you know of all the times I have fallen that is the first time I had hurt
myself, and there was my dog licking the back of my arm.
When I got back up, I went and sat back on the bench,
and my dog came with me and we sat there together,
listened to the music and the banging,
After about ten minutes I decided
I better go have a sleep to avoid
any other Cataplexy spells
during the evening.
I awoke tonight felling a little stiff and sore
from falling, my husband is around for the next
three days, so hopefully we can get the yard
So I am wishing you all a wonderful weekend,
I hope you embrace your days and make the most of them.
