SUN AND WARM TEMPS...PLEASE!!!!

WELL, THE SUN IS SHINING TODAY BUT THE TEMPERATURE IS ONLY 32*F. THIS IS NOT EXACTLY CONDUSIVE TO OUTDOOR WORK, AT LEAST NOT FOR ME. I MIND THE COLD SOMETHING WICKED. ALSO GARDENING IN A SNOWSUIT AND MITTS JUST DOES NOT SEEM RIGHT SOMEHOW....LOL!! I DID GET A COUPLE OF HOURS IN YESTERDAY BUT HAD TO COME IN BECAUSE I WAS CHILLED TO THE BONE. I WAS SITTING ON THE GROUND PRUNING MY SPIREA BUSHES. THEY SUFFERED A TERRIBLE AMOUNT OF WINTER KILL THIS YEAR. I HAVE HAD THEM FOR YEARS AND THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN THIS BAD. HOWEVER, THERE IS A LOT OF NEW GROWTH UNDERNEATH SO THIS INTENSE PRUNING WILL ALLOW THEM TO GROW. IF, AND THIS IS A BIG IF, IT GETS A LITTLE WARMER I WILL GO OUT AND DO SOME MORE WORK. I AM NOT USE TO DOING A LITTLE AT A TIME. I LIKE TO GO OUT AND SPEND THE ENTIRE DAY. OH, WELL, I'LL TAKE WHAT I CAN GET.
I HAVE MY DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENT TODAY. HE WILL HAVE ALL MY LAB RESULTS AND MY EKG. I HOPE HE CAN TELL ME WHAT IS WRONG OR GIVE ME A CLEAN BILL OF HEALTH. I AM STILL NOT THRILLED WITH MY BLOOD PRESSURE IT IS AVERAGING 144/80. I AM ALSO RETAINING A GREAT DEAL OF FLUID. USUALLY, I CAN CONTROL THIS TO SOME DEGREE BY DRINKING MY DAILY 70 TO 80 OUNCES OF WATER. BUT FOR SOME REASON IT IS NOT WORKING. I WAKE UP EVERY MORNING WITH ALL THE MARKINGS FROM THE BED CLOTHES. OH, WELL, JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE.
HUBBY HAS ALMOST FINISHED HIS GARAGE. IT LOOKS GREAT! WE ARE NOW LOOKING FOR A NICE WINDOW BOX FOR THE FRONT WINDOW. WE ALSO WANT SOMETHING DECORATIVE TO HANG IN THE CENTER AT THE TOP.
WELL, IT IS TIME FOR BREAKFAST, TUMMY IS GROWLING.

BRIGHT SKIES AND SUNSHINE FOR ALL MY FRIENDS TODAY. DEBBIE

This has been such a challenging year for just about eveyrone I know, horrible unseasonable weather all over the place. I feel almost bad for complaining that it\'s chilly and raining here, but warmer then you were, lol...course you have the sun which brightens up the mood even if it is a bit on the cold side.
I can see that the rain is making things grow like crazy outside, the grass and weeds are doing particularly well right now. I\'m going to set my baskets out for a bit of rain water but don\'t want them to chilled and wet. At least the crazy wind has stopped for now.
I sure hope the doctor can figure out what is going on with you. At least that lower reading on your b/p is only 80 which is what the pressure is when your hearts at rest, very scarey when that starts spiking up.
