My week got started off on a good foot on Monday but on Tuesday I had to take myself to the doc. I have been having ongoing pain in my right calf and leg for awhile and I decided I better get it checked out. Diagnosis? Over-usage of my right calf muscles. If you have been a reader of mine for awhile you know I have a hard time being still and I am an avid exerciser. I exercise usually 5 to 6 days a week for an hour a day(not always but this is close). Well when he told me to not exercise for two weeks that just about killed me! You might as well have taken a hatchet and chopped off my head. He also put me on a steroid that I think is making me a little cranky! So, now I have to learn how to relax. This is what I have been trying to do...........
Find a comfy spot on the couch with a nice throw to wrap up in.
Throw in some warm cocoa in a cute snowman mug!
Light a Fresh Linen candle for a little fragrance.
And curl up with a great book! Ah, what book would that be you might ask?
One of the most helpful books I've ever had and I think every gardener should have. Actually I bought this book a few years ago when I was in class and never really looked at it. Let me tell you it is filled with many solutions to plant problems. So my dear friends, I may not be able to exercise my body right now but I guess I can exercise my mind!
