To say "Oweey" is an understatement... lol!
I spent the afternoon pruning all the roses, which has left me with achy hands not to mention some sore butt squat muscles! lol!

Going to reward myself with a mani-pedi today... and a glass of wine tonight..

How do you reward yourself for a vigorous day of gardening?

Grace, I wouldn't describe my day of gardening as vigorous because I am a container gardener. I no longer can bend over because I get dizzy so all my containers are either on plant stands or cement blocks. The few flowers I have in the ground I hire someone to look after. Back to your question on how I treat myself after gardening I sit on my side porch with a glass of Merlot and am thankful for the gardening I can still do. It's not always how much you garden but that you do garden.

Dianna, don’t laugh, while at the Salon, I enjoyed sitting in the message chair as my tootsie got pampered…

Grace- I can sympathize! I have been putting wool and compost under the raspberries. They sure don’t like to be messed with! I have never gone and gotten a mani-pedi before, but I do love to get massages done!

Sara- do you have the condition abbreviated POTS? I have a little bit of it where if I move too quickly from sitting or laying down I can get dizzy or pass out. For me it’s all part of the ehlers-danlos syndrome that I learned I have about 15 years ago

Alee, I have MS which causes virago from time to time, and I also have low blood pressure. I figure either one or both could cause me being dizzy when I bend over, or it could be just the fact I'm 82 and everything seems to be a little off these days.

Sara- sorry to hear about your MS! I have a friend that has it! I am so glad you have a way to garden that doesn’t make you bend over as much!

Grace, I reward myself with a nap lol! I don't get out much with all my littles, but I will take full advantage of those massages and mani pedis when they grow up!

Grace, I am glad you had weather that was good for gardening ! I know that feels good to see ole man Winter's grip weakening a bit. I hope your recovery plan was just what you needed!

I am with Krista! A time to relax with a good book which almost always results in a nap!

When asked “How are you?”, I reply, “Better than good!”
