I picked up the camera today. My shoulder actually hurt more than yesterday and it was obvious that I needed to shoot. I realized as I spent all day shooting, then processing photographs, that the problem isn’t the camera and its weight. It’s these all day workouts on the computer.
I’m not sure what I can do about it because when you shoot, you are going to process … and if you take a lot of pictures — and Garry took quite a few today too — you are going to process a lot.
If anyone has an answer for how to do this without all the crippling side effects, let me know. My wrists, shoulder, neck, and back will thank you.
There are a lot of buds waiting to open soon, too. So there will be more!
I was surprised when I realized the cactus was going to bloom again. It only stopped blooming a month ago, but apparently, this wasn’t so much a new bloom as the end of the intermission following the first blooming.
I’m sorry I didn’t write anything more today. It was another doctor day followed by a grocery shopping day. I haven’t been out much, so I met all the people I haven’t seen in a while — quite a while — and we all had to talk and then a few more people showed up, so we needed more. Turns out we were blocking the aisle, so we had to break up the party.
It got downright riotous in the old grocery store this afternoon.
When I came home, my lift chair was refusing to work and I realized I’m going to have to get the manufacturer to send someone and have it set up properly. Owen did the best he could with it, but it needs the pros.
I was also thrilled to see that my blood pressure was down by 20 points up and down today, though I think it’s because the nurse in my PCP’s office knows how to take a manual blood pressure measurement.
All of a sudden, in just two days, the last bud bloomed, the other flower closed up and I think by the end of the week, both plants will go into retirement for a few months.
On a more positive note, I have a new shoot coming in from my orchids. No buds yet. Just the tall, naked shoot. It will be weeks before it turns into buds and more weeks until it flowers. It had two shoots, but one withered. The other looks healthy.
