Good afternoon a lot has happened since my last post. I lost my desire to live as I saw nothing ahead for me, just my room. I had some good counseling and learned that I blamed myself when things went wrong and I felt guilty. I was able to talk about what happened when I was 3 years old. I feel a lot better today.
The breakfast tray had a cheese omelet, hash browns, and hot cereal, coffee that had milk in it. The cheese was Velveeta which I haven’t eaten since I was a child. Mother would not buy any other cheese. Another one was red kidney beans I can’t eat those beans today though I like most beans.
Garden News I have gone out twice and wheeled around the Porch garden. Some lovely red tulips, pansies, another daisy type, with white flowers were a few blue flowers blooming next to them. The yellow flower I don’t know. I have a stem of it. I tried to take a picture of it but I haven’t learned how the camera works.
Trees are starting to come alive with new leaves. A legume tree has long yellow bean shape seed pods that give a yellow blooming tree.
Yesterday I watched someone fill the seed feeders with fresh grain. I now wonder what birds they want to attract.
Bob was at dinner and his coffee intake was normal. Both of us had soup. The plate had scrambled eggs a mixture of pepper and onions, fried potatoes, and a half of a tomato. dessert was a cupcake. Back to my room to spend the night reading Mrs. Jeffries.
Betty, I am so glad that you are feeling better after talking to a counsellor. Getting out in the garden must feel lovely. I hope tomorrow is a good day.
Betty, I am sorry you went through such a hard time, but I am thankful you were able to talk it through with a counselor. When you and I were young, people didn’t have anyone to talk to about traumatic events. You were just supposed to keep everything inside. Of course, at three years old you probably were not able to express your thoughts and feelings like you can now. I know getting out to see the flowers must have been a big lift too. As you say in each blog post, “think positive!” I hope you have a good weekend.
I’m so glad you could talk to someone and are feeling better today 😀
I’m a firm believer in a good counseling session. Wishing you another joyful day tomorrow
So glad you spoke with someone and were able to feel better as a result. Getting out in the sun, seeing the flowers around and is always a pick me up too. I hope you will continue to share your blog and enjoy the time outside. I always love your photos
Actually most of the pictures were taken by husband.
I’m grateful for your share, Bettylouise. One day at a time, now.
