Rain, Rain, And More Rain

 

It  pretty much rained here all last week.  Sometimes it was actually raining so hard you couldn’t hear yourself think.  I had gone to the grocery one day, and the rain came down so hard, everyone was pulled over to the side of the road.  You literally could not see the car in front of you.

We did have a little break one afternoon so we took Rusty walking around the small lake/pond here at the park.  I wanted to see if I could find any wild flowers or unusual plants.  I did pretty good, and even scared up a Blue Heron.

OK, I will try to name some of these flowers, and if I am wrong, you all feel free to correct me.  Top left I think is spider wart, right back: some kind of fern, bottom left: water lily, middle bottom: wild flocks, and I know what the other one is, I fought it in my gardens at home, but the name escapes me at the moment.  Thistle????  How did I do?

I am fairly sure these are water lilies.  And they were my pick of the day.  I think they are perfect flowers, surrounded by the perfect colors to show them off.

This is a picture of the blue heron I scared off and some more pictures of the RV Park and cabins.  It was a nice walk and my second of the day in between rain storms.

Our plans have changed again.  We had planned to go to South Carolina from here, but I am still having a bit of trouble with my heart, and my daughter, Shannon thinks it would be best for me to go to a  Heart specialist.  She works for a group of them and has moved my appt. up from June, to April.  The only way I know to explain what is going on, is that it is beating out of rhythm.  They think it may be A-Fib, but won’t know till they can do some tests.  Quite frankly I am not used to feeling bad and am sick of it.  I will be glad to just finally find out what the heck is going on, and do something about it.

 

We will leave here on the 16th and make a couple of over-night stops on the way back to Indiana.  That should make for a less tiring trip all the way round.

I am so happy.  I have had my bird feeder out for 2 weeks, or since we got here, and today I finally had some red-winged black birds stop and feed.  They are the only ones I have seen on it, but hope there will be more.  I know there is plenty for the birds to eat this time of year, but I do love to watch them.

Going to make this a short post.  Later… :)

Prayers for you on the heart issue. Good thing to get checked out!

Alan and Marilyn McMillan said...

It's scary when your heart acts up. I was recently diagnosed with a-fib & started on meds. When I have an "episode," it takes a lot out of me -- I end up with a headache & feeling very tired. Sorry you have to cut your trip short, but it's important to get it checked out. Take care & safe travels.

Hope all goes well and your heart stays as wonderful as it has been so far.

Hope you get good news from the heart people, I always told my wife I didn't have a heart so maybe I would avoid those problems people have, so far, so good. Be safe out there, Sam & Donna....

I think you are wise to get the heart checked out first - then back to traveling.

Truly love the colors in your waterlily photos. And I think the Flocks are not sheep but actually phlox. Botanists are strange. A bit like soil scientists.

My husband had a terrible time with a-fib for many years. Many people are not symptomatic, but he is and always knew s soon as he went in it...being a paramedic as well, he knew what was going on! It's not something to be taken lightly, and please get to a doctor as soon as possible. Blood clots are a serious side effect of going in and out of a-fib. Please send me an email if you would like to chat with him about it...he's quite experienced! His mom aslo has it but is controlled by meds, he had surgery to correct the problem, and "knock on wood"he's been fine for 2 years now.

take care of yourself!

I'm sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. Your heart beating out of rhythmn can certainly explain why you are feeling so tired. I'm glad you are going to have it checked out soon. Karen is right about the concern of blood clots.

Safe Travels! Your picture of the water lillies is so nice.

Rick and Paulette said...

Please take care of yourself and get that heart checked out. Lots of fixes available for that kind of problem now.

Take care of yourself! You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Especially liked the flower pics & the water lilies were great. A heart out of rhythm doesn't sound like a good thing but with all of today's medical advances there should be no problem in getting you back up to par again. I think the key is not to wait to long with that kind of stuff. These old motors of ours are definately getting a few miles on them & I think proper maintenance is key........
