Fall is in full swing here in my neck of the woods and I fear it will be over quickly. Our temps have taken a drastic drop this week and we are getting very little sunlight. I am having a hard time getting my clothes to dry on the line. I may have to admit defeat and put them in the dryer to remove the remaining dampness.
This has not been the prettiest fall for Michigan, I think the leaves aren’t as vibrant when rainfall is less than average. We will be getting rain every day for the rest of this week, which will bring a lot of the leaves to the ground and before we know it there will be bare branches covered in snow. Michigan is predicted to have a harsh winter this year. My family will love that, we all downhill ski and snowmobile.
I have had a rough two weeks, I fell down the stairs last week and two days later fell off a chair while vacuuming out the high window sills. Apparently you can’t put the canister vac, that’s on wheels, up on the chair and stand on it. Wow, did I take a crash and have several bruises to show for it. I thought for sure my arm was broke and it may be but I am toughing it out. To make matters worse I fell exactly one week later, tripped in the dark, and that same arm that is black and blue from wrist to armpit took another blow on the corner of the dresser. My whole body hurts from head to toe and I look like I took a serious flogging.
And to top it all off my 94 year old grandmother has been in the hospital from a stoke. She had 3 strokes while in their care and so far they have done nothing for her. I think at her age it is a gamble to do the surgery to unclog the artery that is blocked in her neck. She is the backbone of my fathers side of the family and it is so tough to see her in this condition. Her mind is perfect, even the doctors comment on how lively and strong she is. I was with her 2 days before all this happened and she was getting ready to head to the barn to feed the horses. I am praying that a good woman can’t be kept down for long. I sure hope my week sees some improvement soon, Im not sure how much more I can take.
