Here is this week's thread. I finally broke down and bought some hand weights. They are 3 pounds each. I know that sounds wimpy, but that is where I am going to start.

Planted some peas in the garden today. But that did not require much effort except for deep knee bends.

I am soooo glad that winter is over!!

Best,
Karen

Everyone must be sleeping in today! Wish I was!

Miss Pris and I went to the mail. I am going to start my arm weights later this morning. Need to get the house presentable before company comes.

Let's have a good week!

Best,
Karen

Hi All! Worked outside over the weekend. Otherwise than that, it was a bit of a lazy weekend.

I haven't been taking my vitamins like I should, so I need to do better at that, 'cause I've been having a case of the sleepies. Lack of energy.

The more I move, the more energy I have. But feeling sleepy means I don't want to move. Catch 22.

Hi, Lou! I wish I was like that: the more I move, the more energy I have. I am just the opposite! Good for you! Working outside is not exactly being a couch potato!

Hi there!

Sorry. I have been M.I.A. This IV Rifampin knocked me down something silly.

I thought I starting to get in some walking and then BAM.

So I'm picking myself up and brushing off. Hoping to get back up and walking later today but still hooked up to IV. Walking with a pole for 6 to 9 hours a day is tough. hehehehe.

I really just wanted to stop in and say I'm still here with all of you in spirit.

Good to hear from you, Cathy! Kudos to you that you are able to handle the Rifampin at all! I hope you get great gains from it!

Thanks for stopping in and giving us an update.

Warm here today. Very confusing to me. It seems like it was just yesterday when I was out in my down jacket wearing gloves for our morning outing.

But, today, even a cotton cover was too much.

Haven't been on my feet yet today, but hoping to walk in the woods this afternoon/evening.

Good to hear from you Karen, Lou and Cathy.

OMG!!! One mile on Sunday!!! First time in many, many moons I have been able to walk. I am really hoping it's the start of something good.

Unfortunately I think it is just because I am off the IV Rocephin right now due to line issues, which I dont' want to be, and that some of my fatigue is lifitng due to that.

Kudos, Tracy! One mile, wow. Lots of people are not able to feel the improvements of treatment until they stop the antibiotics. I am sorry that you are having PICC troubles.

But glad for you that you are able to get the encouragement that you are improving! Especially fatigue, which is sometimes the last symptom to clear.

Best,
Karen

Tracy...big smile on my face...that is so cool.

Tutu..wow...are your sure you did not have roller skates on?? Speedy!

Monday evening:

Took neighbor with me to Waterwheel area. I have trouble focusing so she sat in the back seat and was quiet which helped.

But, the talking even though it was limited was too much for me while on the trail. Brain and body still can't do the multi tasking thing.

Over did it. But, it was a good outing.

Saw an egret fly up the stream...cool..

Also heard some kind of bird on the other side of a boulder near the creek.

Rosie was there earlier and was doing what I call the help bark.

Didn't have what it took to climb over the rocks to see what was going on...guessing it was a nest??

A nest that Rosie could not get to and that is why the help bark.

 -

the egret or heron we saw fly over also was calling out...first time I have heard them.

Tues am: able to spend 5 or 10 min in kitchen trying to clean up.

Boy do beans stink when they are allowed to sit for a while.

The body was in a lot of pain while trying to move about to clean up. Got to be too much so had to stop.

But, glad I was able to do a bit. Hoping to go back and do a bit more today.

Hang in there, Aklnwlf! When you can, a walk would probably be good for the body and the emotions.

KAM, lupine is one of my favorite flowers! But its the east coast one. Here is a pic of what it looks like in my neck of the woods:
http://photography.nationalgeographic.com/photography/enlarge/halifax-lupine-field_pod_image.html

Miss Pris and I did not walk today. It was pouring out! I don't mind walking in the rain. But when it is coming down sideways, I don't play.

Best,
Karne

Wow. It is much taller in your neck of the woods.

Hurray...Glad you and Rocky were able to get out AKW

Karen...I agree...the sideways rain is a no play day. HA!

I took Rosie to the dog park this am. I was able to slouch in a chair for just about an hour which is very unusual for me.

I did have trouble walking mostly due to stiffness and soreness...not do to the brain being so drained it was not able to talk to the legs.

And I was able to sit with the people this time and take in conversations...thankful they kept them short and talked about what was happening in the moment for teh most part.

Rosie was a happy camper. She ran from me to the gate each time a dog(s) arrived to greet them.

She also went around from person to person to be petted.

The morning group is good and keeps an eye on their dogs.

It is the same dogs and people so we know what to expect. And the conversation is usually positive.

It is the only time most of us will go to the dog park.

I stayed longer than usual as I was not up to walking in the woods with her and she doesn't really get the exercise she needs at the dog park.

No flat out running like she does off leash in the woods. She is going all the time when we are on the trail.

KAM, you are so good to be able to post that! Yes, when I first saw lupine in the west, I laughed. It took me a while to appreciate it's beauty, short that it is...

So glad you were able to spend so much time at the dog park and participate in conversation! Yea! There was a time when that would have done you in, in just minutes.

Miss Pris and I went to the mail. But no mail. That is unusual. I have the hand weights but still haven't used them! I guess good intentions really don't count.

Best,
Karen

Don't feel wimpy, Lymetoo. That was the weight I wanted! Can't find one pounders up here in the north. My shoulders are bad too. It is where I carry a lot of my pain. 28 laps! You go girl!

Karen

Thursday am:

Good outing. 1 hr. Not all outdoors. Partly driving in car and then stopping at two 7-11 type of stores looking for a can of Creme of Mushroom soup for teh crock pot today.

But, I walked in and walked out in after walking a bit in the forest.

Walked up the trail that is an incline and has a boulder for me to sit on in the sun.

IN the past, I would be so exhausted when walking up that short incline..huffing and puffing..

and then I would lie on the rock to recoup.

But, this am I was able to hold myself upright and sit. I was slouching but then reminded myself to sit upright for a bit.

It was in the warm sun. Took off my cotton beach jacket. Had a short sleeve top on and jeans.

Spring has sprung.

It was 7:30 in the morning. Missed the sun in my eyes on the drive there this am due to the sun all ready being higher in the sky.

Before long 7:30 am is going to be too hot to be out and I will need to make sure I get out there as the daylight is just beginning to show up in the sky.

The lupine brought me much joy this am. Two different trails had it on both sides. One going out and a different trail coming back.

Rosie saw something when we first started out but I could not see what she saw. It was a different kind of bark she was doing too.

Not sure what that bark meant.

Wed night able to do a bit more cleaning up in the kitchen.Things are looking better in there.

Hoping to be able to finish up today. Very unusual to have the kitchen counters clean and cleared off like it use to be before I got sick.

It is more difficult for me to do the multi movement in the kitchen for 10 min than it is the walk in the woods.

I think I have said this before.

Couldn't recall what CA Lupine looked like so did a search.

This is in Gorman CA. I do recall passing these hills many a time and enjoying the beauty.

I love lupines, as our Texas Bluebonnets are a type of lupine. Got any pics of those??

"Ellen" has them on her show. Look at the back drop behind her. It's definitely from Texas.

Do you think Pablo Picasso had lyme?? The Double Vision. HA!

Seriously...wanted to see a close up of Texas Bluebonnets and found this:

I learned it is the state flower. And it is from the lupine family

Yes, Lymetoo. That is the type of Lupine I saw in the Phoenix area, on the east side of the valley. Pretty, but it is so small!!

KAM, that California lupine is gorgeous! I love that blue color! Here in Maine we get the purple and pink. I just found out at my gardener's course this winter that they are not native plants. Forget where they originated from, but not native Maine plants. I was surprised, as they are everywhere!

Miss Pris and I went to the mail. I looked at my hand weights. And considered picking them up. Does that count?! =)

Friday am: Rosie and I went out to the Shoofly Ruins.

I woke up not wanting to get out of bed this am. But, since Rosie needed to toilet I forced got up.

Took a couple of excedrin and had a frap and headed for Shoofly.

I was planning on just sitting in a camp chair while Rosie explored and ran off leash.

But, once I got there I was doing better and able to walk around a bit.

I was on my feet for 15 min. But, it was a casual stroll, stopping to read the plagues along the way.

I stopped in one site that still had the bottom part of the remains of the housing.

Told them honey I'm home. What's for supper. They said Rabbit stew again.

Oh Well...at least those rabbits are plentiful.

ON the plaque it said that they ate aguave (wonder what they did with that), rabbit, bear and can't recall what else in the spring.

They traded pottery, jewelry, etc with the Mountain tribes and the Desert Tribes.

Building the homes took bringing in rocks from out of the area, bringing in clay in baskets, bringing in water in clay pots.

Some of the huts were built from the red rock and some were built from the black basalt. I haven't seen any basalt in my travels so not sure where they got that.

They also ate not Elk but antelope. Elk was not mentioned.

I like just being out there. We had the place to ourselves this am. The rabbits were active so Rosie had fun running about tracking their scent.

But, she always kept me in sight so that is good.

She was so active the whole time. It was fun to see.

Pretended I was shopping for a house as I was still doing prettty good after the outing.

Cruised the 2 bedroom homes built in 2003. Found one I liked for sell that had the morning sun shining no it and it backed up to the national Forest.

It was $300,000. Guess I should get two at that price. HA!

Stopped at a yard sale. There were so many signs this am for yard sales in the 10 min drive to the village that I lost count.

The one I stopped at had a colemen fiberglass canoe with life jackets and some other things for $200.00.

I wondered if I could put it on the top of my car.

Then thought about how difficult it would be just for me to lift it even with help and knew i was not ready for the canoe thing yet even if I had the funds to purchase one.

That wore me out. I needed to head home. That short burst of energy was gone.

Brain was going. Found myself on the main highway instead of the back road as I usually go on.

So turned to the back road as soon as I could.

Resting now and then will get up to have some breakfast and take meds and supplements.

ARms are sore. CAn't figure out what I did that included my arms this am.

Not sure if I posted this before or not...

Shoofly Village Archaeological Ruins offers visitors a self-guided tour back into another era.

At one time, the Rim Country was home to probably 1,000 different sites, the very heart of the prehistoric cultures in the Southwest.

The people who lived in the Rim country -- known variously as Mogollons, Ancient Ones or Bunheads -- were literally surrounded by the Sinagua to the north, the Anasazi to the northeast, the Mogollon to the southeast, the Salado to the south, and the Hohokam to the southwest.


The Shoofly Indian Ruins were believed to have been occupied
between A.D. 1000-1250.

At an elevation of 5,240 feet, Shoofly Village once had a total of 79 structures of which the rock outlines, once the base of the walls, are still visible.

At the center of this site is where a larger structure once existed, believed to have been a building with 26 rooms averaging 37.4 square meters each, and part of this structure was perhaps two stories high.

In clusters around the core area were 39 smaller structures and 14 more were scattered about the general area and at least one of these structures had a curved wall.

The entire compound of approximately 3.75 acres (1.5 hectares) is enclosed by a small rock fence.

Located atop the northern edge of Houston Mesa, the immediate area is comprised of grassland and sparsely populated with Juniper and Chaparral.

The average annual rainfall for the area is about 20 inches.


This site was first recorded in 1930 by archaeologist John Hughes but full scale excavations did not occur until 1984.

These excavations were conducted by Dr. Charles Redman from Arizona State University, as a field school program, over a four year period. More excavations are being considered.

The people who once occupied the Shoofly Village appeared to have been similar to those who once occupied the Flagstaff, Arizona area and also the Sinaqua from the Upper Verde Valley but with notable differences.

It is believed the Shoofly residents possibly had, or once had, Hohokam ties. As both farmers and hunters, they grew corn, beans, squash, possibly cotton and successfully hunted deer, elk, rabbits, rodents, birds, and migratory fowl (ducks and geese).

It is also believed they may have raised turkeys (wild turkeys are indigenous to the area). Their brown clay pottery were mostly jar-shaped vessels but were not decorated with designs.

The decorated pottery found was believed to have come from the Little Colorado and Flagstaff areas.

The arrowheads located were very small, less than an inch long (likely arrowhead hunters over the years found the bigger ones).

KGG....Yes I would count looking at the hand weights.

It is a small step towards getting in the habit of using them now and then. [Smile]

Kam, You are too funny! A Picasso Bluebonnet!

Good to see everyone. Another busy week.

Some gardening, walking and leg exercises. Not a bad week overall.

Supposed to be hot as Hades here this weekend. Everyone seems so excited about the warm weather. Heat just makes me feel wilted.

But I'll be outside working. I love playing in the dirt. The plan is to get outside earlier, rather than later.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Hey All,

Loved all the lupines. Had a friend in Alaska that grew some in her flower beds but I can't recall the color.

Will try to get some yard work done either today or tomorrow so will post later if it's today.

Also have to repair the ceiling in the bathroom.

Work, work, work!!!

[hi]

Hi, Aklnwlf! Yes, that is work! I hate working over my head. So you have my sympathies about the bathroom ceiling!

It was 80 degrees today!!! I haven't seen that since probably September. It was a pure delight. DH and I went kayaking for 30 minutes in our tandem one. I did not paddle the entire time but most of it.

By the time we got home, I wished that I had done more than look at my hand weights! HA! As soon as I can lift my arms again, I will start them.

Best,
Karen

I guess working our arms is the next step. I finally figured out why mine hurt after having a good outing the other morning.

I had been driving like a "normal" person. I usually slouch in the drivers seat and use my legs to support my arms and have my hands on the bottom of the steering wheel.

I figured it out when I got in the car that evening and tried to drive "normally" again. Ouch.

Sun am: good hr and a half outing. 20 min on my feet but it was at the indian ruins so most of it was strolling.

I did stop and have a frap with my Shoofly neighbors at a different home this time.

The residence were very quiet. They hadn't seen glass before or a dog like Rosie or hiking boots or socks or pants and shirt like I had on.

And they were really fascinated with my sun glasses.


Wondered what it was like during that time of the day when it was an active place.

Drove through a neighborhood in the area. Saw llamas...boy were they wooly, shetland ponies, horses.

Stopped at one place that was for sale. $185,000 and half of an acre. They had fruit trees, a garden, paddock with horses.

The add did give the sq footage or how many bedrooms.

I liked the place. Not sure how the new metal green roof would be like when it rains.

It is less than 10 miles out of town. Big difference in prices in that area.

Junipers. NO pine trees there.

Just day dreaming. I could also have chickens there too for fresh eggs.

Took a couple of excedrin before I left. It helped but the brain does feel swollen still a bit this am and the vision is a problem.

need to rest my eyes.

Saw more pieces of pottery at the indian ruins sight. Bigger pieces this time.

Also saw some of the basalt rocks that they talked about.

Before I had only seen the red rock that they used to build the homes.

And I think I just missed an Elk. Need to get out there earlier. Scat and tracks looked fresh.
