It's the little things

Tuesday, December 13, 2016

For those of you who have been by my side with this latest knee issue, I'm happy to say that I woke up this morning with the pain nearly gone. I say nearly because I always have pain in that knee to some degree, but I am actually walking normal this morning.

And I had a hot shower this morning. Because our current hot water heater heats up too high - sometimes - we had to turn it to the very lowest setting possible. That means that you don't know if you're going to get water that's too hot, too cold, or just right. Today it was just right.

The best thing about today - I don't have to go outside until tonight. When Daisy and I were outside this morning it was -6 degrees, with 20 mile per hour winds making it feel like about -25. In the early fall we had unseasonably warmer weather which I absolutely loved - now we're having unseasonably colder weather (usually don't get below 0 temps until January). It looks like it will stay with us through the holidays but I'm okay with that - I am done with my gift shopping and I'll just need to do a little bit of grocery shopping for my Christmas Eve meal.

Such a little thing like less pain and a hot shower can really make the day bright!

    That is so great about your KNEE Kathy! You must of really jarred it and gave it a good sprain! I am thrilled it was nothing serious dear! And a hot shower too? Oh, life's little luxuries, are they the greatest? Life is good, I am in for the count cause we have more rain here, but temperatures are in the 50's, cold for me. But -25? You can shoot me! I can't imagine what that must feel like!!!!
    Hope your life's meeting was wonderful tonight and both of you got a lot out of it! Hugs, fredie

    I'm so glad to hear you pain was not bad today. Fingers crossed it stays that way for you.

    It's chilly here now and we're expecting some kind of storm this week, not sure how much yet. As long as there's enough snow for Bella to roll around in.

    Thank heavens for small favors! A hot shower and a knee that is manageable. Are you doing your exercises?

    DH had horrific pain in his knees (and why wouldn't he since our biz was concrete and he crawled around on his bare knees for years and years) I tried my best to get him to wear knee pads...nope...glutton for future punishment! But when he started doing strength exercises his knees cleared up. He also used magnets in an ace bandage which helped him. They work for some by bringing blood flow to the affected areas..you might try those?

    Hugs to you and enjoy your day emoticon

    Believe it or not, I am loving the colder temperatures in Colorado. I just never got used to the heat and humidity in Georgia - I'm a cold weather gal. But yikes - it sounds *really* cold where you are! Glad you can stay warm inside the rest of the Holiday!

    Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your knee again, but glad it's feeling better today. Maybe it's just being exacerbated by the cold? Stay warm and pain free!

    Happy Holidays!
