It has been a quiet week here...
I am having trouble with my shoulder (diagnosed with bursitis) so not doing too much if I can help it.
The doctor ordered a cortisone injection which I had on Tuesday. For the first day it was painful, and after that it seemed to settled down, only to come back sore again over the last couple of days grrr!
I am restricted with movement and it is very frustrating.
Just simple things like sleeping at night, tying up my hair, washing my hair, drying myself, putting clothing on and off, doing clothing up behind my back, hanging washing up on the line and taking off, reaching anything that is above my head.
Will go back to the doctor on Tuesday to see what he has to say. Hope they can ease my discomfort soon. Anti inflammatory medication didn't do anything to relieve the pain.
My exercise has come to a halt, but so far my weight is remaining roughly the same, so that is good. I still need to watch what I eat, basically no sugar and fat and will need to continue this healthy eating for the rest of my life. Junk food has become a thing of the past, haven't had any since January this year.
So far I have lost 7 kg (15.4 pounds) and I would like to lose just a little more yet. Will posts photos soon.
The garden is still going although we are not getting too much off of it now. It rained all day yesterday so the vegetables have had a much needed drink. Another cool day today with a bit of rain, and it is supposed to be cool all week, so where did the heat go? Not much around this year...
have been feeding the chooks with this and adding some to my protein drink for that extra lift.
is producing plenty of flowers but not too much zucchini. The ants dont seem to be doing their job at transferring pollen from the male to the female flower. I have been out there to do their job but still no zucchini. They get to a certain size then die off...
This is as big as they seem to get, then go yellow and gradually die back as you can see in the picture.
is still producing well. These plants are four years old and still going strong. I cut them back when they have finished for the year and they sit until next season.
has just had it's first fruit.
I am thinking these are cucumber plants. A while back I popped a couple of seeds in the ground that didn't shoot in a pot. They came up with the last lot of rain. We will have to wait and see what they are.
