Thanks for asking Elaine. The new meds will take about 3 months to settle in. Unfortunately this time with the hock injections he did not clear the eye all that well, unlike last time. I suspect it is because he has now established chronic fibrosis in the eye and it is what it is from now on.

The riding is very frustrating at the moment and most of my lessons I get lectured on what I should not be doing. The dumb thing is that 2 years ago I could not turn him right, well I worked on that and got through it...now I cannot turn left ...sigh I will work through this but it is frustrating the heck out of me.

Going to be a bit short this morning, like an idiot I lost my balance this morning and toppled over on the side porch, thank goodness the rail was there but it took a rather nice chunk out of my right hand, kinda hurts..haha
Typing not going so well with just the left..haha and I just picked up a brush again, I really need to pay more attention I think, must have been still half asleep. Am fine but as a lefty reeeeeally slow...

Re: The Greenie's Room March 2012

Oh my, Agnes, you sound full of energy this morning. Enjoy the sun while you have it and keep your neighbor Ray in line. He is one of the good guys (just likes to act bad)

Elaine, how are you today? No more mishaps I hope. Raymo should have been there to catch you.

Garden Gates sounds like fun painting. I think they are intriguing, even painted one once. Maybe I will venture into the studio and do some more.

One would think the horsie isn't spoiled in any way....sad to say, he truly is. He knows it too and will beg for carrots or mints if he sees you coming out of the tack room with something in your hands.

The vet is coming to check the eye today. I noticed yesterday he had what looked like a little bump on it. I don't remember seeing it before. His eye ball surface is a little uneven since the injury but this seems to be new. His eye did not appear painful so I don't think it is too much to worry about but he did have an eye abscess about a year ago and as the inflammation from the injury has not completely gone away for 2.5 years, we are nervous about it.

Re: The Greenie's Room March 2012

Ahhh - poor Maddie - and I do hope that's not more eye problems in the offing - nasty.

Katherine - we could do with some rain here - parts of the country in drought status. Garden is very dry and I might have to water it. We are due for much colder weather this week tho' - the temp's already dropping rapidly. Kept thinking summer was here already!
Hope the golf tourny is going well - bet you're tired!

Agnes has me exhausted with all her chatter and I'm 'seeing' her waltzing down the street in sundress and flip-flops, batting eyelashes at the neighbours (to get them to her grass, of course!!!!) and then going on a spending spree! Phew!!!

I wonder why Kay posted early - probably thinking March had only 28 days like Feb!?
I've put the Gallery up in March's PP - go take a looksee

Hello all missing friends here - talk to you later eh?

TTFN.

Re: The Greenie's Room March 2012

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for the hugs, been using them up too..hahaha Hand is little stiff, nicely scabbing over 'just' where you need to flex your wrist... but fine, as for the rest of me...ugh. Seems there is this rather nasty flu? virus? thing circling and of course my daughter and the kids got it then oh so nicely passed it on to me..haha It's the craziest thing I've ever seen, comes and goes, severe back pain, stomach upset, total joint pain and fever and you can't eat or it reacts unpleasantly. I was in bed all day yesterday and the day before yesterday fairly okay. Could be why I was a tad off in the balance department that morning feeding the kitties. So far good this morning, only a bit of discomfort, I'm told it should only last four days, fingers crossed I haven't felt this bad since the lyme disease thing. Haven't really eaten in three days and I can testify that now I am tempted to eat everything I can think of...LOL
Always something I guess, think they call it life..

Carol poor Maddie is having his moments with that as well, hopefully that little bump you spotted isn't anything major and can be tended to swiftly.
They all get used to be spoiled I think, I would go out to Vel with my hands behind my back and she'd just nudge and push looking for something, if nothing then she'd snort hahaha obviously her way of saying 'Not fair'.
Give the boy a pat for me and a carrot if it's okay with you.

Hi Meryl, you're as quiet as can be girl, hope you're just painting and everything is okay!

Katherine it's raining here this morning, which I'm thinking is fine, they were reporting for snow... Don't over due there girlfriend you are a busy little bee..haha

Patti Raymo catch me..LOL that would be a sight I'd be over the railing me thinks.

Agnes you are like spring, all ready to go, bloom where you're planted and dressed for the occasion..you go girl Our little sassy sister...I'm hoping it's catchy I could use some bounce in my step..haha

Maureen hope you had fun getting away a bit, did you get anything interesting while shopping, at least a little treasure I hope.
I thought maybe Kay thought there were only 30 days in March and figuring some are a day ahead she posted.

Well some good news for me, Larry and the guys seem to be back to work, fingers crossed it continues. Our Anniversary is tomorrow, yup on April Fool's Day, really hoping everything settles down with me so we can perhaps go out to dinner.

Something else kind of nice, my alma Mater, Mount St. Mary's has closed and the huge building was bought by their college. I was contacted to see if I would be willing to create a piece of art to hang in the old building representing the Class of 62, I thought that was rather nice of them to remember me. Attending a meeting to get more detail in what they are looking for.

Well I am going to get myself some breakfast.. I will catch you all later..
Oh almost forgot...Tracy hi sweetie!! We'll get our day in the sun..eventually
see you next time you're in Starbucks..haha

Okay then,
Hugs all round,
Elaine

Re: The Greenie's Room March 2012

Elaine, so sorry for your illness and hoping you are much better today. Yes, it could have caused you to lose your balance. Big hug for you.

Agnes you should have gone to breakfast with us this morning. Such a lovely sunrise but no camera and we were sitting in the restaurant looking out through the window blinds. I know if you were with us you would have jumped up and ran out to take a picture. And then you could have written something poetic about the purple, pinks and yellow. The scene from inside would have been ruined by all the people and blinds. Oh well, there will be another one.

Maybe Kay was excited and "just had to post". It's a good choice and sounds like fun. Wish we were over in St. Augustine or one of the other old towns where they have interesting gates and doorways.

Re: The Greenie's Room March 2012

Hi Flower girls and gals.

Sorry about Maddie Carol,hope she get well soon.
Today the sky is beautifully,blue with scattered clouds,the sun plays hide and seek on its silvery linings makin me sing~~~~~~where (you are the) is the sunshine...the bloody sunshine,(my only sunshine )~~~cut a little bit of grass outside,using scissors ..no I never drive a lawnmower before,might do it soon...need to reeve it up..
Elaine ,am sure your batch will be proud to have an Elainistic hanging on the wall.
Sorry to hear you are not well,hugs from me and get well soon.
Happy Anniversary to you!
Patti,how you know I always take pic with everyone and everything ?traded my big cam tosmall one as big ones frightening people ,and makes me look so tourist .
Now,am not familiar with planting on spring..or summer,just reallize that there are certain plants on different times..Back in philippines we plant all yr round.
Hi Kath,yeah I think am so high,funny how the sun changes around here,colors of clothes,gardens,and parks..its like a gloomy sepia picture turns into colored.

Re: The Greenie's Room March 2012

Hi All, sorry I have been absent, and yes Noods all is ok, just flat out at the moment. So sorry to hear you took a spill, and really glad you never hurt yourself more.. We dont bounce as well as we use to. Hugs hon.

Carol, really sorry to hear Maddy is still battling, I really hope that in the end all this will correct itself and hell be back prancing around. I really feel for you, not only the expense but the worry and concern you are constantly living with..

Im sorry I cant post more, huggs to you all and heres hoping all are well, fit and happy. Im hosting the Landscape challenge this month and only came on to set the sticky.. then must be off to town to pick up a canvas block for a painting I have been asked to do for a friend.

Oh on a last note am returning to work on the 10th April, cant come soon enough for me. SIL came yesterday and God love her, went out and bought me meat to eat. Really grateful but also feel like a charity case.
I dont know, was born backwards and seem to do everything backwards.... Most people start out building a house and have a mortgage. Me.... I build a house free and clear.. and every decade end up with a bigger and bigger mortgage... Everything is going up so much for everyone, everywhere... for me I can see Im going to be forced to sell out in the end.. Who ever said "Life wasnt meant to be easy" should have been shot. At 60 I cant be doing with this crap.

Luv to you all, me mates
