Flu Shot Time

I went in for my yearly primary care checkup.  I also needed this year’s flu shot and the 2nd part of the pneumonia shot I had forgotten to get.

Normally the pneumonia shot is given at age 65 but when you have crappy lungs they give it to you early because no one wants you getting pneumonia.

I love primary care because I ask a ton of questions and always get my answers. I love that our Drs Office have a message portal and if anything comes up you can send a message and get an answer that same day.

The new medication 1st.pill gave me a mouth full of pencil eraser size ulcers all under my tongue on the sides and underneath and in my throat. Needless to say, that is NOT the pill for me. I am on day two of trying to get rid of these mouth ulcers. Gargling with salt water and swishing some maalox.

It is so hard sometimes because my body hates medication and sometimes it has the rare side effects that most people never get.

Make sure you all get your flu shot so the flu does not spread to 1000’s of people.

Does anyone else have extreme reactions to medications?

1 – cabbage cut into chunks

1  medium sized onion

Olive Oil a couple of tablespoons

Sautee the above

Two cans of diced tomatoes

A couple of dashes of red pepper depending on how hot you like things.

Carrots 5 large ones slice thin or a package of frozen ones that are sliced.

Celery 3 – 4  good stalks chopped up.

Garlic I used a tablespoon of minced garlic

2 tablespoons of Chicken Bouillion I like the “Better than Bouillon” one.

Daisy turns 6 years old

On April 22, 2013, the most beautiful boxer was born.

Our Daisy girl is six years old and she still acts like a puppy on most days.

I never knew a dog could have so much personality.

She talks to us and can get quite sassy sometimes.

She loves to sleep at the foot of our bed covered up everywhere but her head. That does not mean that if she gets cold in the night she will not get between us lol.

When I am gone somewhere and get back home she expects something special & now she has taught Zoee this trick. I keep a bag of special treats for those occasions. They get dog biscuits on a daily basis so those do not count lol.

Daisy has brought so much joy to our lives I have no idea what we would have done without her. I am glad she and Zoee have each other because she’s a good sister mama & Zoee is a great companion for her.

I will try and get some more pics this week she was not being very cooperative yesterday.

This picture is her waiting for Zoee to come outside and join her. That anticipation look.

Happy Birthday, Daisy Girl! We Love you.

Portrait lenses

I love my portrait lenses but one of my favorites is my Canon 85mm 1.8.

This particular portrait lens allows you to do close-ups with details such as in this picture with Miss Daisy resting.

This lens can isolate the subject while allowing a shallow depth of field. Basically allowing the background to be creamy and out of focus.

If you love photography and do not have a portrait lens do your self a favor and get you one.

The cat and dog match

Daisy has shared Zoee with Mr. Bird who does not seem to mind the clumsy feet of a boxer puppy.

They stayed like this for at least one hour then Bird got up and laid on top of Zoee.

Its wonderful everyone is getting along so well.

The little moments like this that I get to capture with my camera really make my day.

90 Years old

Today is my Mother in Law’s 90th. birthday.

Last weekend we had a big birthday party outdoors at her house there were over 100 people there.

She is very active and she says that it is to keep her mind strong.

My Mother in law is one of those people who does not bad mouth others. I respect this woman so so much for that.

She is one of the strongest Christians I know. She spends 5 days of 7 days at the church making rosaries, quilts for the bazaar and they do other odds and ends.

If that is not enough she makes quilts, lap quilts etc for all her family. She loves reading and reads a book on most days.

She has 4 siblings 3 brothers and 1 sister and with counting her 3 are in their 90’s and 2 are in their late 80’s. It is such a blessing to be able to celebrate her 90th birthday with all of them.

Happy Birthday to her today and we love her very much.
