NONNIE'S WORDLE #199: My Lenten Promise

Mardi Gras- the last day of revelry before the beginning of Lent- on Ash Wednesday. I took my cue to indulge myself one last time before Lent’s onset. Then desiring to empty myself of so many worldly pleasures and to spark my memory of past years Lenten promises,  I cracked open my documents to seek those intentions.  What can I do to be a more saintly child of God?  My mind wrestled between other years’ vows and choosing a new one. So I decided to give up playing my computer games.  The very first day- perhaps science could explain my lapse, I clicked on the Solitaire icon.  Then just as quickly, my Guardian Angel threw virtual pebbles at my head to stop playing almost before I started.

Organic and Fresh Salad

The beans seen above and layered on my salad below are grown by my granddaughter Candice.  The name of the beans is Tanya's Pink Pods. All veggies on her Earth Candy Acres farm are organically grown. The beans are delicious and tender, making a grand addition to my salad. Topping the veggies are dried cranberries, adding a bit of sweetness.

Pondering about My Blog

I've been through quite a bit these past months that I haven't posted. 
First, packing and moving and then unpacking
. The first step of unpacking was my taking down boxes that were five and six boxes high. 
About two weeks after I’d moved and was in the midst of unpacking, I developed horrendous pain in my ribs. I slathered on my gel I use to alleviate Fibromyalgia pain. Realizing that even that was not helping. Trying to make a long story short- Asked for pain pillsNo help; asked for another kindDoctor wanted to see meWent in- he didn’t understand why I was still in painSent me to get x-raysDiagnosis: compressed fracture in my 9th vertebraCause: osteporosisNow on meds for that I’ve discovered that anytime I overdo, pain comes back, not quite full-blown, but enough that I must stop doing whatever I’m doing. That includes sitting at my computer writing. I wanted to bring my friends up-to-date; I’m pondering whether I should stop blogging altogether or do it only occasionally. Thank…
