Just when I thought we were finished in the Kitchen!!!!!
last year a blog friend sent me some Rosella plant seeds and I also got a Rosella plant for Christmas.Bob realised that the flowers were ready for harvesting,so it was bring them in and a new experiment started for us to make Rosella Jam and Rosella cordial.It was easy and most enjoyable and the best part is that the jam and cordial are delishious! In a little over 1 hour we were all organised and well on the way to making our new recipes.
I want to mention my doctors visit as I am hoping you all did not think I was terminal or anything,I was expecting to be getting ready to have the liquid radiation treatment only to find to the doctors disappointment and to mine that I have now developed the eye disease that goes with my Graves disease,he was positive that I would not develop this but it seems radiation cannot be given when the eyes develop this problem.I am not allowed any sunlight or wind in my eyes,and it is very uncomfortable let alone annoying, I now have wrap around sunglasses that fit over my others,we are praying that the medication and my care will help this stop and that by July we may have a chance to have the radiation as I cannot get well without it.
There is no need to comment I have now gotten used to the idea and know what I have to do...you know God has been so good to me..he has taken a child that had a hard childhood and matched me up with someone who also had a hard time so we know the value of family and constancy.I am with someone that puts up with me through thick and thin and although Bob is a non believer he also knows how important my love of God is to me,when we were young he used to mock me a little and decided he liked the fact that when things are tough I pray on his behalf lol.
I know I will beat this thing that makes me feel so out of sorts,fatigued and yukky..but I also know how lucky I am,I do not have cancer, I do have the use of all of my body,no missing limbs,still got a brain that functions..so I am fine and God is good,he has told me to slow down,I did not,so he took it into his own hands and now I have had to slow down and smell the roses.....now if Bob would just stop picking things in the garden I could have a real rest lol...."what's that Bob? the beetroot is ready for bottling?...have you been told where to go lately...lol... we will do it next weekend."
Honestly though thank you all for caring,I won't be getting a lot of craft done but I will try to do a bit each day and when the eyes get too sore just finish and sit awhile.Being blessed with so many lovely followes..what more could a girl want..bless you all.
