Drifting along

Night sweats, nightmares, day sweats, not enough sleep, I feel as though I'm coming apart here. I have these dreadful feelings every time I have to leave the house for any reason but I make myself go out and sit beneath the trees at least once a day to tease fate. When I do have to go anywhere I make the trip as fast as I can except for the trip to Jerri's to picnic with the chicklets last week. I felt calm there. I've decided menopause is an evil bitch and she's got me in her claws.

When I do venture out, I carry my camera and I got a couple of wonderful shots this week. Jerri also sent me some great ones so I'll share a few if ya'll want to have a look.

Jerri took these of the Chick prancing around in the horse pasture. Another of the Chick and Abby, just being best buds. I took this photo of Jillian's enjoyment of Nanaw's gift of chocolate stars. I snapped this one of a little monkey sitting in my mimosa tree last Sunday, and this one of Zach and our neighbor, Jeffrey on a sunny April day.

I hope everyone is enjoying their Spring whereever they are!

Wonderful pictures. But how can you miss with such gread subjects. Thanks.

How about a nice cup of Sleepy Time or Cammomile tea? They always soothes me. Or doesn't that sound good?

Those are wonderful photos; the first one, of Chicky, is extraordinary - to me it speaks of the sheer joy of childhood. Lovely!

I had a dreadful time with hot flashes until I started taking black cohosh and dong quai. I just used the cheapest stuff I could find at Wal-Mart (they try to suck you in at the health food stores, and the added expense is NOT necessary), and it worked like a miracle. Have you tried it?

Personally I carry a bottle of Jack Daniels in my purse to ward off menopausal symptoms. It must have worked, or maybe I forgot I had them. j/k... I'm lucky never to have had any such troubles, I feel for those that do.

As always, superb pictures, Brenda! And yes, I'm enjoying spring to as much as possible. It was 90 degrees here today, which is a bit too warm for this time of year. I'll tolerate it, though.

I hope you get through this phase of menophase quickly, so you may feel better soon!

Great pictures. I looked at all your photos on web shot and they are all really good. Loved the one of the chick in tree and the one of Zach & Jeffery. Keep up the good work.

I must not have been here in a while; scuse me while I put on my shades! No, really it's very pretty. I had what you're experiencing back in my early '30's due to endometriosis (sp) causing a hysterectomy. No fun. Try what Ellen suggested, please. Now, I'm gonna look at the pictures. I know they're great as usual with the subjects you have! :)

Your pictures never fail to make me smile, Brenda. : )

I'm pretty sure that I'm in the midst of enduring Menopause's Evil Little Sister. I wonder if she'll adequately prepare me for the Big Guns just around the corner?
