The bonus this Winter? gas prices have stayed down .... "touch wood".
I was in need of a double boiler. Rankin had one for $59.00 of very good quality, however I could not justify adding another pot to my already "overstuffed" pot and pan cupboard at that price. This morning I checked with the Wiarton Home Building Centre and found an insert for $21.99. They called me back to tell me they had one in stock and they were on sale for $4.99 this week ! I didn't even hesitate to take them up on that deal of the week ....
It seems like the last few days we have had a whole Winter's worth of snow dumped on us. Of course our tractor has not been working just when we need it the most.
My girlfriend, Sharon, called me from Florida today !!! they are having cool weather down there too, but only in their 50's , not quite as cold as here yet. We had a nice chat.
I most certainly appreciate when anyone does anything for me, or gives me something. I am flattered that I am cared enough about that someone is thoughtful enough to have me in their thoughts, so I could never imagine not be grateful.
I was doing some more reading up on my enemy "depression" and "bipolar". I need to lighten up on myself somewhat as for the length of time I have been sick over the past couple of years my body has suffered in not only weight gain by the medications, but also by loosing muscle mass as well since I have not been so active for many of these past months. I have to realize it will take time for me to regain energy levels I had once, being careful I do not become "sick" again in a bipolar "high", but hopefully to retain a somewhat "norm" state.
Yes at times I am my own worse enemy, but the more I have been educating myself on Bipolar Disorder the more I am being aware of what is what with myself. You can not educate yourself enough is my opinion.
With more Mental Awareness out in the open now a days, thanks to organizations like "Bell Let's Talk", there is no reason for ignorance any longer. Check out how you can you be a part of it every day and on the 27th of January by going HERE. Thank you in advance for your support.
Today I managed to do 1/2 mile walk with Leslie Sansone, and another walk with my other friend, Sharon. So far I have walked 5923 steps (4 km) today ! My long term goal will be 10,000 steps a day once I get myself built to do that on a daily basis.
