On May 30th I posted that I had started to clear the ladder fern from the larger of our stone retaining walls and posted the following photo
Last week I pulled the last of the plants out and disposed of them - not good for the shoulder but it is looking better. I now have a lot of roots to remove and will put some more plants in the bed above the wall.
Of course, there is always "help" when one goes out in the garden. This photo was taken quite late in the day hence the low sun.
I have done some more walks. The Parkinson group went back to the Onerahi Airport but walked on the lower road alongside the water. I went up Parihaka again on Saturday but it was a much harder track and I can still feel the muscles on my legs. (no camera this time but next time I will take it as it was lovely bush.
I joined the local Senior Net on Thursday and met a former neighbour from Awanui who moved away 19 years ago. A lot of catching up to do.
My lovely hubby has been having more falls (two yesterday) he seems to be agitated and won't sit still and forgets his walker. He is due to have his Aclasta for osteoporosis but as I have gone down with a nasty cold/sinus infection I am keeping away from the Rest Home at present.
It was very cold again this morning (a friend just told me her thermometer registered -1 C in her roof area). I have spent most of the day in bed and missed two meetings I had planned on attending. Still I had some delicious vegetable soup that I made yesterday and am starting to feel a little better.
