Sometimes in very hot or very cold weather, I get back into depression. I think it has to do with not going outside and getting proper exercise and eating too much meat. Not to mention turning into a recluse.
But the fruit is now in and so many vegetables to choose from. There is a study from KU regarding Depression. Basic rules are, exercise, eat fish or take fish oil, socialize with at least 1 person a day, get sunshine or take vitamin D, don't ruminate, get a good night's sleep. Common sense, right? Sometimes I need to remind myself of common sense. And act on it.
I have been looking at new houses. Some are way out in west Lawrence...all of 4 miles from city center. I am a wimp. Some are too modernly sterile. Need a ranch type house with a master bedroom and laundry on first floor.
I need to get out of my rut. Either move or do fix up here. Girlfriends are so useful.My friend convinced me to join a 60 plus exercise class. I walk well on flat, but give me a chair to get out of or stairs and it is not a pretty sight. I have to swallow my pride and go with the 80 year olds till I see some progress.
I need to get out and take more photos.
But I still do weekly photos at the Shelter.
I always enjoy meeting dogs. My Emmy is getting older and I look at each dog as a "Wonder what if..."
Baloo is up for adoption. He weighs 145 lbs. He sings when you bring out treats. I really like him, but do I need 145 lb. dog?
Or what about Esmerelda, found as a stray, listed as a Basset mix who we think might be a Petite Brussels Griffon? Cutest darned dog. If I was really ready for a small dog, I would choose her.
Meanwhile, I await tonight's storm.
