Get up and go

 My Get Up and Go has returned! I was encourage to start taking 2500 mcg of Vitamin B12 on alternate days.  It only took a few days to really kick in and I'm most pleased.

This morning dawned clear and cool. The air has cleared. There was a good breeze all day. I sat on my side porch and just meditated for a good hour or more this morning. It was just such a grand day!

We have lots of containers of rain water hanging around so I decided to use some of it for something interesting this afternoon. My mother washed her hair in rain water all summer for years. My hair is quite long now so it was going to be a bit of trial and error but I figured it out. I used a small plastic jug and just baled the water over my head. I even managed to forget about the conditioner this time. I toweled it dry then just let the nice breeze finish the drying. I think I'm going to follow my mothers example for the rest of the summer. 

THe Princess and I went for a nice walk this evening. When we returned I paced up and down the road along my place and had a good look at the ditches, or lack of. I think a phone call is going to the township tomorrow. They need to cut the ditches out again because the run off from the road is coming into my yard.

  2. Hmmm, was it discovered that you are low in B vitamins? I'm curious. -Jenn

    1. I had some blood work done. I take a medication for GERD that depletes B12. No doctor had previously brought that to my attention! The changes in the meds I take for issues related to my fibromyalgia and the boost in B12 has really given me a turn around. My thought process and energy levels have improved tremendously.

  3. When I was young we had no running water on our farm. Well, we did if we ran and got it. We collected rain water and melted snow for washing clothes, dishes, bathing, etc. There was a well that provided drinking water too. I never needed to use conditioner until I moved to the city!

    Glad your get up and go returned.

    1. I live quite far in the bush, and we vacation even further into the back country, so dealing with water that doesn't come from a chlorinated city source is very familiar to me.

  6. Yay for B12, I started taking one a day, lower dosage. Not saying I notice a zip but at least I'm not dragging. ;)
    Your garden flowers are pretty and I remember stories of washing your hair in rain water. :)

    1. I am taking 2500mcg every second day. Dissolve under the tongue (sublingual) variety. My blood will be checked again in a couple of months and it may be decreased or start getting once a month B12 shots. It has certainly been beneficial. Noticed the difference after about a week.
