OUCH! I was just writing a short bit ago how I am staying busy to keep anxiety down and I have been doing good and them BAM! I stepped outside and my heart just felt like it was racing! I was really taken off guard because I have been doing so well.
But this is life with panic and anxiety. It can come from nowhere and when you don’t even expect it at all. It has calmed a little since I have been steadily writing but it has not completely quit racing. I guess I just have to accept it as a reality and face it head on but man can it be hard to do. But I am trying and I am doing all I can to adjust and try to keep it out of my mind. It is times like these when it comes out of no where that bother me the most.
I have written about my little pal Buddy before. 14 this year and he is a mix between Pom/Pap. I love him and I think he is probably the best dog as far as kindness I have ever had. he does not bite, attack or even bother anyone. Just pet, love and treats. However, as he gets older he developed a skin allergy. So, after trying everything that friends and Vets suggested someone told me to use a Listerine mix.
So, I figured it couldn’t hurt. You mix equal parts of yellow Listerine and water, like a cup of each and two teaspoons of oil. For me, I used liquid coconut oil. Well, I have been trying it for a few days and wanted to share that I am already seeing results! So, for any of you who have dogs with skin allergies, it may just work! I sure hope so. So far, so good!
Still having fun drawing and painting and writing and yes, making fairies & mermaids. I am trying to stay focused as I try and stem the flow of anxiety issues. I have also YES started back with yoga and Tai-Chi. So, I am trying to be productive as I go along. I just want to share with fellow bloggers who share their journey with me!
I said the pic of my marigolds was 7th generation but it was last year so 6th. This year will be seven. These are the zinnias from last year. some are full bloom and some are not.
Here they are from last year. Just starting to pop up this year! the other variety I have are even more beautiful and very full bloom!
A few years ago, 8 to be exact, a friend told me to save my Marigold and Zinnia seed from the flowers as the die off, place them on paper towels and let them dry. Then she said to place them in a paper bag and re-plant each year instead of buying a 97 cent bag that holds maybe ten. I did and now at year seven, they are growing and each year I collect hundreds of them and I have never had to buy anymore since. So, I thought I would pass that along to my fellow gardening bloggers! It WORKS!
