I sit on the couch, staring out the picture window across the room from me.


Thinking. I am sad and adjusting.

I found out recently that I’m in the early stages of Alzheimers. It became more apparent this morning when I was reading through blogs. I always have several done that I can pick from to post. Others I write and post when completed.

Anyway, it became apparent that my Alzheimer’s occasionally affects my writing. There I sat, reading and rereading, trying to make a change in one, but couldn’t come up with a way to change it that suited me.

I will definitely continue to write blogs. Anxiety is one of the first symptoms of Alzheimer’s.  My meds keep my stomach upset most of the morning. The anxiety keeps me from driving at this time.

So, basically, I will blog what I find in our 2-acre yard like I have been doing. I am knitting a lot, making diamond-shaped washcloths for Christmas presents.

Anyway, I will continue to write blogs. I enjoy them too much not to.


The rose above is a family heirloom that grows in my butterfly garden. My great grandfather gave it to my grandmother when my mother was born in 1929.


p.s. I heard about two positive results this afternoon about coconut oil and its affects on Alzhiemers.
You might research it. I haven’t had time yet.

    I love your blog so much! Thank you for your beautiful photos & thoughtful posts. I’m very glad I’ve subscribed.

    As for Alz, I hope you have very minor case or better yet, complete remission! Also, I love the health website, blog & podcast called The People’s Pharmacy. The hosts are pharmacists, and they do give credit to alt medicine & home remedies, and discuss research & western medicine. You might like it.

    Thanks again!


  4. There’s a lot of hope out there nowadays and help too as to how to cope with Alzheimers, I wish you all the best, keep positive.


  5. It’s probably worry that fuels the anxiety, I would imagine. I have found in the past that the best defense against worry was keeping busy, and blogs are great for keeping oneself busy as you know. Maybe this week will bring some positive news from the doctors. Take care.


    • I am anxious to see the doctor Tuesday. I’m knitting a lot and working on blogs. It’s too hot to do anything outside now. maybe we’ll cool off enough to make it comfortable.
