Trying to keep my tasks light before I went to the spinal manipulator, so as to not necessitate a double shower today, I wrote a bit and replaced the popped out lens in Spice’s glasses and tightened the screw that was fortunately still in place, just very loose. One of the closet rods on Spice’s side of the closet had fallen and couldn’t get up – as well as the clothes thereon contained. This was repaired, strengthened and the garments were replaced back in their proper positions.
The Spice decided that she needed her spine manipulated also, so we cleaned up a bit and headed in the direction of the back-cracker’s office. On the way we took YD the portion of peaches we had gathered for her. Arriving at our destination, we hardly had time to sit down before we were called back to a treatment room. A bit later many of my vertebra were put in different locations, hopefully the right ones and hopefully to stay there for a while – I felt better all over more than anywhere else.
The doc cracked up the Spice also and we headed for the home front. The rest of the day was relax time so as to rest the back and not undo anything done by the manipulator and give it time to settle into the new positions. The most difficult thing I did was to peel and cut up some peaches for the Spice and I – several times.
Spoke to OD from Texas (on the phone, of course) for a while and she asked if we had relatives from Germany – this because GM5 was adding suffixes on most all his words that were distinctly German sounding. She got him to say some for me and I found myself hoping that they wouldn’t take him to an October-fest for several more years. Sure do miss those Grunts out there.
We have had some rain and the zinnias and marigolds in the garden are really showing off – the former with their bright oranges and purple-reds and the latter with their bright golden yellow. The heat (and the rain) has kept me from much serious work in the garden, which is definitely on the downhill side of the growing season. Even if I didn’t eat any of the produce, I would still just enjoy seeing the plants grow and give forth the veggies. God does all things well. ec
