strong like bull

 Strong like bull.  That a phrase I heard a lot growing up.  It wasn't particularly about me, but our dad would say it.  

I'm thrilled to say that my covid is kind of over.  I'm afraid to jinx it.  But apparently, prayers, vitamins, ivermectin and monoclonal antibodies all given early work to treat covid. I was mildly achy on Wednesday and stuffy. Thursday I had the antibodies.  Got a doozy of a fever and chills that night for a few hours. Woke up Friday morning feeling clear headed and just a little coughy and coldy.  Still coughed on Saturday....but am not stuffy today and not coughing.  

And guess what?  I've got my taste back.

So call me blown away!!! 

I was vaxxed and perhaps that helped lessen the symptoms.

But as of today, I feel like my cold is  over and I will wait a few more days to start writing my letters to my local doctor, who did nothing at all to help me.

Just imagine if everyone had a doctor who was willing to give them treatments that kept them out of the hospital.  Shameful.  It didn't have to be this way and doesn't have to be this way...

Guess what, when I got my positive covid test at Walgreens drive-up I also go a email about a trial. 

If I had been 25 I would have done this.  But as I'm over sixty I did not want to get the placebo and I was actually already taking ivermectin.  So.  This is hopeful that someone is not afraid to find treatments.

 Why there is such fear and tremendous lies surrounding these treatments is utter insanity.  I'm thankful for the Frontline Doctors and Alison Morrow and Dr. Drew and even Joe Rogan for their great information and courage to find a cure, tell the truth and get cancelled even when the people with bad motives tried to stop them.  One day soon, I will create a big blog with all my links to what I studied for almost two years...and how doing that helped me save myself from covid...with the help of the Lord and your mighty prayers too.

Cause getting those drugs early and getting my taste back so quickly was pretty miraculous.  

I was the one who was earmarked for death. Mrs. Comorbidities.

I'm so thankful.

Prayers please

Good morning friends.

Just wanted to let you know I've got Covid.  So I would like prayers please.

Im getting the Monoclonal Antibodies this afternoon. Yay.  I'm taking everything I can get my hands on.

Unlike the doctors in Wisconsin, I believe in early treatment.  My dr. did absolutely nothing.  So for the biggest crisis in the history of the US (they'd have us believe) you doc says....let us know if you can't breath.

It's criminal.  They didn't even suggest Monoclonal Antibodies.

Gotta doctor yourselves friends. The world has gone mad.

So I am taking Quercetin, Zinc, D and C.  Melatonin, Pepcid.

These are all recommended by Dr. Drew and the Frontline docs. Also I'm gargling and cleaning my nose.  This is the kill the germs in our mouth and nose just like we clean the germs on our hands.

So I feel like I have a cold right now.  My prayer is to stop it in its tracks so I don't go to hospital.  

Melinda has it too and she is going to MA's today too.  She has asthma so let's pray for her too,

Love you guys,

Almost made a clean getaway......

All my tho'ts from evil keep

"Never keep a trouble half an hour on your own mind before you tell it to God.  As soon as the trouble comes, quick, the first thing, tell it to your Father.”  

Charles Spurgeon

My favorite Avett Bro song, I think.

I'm not sure what the brothers singing and the cello player just sitting there means....

if you have any ideas feel free to share the with me.  

Encourage one another,

And quick! tell it to your Father.

Let's try this...I think it's a sure path to peace.

 So what do I want to share with you today??  My dear dear high school friend, Jeanine, came to town on Sunday.  It was a very short and really wonderful visit!

She told me I need to keep blogging.

And while I don't really feel like I have anything to say, I'm gonna dig in and try.

Let's start with aging and death.

I feel old and think I am old.

Yet, a few weeks ago, my friend in France, Corey, shared a story about her mother in law in Normandy.  Said mother in law is 92.  She is moving to a new place and starting on the renovations!!

Well, if this isn't just the thing I need to hear.  No need to park the car quite yet.  I want to live until I die...just like Corey's mother in law.  

My little renovation!!!  A long time coming.  Say...twenty years!  We built a patio but never felt comfortable sitting out there because of the closeness of the neighbors.  They are lovely people but it was just too close to feel relaxed.  I mean I sometimes run Ginny out to her lead in my pajamas!

The fence project took only one day!  The man was great at this job!  I think it's just beautiful. Why would we wait until October?  Because we were in line....a long line.  

Today I bought some white spray paint and I'm going to freshen up a metal side table.  I also bought cement cleaner.  We will see how that goes.  Two jobs I've never done.  I'll let you see how they turn out!

I'd like twinkle lights and a Solo bonfire too.  

Good things come to those who wait. (not in the Bible)

You Can Close Your Eyes by James Taylor

Dead in a Ditch

Do you know this song by the Avett Brothers?  
It's called Murder in the City.
It starts off with such an odd premise, so odd that it reminds me of what I always say to the kids when they are on the road and I don't hear from them....  "I thought you were dead in a ditch." 

After the song starts with the idea of murder,  it veers off to the most lovely, tender expressions of family love.

Maybe when the boys (Avett Bros) left home their mother said, "Don't get Murdered in the City."

What do you think?

See the geese in chevron flight flapping and racing on before the snow They've got the urge for going and they've got the wings so they can go.......

I'll ply the fire with kindling and pull the blankets to my chin I'll lock the vagrant winter out and I'll bolt my wandering in I'd like to call back summertime and have her stay for just another month or so But she's got the urge for going so I guess she'll have to go
