Pumpkin Picking

Ralph wanted to go pumpkin picking today! It was cool enough for me to wear my new vegan moto jacket. Ralph wore shorts. We are complete opposites in some ways.

Yes, I have gained weight. That’s what happens when you don’t exercise for months, because you’re afraid you’ll hurt the pinched nerve more. Now I know that by not moving my left arm (osteoarthritis) I did it a big disservice. My keep moving those joints. I still don’t have full range back and I have constant pain.

Move it or lose it takes on a whole new meaning when you have arthritis.

It’s surprising to find an orchard in Las Vegas, but it’s a nice one.

We picked some Granny Smith Apples, zucchini and butternut squash in addition to our pumpkins.

Ralph got some pumpkin donuts… I bought some kettle popcorn… and we both got apple cider. Yummy!

I am happy that fall is here. We probably won’t see really cool temperatures until November. This morning it was in the 60’s, but in the 70’s by the time we left the orchard. It’ll be in the 90’s today.

By the way, I stayed by the wheelbarrow on the paved road most of the time after tipping over really badly a couple times of times. Once I almost wasn’t able to right myself. I should have brought my cane or hiking sticks, but I wasn’t feeling bad. Meniere’s is always with me, even if I should forget about it. Just as the arthritis, fibromyalgia, asthma, etc. They may not bother you for awhile or you may feel fine first thing and then boom!!! It hits out of nowhere.

I am still thankful that I haven’t had a full blown vertigo attack for a couple of years. Now they are much shorter and less debilitating. Of course my balance is shot now and I definitely tip more. I think today was the first time I thought I was going down from tipping.

Love, Peace and Light! Rita
