    While I can agree it may seem wasted I think it's an integral link in the circle of life.

    Taking us from the heights of love to the pits of despair, without it, would damage too many, I fear

    Grief, ..at the time.
    Appreciation..for all we look back on.
    Respect ...for sacrifice made, unknown to us
    A guide ..for how a life could be lived
    Teaching..for the day it's our turn
    When it becomes time to complete our last goal
    How to ease their loss , so they too can know how to..

    Appreciate
    Respect
    Be guided
    & Taught
    To love, grieve, hold us tightly In their heart, yet still let us go & Go Live their best life .

    Until it's their time to complete the circle.

    Grief...yeah, mileage varies
    But I think it serves a purpose, imho

    Hi .
    A fed days FBG's all high 6 or lo low 7
    Steady as she goes I fear, but no nasty surprises and given the circumstances, unsurprising, really

    Thank you @ianpspurs .

    Recovery slower then expected in my eyes, at least.

    Hand becoming a concern, grip & dexterity, after one week Shy of 3 months , not where I was hoping

    And from what at the time was a seemingly simple injury (on the whole):sorry:

    However better news, while walking is still assisted by gutter crutch, I am mobilising more each day, though it has to be said, everyday activities are more like a punishing gym session to which I have to assign a rest day, if I overdo it

    BUT, in a determination to have & meet simple goals, I set myself to be back in the car end of this week & meet Steph for lunch one day.

    Succeeded in the driving last Sunday, had wife's best friend's daughter (henceforth *neice )
    Who has-been using car until she replaces hers.

    Sit with my (just In case I tired ..one leg, & both arms injured , a rather unknown quantity, pushing, pulling, etc )

    But drive went great.:D

    So well in fact that today, I met our Steph

    I missed her birthday dinner recently gone.
    Not fit for a few hours in a restaurant .

    So today we hit nandoes, a delicious dinner, a tiny bit of shopping
    And the kicker....train strike here in the capital.
    Steph off to Richmond no trains so ages on buses etc .

    A quick check I was fine offering daddy-uber,
    And just like that she was delivered safely.

    And on returning home, A small pat on the back for myself, and a feeling of usefulness returns slightly ...:happy:

    So yeah, slower in places, but one or two highlights, as well.:)

    Long difficult day yesterday.
    It's going to be bed rest for me for today at least.

    Creative is a kaleidoscope in Laboscope. Taken from my bed. Played with a tiny bit in Procreate and Snapseed.

    Going back to sleep...

    Interesting colours in your kaleidoscope with kitty kat at top of pattern more subdued than vibrant but it works.
    My home has lots of glass coloured two toned glass and crystal I’ve always had a fascination with glass and kaleidoscopes from being a child holding it up towards the light and seeing all those fantastic patterns evolve from every turn of the kaleidoscope.K

    I haven’t thought of Australia as being a particularly rainy place but the images from around Brisbane look pretty bad.

    Welcome @Nodemus - a high. Are you comparing that to your average over time? Could be a number of things - diet, exercise, medication, stress, sometimes the great unknown. What are your usual readings?

    Sorry yes my readings are between 8-13 in the mornings
    it’s only recently started to get below 13 I’m trying to understand why they seem high in the morning. I don’t eat after 10pm or 9pm.

    Well it’s all moving along and congratulations on your recovery so far. Steady away. Don’t let the horse bolt. Hand - how are you exercising it? Something to squeeze perhaps (tennis ball or something) and maybe something to practice dexterity - I have a pair of steel Chinese Baoding balls to swivel about - don’t drop them on your foot.
