An oak leaf in our yard. There isn't an oak tree anywhere near us that I know of. I wonder where it blew in from?
One day last week I went for a walk around the yard and found a few things to photograph.
There isn't much going on outside these days. We have had some sunshine, cold, dustings of snow, rain and clouds. I haven't been too far in the car to take pictures so the yard would have to do.
This old plough tine which I unearthed in the yard last year is getting a nice patina to it.
The bird bath fairy might have to don her skates on this day.
The cement 'pond' (birdbath) isn't fit to drink from either.
There is frost on this mini pumpkin that I tossed into the garden.
The large pumpkin that I chopped in half has had its seeds devoured by the crows.
The frost got to these mini white pumpkins.
My little tree in the dining room brightens the gloom of the darker days and in the evenings. I have it decorated with just a few vintage ornaments and sitting in a #2 crock. The Santa face topper was on hubby's bedroom tree when he was a boy and I'm sure the rest of the ornaments were on their big tree or perhaps displayed on the mantel.
I saw the physiotherapist this morning and he did the Epley Maneuver for Vertigo on me 4 times. Wow! If you have never been dizzy before, this treatment is kind of freaky but I think it worked. The first time I got so dizzy that my eyes started fluttering very fast like something from a horror flick. It was really freaky!! The rest of the times it didn't do that so he thinks the crystals went back in place to the middle ear where they belong. At the end of each procedure, when I sat up, I was very dizzy and hung on to the bed for dear life! I was quite nauseous and light headed afterwards for about 2 hours but am fine now and even ate lunch. It wasn't a pleasant experience but if it works then so be it. Hopefully I won't have to do this again but Vertigo can return unexpectedly just as it came unexpectedly. It's amazing to think that there are tiny crystals in the middle ear which help us keep our balance and that they sometimes get dislodged into the wrong canal. A Mr. Epley discovered a method of moving these crystals back into place and thus restoring balance. It doesn't always work but I sure hope this was successful today! Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers about this. I'll keep you updated as to how I'm feeling in a few days.
Now, I'd like to wish my many blog friends in the United States a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving Day on Thursday. I hope you enjoy your time with family and friends.
