Feeling Better :-)

I am feeling better. Last Friday I went by the doctor's office and got a toradol injection and depo medrol injection and a prescription for a medrol pak. I still have a bit of a headache, but things are improving :-D I'll start reading blogs soon.

Frank and I didn't do anything special on our anniversary... other than being together. I did make brownies :-D

Years ago Frank and I both forgot our wedding anniversary. We lived at Ft. Sill (Lawton) Oklahoma then. We found someone to watch Sonja and David (our children) and we went to a u-pick-it farm and picked some sort of field peas that day. As we wrote the date on the packages we realized the special meaning of the day.

Frank and I enjoy being with each other no matter if we are doing something special or not. We are individuals, but yet we are one. We often think the same thing at the same time and that can be a little unnerving :-D

Speaking of crops... our okra is doing nicely.

I love okra... fried is best, then stewed with tomatoes and served over rice and then in any kind of soup.

I hope each of you are having a great week. I'll get around to your blogs soon... I promise!



  1. Great pictures of your veggies! Also great that you and Frank are still in love and great that you feel better. Take care.

  2. I am so glad you're feeling a bit better, Zaroga. I was worried there for awhile. Headaches are SO HORRIBLE and for you to have to get an must have been bad.

    I love your pictures..especially of the okra. You'll have to cook some up and show us! When you're feeling better of course. :)



  3. Glad you are feeling better.
    Now I;ve got the virus, yuk!

  4. Happy to hear you are feeling better. Brownies are a pretty special way to celebrate too! That okra makes me so hungry. I love it any way! Take care.

  5. I am so glad you are feeling better, I keep praying you will! Blogging is not as much fun with our you!

  6. I used to not eat okra but now I LOVE it fried. The bloom picture is gorgeous! Glad you are feeling better.

  7. So glad your feeling better. {{{HUGS}}}

  8. Happy Anniversary and I'm really glad those headaches are under control.

    Nice to have you back!

  9. Glad your headache is better - --I've had toradol for my back but not in years ... :)

    That okra looks so good - A southern fave: Fried okra - dang, been forever since I've had it!

    Now I want some ....laughing!

    Oh, and happy anniversary!

  10. SO HAPPY that you are feeling better. I love fried okra. My husband doesn't like it stewed but I usually put a few small pods on top of my peas when they are about done and it gives the peas a wonderful flavor. He eats them (but not the okra). I am still amazed at how beautiful ALL of your pictures are. Happy Anniversary!

  11. What beautiful okra photos!! I'm glad you are feeling better! I have missed you. Take care. (oh, yeah, Happy Anniv:)

  12. Zaroga,

    I haven't been around to visit in awhile...been very busy! I'm sorry to hear you weren't feeling well, but glad you're feeling better!

    As usual, your photos are awesome! They always make me smile. You really are talented with an eye for photography!

    Have a great evening!

  13. Congratulations a little bit both you and Frank...It is amazing just how quickly those BIG years come. We will be at 50 before we get good and turned around. We are going on 46 right now..seems odd how this has happened.
    I enjoyed reading how you met. Always special.
