Lesson 545 – Quotable Chicks

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks 

“Sometimes,’ said Pooh, ‘the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”
― A.A. Milne

 ***

We’ve made it through school vacation. It wasn’t the weather we had wanted but we still managed to get sleepovers, vats of popcorn, movies, and pizza for lunch into our week.

Yesterday I visited my Doctor for a yearly checkup, I’ve been plagued by Achielles tendonitis. It’s not a horrible case but it does make me look much older than my years for the first few steps in the morning and after I’ve been siting for a long time.

My Doctor’s advice? Make sure I walk a few miles each day (along with gentle stretching.)

How refreshing is it that my Doctor has put my health into my own hands instead of into a pill bottle’s. Responsibility for our lives and actions, it’s the way we like to do things around here.

Hey, if the weather is nice where you are, (and even if it’s not) enjoy it and go out and take a walk this weekend, not because you have to, but because you can.

See you next week.

As always, happy weekend everyone, health and happiness (and safety) to your flock.

  1. The point is well taken, but each situation varies. I walk, stretch, cut wood, dig in the garden, visit the gym, but without my blood pressure pills, baby aspirin, fish oil, statin, and C-Pap & mask I probably would not be alive today.

      Your point is well taken. Trust me, with kids in our household being treated for chronic Lyme, I am a *big* believer in taking meds when it is necessary. My point wasn’t that one should never take meds, it was more that my doc was letting me try on my own first instead of writing a script that might have solved the symptoms but not the problem.

      Glad to hear that you are doing well, have missed you around the flock lately.

      Wendy
