Friday - Wrapping Up The Week


This was not a good week for me. I've been under the weather. I canceled all my meetings and bible study this week. Why? I've been dizzy - a touch of vertigo? My husband thinks it is my blood pressure. I have low blood pressure and when it drops even lower, I experience dizziness. I've had this since I was a child - my grandma called it the vapors.  I've upped my hydration and am feeling much better. The mornings are the worst for me after 8 hours of no liquids. 


While I have you here would you mind visiting my post that I only received 20 views. I think it got overlooked by Wednesday's Hodgepodge. Normally I wouldn't self-promote a post but I took a lot of pretty photos of my walk. 


A Walk Across the Sundial Bridge


Thanks, I appreciate it. 





So as you can see,  the daffodils have bloomed along the walkway. 
My son planted these years ago - and they still are popping up. These were old bulbs that we had - I thought they were too old. He proved me wrong and they have been blooming every year since. 






Weatherwise we've been consistently in the mid-50s to 60s. Some days we have sun and other days we're just cloudy. We're not used to too much cloudy or dreary weather...

I am looking forward to my favorite pastime, in the summer. 

Complaining about the heat! 





 

Redding is labeled the sunniest city in California, and the second sunniest city in the United States by the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration. Yuma Arizona is #1. 

I thought it was funny, that the day this photo was taken it was cloudy! 

I was really hoping I could get out and go for a hike this weekend but perhaps I better wait till the dizziness completely has gone for at least 24 hours. Meanwhile, I am over on Ancestry - trying to clean up some things. I'm also getting ready to start pre-posting for the April A-Z blogging challenge on my Genealogy Blog. 

Hoping this post finds you all well and happy. 

Debby

PS. I found out what those Geo Domes were about. More on that later.

  1. Hi Debby! I love the Daffodils in this post. We finally got some sunshine today after literally weeks without it. My husband thinks we need to move back to California where there is more sunshine. We may end up in Southern Utah instead. There is lots of sunshine in St. George, which is right on the Utah and Arizona border. I hope you are feeling better soon. I will come back and visit again soon!

    1. I am prone to SAD but since living here it’s not that much of an issue.

  2. The Daffodils are so pretty. If it keeps staying warm like this ours will be blooming too. I wish the sun would shine anyway. Tired of this gloom.
    I'll pop over to your Hodgepodge. Guess I missed it too! Sorry. I do tend to be scatter brained these days. I wish I'd get more followers and commentors. I'm getting discouraged and may quit altogether.
    Blessings. xx

    1. Don’t you dare quit. It takes time. I only have like 40 followers. I figure I have as many as I can handle.

  3. Im surprised to see you have daffodils blooming already. I haven't seen any around town yet. I think the ones I had in my flower bed no longer bloom. They have been my favorite flower ever since I was a kid. I remember choosing them (fake ones) for a Brownie Scout Mothers Day project back in first grade.

    1. They are one of my favorites as well. When my baby sister was born my dad brought me a dozen yellow daffodils. They have a special place in my heart.

  5. I'm so sorry you've had dizziness, Debby. That can be so scary. I hope you are feeling better since you wrote this post. Yellow daffodils already! It's still cold and rainy here, and we are in the thick of Winter. And we can get snow in the mountains until April or May. I like that wall mural in your town. : )

    1. Today we're waiting for some rain which would no doubt mean more snow in the mountains for you.

  6. I know from my friend that low blow pressure is a horror to live with. It is certainly nothing to mess around with or ignore. High BP can be controlled with meds, Low its almost impossilbe. Sorry to hear of your struggles with it. I just checked and our city, Bradenton FL had 249 days of sunshine last year. we love it hear because of the sunshine. i jut pulled up the sight you mentioned and now i am depressed. we had world wide heat records last year. and the past 3 weeks, we went 10 days no sun, which had not happened in the past 40 years. we are swinging madly as much as 40 degrees over night, cold and hot cold and hot. 2 days ago we were at 84 and this is January. nothing to be done, just wait and adjust. I have bouts of vertigo, i know that feeling. no idea why. bp is good . I am headed to your other post, but 20 is a good amount to me. Most of the time I have 15 to 18, but I do have 2 blogs, one is Madsnapper and the other is my dog Beau's blog. mothers yard was always filled with daffodils, just like these, but she called her jonquils.

    1. As long as I keep hydrated I am good. Vertigo is no fun. Especially when you lie down with your eyes closed and still have it!
      While both jonquils and daffodils are related there are some differences. I think most people get them mixed up.

  7. Cannot wait for Spring to arrive here with our daffs. I hope your dizziness goes away. This happens to my husband when he does not eat. Janice
