Random Thoughts and Critical Thinking
Tuesday morning 0636. Only 5 more days until I go to Cebu to see that specialist about my swollen legs. You know, I know that the swelling is also due to poor blood circulation. When I raise my legs up at night, by morning my legs look almost normal again. As I sit and walk around during the day, they get bigger, especially while sitting down. There is a special massage that can be done to increase blood flow. It is supposed to be that you can do it yourself, but why would I want to do that when I can have a woman do it for me?
Although some of the guys here suggested that I get 2 women for each leg, Nening is going to be the one to do that Lymphedema massage for me. Of course I will have to increase the amount of money we give her each month, to be fair. I have already been paying her extra for cleaning my legs with guava leaf water. I think that will stop at the end of this week if I get in to see the doctor in Cebu on Monday (15th). See the post First Post, Long Time for concerns about that. I really do not want to put salaries on here so I will just say that she is happy with the amount she gets for her regular duties and the increased amount for the extra duties.
Something else new that I just started on 7 May is a couple of things I saw online that is suppose to help your body. I’m going to try both of them for 1 month to see if I notice any difference. The first is a combination of 1 cup pineapple, 1 cup cucumber and 1/2 cup of water. Blend together and drink. It’s suppose to help clean out your colon. The second is 6 oz warm water, Chamomile tea, 1 tbls apple cinder vinegar and 1 tbls lemon juice. It’s suppose to increase your metabolism while you sleep to help you lose weight. I figured I needed all the help I could get. If I don’t notice a difference after 1 month, I’ll stop. If it starts making me feel weird, I’ll stop. I’ll tell the doctor in Cebu about it. If he suggests I stop, I’ll stop.
I sure wish I could talk my wife into selling this property and leasing the one I told you about in my last post. It’s not far from our current location and it’s also not right on the highway. I get tired of listening to the vehicles whiz by. Many of them without mufflers. She is getting hard of hearing so it doesn’t bother her so much. Me, it seems, my hearing is just as excellent as ever.
Coffee break. This new flavored coffee I ordered from Lazada is okay. It’s cinnamon flavored (requested by my wife). The last bag I have that I ordered is not flavored coffee. It is Benguet coffee. It will be my first time tasting that type of coffee (that I know of) but I’m anticipating it to be good.
I will be eating breakfast soon, it’s 7:52 am now. I’m not sure if I want cereal, toast or grits. I had toast yesterday. I used the cheese bread that we ordered from Sam’s Micro-Bakery. I order from her by Sunday and she delivers it to the house on Tuesday. Christian (at Mango) also orders some of his bread from her. Like the bread for his new steak sandwich. So, I think I will do grits today. It’s been a while since I’ve eaten those. I hope we still have some left. We have been using it to make fried okra and fried green tomatoes, both of which are really delicious. If there is not any left, I’ll go with the cereal. I think I have a box of some fruit and nut cereal still left in there. If not, I do have 3 other kinds of cereal, including Cheerios. All they have around here is regular Cheerios, and they just started getting that (I’m sure it won’t last long). I see that Cheerios has so many different flavors now. The only other ones I have had are Apple Cinnamon and Honey Nut. All the ones I saw I’d love to try, except the Frosted ones. The only frosted cereal I normally eat is Frosted Mini-Wheats and I only eat them because they are more popular and easier to come by then Shredded Wheat. Of course those 2 are not a common thing here either.
I wish I had one of those YouTube reaction channels where people watch movies, listen to music or just try new things and post their experience online. If I can figure out how to do that, maybe I will. I don’t think it will be music though because I grew up during the best time ever for music (60’s, 70’s and early 80’s) and most of the stuff after that is just not so good to me. I do come across some that is good though so I’m not saying ALL the new stuff is bad. I don’t do Tik-Tok, Insta-gram or even Twitter. I’m more of just a Facebook guy. I’m not too sure my channel would do well though because if you come there for my ‘honest’ opinion, that’s what you are going to get. I’m sure I would upset a lot of people and get a lot of ‘thumbs down’ making my channel not so popular and subject to cancellation.
Did you know that if you go to “Windows”, type in “CMD” then type in sfc/scannow, it will do a thorough scan of your computer and fix any errors it encounters?
Nening just brought in my pineapple/cucumber drink. I’ll put it in the freezer for a bit before drinking it.
I’m going to schedule this post for Tuesday, 16 May around 9:00 am. I hope you enjoyed my content and if I think of something else that I think needs to be posted, I’ll start a new post and schedule it for late next week.
