I’ve been somewhat dormant for a month or so after an unusual episode of light-headedness sent me to urgent-care and to the cardiologist for a few tests. Heart problems have been a problem on my father’s side of the family, and I thought it prudent to make sure my episode wasn’t some harbinger of doom for me. Long story short, my heart metrics and cholesterol and whatnot all seem to be reasonably healthy—whew! Still no answer for my episode, but it doesn’t seem to be heart related. Now I feel I can get back to normal life.
As I am writing this, the rain has not yet begun to fall outside. Forecast calls for thunderstorms today and tomorrow—at least it is supposed to clear out by Saturday. We managed to plant a few things in the vegetable garden this past week. Cucumber, okra, radish, pepper, tomato, strawberry, eggplant, kohlrabi, and Swiss chard are all in the ground (the latter three we’ve never tried before).
April showers bring May flowers.
