Mosaic Monday: Happy Mother's Day





These ranunculus are actually from a few weeks back.  My aching hand has been seriously curtailing both photo editing and blogging.  As I type now, it's reminding me to not overdo it.  This whole thing is getting extremely boring!  I think I may hove to break down and see the doctor (something I really don't like doing...).  :(

So if you don't mind, I'm just going to leave you with these Mother's Day wishes --  may you have a beautiful day, filled with warmth and laughter, and surrounded by those you love best!  xoxo

  11. I hurt my elbow last summer while in Scotland and waited so long I barely have any strength left. Please visit the doctor and do wait as long as I did. Hope you had a blessed Mother's Day.

  14. You need to see the doctor, Mary. They'll probably order an x-ray and you can go from there. Lately, my right hand has been bothering me too and it's kind of scaring me because I use it in my job, and for photo editing. I can't lift the things I can with my left hand. Afraid it's arthritis. Good luck!
    These are scrumptious images here. Thank you for sharing them, despite having to use your hand.

  30. So very beautiful, ranunculus are amazing flowers.
    Mary, I have rheumatoid arthritis, the illness started 12 years ago when I was 36 years old. I urge you to see a rheumatologist, not just a general doctor, ask to see a rheumatologist. Maybe you don't have RA, but one of the biggest symptom of RA is pain in the fingers and hand, especially if you have it both sides. They have many drugs available and these drugs give me a quality of life I wouldn't have if I wouldn't take them. Even if it's not RA, don't endure the pain, you are maybe putting your fingers at risk of developing more problems if you are not treated. I know we don't like to take drugs but sometimes it's the only way to have a better quality of life. Please take this advice from someone who lives with RA and know how you feel : Go see a rheumatologist.
    Good luck !

  31. Mary, the Ranunculus flowers are new to me, I have never heard of them before and your images of same...wow. those are terrific. I would imagine that they would look really neat dried as well. I do hope that you can get some good medical advice for your Arthritis. Arthur came to visit my knees 2 years ago, and he is not fun. Have a lovely week and if you get a chance stop by, I would love a visit~
