At your touch
I feel the heat rise to my face
my cheeks turn pink
and my heart begins to race.
Hot flashes, you make me blush.
Oh, sorry… were you expecting I was referring to something else? I wish I was. 😉
Yeah, so here I am, just going along my merry way, when all of a sudden BAM… I’m having hot flashes. Noooo, I’m way too young for this! Well, technically speaking, I suppose I’m right about at the age where this begins to happen – I’ll be 50 this summer. But because I’m so young at heart, it just doesn’t seem right, I’m not ready to go through this yet.
But ready or not, here it comes… another hot flash. 😉
It does help explain a lot though in regard to the emotional fluctuations I’ve been experiencing lately – damn hormones are really throwing me off balance. I’m up… then I’m down, I’m laughing… then I’m crying, I’m happy… then I’m sad. Please bear with me, as my posts are likely to reflect a bit of that, hopefully you don’t get whiplash from all of the back and forth (e)motion.
Good thing gardening season is just around the corner. My therapy. And as you can see from the photo, I’ve got a lovely head start on that in buying myself some pretty, pink Gerbera daisies to plant once the weather warms up a bit more. Until then I’ll enjoy having them indoors, ‘blushing’ right along with me.
I’ve also got a spot reserved for a free online cooking workshop this weekend called “How to Use Food to Rebalance Your Hormones.” I already eat healthy, but now with the Big M looming on the horizon, I’m looking for some natural ways to help balance my hormones and ease this process. I’m a huge believer in “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food,” so maybe this will be a help. I hope so, because although I don’t mind blushing for a good reason, having these hot flashes isn’t any fun.
But either way, if I learn any fun, new, yummy recipes I’ll be sure to share them.
May your day be filled with fun and yummy things, and with…
