It's Just the Wind

It is a beautiful Sunday afternoon. It is very quiet now as the grandchildren have all left and Hubby is working back at the farm. I like being alone as long as I know it is not permanent. I have not done much other than a little laundry and the always unpleasant task of mopping the floors.

Again, I apologize for the picture quality. I am reluctant to invest in a good camera or even to invest in the time needed to upgrade my iPhone. And yes, Elizabeth, I will get around to it eventually.

I wanted you to see and hear the wind blowing in the pine trees. It seems so pleasant to me - just a soft, gentle breeze making a quiet whisper through the trees. There is a pretty cardinal up there but it did not photograph well. you notice the picture has a slight jerking motion to it? That is my hand tremor. It is a family thing that is not much more than a nuisance.

But now, my eyelid has started twitching. So, like I know you all do as well, I punch in hand tremor and eye twitching to get my computer generated diagnosis. It came back with Schizophrenia and an advertisement for Prozac. I wonder what I would get if I added in ears ringing?

Someone in the family went to see Dr. Lane (you remember, he is the "Looking For A Husband Diet" doctor) and after proceeding to tell him what she had, he bluntly asked, "Now do you want to hear my diagnosis?"


  1. My husband has a tremor, down thru his family is called essential or familial tremor. There are some meds that do give some relief.

    That is some howling wind ... we have it here today also, touched with some brief snow showers.

    I hope you will pop by to help us bring 'angel love' for a young girl who is sick.

    Thank you.
    Have a beautiful week ~

  2. hoping there's nothing to worry about for your health...

    and i love my alone time - for long periods of time. :) i'm a hermit at heart...

  3. I am so hesitant about typing health problems in to the internet. It always scares the heck out of me. I hope this isn't anything very serious. Let us know what you find out - or if it goes away. We had that wind here today. Hope it goes away for both of us.

  4. In general I don't like wind but I must admit it sounded good on the video. I hope you haven't been affected by the tornados that we have seen on the news.

  5. I love the sound of the wind in the trees.
    Stay away from the computer when wondering about health's full of scary stuff!

  6. Oh, so much for self diagnosis. Don't we all
    do it?
    Without a tripod it is very hard not to have
    a trembling video! I love the calming sound of
    the wind in your trees. It could put a lady to sleep!

  7. We have had to much high wind here lately. That eye twitching is awful now I have floters in my eye and the Doctor said we will just have to watch them. How can I help But watch them.?????

  8. So glad we can't write ourselves prescriptions for our self-diagnosis!

  9. LOL this post made me smile cause I always look for symptoms on the net and I get the worst diagnosis !

  10. So peaceful there...I need a better camera too, I know but the new sewing machine will come first! I know what you mean about those medical sites'll make you worry about ridiculous things if you aren't careful! :-)

  11. At our last house, I loved to hear the wind up high in the pine trees! I, too, have essential tremor in my hands. Scared me at first, cause my dad had Parkinson's.
    You have been such a great supportive blog friend...just wanted to let you know I'm taking an extended break from my blog but I'll still be checking in with you. God bless.
