An ACupuncture RX plus more Red Paint

I’ve given an acupuncture treatment for painful swollen knees for a friend here in the park. I know this will help her because when I treat my own knees I feel better and can climb stairs quickly, sometimes without having to go one stair at a time. Yesterday she couldn’t bear weight, today she can.

Finally the winds have died down this morning so I’m going to town to do my errands before they start up again.

Walmart had Cadbury candies out for Easter, the Easter bunny doesn’t stop here….I don’t think so, I got a little over excited and bought a lot of mini eggs. Yum

I did some painting today in red. I painted Jose’s table, I removed the paper and it looks great, much better the plywood took the paint just fine and I sprayed a gloss finish, I’m happy with it.

I also painted the cabinets above and below the fridge black, instead of red or white or purple all colors that I tried first. I painted them black because the fridge has black edges so I think they fit in better this way, I used craft paints and will give them another coat of my good black paint tomorrow. Red and black are a favorite combination for me, and I’ve used it liberally here in GiGi.

I’ve repurposed a three tired wire basket that fell down in the ‘kitchen to use in my bathroom and spray painted it with teal to match the mirrors in my barely turnaroundable bathroom. Right now my shower is full of my supplies for my various projects which I move from here to there hoping one day I will have used them all up and I’m finished with my projects, that will never happen I know, there will always be something to fix or change and I’m good with that.

loving my red!

My old RV on my small budget doesn’t compare to those I see on the various fb pages, but I still like mine the best because it’s all about me and who I am, and who I am is a really old lady on the road wondering what the heck I’m doing and can I really tow my toad down the road? I’ll need to get a trailer for it I’m told, sounds like another expense I’ll have to plan for.

Yikes!

Nice Exchange of Skills

image_566198487508049A neighbor helping me to do some repairs on my RV complained of back pain. I asked if he’d tried acupuncture and he had not. so I offered to give him treatments in exchange for his help.

Word got out in the RV park of the plan and the next day I had 5 women and one man in a circle with needles placed for various concerns and my RV is now level for the first time.  But the neighbor was not one of them, scared of needles!

What doesn’t work as it should, I don’t Expect Anyone to do this for Me but I need some help Please!

IMG_0164What doesn’t work as it should, or at all, or need to remove/replace on my RV

The leak above the cab.

Install new door to water heater ..does it work?
The exterior dents and cracks fill in and clean

Show me how to use meter

I don’t expect anyone to do all this for me, I just need instructions and some help.

Need -ling Happening Here!

I made this little note for those living in my rv park at the request of several residents.

Trade skills with me? I do acupuncture and need help with my RV. Let’s make a trade that only involves our effort, not cash!
I can go to your home or we have permission to use CJ’s home. In fact we could do several people at once at CJ’s in chairs, happy hour with needles?? I do acupuncture using the big points found on the arms below the elbows and on the legs below the knees. ((you’ll need to keep those areas free) That may not seen like enough but these are the most important channels of energy and most effective points. In some instances I’ll chose other points when needed..
One thing to know about AC it doesn’t work in one treatment, especially if the problem is deep seated. You would require at least 3 treatments in three consecutive days, rest a couple days and repeat as needed. Are you ready to do that?

Contact me in the little tioga or call 571 258 7018 to set up a plan. I’ll have my needles ready.

PS I graduated from Texas Institute of traditional Chinese Medicine in 1994 but don’t have a current license to practice here in NM so………..I’m also an RN without a current license, but hey, I’m 75 and ready to travel with GG my gas guzzling rv!
PPS I do sometimes sell my art work!
And I have a website/blog here tailgateart-othon.com
I’m Kathy, and I expect to be here until late January
