From The Orchard

We visited Poverty Lane Orchard to pick apples today.  Friends invited us, and we had a great time despite the fact that my oldest daughter had to stay home...  There comes a time, in every mother/daughter relationship, when your cycles cross at just the right time and all hell breaks loose.  Not fun.  BUT, we did manage to forgive each other as the day wore on, and smiles were renewed.

Poverty Lane Orchard is very picturesque...  In fact, there is a movie from the early 80's, I believe, called "Ghost Story" and part of that movie was filmed in the orchard.  If my memory serves me well, the scene was that of a dream.  Where lovers meet, embrace and dance.  I think the woman was a ghost... hence the movie title.

Anyway, wanted to share some photos of our trip... I'm even sharing a pic of myself to show the marked improvement in the Bell's Palsy.  I am mostly still affected by what I feel, not so much by how I look.  My eye still doesn't blink (still playing pirate in the night...;o) ) and my lips and cheek still FEEL funny, but not nearly as obvious as it was even two weeks ago.   

Hope you're all enjoying your weekend!

Oh...I LOVE apple picking!  I try and do it every year.  
I'm SO very glad you had some fun out there.  The pics are perfect.   And you look like a little angel under the ol' apple tree.    : )

Love you,

That is really a beautiful place!!! YOU will notice the effects of the Bells Palsy for some time to come, it will make you a bit self concious, but remember, its all part of the recovery. Keep tapping on your face lightly to stimulate the cranial nerves ;)
Your doing great!

You know what??  I scrolled to see the pictures first off, and when I got to the last picture, I thought to myself, "Hey I guess the Palsy is finally cleared up."  Then I read that I was mostly right.  I know that is a huge relief to you, and signs that it shouldn't be much longer before things return to normal.
