I did not intend to stay away so long, but have had a good reason.
I woke up this morning to a beautiful cool sunny day!
The grass was still wet from dew. We've had an extraordinary amount of rain lately. The dirt has washed up on the bottom of my neighbors fence.
There is new growth on our holly bushes.
Pots of cantaloupe plants are soaking in water waiting to be added to the garden.
Knock-Out roses are blooming finally.
Birds are out looking for food.
Crepe Myrtles are greening up.
And why is all of this so appealing to me? Because I haven't been able to enjoy any of it until now.
I've been sick with another flare-up of Colitis. I have been dealing with an inflammatory disease for years before it started causing Colitis, so I feel like I have the flu whenever it strikes. Just terrible!
However, hopefully, these new meds will keep it at bay.
My old ones just weren't doing the job anymore. Remember, it was only 6 months ago when I had this last time! W-H-A-T????? So, what's a girl to do? Go to the doc and ask for new medicine. I told her I wanted to take fewer and smaller pills this time because the last batch was just too large.
She assured me these would be small.
You decide for yourself.
So, anyway.................I do have something new to share with you. I recently ordered a Jeanne de Arc pillow cover to use in my dining room.
Sorry, I didn't feel like ironing it for you. You should see all of the housework I will be catching up on now!
I love it! It is in here for now. It fits a standard bed pillow and ties on the side.
Hope all of you are having a good week so far. I am finally feeling well enough to get dressed and leave the house. My husband has been holding down the fort as well as he can, but now I'm trying to get "the fort" back in order. He also owes me a visit to our favorite Mexican restaurant for the dinner I missed on Cinco de Mayo. Looking forward to that after I'm ready for rich foods again.
Thanks for stopping by!
