It is summer time, isn’t it?

I can’t believe how bloody cold it’s been!  Yesterday a measly 18 degrees.  Today it’s going to be a whopping 22 — wtf!

and to add to the joy of cool, rainy days I’ve managed to pick up some kind of virus.  Got a nasty lung thing going on, the only upside is that it gives me a sexy voice.  However, don’t much feel like talkin’ sexy to anyone the way I’m feeling.  Hopefully, it’ll run its course by the weekend — have a wedding to go to and grandchildren to look after. Their poor mom is sick, too.  And in the wedding.  Hope she recuperates in time.

Went for some more acupuncture on my shoulder yesterday.  I HATE acupuncture — it hurts!  But, my arm feels better today — I’ve actually been able to type all this without once having to stop and shake feeling back into it.  Yay for pain.  Poor Dr. Richardson, though, he was suggesting by the end of our session that maybe I find an alternative treatment as I’m so sensitive to the needles.  It’s probably hard on the nerves to have your patient shrieking and screaming while you jab them with sharp pointy things.  But, then again, that’s why I pay him.  I am not a lover of pain, believe me, but I think I’ll stick this out.

I cannot believe how late I’ve been sleeping in since I got home.  Today I didn’t wake up until almost 9.  It’s been 8 o’clock the other days, but even that is late for me.  Am going to have to make a concerted effort to get up earlier.  Don’t want to waste my vacation time by sleeping it all away.  I’ve got a list about a mile long of things I should/want/need to do before going back to work and so far, I haven’t accomplished much.  Other than weeding my gardens – which need it badly.  I guess, though, when you’re sick, rest is required.  I think I’ll ease up on myself just a bit.

Thought I’d throw in a couple of pictures of our  landscaping project.  It’s a big’un, but it’s coming along nicely.  We should be all done by the end of the week.  Cross my fingers.  Tim deserves some holiday time, too!

Ciao for now, have a good day!

    Go gentle, there, good woman! Rest has been the order of the day around here. Some who ignored the command ended up with pneumonia. It’s not a nice one so I hope you can give in and let your body heal.

    Plus…have you noticed how many people come home with a respiratory thing after flying? Hmmmm…

    How great that you have a partner who can do all that sort of ‘stuff’. Makes me think he might have been raised on a farm. Hope you feel better soon – Amy

      Hi Amy,
      I’m taking it as easy as I can with all the ‘stuff’ I have to do. Tim’s pretty amazing, but didn’t grow up on a farm — probably should have though, he’s a very resourceful kind of guy.

    The garden is looking lovely.
    I do hope you’re feeling better.
    Greetings from a frozen Johannesburg.

      27 degrees! you call that winter! LOL! I wish we could get somewhere near there. Try the acupuncture — seriously, I’m a huge wimp with no threshold for pain.
