I AM GOING TO LIVE!

Well, I actually think I am recovering and I will live! I still can't talk much beyond squeaking but some words are audible and understandable. Woohoo!! Progress is wonderful. On the down side of getting well, I found out that naive and hubby and 14-month old Drew, are all sick. Drew has bronchitis like me, and naive and hubby have the flu, according to their doctor. I personally think he is crazy and they have bronchitis too since they sound exactly like Drew and me! But, he has the degree in medicine not me, so who am I to tell him differently.

I am feeling considerably better than I had been feeling and since today was so "springy" I decided to spend some time outdoors. The sun was shining and the temperature was into the low 50's and it was very pleasant. The meteorologists are predicting strong thunderstorms for our area starting sometime tonight and lasting a couple days so I wanted to enjoy the nice spring-like weather while I had the chance.

The trees are beginning to bud. Off to the right outside my back door is a maple tree and the buds on it are very large and red. They almost look like red velvet and I wished I could reach up and touch them to see if they felt as soft as they looked! To the left of my door is an area that contains day lilies and I could see that there were several of them poking up through the soft brown earth relishing in the warmth of the sun like me. It was so nice that I hated to see the day end and am not looking forward to the upcoming storms. But, without the rain we can't have the flowers and without the bad weather we would never truly appreciate the good weather.....so I guess we will take the bad along with the good and hush up about it.

Martie,

So glad you're feeling better. Seems like you had that crud for quite awhile. Isn't it wonderful when you start feeling normal again?!

Take care of yourself now....spring is coming and with it, many beautiful things!

I'm so glad to hear you are feeling better, but sorry to hear about naive and her family having the sickies.

Man, did we get some strong rain storms last night! WOW! It woke me up twice and I don't think we had any thunder. It was poundin' on the window.

WOW! Sorry to hear the family's sick now, but it's good to know you're getting well. There is hope!

Sounds like I dodged a rain of bullets up there ;) ...

Storms here today too, and 65 degrees. I love spring though! Can't you just smell the wroms?

Take care of yourself hon!
