snow & daffodils




Thanks for all the nice wishes-I'm pretty much better except for the searing pain in my sinuses that isn't helped by the very bright sun today. I felt better yesterday. The real problem is most likely the after-effects of Benadryl and cough medicine. They make me feel groggy and cranky. That'll pass in a day or two.
I'm slowly working on getting the baby quilt tied. It's not very big but I'm not very motivated so I do a square and give up.
Most gratifying right now is that my husband and son haven't caught the crud. We are all fortified with lots of Echinacea and so far it seems to be working for the guys. I think it makes the duration of the crud shorter as well. I am not a good patient. An impatient patient at best. I have infinite patience when someone I love is not well but don't extend the same patience to myself. Two days and I'm super cranky. It's been a week-don't ask!. The boys are leaving a wide berth around me for safety sake. Well, I have many things to do and probably only the energy for one or two so I'll check in with you soon. The pictures above are of the snow we got-7 or so inches, and the daffodils I got at the grocery store. They were all buds and I didn't really think they would open but I put them in a sunny window and they are a little picture of spring. Most of the snow is already gone and the temps are climbing. Can spring be far behind?

Thanks for sharing the daffodils, the reminder that spring really will arrive. The snow looks so pretty too. Hope all-things-sickness are soon history for you. Take care.

Good to know you are on the mend. The daffodils are so vibrant - I always loved seeing them pop up in Mom's garden *s*

Ha!! We have daffodils blooming outside - they are every where - except in my yard. I keep forgetting to plant some bulbs in the fall.

Keep getting better!!

The daffodils are so pretty. They always make me think of sunshine. I'm sorry you're still not feeling so good. Hopefully it won't be much longer. Glad to hear the snow is mostly melted. Spring is just around the corner!! Our trees are already getting buds.

Glad to hear you are feeling better. We have daffodils popping up around here too. My niece was over the other day and thought the neighbors were so pretty that she had to have two. Good thing they weren't home when she picked them. LOL.

That crud is going around way over here too. I was sick with it all weekend. I'm on the upswing though and I am glad that you are too. Keep up your fluids ;)
