Apologies for the Silence

To all my blogging friends I apologize for my long silence and lack of comments.  Just coming out of a severe allergic drug interaction.  It's been a hard few weeks, but I am making good progress each day.  Since my back is involved, among other things, I'm not sure how much time I can spend at the computer, but I hope to be doing a little more each day.  In the mean time, my love to you all, especially you who communicate regularly with me.

 Here, to brighten your day are a couple of photos I took in our back yard this week (Two days of 80 degree weather.  Just what I needed!)
 




A weed!  Oxalyis  -- or something like that.  It's everywhere  at the moment, spreading 'like a weed!' .  But it has gorgeous bright sunshiny-yellow flowers.

Hope to be back visiting and commenting soon.

I'm sorry to hear of your incapacity. I hope you'll soon be feeling much better. Take care - take it slowly - and take your time.

Being ill or unable to do things we enjoy becomes more frightening as we age [or so I find.] The wish to be creative, [in the garden, in my sewing, in the writing I do for my own satisfaction] is still thriving, but the stamina to accomplish these things, in addition to the home duties which need to be done, is sadly lacking.
I hope that you will be able soon to share your artwork and your visits to the cat sanctuary--and just to be well again.

Take care

You poor thing, Chris. I hope you're on the mend now and that another drug can be found that will help you and not cause such a reaction.

Gorgeous flowers btw!

So sorry to hear you are under the weather. Praying you recover quickly. Thanks for the lovely flowers. They do add some perky-ness to the day.

Wanda said...

So glad you are daily improving. You've been in my thoughts and prayers.

Your back yard is lovely, and I think I would like to visit the Ranch in your L. post above.
