Glorious Days to be Sick


I staggered out to the barn this morning after being sick with a miserable flu for the past six days. The minute the horses saw me, they came racing across the pasture. It did my heart good. I’m still not ready to leap into blogging - give me a couple more days. But I did want to tell you all that I miss you and look forward to visiting you as soon as I can focus on a computer screen. This has been a whopper!

I missed so many days of gorgeous weather. The irises are in full bloom. Peonies are ready to dazzle next. Silk is moping. It’s always amazing to me how fresh and remarkable the world looks after emerging from a darkened bedroom. I’m still coughing and wobbling but it sure felt good to get some horsey kisses.

Oh...I am so sorry you are sick. Maybe not fully recovered from your illness of a few months ago, or at least your immune system is still struggling.
Maybe check for Lyme...?
No worries about blogging--take all the time you need. Your friends stand by. Use them.

Oh Victoria, I'm so sorry to hear you have been under the weather. We've had some really nice days for a change, maybe you'd feel better bundled up on the patio for a while. Hope you are on the mend and feel your old self soon.

Argh -- the flu! We've both just gotten over bronchitis and sinus infections here. In May!

Well, I am glad you are feeling a bit better. You've been really stressed the past month or so.

Great photo of the girls!

It is just so awful to be sick in the spring -- this is the time of year when we are all anxious to get outside, and everything changes so quickly with the blooming and trees filling out. Hope you are feeling better....

So sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well. Six day is a long time to be that under the weather...take the time to heal and rest and don't rush back into things! We're thinking of you!
