Was I thrown for a loop last week. I went to my daughter's ball hockey tournament feeling out of sorts. Achy, sinuses but I reckoned after I was up and running things would get better. No. They did not. I left her with another mum and took myself to bed. But I worsened as the afternoon wore on and ended up having my mother take me to the doctor as I kept feeling like I would pass out. Good thing. I had a temperature of 102. It has taken me about 6 or 7 days to get back to feeling semi normal. But enough about me, how are you? I have been reading my bloglines like there's no tomorrow. Bloglines and I get along like a house on fire! I just go online, see who has a new post and Bob's your uncle! Love it.

But is it normal to have more than 100 blogs to read? I am addicted to the beauty. Thank you all for making my day, everyday. How lucky are we to have a window to look through whenever the feeling strikes us? To peek into other homes, other countries, other worlds?

I am trying to get the garden into shape. It is going ever so slow. We have had rainy days and more in the forecast. I am so very jealous of those that have lilacs on their kitchen tables when we just have forsythias blooming.

And thank you all so much for the well wishes for my little, handsome man! He is fitting in quite nicely.

Thanks for visiting, and Keep Calm and Carry On!

Have a wonderful weekend!

P.S. Who figured I would go back and buy the wellies?

I have been blogging for almost two years and still haven't tried bloglines...I need to investigate! As if I don't stay on enough I'm new at yours and really like it here!!

Those are simply the nicest wellies I have ever seen. If you are going to waer a pair it might as well be a pair as pretty as those. Glad you're feeling better. It is a bit addictive this blogging lark.

Hope you continue to improve.
I love bloglines but it is easy to add new blogs that it just feeds the addicition....226 sshh just whisper it!

Glad you are feeling better. I had something similar with fever etc a few weeks ago. It sure takes long to get over it. Love all your pretty pics. You have a great blog here.

My goodness! You really had a go of it. I'm so glad that you are feeling better.

I, too, am enjoying Bloglines, which reminds me that I must add you to mine pronto. I landed here the old-fashioned way. So yesterday!

Now, my dear heart, one must delight in the forsythias of today knowing that the lilacs of tomorrow are on their way. I love my forsythias...adore them...cut them for arrangements...prune them because they're getting terribly unruly, and will be very sad when they fade.
