Lazy Sunday


Well, I think I'm getting over this bug!
Thanks for all your notes and get well wishes!  That cold
turned into a sore throat, cough and fever!  Ugh.
I feel like this afternoon I may have turned a corner
and even walked around in the yard with my camera.
That little walk wore me out...haha...but I got a few
pictures of what is going on out there...




Looks like I'll be picking a zucchini or two in about a week!
Hope I catch them before they are the size of the Goodyear Blimp! 

The weather is beautiful today!
Have you had a good weekend?

    Glad you're beginning to mend. Summer colds are crummy. I am still thinking about that pretty bottle of wine. Yum.

  4. Glad you are ok, Betsy. These things are very debilitating and it takes time to fully recover.
    Nice selection of photos ~ the cats look very alert don't they? Like the flip flops very much and those cute little feet . . lol

  5. Well I was sure hoping you were going to pull through! Surprised me to see you pop up so sick. I wondered why you were "lying low" on the radar screen. Keep improving! We need that Sunshine!

  11. I am glad you feel better!! All the pictures are very summerish and aw so pretty! A very powerful and excellent natural remedy for cough is a tea from Malva mauritiana. This plant has a beautiful blue flowers, you pour boiling water over them let sit for 15 minutes and you drink it 3x a day. In two days your cough is gone without any medication needed. I give it to Steve too, we call it 'the blue tea'. And it tastes delicious :-)

  13. A nice little walk about
    As you fight the germs out
    Same thing was had around here
    Thankfully my ocd has avoided it coming near
    So much easier when living alone
    To avoid germs at the tone lol

  14. Love your photos! So crisp and summery! Your veggies and flowers are looking good! Glad you're feeling better. I've just been feeling ho hum, lately. It's the heat. Definitely the heat! 90's into the 100's at times. Needless to say, our weekend was spent in the water.

    1. Oh yes...one of the reasons I'm not a summer fan...the heat can make you so lethargic! I guess that's why I stay in the A/C most of the time and buzz around my house getting things done. haha. Plus, heat and sweat make me cranky. lol....

      My garden is doing well! I'm so thankful! Some years it's a total bust...like last year! haha.

    2. HaHa! Heat and sweat makes me cranky, too!

    1. Isn't that the truth? I never stayed in bed....we don't get days off! And the one time I laid on the couch to take a nap, the phone rang. lol...

  16. Glad to hear you are on the mend. Your yard looks beautiful. This time of year looks beautiful there. The Ohio visitors bureau should pay you for all the pretty pictures you show. Be well!

  17. Glad to hear you are feeling better. I love that top photo on the right, looks like the flower is welcoming you to come have a sniff (doesn't it look like little fingers). LOL Just my crazy way of seeing the world. Have a great week.

    2. I know what you mean. When our family came back in June I had to do the same thing with my "Work Room"! I eventually got most of the extra papers, cards, memorabilia down to two large tote containers that I put down in the basement until I have more time to go through and throw out.
