Today

I have the flu and it's been pouring rain for two days. On the bright side, daffodils are starting to bloom. I saw three glorious, yellow blossoms yesterday. The end is in sight! Soon I will have plenty to blog about.

I had a fever the whole day on Thursday. It broke last night. Now I'm just coughing up my lungs and, if I'm not careful, my stomach contents.

Mouse hunter is sleeping next to me right now and keeps farting. They smell terrible. Silent but deadly.

I read Goat Song and The Dirty Life last week and loved them both. If you are a homesteader, love goats, cheese making or the pastoral life, you must read Goat Song. The Dirty Life is geared towards women readers. If you love farming and an intriguing love story, read it. I read it in two days.

Sounds awful - glad you are on the mend and that the daffodils are cheering you

Michele,

Hope you feel better soon! Cats can be trouble, the past two nights grumpy has been bad in the master bedroom closet. Hope you can enjoy the daffodils and hellebores this weekend. I have bought 4 new hellebores already this year, out of control.

Hope you're feeling better...my husband had the flu last week too - no fun. Sounds like you've got cheery daffodils and lots of good books to keep you company until you're feeling back up to speed.

Take care and get well soon. Isn't it nice to have the blog if we are sick? Thanks for picking my blog on Skywatch.

Get Well Soon! A friend of mine writes a column in his local newspaper and his topic was “A skunk in a kitten suit”. It was funny and I learned of kitten gas. Guess I was lucky as my girls never had this gassy issue. Now the hubby, well, that’s another story….
