9 DAYS......

I can't hardly believe it has been 9 days since I posted last. what have I been doing....
1. working - 9-10 hour days (not every day, but many) cleaning, watering, packing in boxes and hauling to carts, geraniums for the stores that this greenhouse supplies.

2. Took a day to drive to Cedar Rapids in order to finalize flowers and cake for wedding.


Oh my, this sidelined me big time!!! Down,,,,,, chilling in the house,,,,,, can't go out...... I finally had to go get an antibiotic. I don't know if it was the concentration of flowers in the greenhouse or just that everything is blooming all-at-once outside, but I haven't been this sick since a bad case of pine pollen in Florida, 2007.
Last night was the first time I slept in 3 days. I get too clogged up laying down, so it has been sitting up in a chair, waking up every hour choking.... to death!!!!
I do think today will be better. I have had 3 days of drugs and hopefully with staying down today, I will be able to go back to work tomorrow. I LOVE MY JOB, hopefully I will get to finish the season....

A beautiful day in store for us. 65, sunny, little breeze..... absolutely beautiful...... I will be spending it inside, trying to get over this curse called sinus infection.

So while I was outside, opening up my lungs from waking up with the croup this morning,
I grabbed my camera and took a few yard pics.
I love the Spring flowers that are blooming right now
(well, I love them from a distance right now!)


  1. I know what you mean ! As soon as you stop counting time, it disappears !! Have a lovely week

  2. glad you're feeling better. your photos are beautiful! thanks for sharing them.

  3. The flowers are beautiful. Glad your feeling better and I pray you continue on this road to recovery.

  4. so happy you are feeling better and back to
    showing us lovely photos!

  5. I think everyone is struggling with the pollen this spring. It's especially bad here because everything is blooming at once & it's really dry. Hope you feel better. Jan

  6. Thanks so much all of you Elise, Kevin, Debby, Lea and Jan for all the well wishes!!! I do think I am on the mend. I even felt like cleaning the house today.... oh wait,,, maybe that means I am REALLY SICK!!!

  7. Hope that you are feeling so much better after the antibiotics kicked in. Those flowers are beautiful. Have a great week and take it easy. :) Tammy

  8. Hope you are feeling much better, it is hard to keep up with everything. BLAH!!! Beautiful pics.

  9. Oh my goodness! Think about getting a Neti Pot - I've not actually tried it yet, but everyone is singing it's praises! Get well quickly and take care of yourself..we miss you!

  10. the whole sinus thing is a nightmare isn't it ? I can sympathise - the pain is just awful. HAPPY MAY

  11. p.s. I find that the ONLY thing that really works, that my GP always magged me about and I tok ages to come round to his way of thinking, is to get Menthol Cyrstals (from the chemist, in a tiny white 5g pot) and sprinkle them (they are VERY strong) over a pot of boiling water and inhale with a towel over my head. It's the only thing that has ever worked - but the key thing is to keep at at - every time you start to feel bunged up, have another 10 minutes of steam. And don't go outside for 30 mins after you've done it as the inside of your nose would be sensitive. And you just have to keep at it - for several days after symptoms improve, and at least 3 times a day. Really hope you find this helpful.
