Still here...

There's been a bit of real life taking charge and a sudden bout of not feeling good for me around these parts.  I've tried not to argue with life and it's wanting me to slow down and breathe.  But I will admit that I don't like it when life slows me down.  There's just so much to do.

So during this time of breathing, I've only been able to get out in the yard once it turns shady in the evening.  DARN the medicine that says you can not be in direct sunlight.  Not a fan of that.  But I have loved seeing my new blooming flowers that have started to show themselves the past week.  That part I can't complain about.  When the day starts to quiet down and readies itself for nighttime, there is something soothing about sitting on the porch or in the back yard and just watching things happen.  It's settling, peaceful and perfect.

Hopefully things will get back to a bit of normal sometime this weekend around here.
There's just so much I have to accomplish!

Hope your weekend goes well!


  1. I'm sorry to hear you are not so good at the moment and hope you are feeling much more yourself very soon. It is frustrating when you want to achieve and you can't. Take the enforced breather to enjoy things you don't normally have time for.
    Take care and lots of love to you,
    Anne xx
    P.S. Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog about my travels. I really appreciate the time you've taken to comment.

  2. Oh dear, Kar. I'm sorry you're not feeling well. I hope by the time the weekend is over that you will be back to your ol' chipper self. Big huts!


  3. Oh, I hope you feel better really soon, Kar. I knew you were awfully quiet, but I thought you must be deeply intrenched in yarn. But, while you're indoors recuperating, you have such a lovely view to help you along the way.

    Have a great weekend. :-)

  4. Listen to what your body and mind is telling you. Your flowers are beautiful, what's that saying..."Stop and smell the roses". I hope you feel better soon.

  5. Your flowers are beautiful, so it's good that you are slowing down and taking time to enjoy them. It's also good that you are listening to your body... I hope you are feeling much better very soon.

  6. I hope you're feeling better soon! Your flowers are lovely.
