Wow, there is a world out there

I'm blinking my eyes and looking out at sunshine (which has been a rare sight this spring). I think I'm beginning to feel human again. A cough remains and even more fatigue than usual (Steph tells me that hangs on for awhile) but I'm off the sofa. The flowers on the deck actually got some much needed attention early this morning.

After not sleeping well for awhile with the coughing waking me up, I pulled out the Big Guns... Nyquil! Christopher had some in the medicine cabinet, left over from a bad cold over the winter. I have to be careful with Nyquil and not take it more than two or three nights but it certainly helped this time. I think some sunshine will be a good thing, too.

I was very happy to have a few cans of Progresso soup put back in case one of us was sick. Even canned chicken and noodle soup is good when one isn't feeling well. :)

I have a couple pantry posts running through my head... it has been very good having to eat out of the pantry and the freezer as it reminds me of suggestions to write about.

There are also pictures to be taken of the garden~ Slowly but surely normal is returning.

By the way, I think this is the first time I've gone through a weekend without losing readers from the "Follower"s list. I must have not written anything in Sunday Afternoon Tea to annoy anyone this week. :)

You need to ask your dr for some of that cough syrup with codine- I take it in the fall, nothing quiets my cough but that does and I can sleep.

Glad you're feeling better, ma'am, and don't you worry about your follower list. You write whatever you feel like writing about!

Wonderful to learn that you are off the sofa! You're making me laugh that sweet Brenda would ever say something to offend anyone. My followers come and go and I pay them no mind really as I dare not add them for fear Blogger will start acting up again. I'm certainly grateful for them, but I think of them as "a great cloud of witnesses." Ha! And not so many in number either.

I have been reading your blog for a while now. I really enjoy what you have to share. And I am just trying to figure out what you write that would make people upset and not want to read your blog. I find it very interesting and helpful. I like that you are honest and a very caring, considerate person. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.

Glad you're feeling better. Concerning your losing followers.... I don't have a blog myself, so my perspective might be different. I would think that perhaps some of your followers might feel convicted about spending so much time online that they neglect their family. This might lead them to make these changes.... you never know. Unless they also leave ugly comments, I guess. And in that case, if that's their spirit, I say "good riddance"!
