Can we have some cheese with this whine?

My throat hurts... my head hurts... my fingernails hurt.  Remind me to start taking that handcleaner germ killer stuff with me all the time and using it every five minutes.  I could pull a Howard Hughes and get germophobic after such a winter and spring.  I hear I am not alone and others who were sick this winter are once again miserable.  Oh, well...

I have my pillow all propped on the living room sofa and watching the PBS Create Channel all day.  I am fine until The Victory Garden reminds me my husband is building the last of the raised beds for this year... in the heat... bringing up soil from the dry creek bed... in the heat... and compost from the compost pile... in the heat.  Did I mention it is hot?

I did make it to the garden yesterday evening to hoe all the new weeds and to try to remove weeds from the front area of the fence.  My "little bit at a time" gardening.  The guys are encouraging "little bit at a time" laundry.  :)

As I walk from the sofa to the kitchen, the aroma of peonies in their vase is beautiful (even with my stuffy nose).  Peonies are one of my favorite flowers, they remind me of lilacs as one must embrace them while they bloom because they tend to be gone before we know it.

Victoria continues to heal nicely, she definitely has her appetite back.  As for the baby watch... inducement set for Thursday.  I keep telling Stephanie this waiting is just exhausting me.  She is too far away to throw anything (although she could pay her brother).

Back to my pillow...

We are having the heat today, too. Just nasty. Hope that it breaks a little, a titch, just ten degrees would be great.

And you're feeling poorly, too. I actually do have that foamy stuff in my purse and some spray stuff as well and so should you. I'm certifiably OCD where germs are concerned. But I don't have as good a reason to be as you do. You must take care of yourself since these things rebound on you so often.

So Thursday it will be for the new baby unless it's today or tomorrow. Well that is good to know. Let's see May 25 is good, May 26 good, May 27 is nice. Yup, all sound good. Still praying.

Oh, Brenda, I am sorry to hear you are feeling so bad! I hope you are better soon, and perhaps good news about a baby will help your recovery!

It is getting hot here too! Today we are getting out early to beat the heat!

Praying that the baby will come without inducement...

Brenda dear,

It is about time to SHAKE the cooties out of your tired body.

Good luck and get well.

Love,

Sharon

Can't wait to hear baby news!!! Will be praying for Stephanie and a safe delivery. Maybe the baby will be exactly a month younger than Laura (if she comes on the 27th).

Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Nothing worse than having a cold or flu when it is hot.
So sorry.
