Almost Back

Today I have finally been able to part ways with the sofa and my pillow for an extended time, at least an hour or so before I have to return.  So I can see being able to spend time here again soon.

Influenza is not fun for anyone but can be life threatening for an insulin dependent diabetic.  When one must continue their insulin as usual but cannot keep any food down, it gets a little dicey.  But the worse is over with only one serious low blood sugar incident.

If one were to pick a week to be quite ill, last week was it.  I can't believe how cold and damp it was with even some snowflakes here and there.   At least I didn't feel like I was missing any lawn or garden work.  We were at near record cold temperatures a few times last week.  Brrrr...

I'll be back soon.  There are ponderings to talk about and book reviews to write.  I purchased a really good cookbook with Amazon credit this month and was so excited when it arrived.  But would you believe I have only been able to briefly peruse it?  Just the thought of food was too much.  ;)

I'll be back.  Soon.

Oh, Brenda! I'm sorry to hear this (I guess I missed your last post.) Hubby & I have had a horrible year health-wise, but have thankfully managed to avoid the flu. Hope you're soon back to normal w/o any lingering effects.

Brenda, So glad to hear you are feeling better and pray it continues. I so understand about having a hard time eating with flu, nothing tastes or sounds good even when you stomach is okay. Take care and God bless, Marsha

So sorry to hear you've been under the weather! It was cold and damp last week for us, too, but today was beautiful, warm and sunny! Wishing you renewed health and strength, and a beautiful Easter weekend! Susan

Your stay cozy until you're well and truly feeling better. Hope that Victoria has kept you company. Personally, I love a cat who will sleep on my cold feet. Hope that your husband is feeling much better as well. We need some warmth! This winter has been quite miserable. (I can't say spring because we have no signs of it yet.)

I'm so glad you are feeling better AND that while you were sick the weather was lousy anyway. As you regain your strength, may Spring really arrive for you. Open windows and sweet breezes, green buds and lovely flowers.
