Taking it easy

This annoying cold is kicking me in the butt.  I'm coughing and have a headache and I'm tired because I'm not sleeping well.  Ugh.  So, I'm skipping belly dancing this afternoon and taking it easy.  Oh, I've got laundry going and have packed up a box of kitchen stuff but I'm also spending some time curled up on the couch.
Yesterday was a bit of an adventure.  Filming was loud and chaotic.  The dog got loose (someone didn't close the door all the way) and J16 and her friends chased him across the highway to the neighbor's where he went to visit the dog there.  But I did plant my first ever leek seeds yesterday.  So that makes two things planted so far this year.  I also went out wandering about the garden seeing what needs to be done.  Ugh.  I did a pretty poor job of putting the garden to bed last year so I've got lots to do before I can plant.
I would like to get the hickory nuts from my parents planted today while it's still warm out (well, it's 40 and raining).  I pulled them out of the freezer and they're now in the fridge.  Maybe I'll put on my boots and take a walk outside in a bit.  It has stopped raining- at least for the moment.  Tomorrow it is supposed to be more seasonal with a chance of snow.
The children don't have school tomorrow but I've got to go to work.  sigh...  normally I love my job but it has really been seeming like work lately... and I work next weekend so I've got a 6 day stretch ahead of me with no break.


  1. Get to feeling better! How exciting to have leeks planted. I want to try planting them when I have an in-ground garden again.

  2. I hope you feel better soon, I HATE being sick. Thankfully, my kids do have school today since they are making up a snow day, I get more done without having to micro manage them all day LOL


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
