Checking in ... Take 2 :)

Happy Pentecost Sunday, everyone! I hope you are all having a nice weekend. :) Checking in with you all again - thank you so much for all your kind messages! 

First let me share a few pictures from the past week(s) and then I'll catch you up on the continuing drama that is my life these days lol!


A lovely rainbow after a late afternoon storm. Earlybird spotted it first!


A new rhododendron plant - a Mother's Day gift from my brother.


 Bookworm took this picture of a turkey vulture landing on a neighbor's chimney!


And the little guy above is an eastern gray tree frog - the night before we took this picture our entire neighborhood was serenaded by tree frogs! The "singing" started just after nightfall and was absolutely deafening! (You can hear a sample here.) And yes, as the name implies - they were up in the trees!

Ok, now for my "medical minute." :) The good news is, my pneumonia has cleared up very well. I had my lungs listened to this morning in fact and they were clear. The not so good news is I'm still coughing a lot and Friday night I actually injured myself by coughing so hard! I went in to urgent care this morning and the doctor feels I either bruised or possibly even cracked a rib! Not much you can do for such a thing - just rest, pain relievers and time. And round-the-clock cough suppressants (my med of choice is Delsym) to keep the coughing to a minimum. 

So! Here I am feeling quite out of the loop, like the month of May is passing me by ~ though grateful I am feeling more like myself day by day. I'm not sure when I will be back to regular posting, but I promise it will be just as soon as I can. In the meantime, take care of yourselves and your loved ones ... and I'll see you all again sometime soon!
