OOoops I Went MIA .... By Accident! 
23rd-Sep-2014 10:04 am
Only I could manage that!

I suddenly realised that the days are flying past and I haven't really been around - just dipping in and out occasionally.  One of the side-effects oof this "illness I don't actually have!!" is that I find it hard to concentrate and focus on anything at all some days.  The aches and poor sleeping making that worse, I know, but it is doubly frustrating.

No work today, which means that the bank will be sad, but I am determined to both rest and do some catching up ... and (if I feel motivated) do a bit more fence painting.

When I arrived at M&D's it was to be greeted by Jiffy (as ever), to show me his new hair-cut.  Jackie comes and collects him every 2 months, and off he goes for his beauty treatment ... more than I ver get!

The weekend as ever was hectic, which doesn't help the rest of my week, as it does sap my "coping" mechanism.  But it's good to be able to help mum & dad to cope with life.  Although I have the garden looking "OK" it isn't as great as when Mum used to do it.  She was very into small plants - whereas I am happy if I can keep most of the weeds away!  Anyway here are is a quick look as to what it was looking like this weekend .... complete with guardian angel, of course -

And, here are a few close ups of the flowers ... nothing to do with my care, they just managed to survive me!

I think the garden is looking beautiful, you're doing a great job with it.

Thank you - hard work, but I'm glad I got motivated this year.

My two cents.

I think you're tired and stressed, both of which can make you physically unwell... hope you could relax a bit today

The garden looks lovely

I do know it ... and have only worked a half week so far, and have ended up doing nothing much the rest of the time. But as it's only been a couple of days my muscles still hurt!

And (of course) I never can escape the stress of being on the other end of a phone!!


I have a 4 legged helper in the garden ... I think that's why it looks OK!

The yard and flowers are lovely. You parents are blessed to have you.

Jiffy looks dapper as always.

*hugs* I wish you could get some rest more often but glad you are taking time now and again. You must do that because you REALLY count too!

I'm not too good at keeping in touch lately but that does not mean I don't think and pray for my friends (that includes you) daily.

*hugs* and love,

Thank you - Jiffy is as much a sweetheart as ever.

Your love & support means more than you can possibly know Kathleen ... *hugs* you tight, and thanks God for your friendship.

Pretty Garden! Hope you'll feel better soon - and can rest better again.

Thank you - it's hard work to garden, but nice to look back on the results.
