Eh. Here's a photo.

Open to rain

I returned from Southern State with a cough that has gradually gotten worse, and which includes an excruciating headache, aches and pains, a sore throat, fever and chills, and a head cold. Yes, I seem to have a bit of everything. It’s that whole Southern hospitality thing, I guess. They didn’t want me to go home without a whole host of symptoms. Generous people, they are.

Unfortunately, when I get a cough, I get a really bad cough -- a trait I’ve inherited from my mother and passed onto my daughter. I’ve been coughing so hard that I vomit.

It’s not all bad. My daughter has gotten sick too and so we’ve been bonding over cups of hot tea. (Have I mentioned that my daughter decided that life in Big City Like No Other was not for her? She’s back at home and will be going to grad school in the fall.)

I don’t have the energy to write any kind of blog post so instead I am going to just stick up more photos from last week’s trip. The blossoms were taken in Southern State of Peachtrees and Red Soil, of course. Nothing is blooming yet here, although the snow has melted so we have hope that spring will be coming at some point ….

Oh, feel better. I'm the same way with coughs, they hit me hard.

The title made me chuckle!

Take good care of yourselves! #1 Son is still in that City, but who knows how long he will last...

I'm just getting over my cold luckily, just wish I could've avoided being sick over spring break altogether though. Feel better. What has been making me smile is seeing all the moss cropping up. Get well soon :)

Yay about Daughter being home! I wish her the best of luck with grad school and I bet you're thrilled to have her again.

Good luck recuperating.

Fire Ant: The city is a warmer microclimate. The snowdrops at my house aren't blooming yet.
