Lately, it's been so crazy around my house and with me personally. I've been in and out reading posts and sending replies but haven't had the chance to do much of anything else it seems!! I finally slowed down some to take pictures to share with you about how Spring is showing up here at the home place.
The flowers are supposed to be fragrant, but the scent is so subtle that you have to stick your nose right into them. I am hoping that as there are more blossoms, the scent will be more noticeable. I am so pleased with how they are turning out.
While you enjoy these beautiful pictures, which by the way, I was taking while it was pretty darn windy outside so I am amazed that any of my photos turned out. :). Anyway, while you enjoy the photos, I'll ramble on a bit about why I've been missing in action for a while. Or you can ignore the rambling and just enjoy the photos. You're here and that all that really matters in my book. :)
I have mentioned before that I suffer from fibromyalgia; best described as flu-like symptoms, without the fever, or feeling like I've been run over by a steam roller on a daily basis. It's not life threatening but it sure is life debilitating. And then I suffer from chronic fatigue, too. Some days, I don't get much of anything accomplished because of the pain and, lately, I have been battling insomnia; one of the side effects of this disorder. Some nights I get only four or five hours of sleep...not good either. This is just an FYI. I am definitely not looking for sympathy as I know there are many of you out there, or know of someone, who suffer from much worse health issues than I do!
My house suffers terribly because of it but I had to get some major housecleaning done recently as my daughter was having a jewelry party and her home is not big enough for large groups of people, so I always allow her to have events like these, even birthday parties and family gatherings, in our home. What normally takes one person a day or so to do a good cleaning, took me about a week!
She even dressed herself up with all the pieces that seemed to be her favorites. I told you that girl loved her some bling. She's very good about knowing when things don't belong to her and doesn't whine or cry about keeping things that need to be given back. She sure had some fun though.
Okay, where was I? Oh yes, why I've been missing in action. Anyway, I had to take it easy for a day or so to recover from all the work I did to get the house ready. My house is clean... for now. And the party was alot of fun.
Then there was my monthly doctor's appointment and then shopping all in the big city, which takes a good chunk out of my day. Then the following day, I had the joy of watching my grandbabies. Unfortunately, events like these take their toll on me and I have to rest up and get basically nothing accomplished. :/ Shopping I can "almost" do without but the grandbabies...never!!
It's A Very Cherry World. I got my package from Erica, my swap partner, the other day and I am beyond ecstatic with what she sent me. Thank you, Erica! Obviously, I'm a bit behind with my project but I'll share that with you and all the wonderful little pretties that Erica sent me.
I've also been working on a new business venture that is keeping me fairly busy as I learn about it and getting things off the ground floor. I am excited about being able to do this and will be sharing that with you next week.
I've also got some Spring dresses to make that I promised my granddaughters. And then there's the fabric-covered notebooks that I need to get finished for my giveaway! Oh, and I guess I'd better get busy and change my banner...Winter is officially over now, isn't it? Can you say B.U.S.Y.??? Whew!!
So, that's what's been going on in my little world as I enjoy this beautiful Spring weather and all that it brings. What's going on in your world these days?
Take a deep breath and smell the freshness that Spring brings~
