Still battling flu/cough -but the days have been gorgeous!

Thursday, March 12, 2009

I'm still battling with the flu and icky cough that just won't go away; DAG-NAB-IT!!

On the bright side the days here in NorCal/Sacto have been gorgeous! Delicious! Fantastically beautiful!!! The wildflowers are really starting to pop. I just love spring time in the valley soooooooooo much!!

My little 1991 toyota-bug is starting to show her age (and the fact that I've been hard on her). I apparently don't know my own strength, and the drivers side "handle bar connecty-thing" on the door busted up when I shut the door last week. So Tuesday dad & I went in search of toyota parts to fix her up with, and were introduced to the weird but kind of funky cool auto-dismantling/wrecking subculture here in SacTown. Utimately, we found the part we needed at a Toyota dismantler on Sunrise Boulevard for only $10! We felt like we had hit the mother load. However, dad and I spent the rest of the day trying to fix the door, but we did it!!! That afternoon, we took her in to the mechanic to fix leaky power steering situation that I've let get out of hand. I'm feeling terrible about the abuse, and of course worried about the bottom line cost for this repair, but that's how it goes.

On the SparkFront, I must report a very exciting development! One of my new SparkFriends is coming up to Sacramento next week and we are going to connect!!! How cool is that???!!!

Well, keep that SparkMail coming. The encouragement is awesome!

Love Yah!

Getting over flu & lost 4 pounds :-)

Monday, March 09, 2009

Well! Getting over the flu has been harder than nursing my knee & lower back into normalcy. Fever/chills finally broke Friday and my congestion finally started letting up on Saturday. I'm still coughing and taking decongestants, but I can breath now! (It's funny how you don't think about breathing, until it becomes a problem ...)

I was actually breathing/feeling good enough to make it out to the California native plant demo-garden Sunday morning. Yeah!! Sunday was a beautiful day here in Sacramento, and especially at the Sacramento Historic City Cemetery at 10th & Broadway. The flowers at the demo-garden are starting to bud out, especially the wild lilacs (Ceanothos species).

Well, I'm feeling good enough to get my bootie to the gym today and get back on track w/some exercise. Got on the scale this morning and happy to report that I've lost another 4-pounds! However, I think this was mostly from being sick. Hmmm, I guess getting sick has a positive aspect to it.

Thanks again for all the encouragement you've sent.

    Being sick is a hard way to lose weight. I'm glad you are feeling better.

Thanks for all the great support! I physically feel terrible, but my spirits were definitely lifted by my Spark Friends!

Thanks so much.



Injury & the flu ... can I have some cheese w/my whine?

Wednesday, March 04, 2009

Well, sports fans. I was out and about Sunday in the rain running errands and had a big fall which has injured my left knee and lower back. Got up Monday w/flu symptoms (aches, sniffles, fever ... yuk). So am currently nursing myself back to health w/bedrest, fluids, decongestants, and chicken soup.

    I'm so sorry you don't feel well. I will pray you get better fast. I know what it feels like to be down and out. You will heal your injury faster if you can move it even just slightly. Get better soon.

    Plenty of chicken soup for starters. And don't stay down too long, you will get stiff and sore after that nasty fall...
Get well soon..

Rainy Day Sunday #2

Sunday, March 01, 2009

UH OH! 4:30 am and it's raining. Hubby is up and at 'em. I could not get my chunky bum out of the bed with him. So I hit the snooze button until 6am, finally got up and observed that it was still raining. Hmmm, looks like I'll not be doing volunteer work at the Native Plant Demo-Garden today; I guess I can go to the gym instead. Alright lets get going.

    I would love it if you would send the rain to the Panhandle of Texas. emoticon
It sounds like you like working in a garden. I can never get anything to grow. I'm going to try one more time.

Don't forget to log your exercise and keep up the good work!

    Checked out our local Native Plant Demo Garden. Surprise. Is that you that I need to contact to talk about volunteering?

Am seriously considering it. But will have to get back to you on that, AFTER THE RAINS.
