Ellie and I got home from our walk this morning and the weather was so lovely I just had to take the time to get out in the yard and work.
I needed something for them to climb since the boards on the fence are simply to big for them to wrap around. I stopped by our Ace and picked up six 1/4" dowel rods and made two little tepee-type structures.
And, speaking of the girls, everyone is starting to feel better. Okay, so Lil never actually felt sick minus those allergy symptoms, but still. Ellie was still rough yesterday but is finally on the upswing today. She and I made our trek to CW and did our walk which made both of us happy.
Brien is feeling better so the nexium is doing its thing. Yay! Me? I'm feeling rundown. I'm fairly certain I have the virus the girls had on top of their strep. I have a headache, runny nose with post nasal drip and some soreness and swelling of the throat. No fever and no gunky looking tonsils so I'm fairly certain it's NOT strep. But, I'm tired. I couldn't run for more than two blocks today so I just stopped. There's no point in pushing it if I don't feel 100%. I think the virus combined with not having a full night's sleep in close to a week has done it too. I've been up with either one or the other of the girls every night since last Thursday. I'm beat.
Here's to a good night's sleep tonight!
1. Out enjoying my yard and gardens.
2. I made the most amazing smelling and looking blackberry cobbler today. We'll do the taste-test after dinner tonight and if it's as divine as I think it's going to be, I'll post tomorrow.
4. Everyone feeling better. Whew!
5. The sounds of the girls all playing outside and laughing and having fun. I love that!
