Where in the world have I been?

Dead plant in pots

I realized it’s been a coon’s age (one of my grandma’s phrases) since I sat down to write anything at all for my poor, neglected blog and all of my faithful readers.  Sorry about that.  Even though I’ve not been taking the time to post here, I’ve still been writing.  I’m taking part in Camp NaNo again this month and I’m pleased to say I’m doing a pretty good job…a little over 12,000 words written (not counting whatever I may churn out tonight).  I had every intent of writing something new, but when I sat down that first day, my fingers had other plans…so still working on the same story just at  a different stage in his life.  I know, I know…I’m such a rebel!

I do have something positive to report!  After seeing the pulmonologist and taking a ton of meds, I’m finally feeling better…not great….not 100%…but oh so much better than I felt a month ago.  I still get on these coughing jags in the evenings and at night or if I’m outside in the cold….thank goodness mother nature is finally giving me a break in that department.  I’m back at work, just this past week.  Sometimes it’s a struggle, but I’ve got a pretty compassionate boss, he’s working with me to make sure I continue recovering.  I love the folks I work with…and really did miss seeing them on a daily basis.  Sounds like a pretty good gig, huh?

I’m so happy that spring is finally here.  I have Tuesday off work and I’m hoping the weather will cooperate so I can get outside and plant some lettuce and radishes…I need to stop and buy some pansies to plant too…maybe I can do that after work tomorrow, if I’m not just worn out.  I haven’t decided how much I’m going to plant this year..definitely a couple of tomato plants, but I may end up buying most of my produce at the farmers’ market this year.  We’ll see…

How about you?  Got any gardening plans?  Getting outside to allow that sweet spring breeze to kiss your face?

  1. I’ve wondered about your recovery. Glad to read this and find you doing better!

  2. So very glad to hear you are starting to feel better! Hope the progress continues. Have missed seeing you around WP! 🙂

  3. Another NaNo? I think you’re addicted! 🙂 SO HAPPY to hear you’re feeling better. We went for a walk this evening, then pulled a few weeds while looking over the garden area and discussing mulch.

    • Thanks, Patti…yeah, it seems the only time I get a lot of writing done is when I’m doing NaNo…I need to develop that same discipline in non-NaNo months.

  4. So glad to hear you are feeling better! Be careful you don’t overdo it, sounds like you have pretty busy schedule. Another NaNo? Wow! A coon’s age – oh yeah, that was a phrase in our family, too.

    • Coon’s age, don’t know how that popped into my head, but that’s the way it happens sometimes. Yeah, I told my boss today that I’d kind of overdone it the last couple of days….only worked six hours today. I think, even as nice a guy as he is, he doesn’t completely understand how sick I was.
