My God Flowers and a my Hypertufa House
First the sunflowers...........I love these flowers. Every year at our Farmers' Market , people swarm to this guy's stand. You see people all over town carrying bundles. Yesterday, I was driving home from getting my dogs' tested for the illness I had (campylobactor, same thing as K. Bug had)
AND my car drove by the market. I thought only IF I can find a close spot. Still so little energy......and it was my first day out in a week other than the doctors. So no spot that I could see. SO, I decided to go down the alley and just see if I could find a place. Would you believe I found one, the only one, behind the flower stand ,with only the sidewalk between us. SCORE. SO these are God's flowers, because he knew I need some "happy" flowers yesterday and because we have such beauty in this world we live in.
Now the little house........yesterday I saw that there was an Art/Wine Festival at the Bryn Du Mansion that is about a mile from me. It was a miserable hot, humid rainy day yesterday so I decided to attempt going today. I went, parked and walked. I didn't get too far and felt like maybe this hadn't been a good idea. I got a lemon shake and headed for home. I didn't see half of what was there but I found my hyperfufa artist. Same houses that I had seen at the garden center.....1/3 the price. I bought one of the smallest ones in hopes to make a fairy garden. Isn't it cute. It was so hard to decide. The artrist lives like 10 miles away so just in case I WANT another one. Yes, not a need.
Anyway, I love the house and don't even feel guilty.
So, the week-end wasn't a wash. I feel better, just working on the strength thing now. It has been an emotional week-end. But things will get better. Due to the one terrible side effect of this illness (temporary paralysis included a ventilater - 15% chance) my daughter and her little ones from Colorado have cancelled their trip here. We are very sad but not willing to take that chance. Hubby and I may go there next month. He hasn't met his new grandson yet and he is 6 months old.
Well, my dear friends, I hope you have had a fun and restful week-end. ((((HUGS))))
