Unexpected R&R

I had big plans for the last several days.  I had blog posts to post, friends to see, a job to do, and sewing to begin, not to mention cooking and gardening and taking time to be with friends!  But sometimes life doesn’t go the way we plan it.

And so it was this time.

It seems I contracted some crazy flu virus, and I can’t remember the last time I felt so bad (I actually asked hubby to put me out of my misery, but for some reason he wouldn’t comply)  🙂

And so….I have spent the last several days doing something I almost never do.


And because I have been trying to put a positive spin on things, I tried to look at being sick as a kind of unexpected R&R which I never would have taken otherwise , and tried to make the most of my time of rest.  (This was before, and after, the day I asked hubby to do away with me, I’m afraid in the height of things I was a bit beyond positivity.)

I have big things happening in my life right now.  I’m building a new business, getting ready for a new school year, working on a new website (!) and some exciting changes for the blog, too.  But to make it all happen, I need to take a little blogging break.  I wish I could say I had lots of great guests lined up to post here in the meantime, or that I had filed away several weeks worth of posts like I did last time I was on vacation (you never knew I was gone, did you?), but this time it’s going to be a complete break.  Well…except for maybe once in a while when I might pop in with a photo or two…. (or if you’re still curious about what’s happening in the garden I’ll still be posting on the Facebook page and would love for some of you to chime in too!)

I hope you all have a wonderful August!
