This and That

September 26, 2008 at 9:13 am 14 comments

It started day before yesterday.  That little tickle in your throat you can’t get rid off.  The weird cough that comes out of nowhere.  Yesterday a light, annoying headache joined the list.  Today I have a full blown, gushing, cold.  Since I’m not sick very often, I’m sure I’m sicker than anyone has ever been.  If Pap loved me at all, he’d have a squad parked right outside, ready to resessitate (I know that’s spelled wrong, but I’m much to weak to correct it) me once I’ve started gagging on my own snot. 

Despite my  declining health, I spent some time in the yard today, attempting to tidy things up before it gets cold or covered with leaves.  You might remember me telling you that my backyard was a parking lot in April? We planted grass seed and from a distance it looks like we have a lawn.  Have you ever noticed that the bag of grass seed says “guaranteed to contain less than 5% weed”, or something like that.  Well the 5% weed is the only thing that managed to root in my clay.  I won’t be sad to see snow.

    Our lawn is all moss now after the summer we have had, at least it doesn’t take much cutting!

    Oh, and I would live in a forest and take occassional, very occasional, visits to the other places – well, maybe not the desert. I like mountains and trees and snow.

    Feel batter soon Kat. I hate that tickle. Especially when it wakes me up in the middle of the night!

    Oh no! Don’t tell me it’s starting! I hate cold season. With elementary age kids, I dread the rounds of shared germs.

    I hope you feel better soon, Kat! Wanna a weird tip for combatting that tickle? Someone told me this trick last year and it actually worked for my daugther… slather a generous amount of vicks vapo-rub on the soles of your feet and put on socks before going to bed. Weird, I know. But hey, anything’s worth a good night’s sleep!

    I’m glad to see you haven’t lost your sense of humor.

    Oh poor Kat. Be better soon and just take it easy till you are.

    hope you feel better soon….

    this is the nicest time of year for us…although I do wish we had trees with leaves that change color and all that autumn stuff….

    Awww hon, hope you feel better soon. Get lots of rest, drink fluids, and let someone else do the gardening for you until you’re back on your feet.

  • 12. smielymamaT  |  September 29, 2008 at 6:10 am

    OH NO! I had that cold all last week. So that’s where it went…

    I have a cousin who says there’s nothing wrong with good weed…

    har har.

    Nice to catch up with your posts again, hope you feel better soon.

    I don’t know if I should be embarrassed to admit this or not…the parapet in front of our home is the only one with weeds growing merrily amongst the grass, all the other neighbours have lovely grass. I’ve heard that dandelion is good though, makes a good coffee-like brew 🙂

    Feel better soon, Kat.

    feel better soon Kat!!!! AT least when it snnows all of our yards will look the same!!!!! Take care girlfriend!

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
