On the mend
Well my yucky cold is feeling quite a bit better today thanks in part to this lovely tea and some wonderful Oatmeal Raisin cookies that my lovely neighbor Annette made.
Yesterday wasn't a complete wash out, I did some more sewing and knitting, checked on my grapes in the garden, some are sweet but most a still sour, now it is a race against time to see what will come first, frosty weather or ripened grapes. It was 36 degrees here yesterday morning when we woke up so it is definitely getting colder.My lovely Birthday Orchid is blooming once again, I received this orchid a couple of years ago from my neighbor Annette,(don't I have the best neighbor)it only blooms once a year right around my Birthday, for the rest of the year it doesn't do much of anything, but around my Birthday it just springs to life and the blossoms usually lasts for about a couple of months or so, it was, and is one of my favorite gifts.
My goodness it is Thursday already, where has this week gone, I hope you are enjoying it so far.
