It's been a long week of coughing, sneezing, wheezing, blowing my nose and more coughing, but I'm finally feeling somewhat normal.  My ears are still plugged, I'm still blowing my nose and coughing up a storm, but my head isn't throbbing and that alone makes me hopeful the end of the sinus infection is near.  Thank you for all the kind words.

It was an absolutely beautiful weekend here.  I can't believe it's only the middle of May.  It felt good to get some yard work done.  The grass was beginning to look like a pasture.  We dump the grass cuttings in the outdoor chicken pen so they can pick through for the good things.  The girls were so excited and went right to work, scratching, digging and eating.

My mom came over today for Mother's Day.  I baked bread, coconut cake, and made BBQ beer can chicken and potato salad with fresh asparagus from the garden.  Tonight is filled with chores.

I'm hoping all of you had a wonderful weekend as well.  Happy Mother's Day to all the mother's out there!!

EEWWW Sinus infection. Oh my. I understand how you feel. I've had a few and they are just the pits. UUgg so sorry but glad you feel like you are improving. Sounds like you had a nice time with your mom. The meal sounds delicious. Love the picture of the flower-very pretty. Keep on improving and feeling better.

Glad you are feeling better, it's hard to enjoy the perfect weather when you don't feel so perfect!

Oh dear, I totally get the sinus infection thing. Misery! Hope you are feeling better. I was on vacation in London last week and oddly, even with all the rain, my sinuses were fine! Back here on the eastern shore it took less than a day for the pain and pressure to come back. Perhaps we should move? Feel better soon. That flower (lily?) pic is gorgeous!!
