What A Week.....

Whew! What a week its been....I "thought" as I usually do I was going to have a quiet week for once, be able to stay home, get some things done that have been put off, maybe work on my knitting a bit and hey, maybe even have some time to read!

Last summer..I just like this photo. Love when my Myrtle trees bloom

Turns out God had other plans for me this week. On Tuesday I finally had a doctor appointment since I've been sick for like three weeks. Yeah I know, what was I waiting for. Actually I thought it had been allergies since the weather had hit 80 degrees for a while there so I waited it out.. And yes I know, dumb..Anyway, I went Tuesday and I have a sinus infection and swollen glands. No big deal. Do I feel like garbage? Yes but I can't let it get me to far down. 

Nope not in my yard or even near my house just another photo I love.

I figured on Tuesday, Okay now it's time for me to stay in doors since it's been so cold outside, get some rest and work on getting better. Ah, the best laid plans of mice and men. That same morning Mr Lou began to complain he wasn't feeling well and he slept, and slept, and slept some more. Almost twenty four hours straight. I told him he needed to see a doctor which at first he refused. Can you imagine the smoke that was coming out of my ears? Finally by Thursday morning he agreed and off we went back to the doctor. 

Yep, these are mine. 

Turns out Mr Lou is good and sick and I'd be lying terribly if I did not say I was not super concerned and worried. He has pneumonia in both lungs. I was floored when the doctor told us this. So he sent Lou home with two weeks worth of antibiotics and a cough suppressant if he needs it as the cough tares up his chest. We go back in two weeks for another chest x-ray of his lungs. If you pray please add my Lou to your prayers that he heals from this. 

Yep, you know the drill 

So with me sick, Mr Lou sicker I've been doing a lot of running to the store for this and that because my head is so jammed full of stuff I keep forgetting things, back and forth to the drug store and ya know what? Im tired!....

As for this weekend, I have to go out today, yes to the food store because I forgot to buy the rolls for dinner. I suppose I could make some but umm, not this weekend. I will go to the store, take care of the furry ones, Mr Lou and myself . I would like to make it to Mass this weekend but right now that isn't looking too bright. I will have to see how I feel and I don't really fancy leaving Lou alone right now.  On Sunday NASCAR begins again. Yay! Yes I like NASCAR so what of it? (laughs). Mr Lou and I will watch the Daytona 500 together and God willing we will both get some rest. 

This past weekend around town

What are your plans for the weekend? Whatever they are may they be blessed! Have a great weekend! 


  1. Good Morning Robyn, I hope things settle down for the two of you and you can find time to read, relax, and knit.
    You have some beautiful photos of your yard today. I am anxious to see more of your flowers and blooming trees.
    I left a comment on your previous post.
    Praying you both feel better soon. Barb

    1. Hi Barb,
      Thanks so much for coming by and leaving a comment. So far all is quiet on the Western Front LOL!..Got a small nap in and a little knitting..I hope to be able to get more flowers in this summer and they live. Last year it was so incredibly hot everything burned :(. Thanks for coming by again :)

  2. Whoa Nellie! You guys got socked....I will say a prayer for both of you! I've been very fortunate to stay well. Of course, I don't mingle with others much so that helps and being retired I have no demands placed on me except by my "girls" and at times they can be pretty demanding. When you come home just get your pj's on and a robe and curl up with some hot tea and your knitting and any NASCAR pre-race shows on t.v. I'm football and there's always pre-game shows so there must be lots of chatter about NASCAR too. You both need to rest and get better. Take care!

    1. Hi Sam!
      Yeah we got a bit snackered..LOL..My husband and I are home all the time too as we are both disabled. Me with chronic illness and he with severe disk degeneration. He is still recovering from a complete spinal reconstruction surgery, his 7th this past Nov so we dont interact with a lot of people either unless we go to Mass, or the doctor. Im thinking maybe the girl who comes to help me clean may have brought something with her as her soon had been sick for a while and she was worried "he' was getting pneumonia..And thats exactly what I did!.. I came home, got my PJ's on and went back to bed for a while..Now just hanging out relaxing tonight. My mom was a HUGE football fan she could hold her own against any man.. She was awesome LOL..Thanks so much for coming by and commenting :)
      Blessed Weekend :)

  3. There is a lot of Monster Bug going around our area and it is hanging on for 2 or 3 weeks -- not at all fun. I hope you are both feeling better.
    As for what we are doing this weekend - our granddaughter is coming over to spend the night because both of HER parents have the Monster Bug! Just stopping by from the Say it Saturday Linky Party. Hope you get a chance to do the same!

  4. You've had quite the week, let's hope that next week is much better...and wishing you all well.


  5. Hi Robyn!
    Whoa Nellie-- you guys need to get some rest. I love the crepe myrtles, have some in my yard; aren't they beautiful?
    I guess I missed the fact that you knit... I like crocheting, I have tried knitting and it seems easy enough...but haven't learn to read a pattern or make anything. Crocheting is more natural for me and most times, I can just wing it!
    The Honey (my hubby) and I are both under the weather with what I am guessing to be allergies...
    Hope you get well, saying a prayer for you both. Pat

  6. Robyn I hope you both feel better soon. I spent the evening crafting last night.

  7. I'm catching up with posts I've missed because we haven't been well either. I'm hoping you and your dear feel much better and really soon!

  8. Wow, I am so sorry! Hope you both are doing ok now. Thanks for linking up with me :)


Please leave your comments, I love hearing from you! :)
