Reflections...

An update....Roger is feeling much better in all ways...at least he was yesterday. We had planned to try to get to the doctor yesterday but he got up and felt like a new man. No fever. No over all worn out feeling. He ran errands with me all day yesterday...and still did not feel bad when the day was done.

How he will feel today is anybody's guess. I am hoping for the best. He just cannot stand to lay around all the time...he told me one day if he wasn't the might warrior that he is, he would be sitting in the middle of the living room crying. Even as bad as he feels, he can still make fun of stuff, himself included.

Now if we can just keep his back in shape. He was going hunting again today, but decided to stay home and clean the gutters...I wish he wouldn't even try that for a while. Or would let me do it...
***************
I am hoping I can get back to blogging regularly...the kids were here over the weekend and I just don't do much when they are here.

Lorelei, Sarah and I were sitting out back. She kept telling me I had a small island on my roof. I was thinking she was seeing the vent. She kept repeating it to me over and over, till I got up and looked where she was looking....in the gutter was a about an 8 inch space where maple seeds had sprouted and were growing enough till she could see them. I could plainly see why she would call it an island...just would not have thought she knew the word and what it meant.

Jim gets the same way when he's sick, tho he's learning how to relax when he needs to. I remember at our church in Illinois seedlings growing in the gutters, it does look neat.

A fine picture with the great colors and a reflection too.
Excellent! I'm glad Roger is back on the mend. Backs can be so tricky.

Glad your hubby is feeling better. My hubby has had to clean out the gutters a couple of times because of the maple seeds. He gets on the roof, which makes me nervous because he has a knee that wants to go out on him from time to time. But I'm scared of heights and couldn't do it!

Love your photo, it looks like a peaceful place to sit and relax on that bench. Have a nice day!

I'd like one of those bowls of tomatoes please! Oh, maybe later in the summer. What a day of work for you two. Impressive to hear of your innovative use of planks.

The reflection picture is so pretty! I feel bad for your husband, it's so tiring to be in pain all the time.!
