Under The Weather

Sometimes I sit here and the words roll off my fingers. Sadly, today isn’t one of those days. I’ve been scrolling through my photos, hoping that one of them will provide some sort of inspiration – but when the body is tired the best thing to do is rest. I wanted to thank all of you for the kind birthday wishes. I appreciated each and every one of them.I meant to do something fun and then come back here and tell you about it. But the Mischief Maker and I got sick and we are both still feeling pretty low. Night-times are not very restful with all the coughing going on. So I suppose it’s understandable that I am rather the worse for wear at the moment.
This coming Friday I will be joining Suze for False Start Fridays. You can read more about that here.
In the meantime, I will try to find my muse. She doesn’t usually lurk too far away – not unless she’s on holiday or has come down with the flu herself.

  1. dearest loree - belated birthday wishes - so sorry i missed that last post and also to hear you are your son have been under the weather :((

    here's wishing you are both feeling better soon and hope your special day was filled with love and joy!


  2. Rest is the prescription, friend, though I know sleep eludes you with a winter cough nagging both you and your little one. When you cannot sleep, at least keep still and don't overexert yourself.

  3. What a beautiful image, a lovely view of the wild flowers and beyond. Sorry you haven't been feeling well. Wishing you a speedy recovery and a Happy Birthday!

  4. Look under the bed, maybe she is there :) ! I have moments like that too, or sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with a good inspiration for a post then I jump out of my bed write it down and then fall asleep. Otherwise I would turn around like a windmill in my bed with the ideas in my head !
    Hope your cold will be over soon ! and the nightly coughing concert stops !

  5. Hello:
    We are so sorry to learn that you are under the weather. We know from experience that these 'flu type colds can really get one down and take ages to be rid of. The worst aspect is that lingering cough.

    That said, we have much enjoyed your image of thrift on a Cornish cliff top.

  6. Love the photograph!
    Hope you and your mischief maker will start feeling better very soon.
    Take care!

  7. Beautiful photo... sorry to hear you and Mischief Maker haven't been feeling well. It's hard to find inspiration when you're under the weather. Rest and take care of yourself and she will return.
    xoxo, B

  8. Beautiful flowers
    Wishing you a big get well soon
    I like a smooth bowl of black bean chili
    when I'm under the weather.

  10. That's a lovely photo, but I'm so sorry to hear you and your son have the flu (and on your birthday, no less!) We all had it in December, and it was no fun at all. Rest well, and I hope you're feeling better soon!

  11. Those wild flowers are beautiful to see at this time of year for me! I hope you and your son are all better now..

  12. HUgs..hope you feel all sparkling and bright real soon!
