Hello Saturday, the very last Saturday of 2013. You bring with you a week of the most glorious non winterish weather in the high 70's and we are basking in it. The garden that I just weeded and pruned back is bursting with buds and new weeds alike. But that's okay, I'm sure winter will turn up fashionably late, as this is Southern California after all.
I am in the midst of sickies at home and in my immediate family, with a bad bout of some sort of flu bug or cold virus (depending on who is describing the symptoms) with high fevers, chills, nausea, vomiting, headaches, coughing, sore throats and all manner of yucky feelings abounding.
So far, I have escaped with only a minor headache (and I think that may just be the result of playing nurse, a role I was not born to play) and I am hopeful that this bug will fly right over me.
I hope you and yours are fairing better and are happily enjoying the last hurrah of 2013. If I stay healthy, I am off to my moms tomorrow for a last visit with my sister before she flies back to Texas.
