The Pause Button

I have been stricken with a cruddy virus for two days or more. Sore throat, aches and no energy. I have only managed to work on the Artists Among Us database, using Filemaker Pro. I am getting the hang of it.

I am behind with my 3 x 3s. I was going to organize some work to do while I was gone. Feel like I have lost two days!!

Since I have no work to show, I will post some photos of my last walk with Scooter.

This woman was walking 6 dogs off leash with her Granddaughter following along. The calmest woman I have encountered in a long time!! Three of the dogs belong to her daughter.

The state flower, The Oregon Grape, is in bloom.

A Tulip Tree in the Rhodie Garden.

The ubiquitous moss.

Lots of pink.



The willow tree that graces the entrance.

We have had two days of wind and rain. March is going out like a lion. I hope the weather gets better for our drive south on Sunday.

Here is Paige all dressed to go to her home yesterday. Can’t wait to see her in person.

    I hope you kick the crud soon. I know it is going around, but that doesn’t make it any easier when you have it. I love the moss covered tree and the trilliums. My wine colored trilliums are budded up and the white ones are above ground. You can move me from the wet side, but you can’t make me stop trying to grow the wildflowers from there! Take care and I really do hope you feel better tomorrow. This awful weather isn’t helping any. (((Hugs)))
