Feeling Better

I am feeling a bit better today. Thanks for all your get well wishes. I went to the doctor today and fortunately the place was opened (see previous post). The nurse took a throat culture for strep and when the doctor looked inside my throat he said, "Oh my God" and ordered a mono test too! Fortunately it is not mono. He gave me a shot of penicillan and two prescriptions and I was on my way home! I am hoping to feel even better tomorrow.

I took a stroll in the garden this afternoon to see what's in bloom and I found my Coral Charm Peonies starting to burst forth. As this variety ages it ends up turning a cream color, but the way it looks in the photo above is how it got it's name. This group of peonies we planted 27 years ago when we first moved into our house. It is amazing to me that a flower can keep blooming over and over for so many years. My neighbor has some that are even older. Anyway, my DH used to work for a plant nursery which specialized in peonies and that is where we got these plants.

Does anyone have any plans for this weekend? With both of us so sick, we haven't had time to even think about it. Well whatever you end up doing, be safe and have fun!
