Should this be the end?

That's what I've been pondering these past few weeks. Whether this blog has reached the end of its life.

Life has been total chaos and blogging has been the furthest thing from my mind. The odd time I'd feel this guilt build up as I know I haven't been blogging and quite often not even getting to read the blogs of my friends - it's terrible!

Thankfully I feel on the road to recovery after my influenza - NOT swine flue thank you very much! I wish it was Swine - this sucker hung on for over 4 weeks and I'm at the 5th week now and mornings are still rough with coughing and trying to clear stuff out - not pleasant to say the least.

Then I noticed that my DH who had been off blogging since the fall is at it again so maybe, just maybe it's still viable - if even just to keep a journal of what's going on in my life.

Today we went home for lunch even though our DD is off school for the summer. It's a nice break in the day. We ate our lunch on the back deck and I was surrounded by my beautiful flowers and even the knowledge that we had to head back to work was somehow not that unbearable.

I picked up the little teapot planter at Michael's, as soon as I saw it I just had to have it. Thankfully I got it on sale. The wave Petunia's are just perfect for it. The other tiered planters have geraniums, viola's and portulaca. They're just nice to have on the back deck. I have to enjoy the deck in the evenings and early mornings as we are South facing and there isn't much for shade so it is intensely hot. Today it's 30C which is 86F for my American friends and it's our really first HOT day! Thankfully I am blessed to have AC in work, home and the car. I'm one of those people who wilt in the heat, how can you tell my heritage is Norwegian...lol!

So I'm going to be back and I'm going to try to get more focus to this blog, especially since my job slows down to a turtle pace in July and August!
