Lost Week

I had such high hopes for this past week. The play busyness was over and I had so much to catch up on. Instead, I caught an icky head cold so that I could do only what I really HAD to do. Add to that, the extremely HOT weather we had, breaking all the records with temps in the upper 90s - ugh! Just skip over spring and go straight into summer, no time to acclimate to the heat. So, very little computer time, very little blog reading, no blog posts, laundry, gardening, etc.

The bright spot I kept thinking about was that on Saturday, DH and I would be leaving home for 3-1/2 days away to Lake Chelan for the annual Professional Insurance Agents convention. One of the companies is hosting us in a condo a few miles out of the town of Chelan, and I'm really hoping to be able to rest and recuperate from this cold - and do some stitching and hopefully blog reading.

My rose bushes are beginning to bloom and I'm enjoying a stroll through the rose garden each morning to see what's new. Here is one of the first buds to bloom this spring.


I'm off now to finish packing. Hope I find an internet connection up there so I can catch up with everyone. Have a wonderful weekend!

Have a great time. Sometimes just getting away will make you feel better.
Your roses are lovely! Mine are being stubborn about opening. We have had chilly temps with the 80s expected in a few days. The wind has been awful this year. We just don't have wind like this near Philly.

Hope you have a good time with your DH!
These roses are so delicate! Love their colour!
Here, it's raining and windy and cold! But I don't think I'll complain too much about that as Heat just drives me exhausted...
Take care!

Danielle said...

It is the same here in NE--HOT already--yuck!!!! I know I should love summer, and I would, but I hate the humidity and excessive heat! Hope you had fun in Lake Chelan--looks lovely!

Oh Von, I can certainly emphathise with you regarding your cold. It's just horrid being sick.

On a brighter side, your roses are so lovely. Thanks for sharing.

Rest up and get better soon:)
