Strawberry fields forever

Hydroponic berries! Unfortunately, they weren't open for picking. But Morgan sure wished they were.

Things are beginning to shape up nicely

The hosta ghetto--a 27 x 3 foot L-shaped border around the patio--is no more. It took a full year, but the last of the hostas are out and flowers are going in. There are still tons of bare patches left to fill, and realistically this is a project that will probably take a couple of years before it comes even closer to matching the picture that's in my head, but it's a start.

Suffice it to say that I spoke too soon. Still sick. Cipro sucks. And that's all I've got to say about that.

Instead, have some cute kid shots!

I spoke too soon

Okay, now I'm better. Really. I'm also on an antibiotic that prohibits me from being out in the sun (argh!) but that restriction will be over as soon as the antibiotic is finished, which will be Thursday, unless the doc decides to keep me on the antibiotic for longer. And that is such an unhappy thought that I'm not even going to go there.

On a somewhat questionable plus side, I've lost ten pounds or so since this thing sidelined me. Don't get me wrong. I can certainly afford to lose the weight. This particular method, though...I hear there's a line in The Devil Wears Prada that relates to this, something about, I'm just one stomach flu away from my perfect weight!

Ha. Ha. Ha ha ha.

In the meantime...I don't have much to show for June, but I did manage to get out and about a little bit in between the recurring bouts of gastrointestinal horror. Clicky-click to see it large.
