Not A Good Week.

#1. I've been sick this week with a wild tummy bug. Feeling some better but it just won't go away.

#2. I find that as I age, I catch more illnesses, they stick around longer and I seem to visit the doctor more than I used to. What's up with that!!

#3. Had a lovely visit with daughter Marie. Any of you who follow this blog and hers, too, have been reading about all the fun things and the catching up we did. 

#4. I am upset this morning. The pond across the road from me has been a huge source of enjoyment for me since I moved into my apartment. At 7:30 this morning I heard this awful grinding noise. A truck was grinding up pieces of a tree (or group of trees) that had just been cut down. They sat at the edge of the pond and birds loved to rest there, or hunt for fish underneath it. I don't think they are finished. Half of it is gone... I'll let you know if the rest goes.

and here's a bird playing in the water underneath that tree.

#5. For those of you who are my friends on facebook.... I have decided to start a 'Memory Monday', sort of like Throw Back Thursday but more about the stories rather than the pictures. So, if you are a friend of mine on facebook, look for it soon. 

Joining with Willy Nilly Friday and Five on Friday 


  1. Good morning, Latane, and I hope you will be feeling better soon. I also had an upset stomach overnight and after an up-chuck and some antacid am feeling so much better today. Too bad about those trees being taken down and perhaps there was a "reason" like disease or infestation?

  2. Oh, I hate to see trees cut down!
    Hope you are feeling much better soon!

  3. Oh I am so upset about that tree! What is the mater with (the City?) that they think getting rid of habitat is ok??? It isn't in anyone's way, and helps the wildlife so much. I am totally annoyed now! Well, the fact that you have been sick all week has been bad news. I am sorry you are having trouble shaking this. Hope you are MUCH better by day's end. I will look for the Monday memories! Yes, we had an awesome visit and I am still posting stuff! :-) You missed my Thankful Thursday...I was thankful for you!

  4. just isn't fair sometimes!

  5. Oh so sorry to hear you've been sick. - That is never fun.
    Yeah getting older has some not so fun perks.
    Well that is just horrible about the tree being taken down by the pond.

  6. Hope you are feeling better. Such a shame about the tree.

  7. Feel better soon, Latane. Hope that the grinding activity at the pond ceases. Now you've made me curious to look up your daughter's blog!

  8. I planted some bulbs today. I'm going to be sore tomorrow! Yes, the older we get, the more susceptible.

  9. Hello, Latane,
    Ohh! It is sad to see that tree being cut down. That tree is a part of the green park with that pretty pond. I hope there is a reason to protect the nature there.
    I hope you are feeling much better.
    Happy day to you!

  10. oh i am so sorry you are feeling under the weather...i really enjoyed hearing about your visit with sweet marie! i hate that they are cutting down the trees but maybe they were diseased? i hope you are feeling better and will visit again soon! thank you for sharing with willy nilly :)

  11. Yes, the older we get, the more susceptible.



I hope you will visit often and leave a comment when you do. My blogging friends always put a smile on my face.
