What a beautiful day it has been!

Wow! I knew I was missing warmer temps, and I have been begging for Spring to arrive, but I didn't know just how much I wanted it until it arrived today! It has been in the mid-70's today here in north Georgia. The weather has been just spectacular! I'm in heaven!!

The girls spend the night with mom last night, so Tim and I woke up to a very peaceful house. The morning had clouds and a light misting drizzle. However, right after lunchtime the clouds parted, the sun shone brightly, and the sky became a beautiful shade of blue. It has been fantastic!

We worked outside most of the afternoon, just cleaning around the house and raking leaves. Then Tim grilled out cheddar brawts for us. Yum! Now everyone has a full tummy and it beginning their bath-taking. I look forward to a relaxing evening with the family because everyone is tired out. LOL!

On another note. I did take Tim to the doctor yesterday and I was right, he has bronchitis. He's now on a Z-pak and an inhaler. He should be feeling much better in a few days. Actually he looks and sounds a lot better today than he did Thursday. Poor guy was wheezing and gasping. Now he's sounding a lot better.

He's been so careful about not giving the rest of us his germs. I'm missing my mouth kisses terribly. Does anyone know how long he might be contagious? I haven't the foggiest idea.

Since he's dealing with this, we aren't going to visit the in-laws tomorrow. They are smokers and, even though they don't smoke when we're there, the smoke would be aggravating his lungs terribly. Tim smoked when we met, and during several years of our marriage. Once we built our house (and I was pregnant with the oldest), he was banned from smoking in-doors. Luckily, six years ago he finally kicked the habit.

He's been cigarette-free for 6 years and I'm soooo proud of him. What's really funny is that now the smell of smokers really bothers him. I just keep reminding him that I had to deal with it all those years he smoked and he's just getting paid back for it. LOL!

Anyway, he's feeling better now and that's what matters. We've had a glorious day and all are happy and relaxed. Oh, and we have to remember to move our clocks up and hour tonight! I love this time of the year. I like having daylight later in the evening.

I hope you're all having a good weekend and enjoying nicer temps. Til next time!



  1. Glad to hear Tim is feeling better already. If he is fever free & has been on antibiotics for at least 24 hrs (& is remember to take them as directed) he shouldn't be contagious anymore. Even with as careful as he is being, don't be surprised if you end up getting were breathing the same air in bed at night before he realized he was sick & that is when this kind of stuff is the most contagious. I hope you don't get it, but if you do, go to the Dr right away to get on an antibiotic.

    I'm LOVING the warm weather too....I saw daffodils today!!!!

  2. Thanks Denise! We'll see if I end up sick next week. LOL! I'm usually the one who cares for the sickos and never picks it up, so hopefully that'll be the case this time too.

    Yay on daffodils!!! We've already been outside this morning too, and I just hung laundry out on the line. Woohoo!
