Starting to Feel Better...yay!!

Finally starting to feel better."YIPPEE!!!!

Called the dr's office today to ask questions and was told that the antibiotic will remain in my system 5 days after I finished taking it..which is good.

I go back to the dr. in 2 weeks.
But thankfully the kidney pain has started to diminish.

Wanted to say... thanks for all your good thoughts and kind comments..really appreciated it.
Went to a few stores today after running errands..and I declare.."Collin" was about the only one that got spoiled today..ha.(except for the fact that I did buy myself a few magazines)
Actually I had to buy him some more dog to Petsmart I went..but before that I stopped at Target..
They have some of the cutest Easter chocolates(no..I didn't buy any) but they were in farm animal cute..little lambs, ducks and bunnies..absolutely adorable..and all the Spring colors looking at the new designs in the dishes..saw the cutest Daisy plates and didn't buy them.(may have to go back and indulge myself)

I got a book on Click training my dog, and a pair of doggy nail clippers, and some doggy smell pretty spray for "Collin"..see I told you he got spoiled today.
Then I stopped by Books A Million..this stop was for me..ha.

I took a browse through the latest "Artful Blogging" magazine..and saw my friend Kim/from "Daisy Cottage" mentioned in there..and lots of other beautiful blogs.

Browsed through several of the Somerset Studio magazines as well....
but..wound up getting the latest "Tea Time" and "Hobby Farm Home" magazines.
Will have to subscribe to these that's for sure.
The latest "Tea Time" magazine has a scrumptious looking recipe for Strawberry Macaroons..the true French styled macaroons! ..ooh la-la.

If only I didn't have so much weight to lose..but alas..I can only look and drool for now.
If you enjoy all things tea,tea time,then do check out this has lovely "eye candy" and wonderful tea time recipes.
The latest issue of "Hobby Farm Home" covers "Cooking with Garden Herbs".

I can't wait to flip through the I really want to grow several herbs this year by the back door.

Right now I have violas and pansies growing in the repurposed deck area.(An old deck area that was ripped out and changed into a garden bed with 4 small raised bed areas with a mulched and stepping stone path through the middle/still surrounded by the deck railing though)

I have seen/read that violas and pansies are edible flowers..and I actually did try tasting them the other day..but..I think I prefer simply snipping the flowers and pressing them between paper towels to be used later in crafts. They didn't taste all that me anyhow. But..I did get brave and try though..ha.
And yes.."Collin" got his dog food today..and some chewy sticks to munch on. See..I told you he got spoiled today..ha.
And yesterday hubby bought him a new kennel..and a bed.(I think we have another "child"..ha)
Well..I am sighing with relief that I am feeling lots better now. Can't wait until I'm back to normal all the way and can get back to the projects on my "to do" list.
Well...thank you all for visiting.
I have enjoyed it so much..and have noticed that I have some "new faces" visiting my blog lately.
Thank you and welcome!
I hope that you'll become a "regular", and stop by and say "howdy" every now and again.
Thanks for joining me in "blogland"
May you have a wonderful evening!

Hey Tina,
So glad you are feeling better.
Keep drinking the water and consider cranberry juice.
Good luck on finding a new

there is other ducks, the male will get his come uppens.
Enjoy your blog so much.

So glad to read that you are feeling better. Those can be nasty.
Those strawberry macaroons sound wonderful.....calorie free, I'm sure!!!

I'm with you on the edible flowers. I have used them in salads but think I use them for the looks more than the flavor.

What a fun shopping trip! I agree about the current Artful Blogging -- such fun!

I'm awfully glad you're feeling better, Tina! I am pouring through the merit badge book, still feeling fortunate by my win!

Take it easy this weekend and keep improving!

Glad you're feeling better. I saw those daisy plates at Target the other day and immediately thought of Kim.
