Spring + lots going on…

It’s been one of THOSE weeks.  Had awful pains on Tuesday — ended up having to go to urgent care on Wednesday.  Yikes, I never do things like that — J was so worried.  It’s a UTI.  They aren’t sure where it is, exactly, but they put me on antibiotics.  Which are helping — yay!  But they are making me feel sooooo weak.  I keep sleeping + sleeping + sleeping + … well, you get the idea.

I went for a little hobble yesterday — too painful to walk — and took these pictures of the sweet Mexican plum tree growing next to our driveway.  Just had to share.


It was really windy and cloudy, but the sun kept popping out.  Was in the high 70’s and the birds were tweeting away.  Wish you could smell these.  I tried to capture the feeling of being in the tree.  I just wanted to bury my nose in there.


Ahhhhhhhh, spring.

I’m feeling a little better today + hoping to enjoy some more of this gorgeous weather.   And stamp!  I’ve been stamping in my sleep, have tons of ideas running around in my brain.  Do you do that?

Have a great weekend!

  3. Oh, Lisa, I’m so sorry you’re not feeling well.  Those UTIs are awful…..I’ve had one or two way back.  Glad to hear that the meds are helping.  Your plums tree pics are lovely.  Too bad we don’t have smellovision!!

    Get better Lisa! Hope you are feeling better.  The pictures are fantastic and I can almost smell those sweet blossoms.  We have a ways to go before we see any of those!

  6. Lisa – So sorry you are sick. Hope the sunshine and pretty Texas wildflowers starting to come out help, along with the meds. Love your blog and your cards!!! Thanks for sharing with us out in blog-land.

  7. Hi Lisa, sorry you haven’t been feeling well…. hope you mend real quick!!  I dream of paper and stamps and creating all the time, vivid dreams…. sometimes I don’t even have to be asleep to have these dreams!!

  8. OMG, Lisa! I’m glad you are feeling better! I had UTI once, it was horrible! You poor thing, sending big hugs your way!!

    You take the most amazing photos!! TFS! BTW, what kind of lens are you using?

  9. Oh man…. UTI – nasty business.. But, it really could be worse! I had one of those while traveling on a business trip! The joy of trying to get to a doc and meds when you are not home!!! GADS…

    So, drink cranberry juice, too… My mommy advice..

    Lovely flowers! Wah! I wish it were spring, I wish it were spring…

  10. Feeling for you, a UTI is nasty business! Hope you get better soon, can’t wait to see what your dreams have inspired.

  11. Hope you’re feeling better soon and can take those walks you enjoy so much!  Great pics…beautiful closeups!

  13. Hope you are feeling tip-top soon! :-)

  14. Hola Lisa!  Those pics are pretty! 

  15. Fantastic photos Lisa!

  16. Hey Lisa!  Hope you are feeling better!  We are having pretty cold weather here in Iowa…it’ supposed to warm up to 50’s this weekend…we will see!  :)

    It is funny you ask if we are stamping in our sleep…I am actually sketching!  I just told my mom today that I have had the craziest dreams & by morning I have cards all planned out & I’m ready to start creating!  I told her it would get really interesting if I ended up having cards put together by morning…wouldn’t that take the fun out of it?!?  I also would be a master at multi-tasking…something I am constantly working at!  :)

  17. I LOVE that second photo that you took “in” the trees and would love to know a bit about your camera setting when you took it. So glad you’re better and back!
