signs of spring?

 No, it's my bevvy of ginger plants.  The first one is really getting tall! Time to transplant it into a bigger pot, I think.  It's leaning over because I left my plants near the sliding glass door while we were away. I've turned it in the opposite direction and hope it will straighten up. The leaves have a slight gingery fragrance, which I really like.

I cancelled 3 appointments today. Not only was it snowing when I awoke, the cold I've been fighting with chicken soup finally won and turned my head into a wad of cotton with a cough. I am laying low so I can feel semi-human on Sunday afternoon and show up at the gallery for the fundraising event.

Being forced to stay in for a couple of days will make me work on taxes, which is a good thing.  Except that I feel too lousy to concentrate, which is a bad thing.  I'll sew instead.

Two more things on this un-businesslike blog and then I'm off to bed.

Sunday will be my 5th blogiversary. I was hoping to reach 200,000 readers by then but it doesn't look promising.  However, I'll have a giveaway to the 200,000th reader whenever we reach that number.

Finally, Jessica's Facebook post made me laugh today. She went to the doctor and then out to lunch before she headed back to Brooklyn.

Two pregnant women at lunch and waiter tells us there's caffeine in the chocolate cake. And his point was?

Night, all.

Thanks, all. Feeling a bit better by the end of the day. Your good wishes helped, no doubt.

I hope your cold isn't as nasty as mine has been. I finally resorted to expired cough medicine so I could sleep. My friend, who is also my doctor, laughed and said they were revising the rules for expiration of meds, but 2007 was probably pushing it. My symptoms are pretty much gone, but my energy level is not back to normal! I hope you feel better soon.
