I’m not sure why I would decide to develop abdominal cellulitis now. I don’t know how one goes about creating abdominal cellulitis … But, I’ve been quiet lately, in part – because that’s what I’ve been doing/GROWING???
Absolute craziness! Not what I had programmed. But, there you have it – this body has it’s own plans … I don’t recommend it. I don’t like it! If you get a choice, don’t choose it! Deep belly ache, crazy Native-American-esque red slashes across your gut, and they are HOT! Brew for a few days … Next up – a super-fun ER visit! Great Nurse, Great Doc, GREAT CARE … Here’s my IV bruise – so colorful!!! (I bruise easily … It’s something I’m naturally good at!)
Now, add in some stomach-CLENCHING oral antibiotics for a couple/few weeks … Meanwhile – my HEAD wants productive stuff to HAPPEN here!!!
DH is helping, as much as he can. I’m waddling around with a 7 month pregnant BELLY (down from 9 months), F.U.L.L. – with that short-of-breath abdominal gut … Uhmm, WHO ORDERED THIS? Waiter, can I send it back??? Any way – moving on!
DH is building the chicken coop. Our oldest daughter sent a hand-lettered sign, “Coopa Cabana” for Mother’s Day … I love it!
And, he’s building a PALACE for these Ladies!
Our girls are growing. This, I can watch over! We have 10 LADIES, and I’m sure we will get into all of their names – and their shenanigans!
The garden is planted … mostly. I hope DH can help make the last few parts happen … Here is a quick pic of the pre-starts I still have growing in the studio window:
I am happy. I’m waddling – which is not on the happy list! My Coopa and my garden are in … I can waddle – until the antibiotics kick in, SOMEDAY!
Lastly, I stumbled on a salve recipe, made from readily available yard ‘weeds’ (plantain and dandelion flowers) … It’s supposed to be anti-inflammatory and help with arthritic pain … Who couldn’t use some of that!?! … So I have it ‘brewing’ in a crock-pot:
