Today was a "Mental Health" day. Every so often when my Fibromyalgia gets the best of me, I allow myself a day to do nothing. I sit and watch TV, read, play on my laptop, and or nap. I don't do dishes, laundry, dust, or cook. (luckily my husband is gone most of the week). I haven't had many of these lately as I am on a wonderful new medicine, Lyrica! For the most part, I feel better than I have in years. But today was just one of those days.

I'm sure it has to do with the weather. It has been cold!! We had more snow during the night. No sun again! And the fronts have been moving through at a rapid pace. Feeling like this today, I can't get up the energy to even think about the garden.

So I thought I would show you my true flowers. My blooming beauties! The joys of my life! These flowers need no trimming, pruning, weeding, or watering. They need only love, tenderness, and a willingness to let them grow at their own pace. And in return, they give me happiness, delight, pleasure and abiding love.
I hope thier smiling faces give you a moment of joy, too!

Hi Beckie. I hope you get to feeling better soon.

Your "flowers" are beautiful. You are mightly blessed to have a garden full of these beauties.

Hang in there girl it will warm up and the sun will shine.

You have a very nice site here, I'll enjoy keeping up with you out there on the prairie. I lived in Iowa before moving to Maine, so it feels like reading about home.

Beth, Thank you. I've enjoyed your site and your writings. I imagine Iowa is a lot like us in many ways..mainly corn and beans. Maine is gorgeous as seen through your eyes.

You have lovely granddaughters.

Oh Beckie, they're beautiful girls!

I'm sending you virtual hugs, because I know just how you feel. Thank you for supporting me when I'm going through the same thing and for being my running cheerleader!

I hope we get some really warm weather soon, because that makes us both feel much better than the cold, doesn't it? Less pain!

I'm so glad you can take Lyrica. Romie thinks I should give it another try.
