Dreaming of Arizona While at Home With Pneumonia



I know the title says it all... but I really and truly am dreaming of Arizona while being stuck, isolated in my bedroom with pneumonia! It is going on over 4 weeks now and I am on round 2 of antibiotics, not allowed visitors blah... blah... blah...
I'm sorry... I am not meaning to be a complainer so it all stops here. It's in Your hands God. Amen.

So Calgary... yep... we have managed to get some snowfall and I am reading some magazines that have really got me drivelling at the possibility that this Spring I might actually plant my very first flower/butterfly garden. As I mentioned in earlier posts I discovered this wonderful little magazine called Birds and Blooms and then one more called Nature's Garden and I am not a gardener but I have to tell you I am in awe of what some people are capable of - I mean the talent it takes to grow these gorgeous flower gardens is amazing. It is nothing like what I thought where you simply plant flower seeds here and there and watch them bloom and grow... no... some of these people really know what they are doing and have planned out each section according to height and color and depth of each flower... it truly amazes me! It has made me determined to perfect this flower growing business and so I am reading up as much as I can to see which flowers and plants attract which sorts of birds and what to feed the birds (all the while remembering that I live in Calgary and everything does not grow the same here)...
That being said I have a wonderful friend who is going to come over and help me in the spring to plan out some options for our yard! Yay!

I think this pneumonia has really gotten to me because it's made me think of all sorts of crazy ideas for the spring... for my art... for my house... I have had too much time on my hands to think! think! think!
Pray for me if you will that God my bless me with healing from this illness and that I will be on the road to recovery very soon!
Blessings to all of you creative people!
... still longing for the warmth of the Arizona heat, the smells of orange trees, looking at all the birds fluttering from tree to tree... dreaming of Arizona...
Goodnight.

You go right ahead and complain. Better to get it out than to let it build up. Thankfully you have the internet - germfree. We wouldn't want you to catch anything else. May that nasty bacteria be gone!

I am praying that you'll get well soon too Kelly. Thank you so much for your suggestion on my plum flower post. I have thought about it, but I'd like to do another one with just colors, meaning mixed media like I always do. I'd like to see how that one will turn out too, but I need to have patience and save it for year-end or next year. :) But I promise that I'll get back to it.

Healing prayers coming your way. Please take care of yourself and get well soon. It's a real drag being isolated in your room.

Kelly we do get to complain a little when we are feeling lousy and it's taking so long to get better. It reminds me of a story about one of the saints. St. Teresa was riding her mule to go somewhere when the mule stopped and threw her into a puddle of mud. St. Teresa stood up, shook her fist at the sky and said "if this is how you treat your friends God, it's no wonder you have so few of them". I always laugh at that story. Even the most sainted people get upset. Heck, even Jesus got impatient at times! I sure hope this second round of antibiotics does the trick.
