I am trying hard to reconcile myself to the fact that I am really not going to get anything in the ground until May. But it's so hard- I want to plant vegetables!! I want warm weather! Heck, I even want to mow the grass!

We are supposed to get 3-5" of "wet, sloppy snow" on Saturday night! NOOOOOOOOO!!!

OK, childish temper tantrum over...

I have been so sick over the past 14 days... I had a cold, and that went away, then I had what seemed to be bad allergies... until my right ear drum ruptured. And the strep test came back positive. Now I'm feeling a little better, after 2 days of the antibiotic. My ear is feeling better, too. It hurt like heck for a while there!

I decided to not participate in some of the swaps I was going to do for April. I have a million things to catch up on once I'm fully well! I know that I need to take the month off, but it's going to be hard, looking at the pictures of everyone else's quilts and knowing I won't be getting one:( I'll be back in the ring for May, though!


  1. Sorry you have been sick, Julie... Never had an ear problem myself, but I'm sorry you had one! Rest up and get all the way well soon!

  2. You poor thing, it's so nasty and seems to be doing the rounds. I'm sure once the sun is shining and you can start pottering about in the garden you'll feel much better.

    Take care...Ann :)

  3. It's been 70 here and spring has definitely sprung (insert evil laugh)
