Sunny with a cool wind

Today we have a lovely sunny day, with a cool wind, both will dry up the garden so that I can get working in it again. Our soil has a lot of clay in it so it takes awhile to dry out enough to work in it.

OH's Dr visit yesterday went better than I had hoped. The problems that he had several weeks back, were the result of an undetected disease, which reared it's head with a vengeance, when he stopped taking medication to cure his gout. OH swore that he would never take that medication again. However, that same medication is the one of choice to treat the disease that has just been diagnosed. When told of the outcome if he did not take it, he really did not have any choice. Because the worst scenario was, in approximately a year he could be in a nursing home, and possibly blind. Reluctantly he agreed to take it, the good news, after two doses of medication, I can see an improvement already, and he is looking, and feeling a lot better. A miracle drug for sure.

Now that crisis is over I can concentrate on my sewing as I have a couple of projects that need to be completed within a month. So I am getting off this computer and going to work in the sewing room.

So glad to hear your husband is doing better. It is so hard when a loved one is not doing well.

We live in WV and have very clay soil also. We do much of our gardening above the ground. Our other problem is that we live in the Appalacian Mts. and when you put a shovel in the dirt you Always hit rock!!

Hope life gets back to "normal" for you.
