WHATCHA BEEN UP TO?

OK, OK, where have I been? I get so busy sometimes I truly don't know whether I am coming or going. The Train Station accounts for a bit of my time... Please visit http://onley-spots.blogspot.com/ to see what we have been up to the past week. I am too lazy to copy it all over here like I did the last time. True, that only accounts for a few hours of my life, but it seems like more than that.
The garden is struggling. Many of the plants are winding down, the new beans have just started producing. Late tomatoes have started producing. My "people" have been keeping me busy the last couple of weeks. Not complaining, just sayin'. In truth, it is humbling to be able to help folks.
And my Lymes has been acting up a little lately. How I wish I had a Dr available who would write me a prescription for a massive dosing of antibiotics to help kick this stuff into remission again for a while. However, there is no one around here to do that. My regular doctor will give me what she considers 2 weeks worth, but a Lymes dosage will deplete 2 weeks worth in 2 days. Oh well........
It is raining as I type this. We have had almost an inch of rain in the last hour and a half. I won't have to water the garden tomorrow. That will be nice. I will have to buy a new paintbrush because I wash them out outside, so, it did not get done. Small price to pay for the much needed rain. The rain has also dropped the temps down into the 70s. What a relief. It has been beastly hot and humid. I hate to mention that since others have had it so much hotter than we. The humidity has been 200%, I swear! Somedays ya just can't breathe.
Maybe I will find something fun to blog about this week - and maybe the time to sit and read YOUR blog. That would be nice! Yes, the dragonflies are still buzzing around. NO board meetings next week, that will be a break, so maybe I can get caught up. Don't put any money on it.
If you are among the folks feeling ignored, sorry. I promise to try to do better. Note the wording. Try is the key word here.
Enjoy the Train Station blog! Drop in and visit us if you are in the neighborhood and see a bunch of vehicles down there! Bring your paintbrush and hammer... maybe a fan. And water.
Gotta go put my kitchen back enough to cook dinner. Having electrical work done. If its not one mess, its another, right?

Right.. busy week here also... doctor visits and sich* (my granddaughters favorite word).. on Friday, though, we went to Topsail.. guest of my son who was on vacation.. that was nice.. next week doesn't look to be as busy.. I don't think there is such a thing as "getting caught up".. Hope your Lymes feels better soon..:)

"...massive dosing of antibiotics"...

Is bacteria the cause of Lyme's pain? I would imagine 'germs' being killed off by 1 or 2 good doses of an antibiotic, never to raise their ugly heads again.

Have you ever considered colloidal silver? It does wonders but no harm...just my experience.

Hey, Jan...this isn't your usual "up" blog entry. Be good to yourself and get some rest. It's great to give so much to others but you've got to be well to do it ! Sending a hug ...
