Around OakMeadows

I was in bed most of yesterday and today.  I finally came down with the plague that DD, DSIL, and JMM have had. DD had it first and worst of all.  I have been taking aspirin and Benadryl. Sore and swollen throat, fever and malaise.  I seem to be feeling  bit better this evening. I am hoping that I feel well enough to get up and at least putter around the house tomorrow.  We'll see.  

On the political scene: Ted Cruz is out and The Donald is the only man left standing on the Republican side.  And Bernie won Indiana and of course the only thing the media says is how impossible it is for him to get enough delegates to win the nomination.  Go Bernie!!

I watched the last of Downton Abbey. It was predictable but very enjoyable.  Loved the clothes!!

My sweet cats have been my constant cuddlers while I was in bed.  Which means my bedding is covered in cat hair from their shedding their winter coats.  Ack! 

Well I think I'll go take 2 aspirin and 2 Benadryl and hope I wake up in this morning feeling better.

May Meditation

When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.

John Muir

April Poetry

"Let me arise and open the gate,
to breathe the wild warm air of the heath,
And to let in Love, and to let out Hate,
And anger at living and scorn of Fate,
To let in Life, and to let out Death."
-  Violet Fane
