I haven't fallen off the Earth but I feel like it.

Flu, flu, work, work, flu then to the hospital...double pnemonia. Yup thats my life the last 6 weeks. I"m in my second week of recovery & to make matters even worse on my CT scan my lung lymph nodes were enlarged beyond what illness should give me so naturally the resident gives me a list of reasons that includes cancer but thats the only one I heard. The odds are small but frankly any odds just aint delightful or delovely. I'll have to be re scanned & if I dont get ship shape sooner well then everything will just be pushed up but forgive me if I'm not in a blogging mood. I'll be back soon. I just need to veg, rest & find my usual kickin ass character again.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous Halloween week & enjoying the bounty of Autumn that I miss so very much. See the leaves, wear a sweater & pick an apple for me. I threw an amazing picking party eons ago back in a friends orchards in Michigan. Think picnic tables covered with vintage plaid blankets, baskets, vintage enamelware and a killer tablescapeof pumpkins, apples & straw/ Why oh why could 1994 not be a digital year??

Love to all.

girlie, you have been missed. I do hope you are feeling on the mend - doesn't sound like much fun at all, being you... :)
feel free to meet me in London if you need some cool, crisp weather - just let me know when you are free to sneak away!
(oh, a girl can dream, can't she???)

Oh Lordy girl I wondered if you were ever going to manage to drag yourself back to the computer because I can imagine you the Queen of Autumn would have a million and one things to say about it! We miss you here in Michigan! ER wants to vido cam with you so let me know when you're up to it. She misses Godmommy!

I was reading your poem that you wrote a few days ago and was thinking I haven't seen you up on the blog lately. I hope you are okay!! Be good to yourself. Sit back, relax and spoil yourself.
