I have been sick since last Tuesday. I was in bed for two days with a fever and feeling lousy. I went out Saturday night to celebrate the launching of my husband's boat and I was getting hoarse and kept talking so now I have laryngitis. I am finally going to the doctor tomorrow. I think I need some antibiotics. I used to wish for laryngitis in high school when we had to do oral reports. I have never had it before. Anyway -- here is a little bouquet of violets I picked in our yard. They are in a tiny porcelain vase that belonged to my mother.

Oh, I am so sorry to hear that you are sick. Get to the doctor and get on some should start feeling better soon. Also, drink hot tea with lemon and honey...great for your throat. :)

Feel better soon!

Pretty pic of the little violets ~they are in my yard too!
Sorry to hear you are sick~the same thing happened to me, I got sick Feb.14th had a dry cough for almost 2wks. then thought I was better & second wk of March dry cough was back worse,& I got laryngitis~first time I've ever had it..took 14 days to get my voice back~hope to never get it again!( In highschool I wished for it too) I didn't go to the Dr. even though everyone wanted me to..I googled laryngitis & got some tips, the one that helped the most was drinking hot tea with lemon & honey, & warm water with honey & lemon, the honey really soothed my throat & helped me get my voice back with out antibiotics.
Feel better soon!!

I'm late getting around so I hope by now you are feeling much better and well on the road to recovery.

Your violets are so sweet and pretty! Mine aren't blooming just yet but it shouldn't be long now.

Regarding the poke salad mentioned on my blog and in your comment, you can Google "poke salad" in the images and there are several good photos of the live plants so you should be able to tell if it's the same greens you see people gathering in your area.

Have a great weekend! :o)

Love and hugs,
