Fall Leaves

This is the first time in days that I've gone out beyond my mailbox...all the way to...the front yard! Jimmy and I have pneumonia so we've pretty much barred all of the doors and windows waiting for the horseman to come by hollering "Bring out yer dead!"

Well, the huge tree in the front is losing its leaves and I haven't posted anything in days so, in despirate need for a little fresh air, I went out for 5 minutes and took a couple of pictures. Most of them turned out awfully blurry, hard to keep a steady hand when you're coughing your lungs out. But I managed to find a few red ones to press and use in my crafts.

That little excursion to the front yard exhausted me, though. So I'm back to my couch to watch Ellen.

I've been wondering if everything was ok. Sorry to hear you've been so sick. Ellen is good medicine. Hope you're on the mend.

Hi Cate,
Thanks for the well wishes. I think we're slowly on the mend...the coughs aren't as violent as they were and we're both on antibiotics so we're counting on being in tip to shape for Thanksgiving!
