A view to my life

I've been sick with allergies and a sinus infection.  I tried to wait it out until I could get better, but that didn't happen.  Yesterday, I went to my family doctor and he gave me two shots, a Z pack of antibiotics, some high powdered cough syrup, and made me a visit with the allergy doctor.  I tried to tell him that this stuff if seasonal and that I don't have allergies.  He just laughed and said "Oh yes, you do have allergies."  Frankly, I just have a problem accepting that I need another doctor.  Hopefully, I am on the road to recovery. 

I took some pictures of the ducks.  Aren't they beautiful?  Something got one of the ducks.  After viewing some scat (poop) we think it is a coyote.  We found some suspicious looking tracks as well.  When I went to feed the chickens, one of them had some feathers pulled off of its leg.  I'm thinking that maybe something tried to get it as well.  Hubs set the night camera up last night.  Hopefully we will see something. 

The chickens are enjoying their semi -built coop.  It still needs the nesting boxes on top of it and roofing.  You can see that Bruno, our cat, is enjoying checking them out.  At our former home, he would sleep in the chickens coop with them and the chickens loved him.

Hubs is busy clearing and planting his garden.  He killed a huge copperhead snake while clearing.   I got a few great shots of it.

I have been planting my containers full of summer flowers, and doing some yard work.  I sure enjoyed the cooler weather we had last week.  The morning sun was gorgeous shining through the clouds. 

Things have changed in the blogsphere, and I am trying to figure it out.  I'm not sure how to delete photos uploaded that I didn't like, but I will keep on trying.

Hope all of you are good.

Sorry you have been sick, but glad you finally went to the doctor. There's a bad cold thingy going around and hubby and I had it for a month. It was awful.

If you put up a picture of ducks then I can't see it. Just so you know.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. :)

This has been a bad year for allergies. I have been suffering a lot lately. Have been on a few rounds of antibotics and am just starting to feel better. I also tried allerga and it seems to work. Take care of your sweet self and those darling ducks.

Sandee, I posted the ducks pictures finally.

DeEtta, I have been coughing for two months. I have had a time getting well. The doctor told my hubs to use Allegra. I sure hope you are all better by now. You take good care of yourself.

I had an allergy attack that made my eyes swell up. Luckily it only lasted for an afternoon or so and it doesn't happen often.

Blogger says the changes are supposed to make things easier. I haven't noticed the easier part yet.

Hi Pam, looks like this allergy season has tough on many folks. My husband has been suffering terribly. Hope you get to feeling better.The duckies and chickies are so cute and the kitty too! I'm not much of an animal person but I do enjoy cute photos of them!

What in the world was blogger thinking about when they made all these changes? Sometimes I think I just can't keep up and then that ole stubborn streak of mine kicks in and I say to myself no way I'm going to let these kind of things do me in ha ha!

Good to hear from you as I've been kinda out of the blooger mode lately,
