Good morning. Well, let me just say that whatever this nasty bug is that has caught me good, it certainly is wicked! I am now on a new stronger antibiotic, and I certainly hope that this one does the job. Lest I forget, I want to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and words. I am so blessed to have so many wonderful friends.
And, God bless my children, they are tenacious. (I surely hope they got this from their mother!) Daughter Deanne has been watching over me like a mother hawk. Thursday she gave me an ultimatum. "Either you call the doctor and make an appointment for Friday, or I'll come over and drive you to the hospital." Her exact words were just a tad bit stronger, but you get the idea.
I called and got the appointment, thank goodness. If I hadn't, I would probably be in the hospital by now as the infection was getting very close to pneumonia. I really don't need this! Now I'm on a different, stronger antibiotic. I surely hope this one can do the job and get me back up and running again. Thank you Deanne. I love you.
I'm getting ready here to make a cup of coffee. It will be my second one since this bug knocked me down this last time. Yesterday's cup of coffee tasted like nasty dish water. I'm hoping for something a bit better with this morning's cup. I'm even going to try a bowl of Raisin Bran cereal this morning. My appetite this past week has been on the scarce side. But it appears to be coming back today. I'm hoping this is a good sign.
Have any of you been watching the night sky lately? The moon has been showing off it's glamorous side. Night after night it has been just gorgeous! I missed out on so many great photos ops, but these past two nights were just too much to pass up. So, I bundled me up nice and warm, and was outside on Saturday morning around 2 a.m. and this morning at 3:15 a.m.
My hands are a bit shaky but my photos were still pretty good. Here's a couple from Saturday morning.
This is a closeup taken while the clouds were passing over the moon, followed by the same closeup that I used "Auto color, contrast and tone" in Photoshop to show the moon a bit clearer.
This was a gorgeous bright moon with a large aura about it. Probably that's because of the clouds, I don't really know. I just know that it was such a beautiful sight.
While I was outside taking these photos, this is what my handsome little guy was doing. Gosh, I just don't ever get tired of taking his photograph.
I have some nice shots from this morning, but I'll save them for tomorrow. However, I do have one amazing shot to share with you. This was the first shot that I took this morning of a bright start up over my driveway. This first shot is the original.
And this is what it looks like when I apply "Auto color, contrast and tone" in Photoshop. You can actually see the star. I've put an arrow pointing to it. I'm thinking that all the other dots are smaller stars. What do you think?
Well that's it for now. I'm beginning to peter out, and I want to try my coffee and cereal. I also have lots of catching up to do with my blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
