LOOK! Spring has finally sprung at my house.

Last Sunday while everyone was at church, I gingerly snuck out to take a few pictures of my spring flowers. I didn't stay too long, because I can only be on my feet for about 7 minutes before the pain becomes to intense. But a for a few of the shots I just laid down in the lawn, so I was able to stay out a bit longer!

As for an update on how I am doing... well my Chiropractor seems to think I am doing well. I on the other hand want this to just hurry up and go away, NOW! But, lets me put it into perspective for you. I can now brush my teeth, use the bathroom, take a quick (and I mean lightning speed quick) shower, put away a few things here and there, get drinks for Lauren, fold part of a load of laundry, and walk through the house without feeling like I'm going to pass out from the pain. Of course, for you humorous ones, I don't do this all at once! I take a lot of breaks. When the pain gets bad I have to lay down until it goes away and if I do to much the time I can spend on my feet starts to diminish. But, two days ago, I made a double batch of biscuits for our dinner. I had to do it in three steps with a bit of resting in between, but I did it! It was great to be in the kitchen again.

Just keep me in your prayers.


  1. Beautiful flowers! And GREAT pics! You're so talented! What are the flowers in the first picture? So glad you are able to do more. I wish I could have eaten a few of your biscuits! love ya!

  2. Believe me I know how you feel. About once a year I get such a backache I use a walker and take baby steps. I know mine is because of weight. Lisa

  8. Here are the answers to the flower questions. The top picture is Grecian Wind Flowers. The bottom are Grape Hyacinths. I just love that I was able to get the bee on the flower. It just adds to the beauty of the picture.
