10 minutes from home

The last few weeks have been a little crazy and stressful around here. My daughter had a recurring episode of pneumonia, but in her right lung. On top of that she was running a fever, bladder infection, muscle spasm pains in her back, and then hardly any sleep at all. To top it all off she had just started a new job; worked a week and a day, and now has been off for a week and a half. Still unsure whether she will have a job when she is over all of this mess. So I have been nursing her along and cleaning her house. Her hubby would make dinner when he got home unless I had already cooked something. Another trip to the doctor showed nothing had improved so stronger antibiotics were given. I have been loading her up with fruits, juices, veggies that are good for your lungs, and probiotics plus a few other herbs that can improve her immune system. Fortunately our doctor is super nice and has said that everything I have been giving her is a good thing. Hopefully this week she will improve, but the doctor did say it will be about six weeks before she feels normal again.
So, when hubby and our neighbors suggested a little fishing trip Saturday evening to the pond that is only 10 minutes away I jumped at the chance!


Neighbor Jan fishing and enjoying the view.

Well, I guess you are wondering if we caught anything, but the fish were just not biting that night. I didn't care though since it was very peaceful and relaxing, and by the time my head hit the pillow that night I was out with a good nights rest!!!

Well that last pic says it all - who needs fish, as long as you had time to relax and just enjoy the scenery!

I'm so sorry to hear of your daughter's health issue - having experienced pneumonia a few years back (now have had the vaccine so hope to never go though it again) I know how debilitating, and frightening, it can be. Sounds like you are taking good care of her though - great choice of foods.

Wish her the best and a speedy recovery.

I sure hope your daughter gets better fast! But the walk to the lake was a great detour! :)
