Not for my grandkids to walk through you don’t. Out!

Rain is coming, nine days of it, after a mostly-dry February. Hallelujah.

Which also means that since I was feeling a lot better and the time was very short, I spent about two hours yesterday yanking out hundreds of weeds by the roots before that water lets them re-anchor. Before, the plants weren’t big enough to reliably pull clear to the taproot, the leaves would just tear off. I’d tried.

Okay, the answer to that is to use a trowel but that’s harder on my knitting hands.

I got the huge yard-trimmings bin half full and snapped this photo before calling it a night. I’d made decent progress, at least.

And then I spent today feverish and achy and mostly asleep and I just barely managed to get fluids down–the Crohn’s wanted in on the fun. Speaking of which, if the MAP vaccine currently in trial succeeds I am going to be first in line the first day and it would be SO cool to have a cure!

Anyway, re the germ relapse, I totally earned it but I’m still glad I got those weeds out. Some had already started to grow their stabby Hades heels.

I do hope this is a possible cure. Feeling bad that it did not come in time for my son. I remember when stomach ulcers were “caused by stress” until it was discovered that they were caused by a bacteria.

Thank you for the photos of weeds instead of blossoms. It gives me a tiny bit of help in waiting for spring to make it to Minnesota!

I pray you are feeling better today!

Thank you for beautifying our virtual world. I, too, am eager for spring to show up. Sooner than later, now. 🙂
