Bed please!!!

Image credit: Sheryl's Originals

I'm literally forcing my eyes open today. I started my muscle relaxants last night and woke up this morning with my neck feeling MUCH better but the drowsiness is still here, I am one of those people where if medication says "MAY cause drowsiness", to me it means it "WILL cause MAJOR drowsiness and you WILL be using toothpicks on your eyelids to keep them open". I'm already wishing it was bed time and keep imagining laying down, pulling the covers over my weary body and drifting off into a nice cozy slumber. *sigh* Thank you all for the prayers, I can feel them at work and I truly appreciate every single one of you.


It's been a while since I've shared sky photos so I have 2 for you today.....I was outside with the kids admiring the Lemon Tree again when I took them.



Now did you know that the Lemon Tree has thorns and they are SHARP???? I had no clue until I accidentally brushed up against it with my arm and YIKES that hurt.

Are those not huge thorns? I thought only rose bushes had them but I was clearly mistaken, I can't tell you how much this little tree has educated me.

The lemons are all gone, I've made the lemon bars and some lemonade, the next ones that fall off the tree will be used in a Lemon Meringue Pie - Curt's favorite. Thank you all for the tip on the issue of Taste of Home Magazine with all the lemon recipes, I went out and bought it yesterday so I have plenty to choose from.

I've slacked off on my reading, this neck pain was not helping either because it hurt to look down at the book or to even keep it in one position for longer than a few minutes, but I miss my books.

I'm hoping to get back into them this week, we'll see how this goes, I don't want to push things just because I feel a little better.

The next book on my list to read is Katherine the Virgin Widow by Jean Plaidy, can't wait.

Well I wish I could stay and chat more but I'm drowsy and sore still so I'm going to fix lunch for Nicholas and I and see about taking a short nap.

Have a wonderful wednesday and please don't forget about the Slow Cooking Thursday tomorrow.

Blessings,

I'm so glad you are getting some relief though. Even if it's a wee bit too much, in one aspect. ,-)

Gentle hugs...

I had the opposite problem last night. I took pain killers for my back and couldn't sleep. This morning I looked at it and it's full of caffeine!

Susanne said...

Glad to hear that the meds are helping the pain.

Lovely sky pics. There's a blog somewhere that hosts a weekly sky pic Mr. Linky. I'll have to look and let you know.

I hope you're feeling better! Still amazed about that lemon tree you have, how fun....but I didn't know they had thorns like that! Yikes.

Bonnie said...

Ah yes ... the drowsy pills !! I'm like that too. For me it's more like ... take the pill, wake up on the kitchen floor 6 hours later ! ha ha. Not that drastic ... but I get what you're saying !! I hope your neck continues to get better !! It's no fun not being 100% !!!

Feel better Sandra - I have soooo much empathy for you and can really appreciate how the muscle relaxants are helping. So sleep well.

Good Morning Sandra,
"PRAISE GOD" that is was only a sprain muscle. I do hope the pills start working on your soon. I sure could use something to make me sleep. LOL. I have been awake all night. I am having my coffee now. I will get me some sleep when I take the girls to School later on. I had no idea that Lemon Trees had thorns on them either. I only thought Rose Bushes had thorns. LOL. I guess I learn something new everyday. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Glad the meds are making you feel better, hope they get you back to normal really soon. Bummer on being so sleepy and drowsy though, I always hate that with certain meds. But pain-free is so much better :)

Great pictures, and wow, I had no idea that lemon trees had thorns. Those suckers look big and prickly!

Take care and have a great day :)

Hi - I've enjoyed reading your blog. To share the love with others I've tagged you in mine!

Oh my! Me too! I'm on some tablets that 'may cause drowsiness' and I just cannot get out of bed in the morning It's like someone made me into lead during the night. Throughout the day my body's saying "just have a little snooze, just have a little snooze..."

Sorry your shoulder's still bothering you.

Hugs and love
