I’m taking a break from posting this week. Because while the Sweetie Pie and I have been very, very hard at work at creating beauty in and around our home, the hard work has not created beauty in my colon. Yes, you did read that correctly. My colon is not beautiful.

This is my polite way of saying, “My colitis symptoms are acting up because I’ve totally overworked my body in the past three weeks and now it is demanding rest, and as much as I want to show you all of the photos on my memory card and plant snapdragons in the top of rain barrels and share all about the new meadow in our front yard….I just can’t.” I’ll be lying low for a few days, but at least I have a lovely garden in which to take my ease.
