Rain; Migraine; Cheeseburger Macaroni

It’s been raining a lot lately. Thunderstorms, warnings, flash flood watches, etc.

Last year it was like this around now. Both in 2012 and this year we had rain on the 4th of July, but windows of no rain opened up to let us do our fireworks in the evening. That is so awesome!

July is the mid-point of the year. Both my husband and I were born in July. I consider it a really good month since it was the only month always free and clear of school entirely, so summer, so holiday and so free.

The promise of the rest of the year being great is ahead. Nothing is impossible.

I have had a migraine since yesterday. I woke up with signs of it on the 4th and battled it all day. I had it well enough beat down to function outside with the fireworks (the most fun there is!) but was miserable afterward.

I was able to get to sleep after midnight, woke up sometime after 7AM. Didn’t feel so bad, took some meds (over-the-counter) just in case. Get up, get coffee, within a half hour, here it comes rearing it’s ugly head again. It wasn’t gone. It was backbuilding.

I felt so sick and miserable all morning. Nothing touched it. I forced myself to eat some macaroni and cheese and felt SOME better, getting an appetite for it as it heated up. Otherwise I had hardly eaten anything all yesterday and today.

I was still battling it later on this morning and into the afternoon, but now that it’s early evening I feel much better, but I do feel sensitive and like it’s only letting me catch my breath. I need to find more meds. Then hopefully it’ll let me eat dinner, my  recipe:

It’s really good. My daughter is making it (for the first time all by herself, for me.) Thank you!

This is why I put some recipes on this blog. I need to do more of them.

Winter Weather in the South

It’s March 1st and we are having our first real “Winter Storm” of the year. It’s been Spring-like for a while, many things are blooming. It’s been raining since Friday night (and had some lightning/thunder as well) –off and on, and the ground is mushy and over-wet, even more than that in places, deep puddles and near rivers in places in the backyard … but now it’s different. The temperature is 41 degrees F. out on the front porch, and the “rain” is now frozen granules. It’s collecting on roofs, play structures, decks, etc. thus far, since the air temperature is above freezing, but I do project that the temperature will be falling, it “feels” like that, and so it is. (Experience shows this as thus.)

Our ornamental cherry tree (in the backyard) has been blooming for over a week, but just getting near peak after the rain from a whole day, and now (with this freezing stuff) we’ll just see if we get to see the tree in full peak bloom for a nice photo with the sun shining and the sky nice and blue … 🙁

Update: It’s been snowing, from big flakes with granules of snow for a bit, then more BIGGER flakes, then to all bigger traditional first snow flakes, dropping heavily … to full out snowing, to now snowing thickly for a long while, snow is building up … it’s 2:13pm and it’s snowing thickly in the South, First snow in over a year, it didn’t snow in 2008 at all here. Can’t quite recall if it snowed at all in Dec. 2007, I don’t think it did, and I can’t recall when it really did snow this much in years here, not since the children were much younger, this is really nice. Usually we have an ice storm, not a nice snow storm. 🙂
