It's official.

It's all in my head. Well, my ears and my sinuses, actually.

The doctor says that in addition to the ear infection, there's a massive sinus infection, that's probably been brewing for a while. She suggested that if I wanted a repeat of the blinding headache and nausea and all, all I needed to do was take a cold shower. (I think I really like this doctor! She's funny and efficient!) So antibiotics, nasal sprays and such for me. And no swimming for a week, which sucks, as hot as it's supposed to get. But I'm relieved that it's something relatively benign. I was having paranoid visions of tumors and migraines forever.

And I have gorgeous, gorgeous red and yellow dahlias on my desk, ohno-san is gone for the rest of the week, and it's warm and sunny outside.

Life, overall, is good.

glad to hear it's curable ;-)
are they forecasting near 100degree temps in seattle or is pdx the only lucky winner?

i just cut the last of my StarGazer lilies. that leaves the Pixies, which haven't bloomed yet and then my lilies are done for the summer. next year, i'm definitely getting Casa Blanca lilies.

btw, i went to Heirloom Roses yesterday. it was a beautiful day, not real hot, so i decided to go. and of course, i purchased three roses:

rosa glauca -- bluish foliage with pink flowers and red hips (for the woodland section)
rosa bhutanensis -- bright green foliage with pale yellow flowers and orange hips (for the sunny bamboo section)
Darlow's enigma -- bright green foliage, continuous white blooms (for the border in front of the house)

all wild-looking brambly style roses... and, for being a sucker -- er, good shopper -- they gave me a free mystery rose.

Free roses are a good thing!
We're forcasted at 86 today, mid 90s tomorrow, upper 90s on Saturday & Sunday.

I wonder if the water department is in cahoots with the weather makers? I'm going to get out there early on Saturday to get some things repotted, but the front yard is just burning up. If we're there next year, I'm thinking it becomes xeriscape! :)

Rosa glauca is on my list! Maybe I can get to down that way before fall (where is the summer disappearing to!) and get some plants to overwinter...

well, it's damn hot down here, right now. temp outside in the shade is 86. sheesh. i moved all my trees into the shade, and gave them extra water around 11AM.

i've been hanging out, working on a new quilt design. my friends Dan and Elisheva just had a little girl, my sister-in-law Lisa is pregnant, and my friend Bitsy just turned 40... looks like I'm going to busy at the sewing machine through the end of the year!

Temperature's climbing...
It's 81 here now. Should shoot up again before 6 or so.

I'm thinking frozen drinks on the back patio sound good!

Re: Free roses are a good thing!

Oh man, sinus infections are not fun. I'll send you good nasal energy. :)
