A Short Note Of Apology.

This is the kind of weather we've been having.
Every day.


And since I took these photos I have been laid up with my back.
So this is me checking in.
And apologising for my absence, both here and on your blogs.
I miss you all!


These were taken on the same beach as the stormy ones a few posts below,
a beautiful cold, sunny morning as I waited to see the Osteopath and I thought I was better. 
But unfortunately I've been struck down again!

I promise to be back as soon as I can.

I'm so sorry, Ciara! I threw out my back in the fall, and it took me weeks to feel like a human being again, so I sympathize. Take good care of yourself!!

Your photos are just gorgeous. That last one makes my heart go pitter pat. xo Gigi

Having had a back issue a number of years ago...take it slow...don't get frustrated because of how long it takes to be your old self again...don't be shy to ask for help from your family...take care...healing thoughts your way!

Karen said...

Hope you are better soon! x
We are also having those cloudless blue skies, wonderful isn't it.
I'm loving your photographs and they look great, so much bigger on the page.

Oh, so sorry about your back. I've never really experienced the pain of a bad back, but my husband has and I know from watching him, it is no fun at all. Feel better soon!

I am so sorry to hear that you have been laid up, and hope that you are feeling yourself soon. What lovely weather! Except for today, we too have had some nice weather, and I am thoroughly enjoying the lighter mornings~
Can I tell you how much I LOVE that first book photo??? Did you take it? It is absolutely delicious (if books can be delicious that is...)
much love,
xx

Mimi said...

Sorry you're still laid up- must be terrible with little ones too.
I missed you, but assumed you were just busy.
Best wishes for speedy recovery.
Thanks for lovely pics.

Ah, crud.

It can take a few goes, sadly.

I hope that you're better soon. We all see an osteopath regularly and find it immensely helpful. Maybe you need a few more visits?

Martin H. said...

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Paddy said...

I can empathise with your experience.
Get better asap.

mise said...

Poor you, back problems are so debilitating. I hope everyone else is doing the chores and you are lying comfortably flat with some good books. Take care of yourself.

Dreamfarm Girl said...

I do hope you feel better very soon, and that the gorgeous blue skies speed your recovery.

gz said...

Hope you feel better soon.

Don't drive for an hour, at least half an hour after your osteo appointment (advice from mine!) and get some excercises to strengthen your back and front (to keep the balance)

Erin said...

Very pretty blue sky! We've been having beautiful days too in Arkansas.

Hope you feel better soon so you can enjoy the weather.

Hi dear Ciara! I like all your photos! You live near by beach!???

endofera said...

I know where you are at the moment...a seemingly endless tunnel of pain...and I also know where you will hopefully get to....there is always that wonderful light at the end of the tunnel to help you struggle through the pain!! Get well soon!!

Laura Hegfield said...

Such a beautiful sky...sorry your back is out...that is so painful I've had back issues since I was 20. Feel better soon:)

Bad backs are a bugger! I hope you will recover soooooooon.

Kato said...

I hope you are feeling better my dear!!

Be well xoxox

Circe said...

I'm so sorry you are having back problems! I REALLY FEEL FOR YOU. From one who has had them since I was a teen and broke my back, I toss out onto the table a few things that might SOMEHOW help... 1. Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulfate)soak: as long as you have someone to help you safely into and out of the tub.Use a lot-several cups. It pulls out toxins and zaps them before they reabsorb. Magnesium (or Calcium Magnesium) supplement can be similarly helpful. Here is a link to foods that are high in Magnesium... http://www.mgwater.com/rod09.shtml 2. Spring Allergies - seem to go hand in hand with my back problems (though it took me a while to connect the two) Even if not reacting typically to the new airborne things spring brings, (I don't)could this be the case for you in your body? Would it be worth it to try histamine blocker (like Benedryl) or extra vitamin C (antioxidant and natural antihistamine) and/or calcium (relaxes muscles when the body is deficient at all in calcium, can help neutralize acid...work well together)

Just desperately trying to share and help... Hoping you're on the mend and feeling better.
