Things are getting back to 'normal'

Lest's see...........Monday DH found he had pneumonia but his H1N1 is gone! Hoorah - thank you Lord. His dr told him to go out in public and eat lunch, since he hadn't been out in almost 2 weeks. The pneumonia held on pretty hard but I think he's finally kicking it.

We went to Boise to his RA doctor and that appointment went well - he gets to lower one of the gout meds.
We met my folks there, had 2 nice meals out, watched the Boise State and Oregon Ducks game - it was ugly!, got DS's birthday present, found some new exercise shoes, Mom needed dress shoes for her 50th class reunion next weekend, and they went on to a cowboy gear show in Winnemucca. And..........we got the new saddle. It's beautiful - I will post pictures soon!

We stayed another night as DH was very tired - looked for some tomatoes and berries (which we found) and then headed home. On the way home we found some choke cherries and elderberries in the mountains - so we stopped and picked as many as we could before we ran out of light.

DS was home enjoying some time off - much needed time off. He got to lazy around for a few days and actually sleep in - at least to 8am. Ha.

DH has a few good hours, then several not so good hours, and so it goes. He is ready to be over all of it.

I am juicing elderberries tonight, have over 1/2 gallon of juice. They make good jelly and pancake syrup. The choke cherries I will juice tomorrow, as well as put up 100 pounds of tomatoes.

Not much news, lots of rambling - but I'm very thankful that my sweet husband is feeling a little better. Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend.

Glad to hear your DH is rid of the H1N1, but poor guy! Pneumonia?! Bless his heart, hope he feels 100% better soon. Mmm, now you've got me hungry for some pancakes with berry syrup. :) Might just have to make some this morning and pretend we've got your fresh made syrup to go on them. Have a great Monday!

Mercy sakes! You guys have just been slapped with yuk! Hopefully that good mountain air and those fresh berries will make DH a whole lot better! So sorry he's been so ill.

I am sooooo glad D. is on the mend. Thank the Lord that you and K. didn't get it.

I have to confess I am envying those berries! We did get some mountain apples and peaches on our trip and they are heavenly.

Oh No! Poor DH...praying for complete healing soon!!! Sounds like a fun short trip anyway. Is it getting cold up there? We are having so much rain here and cool temps...its unbelievable! Take care.
