Haves and have nots



So yeah, the new medication was a barrel of laughs (not really)
and I'm off it now. My doctor seemed concerned about the side effects
and despondent in the face of finding a new drug for me to try. But I'm ok.
I will have to reassure her next time we meet - there is no cure for Borderline.




There has been a scent in the air these days, something that reminds me of France.
It's not just the lavender, it's the heat - it makes the soil and leaves smell a certain way.
I walk around the garden, without pants, alone in the Universe for a brief moment.
My house and garden plans are ever changing, my to-do list ever expanding.






We've had lots of rain the last week, which made the garden happy after the long drought.
The sunflowers are almost 6 feet tall, just about to start developing flowers.
Everything is green and lush, creating a bird-song filled bubble around me. 






 Last but not least:
The party we have all been waiting for has finally been announced!
You know it will be fabulous, because the amazing Vanessa always goes all out.

  1. I'm sorry the meds aren't working. I know the feeling. My own gut meds are making me a bit bloated and keeping me from the toilet (TMI?). But I can't stop them yet. They take some time to work. We'll see. I hope you doctor finds something to help you deal with your symptoms. I'm feeling a bit reassured because you are walking around your garden with no pants. That's a sign of good health in my book. ;-D

    And yay for fanciful partying!

    1. As I told you before, I am not a TMI kind of girl (unless it's my mom talking about my parent's love life, 'cause I am seriously having to work that shit through in therapy...).

      'No pants' is kind of my thing :)

  3. *hugs * finding meds that work and don't make you sick is so hard. I really hope they find something for you soon. Your garden looks beautiful!!! And your Kitty looks happy. I just hope the magpies don't bother him too much.

    1. I have partied for several years now and it's always a blast, you should totally join.

      I have been trying to find out about the Canadian postal strike - are things resolved now?

  7. Really crossing my fingers so they can find a med that works to you. Please, take care. ♥

    Also, I love your garden pictures. It looks like you did build a little paradise of your own. I wish I could enjoy my own private garden, I love nature but can´t deal with all the strangers crowding parks, lakes and beaches at this time of the year...

    1. I was very lucky to get the chance to move out here, away from the people and the ugliness of the city. Though even while living in an apartment I was always crazy about plants.

  8. Your garden looks so lush and green and lovely! I agree with Violette B., it seems like your own little piece of paradise. I hope that the rest you get there lets you keep your head up during the bad times of your disease... *hugs*

    1. Thank you! Though don't be fooled, this paradise comes with a crumbling roof, a moldy basement and breaking one's back from weeding :)

  9. Sending love ... lots and lots of love.

  10. The flowers look great. Most of my garden died because of the heat. Oh lovely sunning kitty.

    Svar
    1. Oh no, I'm so sorry! I know you live in a hot dry place. Here I lose plants to floodings and cold damp winters. I hope you can salvage some of your beautiful garden.

  11. The human mind and the brain chemistry are such complex things. I hope your doctor finds soon another better medicine for you to try! :)

    1. They certainly are. I hit a low point after hearing her disappointment on the phone. I have basically tried them all now.
