Spring Fever

Spring Fever

(taken last April~except for the crop, it is straight from the camera)

I am exhausted and lazy and achy and drippy. Seriously, my house is a messy disaster and I have zero motivation. I feel like I am wading through molasses. I thought I was getting sick but then I noticed all the buds and blooms around our southern city. Every Spring, I feel completely drained. I had a doc tell me it was allergies. Apparently, they can make you want to do nothing but sleep or laze around. Some call it Spring fever. I sure hope I can get some energy back soon. My to do list just keeps growing. Has Spring reached your part of the world yet?


  1. I'm sorry you are being effected by the new blooms...I get migraines during the spring...but please please please Kim...can you send me some spring weather : ) a few buds??? I will suck up the migraine just to see a flower or two.
    This is a beautiful picture and the pink is so vibrant!!!

  2. That is a beautiful picture! BTW, I didn't get a chance to comment ysterday, but I LOVE the idea of the striped in Kate's room. Can't wait to see pictures.


  3. I hope you feel better soon! I went for a run outside yesterday for the FIRST time in A LONG time...and I LOVED the Spring weather and I felt great. UNTIL...2 minutes after I got back. I have been sneezing and have a stuffy nose from all that Spring Fresh air! It must be allergies! something bad with the good I guess! :)

  4. I would give anything for a little Spring weather. I do see a robin in the tree outside my window and it's raining instead of snowing but that's as close to Spring as we're getting around here.

    How about I come visit you and enjoy some Spring? I'll even help you tackle that to-do list! :)

    P.S. I had lunch with Bridget yesterday.

  5. Spring arrived yesterday in NC!! It was 73 degrees! But, the blooms are coming and along with it are the allergies that so many suffer with. It seems worth it though. Bring on the sunshine! (Beautiful picture!)

  6. Oh my goodness yes. We live in an area where all of the Cherry trees are blooming and the wind is blowing all of the pollen our way. We're going through so much Kleenex in our home.

    Take care.

  7. Same here -- we need some warm and sunny weather! Beautiful photo!


  8. A resounding YES from Southeast Texas!! My onset hit me this past Saturday and it came on w/a vengance!! I managed to get up for work on Monday morning, however, by, lunchtime, I was completely drained! I made my way to the company doctor, I was given a shot and Rx for Zyrtec! The shot gave me momentarily relief, however, by 5pm it was back!!! I stop by the pharmacy, then headed home, showered, took two Zyrtec and climbed in the bed before 8pm!! Springtime ALWAYS wreak havoc on me!!!

    I'm feeling much better today. The stuffiness, itchy eyes, relentless sneezing, achiness, and flat out drained feeling has subsided tremendously! I feel like a new person.....for now...that is!!

    Hope you are feeling better!!

  9. BTW that picture is gorgeous!!!

  10. Love the picture! My zyzal keeps my symptoms from affecting me too much. Unfortunately, the boys are all on Zyrtec for the same reason. I'll take it for the warmer weather though!!

    Hope you feel better soon!

  11. I've never heard that explanation for Spring Fever but it sure makes sense.

    We have had a few beautiful days here and I want to do nothing but get outside. Needless to say, nothing is getting done inside but we are having fun at the park and eating water ice!

  12. We are in sinc...Check out my pink flower:)How is sweet Kate's mouth? Sherwin Williams angelic is a soft pink:) ,loved the blue bedding

  13. We are getting some beautiful spring-like weather here this week and I LOVE it! I am not a winter person at all! I do get the spring allergies, but if that's the trade-off for warmer weather I'll take it. I didn't get to comment on yesterdays post but I love what you've chosen to do in Kate's room.

  14. I live in Florida and I get the same way. I was told it was allergies too. Good luck We leave for China in 2 weeks I need to sanp out of it.

  15. Wow...what a gorgeous photo! Do you love your camera now that you have had time to get used to it? My d70s was dropped...and my amazing, expensive lens isn't working right...neither is my camera. It's been months...and I need a new one.

    I know how you are feeling. I'm pushing and pushing to get things done. I keep making myself little deals like 10 minutes of laundry...10 minutes of computer time. It's pretty sad!

  16. We have had a few days of spring, but I hear that it is quickly moving out!

    I feel your pain..... my "to do" list is a mile long and I feel that I have a million things started and nothing that it is completed.......frustrating to say the least.

    Hopefully you will be in better spirits soon!



  17. hi kim! it's coming!!! spring break is next week and like you, my house is a messy disaster too!!! and with my fast approaching trip to china i have to get myself into gear big time!! hope you feel better soon and get kate's room finished. God Bless!

  18. This is a stunning image Kim, perfectly composed. Love the color.

    Sadly Spring has not come our way yet, though the snow is finally leaving Wisconsin. I'd welcome some warmth but know it will arrive. And I feel your pain about the Spring fever thing, I get it every year too!

  19. I so have spring fever... see my blog too!

    Hope you get the energy back. As you and I both know, BASEBALL SEASON IS BACK!!! Go Will, Harry, Sumter and Jackson!

  20. OH my word, that image is stunning. I Have spring fever too. I feel draggy and nasty.


  21. Yesterday was like spring, warm sunny and beautiful and today was cold rainy and dreary! I am so ready for warm weather and blooms abounding but I also suffer with allergies when things start blooming.


  22. Love the detail in the picture, and what a beautiful color.

    I *think* spring has started to pop around here, but in NE you never really know....could wake up with a foot of snow tomorrow, and no one would think anything of it.

    Starting to see buds on the trees, and the birds are singing...I'm very hopeful:-).

    Hope your energy returns soon.


  23. I hope you feel better soon! Florida is definitely warmer. We even used our air conditioning last night! I think that all that we do catches up with us and causes us to be really tired at times. I had a few weeks recently where I literally felt sick I was so tired. Allergies don't help either. I hope you feel better and more energetic soon!

  24. your flower came on flicker yesterday it was so beautiful hate you feel badly!!!!

    Like Collen I get some wicked h/a's but sure am ready for spring!
    SURE hope you feel better too, KIM

    * Hugsz!*

  25. Actually, I have lived in Spring and Summer for the last eight months and not to complain but it gets old too:) lol

    But I am praying for Spring for all of you because I want everyone to get well in the states....it seems everyone is sick.

    I am praying for you and that you will make it through Lent and feel free and even closer to the Lord.

    P.S. I LOVE that thermos! And those materials...wowee kazowee...so gorgeous...oh how I miss Target;)


Thank you for your kindness.
