Dear Diary, spring has arrived and I got sick!

Tulips as of April 3rd...
I think this tulip is planning on being red.

Oh dear...I have never been away from my computer this long...while at home!  
I had a fever of 39°C (102.2℉) and was COMPLETELY delirious.  
The doctor says (since it wasn't the flu) that the fever came from an infected throat...rrrgh.

I was supposed to go to work on Saturday and Sunday but that was impossible!  
Everyone at the new office was pretty cool about it...they think it is because of the stress on the job.  I have NO IDEA!  I just noticed that on Friday night that I did not feel like reading! AND that food did not taste that good!

While I was in "Tulsa's Never Never Land"... a few things seemed to have happened here in Japan... 
The pro baseball season started, North Korea fired a missile that flew over northern Japan,
I turned 38, and flowers started blooming like crazy...

a block away from where I live there is a young peach tree...
Speaking of peaches! From my very talented friend Peach, who lives in northern Kyushu:
Aren't the cherry blossoms lovely?  I need to go grocery shopping today...let's see if I can come home with some pictures of the flowers in my area! (Kansai)

So much catching up to do but I am getting much better, thank you!

Hi Tulsa,

Happy recent birthday Tulsa, so sorry you were sick for it. Will you plan something nice to do now?

Blossoms everywhere, my daughter in Tokyo is posting lovely shots too. They spent a few days in Osaka and Kyoto.
take care...keep warm...

I noticed you were not blogging and was wondering what happened. Glad you are better now!

I had a very, very bad throat infection just three weeks into my new job two years ago and, in retrospect, it was definitely because I was stressed (without realizing). I hope you will adapt quickly to the new environment.

And happy birthday :)

Delwyn, thank you! No plans yet except to get back into the groove of things...I would enjoy a picnic though! I checked out your daughter's pictures, they were lovely!

Jelica, thank you too! I guess it is the stress of a new work place after all! wow...I thought I was a bit more "tougher" than this...oh well ;-)
