An Unproductive Week

This week has been wasted, hardly anything done at all because I've felt so tired and I don't know why.  I did get two more Ohio Star blocks made and some more cut out.
This is more the look I want and I'm pleased with how the colours go together.  I kept waiting for this tiredness to go off but it hasn't so far, I could have got more blocks sewn up if it had.
I did a bit of baking and made an apple and cinnamon cake, no picture because it's about all eaten.  In my quest for a cake suitable for a diabetic I tried a cookie recipe.  They don't look much like cookies to me, they tasted more like a scone and my friend tried one with low fat spread and said they were acceptable but I think she was just being kind!  They had no fat in them and the granulated sweetener.
There is a bit of cheerfulness in the garden
Miniature daffodils
Primulas that I took out of the vegetable plot and just roughly stuck in this tub, they are doing well
I love the colour of this pulmanaria.
No gardening got done again, it's been quite a wet week, we have had intermittent sunshine though.  My broadbean seedlings are now outside in the mini greenhouse and my tomato seedlings are doing well but are a bit stalky.
I hope I recover from this tiredness soon, next week is going to be a bit of a challenge.  I have to be out of the house by 8 am on Monday and I'll probably be away every day for the rest of the week.  I haven't had to do this for several years and I'm not looking forward to it!!!

Sorry you're not feeling like yourself, Ann. That happens to me this time of year, too. Seems I inevitably wear myself out trying to get it all done. It frustrates me when I can't do the things I want to! Oh, well. Take the weekend and rest so you'll feel better next week. I've been drinking green tea with ginger lately, and it seems to make me feel better. Tasty, too. : ) Melissa

My daffs also started out small, and then reached almost 30". Now their run is done, as my garden is in Texas, and our days are sometimes reaching 80°.
