The Sunday of the prairie fire, we spotted a number of the above flowers; I learned on this blog they are called "pasque flowers" and is also known as the "Easter flower" (ah, and there we were, witnessing it on Easter).

Still fully unwell, though I am proud to say I have been able to maintain a Gatorade for the past forty minutes. You see, I cannot drink Gatorade when I am well as I always associate it with this kind of illness, only as a child. And I was finally able to gather enough pathetic strength to take a shower, and if you know me at all, you know not taking a shower for that long is a true indication of being unwell. When we camp, I have a hard time not-showering, and usually, we book sites with showers. This does not bode well if we ever want to tackle the Boundary Waters.

I am now going to attempt a banana, which I discovered is supposed to be good for an upset stomach while doing a google search. I have to tell you, there were more websites on a dog's upset stomach than a human's...

Think BRAT - Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast.

I think I'd have to say no on the applesauce... just the thought of the burn on the way back up gives me shivers.

I got sick once in high school immediately after eating an apple - NEVER again. So painful!

Hope you're feeling better.

The BWCA is worth the absence of showers, trust me. You can always jump in a lake!

Hope you feel better soon :-)
