I hope you were able to get in bed with a good book. My kiddos are sick too and it sure takes a lot out of the mommy when they are sick. I'll be glad when spring gets here. Prayers for all the yuck-ies to be gone soon!

PS If you got to read a book what did you read?


Missing you.


Just started your simple life book. Good stuff! Sorry you have sickies there, hope all get better soon.
Tell me (if you don't mind) how you got to know blogger friends that were close in distance to you?

When my oldest was in pre-school, she would get that fever every once in a while. Nothing else. My guess was that she was fighting off something worse, and the fever was just her little body working so hard!

Who knows?! :)

Hope she's feeling better soon!


Hope that you got rest and a good night's sleep.
How is Emma doing now....I'll pray for her health. One or two slow days here and there give us energy to pop up back in full swing.
Take Care

I have a sick one home today too, Joanne. Hope yours is better soon and that you have a great bloggy lunch! I just got to speak at a retreat for a blog friend of mine and it's just the most fun thing....

Love your quilt by the way - I'm totally impressed. :)



I'm ready to crawl into bed with a good book, too. It's 2:48 in the afternoon here! The youngest is home with pneumonia. Everyone else is still coughing and hacking, including me. Oy. Dinner out with the girls tonight...yum...lobster bisque. Sure wish my taste buds were working!


How is Emma feeling today?? I'm sorry she's not been feeling well. Are you still up for us coming tomorrow??

Holly Smith

I can't wait to hear about your day long retreat!

See you Manana, mi Amiga!
