All that down time did me in ~~

Oh my, I think I was not meant to have that much down time. Although it was wonderful, this past Tuesday was the start of a cold for me. I honestly have not been sick in quite a while when it comes to cold or flu. I have been very lucky. I don't like being sick. But who does?

It all started with Nicole the week before, and then George got it and he was even out of work this week for two days. That NEVER happens. The man never misses work. He was down and OUT! Then it was my turn. Now I'm afraid I gave it to Linda.  Today is the first day I'm feeling somewhat human. Of course at night I always get achy again. I'm hoping I've seen the last of that!

So again, I missed the hook in. I couldn't drive a car even if I wanted to that day. I was on the couch from morning till night.  But I heard it was a great turnout again. Hmmm, I'm thinking maybe there is a pattern there. I'm not there and everyone shows up!  Now watch, I'll go next week and no one will show up lol. I'm so happy it was a great day for them. Wish I could have been there to get pictures to share with you. 

Creativity has been the last thing on my mind lately. Actually  haven't even thought about it. Started to read some blogs this morning and I'm amazed at how much everyone is getting accomplished. I'm hoping the feeling will come back soon and I can pick up a hook or needle.

Today will be a day of disinfecting for sure and then cleaning up some. I haven't done anything in days. I did have to venture out to the grocery store yesterday since we were plum dry out of some groceries. As soon as I stepped out into the cold air, I started to cough. That wasn't fun. But I made it there, and back and on the couch I went. It's snowing out now. Supposed to get 1-3 inches they are saying. Ugh! I'm so sick of this  snow already.  My friend Joan said she saw 2, count them, 2 dead skunks on the road, and SHE says that means an early Spring!!!  I'm counting on that Joan :).  Now, if someone would just shoot the groundhog, it won't see it's shadow and we WILL have an early Spring. I haven't quite figured that one out yet.  All those camera's, LIGHT's, etc, pointed at this hole on the ground. You don't THINK that there is going to be a shadow?? LOL. Ok, I'm still sick, bare with me....  I really just want Spring.... now!

Well, I've sat my limit here at the computer. Time to get off, have a bite of something to eat for breakfast and then rest some before getting started on something around here.  I certainly hope all of you are staying healthy. Hopefully my next post will have something creative to share with you.....

Enjoy your weekend  friends ~~

Shoot the groundhog Kathy! Good idea! Love that!
It's not easy being down and sick. Like George, Dave has been sick this week also with cold and coughing and headaches! He finally stayed home yesterday from work........ he NEVER misses work..... so you know he was sick! So far I haven't got it....I think it's because I'm breathing in so much vinegar fumes from all the wool dyeing I've been doing, vinegar is cleansing. LOL
Take it easy for a few more days yet, you don't want a relapse!

Hi Kathy,
Sorry to hear you've been sick! That coughing stuff sure hangs on for ages. And this crappy weather is no help!
Try to get lots of rest. I know it's not YOU to sit around but it's the one thing that helps get rid of the illness.
Take care. Hope to see you soon!
