Over and Out

For a while, about 24 hrs. worth, I felt like my head was being tossed around in one of these antique butter churns.
Not no more...it's over and out!
Feeling much better, and praise the Lord,
I wasn't looking forward to the full 10 days of this, 
whatever it is that's floating around the county.

Speaking of the butter churn,
I have one of those dandy's.
Oh, mine is not quite so pretty as the one above. 
Mine is missing one of the clamps on the top,
I'm sure Bill can fix that,
the grip on the handle is missing.
My guy can turn one of those on the lathe,
ya think?
Oh, wait, he doesn't have a lathe...
Oh brother, oh brother,
I'm calling on you!

My house is going to be full of youngsters, 
Grandsons and cousins, 
waiting to go ice fishing and sledding
with their Dads.
I'm staying inside with a good book 
while the house is quiet.   Maybe, just maybe,
I will mix up a batch of good old-fashioned cocoa
on the stove, for them, when they all return~
with marshmallows.

Have a great weekend!
Stay safe and warm.

I am sooooo glad you feel better and you were not sick for too long! And that hot chocolate sounds good!

REAL cocoa with marshmallows - now you are talking! That stuff they pass off as cocoa nowadays - I don't know!

Shug said...

sounds like TONS of fun!! Wish I were there!!

Gail said...

I think that is a wise decision...not ice fishing.

Paula said...

Isn't it nice that we can just admire the old things now and not have to use them? Enjoy your quiet time.
