|a gift from our daughter-in-law and son|
I'm not ungrateful, but it's been a miserable week. Not only have we gotten the much needed snowfall, but then add a week of sick, sick, sick. Do you have it in your area? We have had nasty colds/flu go throughout the house. Our throats are raw from coughing, our mild fevers have broken, but none of us have an appetite. So, tell me this~how can one person eat nothing solid, only drink lemon water, hot tea and chicken broth for the past 3 days, and still put on a couple of lbs.~not fair!
At least there is one thing I never tire of and that is the site out my kitchen window of my red barn standing proud in the white snow scene, but seriously, the snow can melt now.
Also, I can do without the rains, ice, then snow that pounds the windows in the early morn.
I hope you all are not having to deal with any of this...
shame on me, for the east coast has been beaten down with more than these few inches. So far we only have about a foot of snow, but our snowbanks are piling up wherever the plow can push it.
For that, the GrandLoves are grateful. The next visit will make snowforts and tunnels of fun. Maybe, if the snow is right, a snowman.
On the warmer side, my sister, her hubby and their daughter drove to TX to see our youngest sister. I'm sure they are enjoying some weather on a more pleasant side, even if it rains, at least they will be able to enjoy a reprieve from our 6 months of winter in the north. I'm sure they are having a great time without us suffering the wrath of the flu and cold. I am so happy they could make the trip and spend time with baby sister.
This week can only get better. The air is supposed to warm, the sun promises to shine on and off all week and the roads will be passable.
That's a good thing because, as miserable as we are, there are appointments to keep, hands to shake and babies to kiss...no, we are not politicians but the doctors sure do love to see us come.
and now, just because I can, I share out of a daily calendar:
A house without a garden is a house with no foundation at all, a house subject to all the hazards of life. But a garden with no house is a garden with no soul. Fernand Lequenne
Finish your outdoor work and get your fields ready;
after that, build your house. Proverbs 24:27 NIV
on the selfish note:
( I wonder, does that mean my sunroom will be built this spring? )
And with that, grow and prosper.
Have a grand week!
