Sick In Bed

It's no fun to be sick in bed.
She's 7 years old and loves her
dolls and elephant collection
but she's just feeling too
poorly to play with them.
Maybe Mom will come upstairs &
rock with me for awhile
in the rocking chair.
Maybe she'll read to me or
sing to me softly.
Maybe she'll just scoot into
my bed next to me til I
fall asleep. That would make
me feel better.

Mom's exhausted after running

up & down the stairs all day

to take care of her daughter.

She's going to unwind with a

glass of wine , a few

chocolates & then check out

her new magazine . Afterwards

she'll go upstairs & sing her

sweetie to sleep.

Some Bedroom Pictures

The plates , pitcher, vanity tray,

powderbox , and small round

frame were all found during

my treasure hunting .

The dried hydrangeas are

from my garden.

Of course here's my Java again !

I was trying to photograph

the new pink and white ball

fringed quilt that I found last

week at an estate sale . The

lady charged me 50 cents.

My bedside table was given

to me and the cute cherub lamp

was a tag sale find for $5.00!

My beautiful lamp I found last

summer at a barn sale &

paid $5.oo for it.

***************

The wall paper you see in

the background , which I didn't like

when I first saw it ,was in the house

when we moved here & is in great

shape so I let it grow on me.

I like to pile on the quilts as you

can see !

My new pink and white ball

fringed has made it to the top

of the heap .

Another beautiful painted antique
plate and framed swan print were
also both found while out
treasure hunting.

I have a big old antique basket at

the foot of the bed that holds more

quilts , afghans, and extra

smaller pillows that I throw

into some lace edge and

embroidered pillow cases.

********

I'd rather put my room together

by hunting for pieces like I do

instead of shopping in a store.

I forgot to mention that it all

started with my headboard

which cost me $4.00 !

My Valentine's Gift

My beautiful white cyclamin that

my sweetie pie husband got me

for Valentine's Day. Of course

every time I go around the

house taking pictures Java has

to follow me and be part of it.

My sweetie also got me a very nice card &
then we spent the day together running
around and stopping here & there .
We finished our afternoon with a
nice dinner out.
This is what I spent the rest of the weekend with .
My cold/flu has now moved from my sinuses
and throat to my chest. I have a painful dry
cough & tomorrow I must go to work
because I have an all day company
"Professional Development Day".
Woo Hoo !

Isn't She Pretty ?

anyone else would take her in.

Valentine Gifts To Myself !

Well , not only did my pets make
me feel a little better yesterday
by staying with me on the couch ,
so did the sound of the UPS
truck.
I did not get off the couch but I
knew they were just outside my
door waiting for me.
*********
MY TWO NEW BALI BRAS !!
*********
I've been wearing this particular
style from Bali for years ,
they better not stop making them.
It's the only bra that fits my body
that I don't have to wrestle with.
I tried them on and instant comfort.
Nothing like a new bra that fits
to cure what ails you !!
All Cotton stretch & seamless.
No wires !
It doesn't get any better.
***********
Hmmmm, maybe when Bali
hears how much I'm pluggging
their product they'll send me a
couple more of my style in
40DD please !!??

So Here I Sit .......

Oh poor me ....... here I sit , it's
the day before Valentine's Day,
I'm sick. I have a bad cold,or flu?
I just feel yucky,sneezing,coughing,
tired,nausea,chills. Blowing
weird things out of my nose.
I'm sure my sweetie won't even
want to give me a Valentine
kiss for fear of all the germs that
lurk inside of me right now.
I wouldn't want to kiss me
either.
As soon as I post this I'm
lying down for a nappy poo,
on my couch with my
faithful Minnie & Java
by my side. They'll kiss me!
They don't care if Mommy has
GERMS.

Come Into My Kitchen

Come in and sit down for awhile.

Would you like a cup of coffee? I just took some
cookies out of the oven if you'd like to try them.

I also have some orange jello & some Ritz

crackers to munch on.

I was in the middle of making a salad for our

dinner tonight.

There's also milk & cookies on the table if you'd

prefer . The kids just finished eating ice cream

sundaes.

It's been so nice having company in my new kitchen.

We've been renovating for awhile now &

still have finishing touches to add here and

there. We need to put up some moulding &

finish decorating. Do you like my new

copper pans ? I love them , and I also got

the matching hanging kitchen tools which

come in handy right by the stove.

I'm going to wrap you a plate of cookies

to take home with you.

Stop by again , I love your company.

Sad News For "Home Companion"

Well , today I went to Mary Englebreit's
website to try and order her magazine
again. I've gotten this magazine on
and off through the years & love it !
************
I was upset to find out that their last
issue printed was the Dec./Jan. one.
I'm really going to miss this one.
I still have a bunch of my old
ones & love looking at them and
cutting out things for art projects.
But I really was looking forward to
some new ones.
We'll miss you Home Companion !
