Under the Weather

Things have come to an abrupt halt here at our house. The hubs has caught the flu and I am praying I don't catch it. Thank God for Clorox wipes. I have wiped down every surface he has touched. He is feeling a little better today but we have had 2 days of sleepless nights, fever, stuffy nose and coughing. Is it just my man or does every man act 2 years old when they get sick? I have ran my legs off getting things all through the night and have literally bought every flu medicine on the market. The house is in utter chaos.............he had to go to the store to do some paperwork so I had a chance to straighten up and sterilize. I haven't worked any since he has been sick and I am hoping to get back in the swing of things tomorrow.
Don't get me wrong I don't believe in the theory that man evolved from ape but sometimes things the hubs does makes me wonder. For example instead of getting up from the recliner to throw his used tissues away he throws them down in my magazine basket. This morning I found a pile of them on my new Taste of Home magazine! GEZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ MEN!

A Hungry Visitor

My sister shared this pic with me this evening and I just had to post it! It's of a possum in search of something to eat. Some folks consider these guys vermin on intruders; however I think he is adorable! Lol, I love his big pink nose.

Snowy Weather

This is what it looked like outside my backdoor this morning. A wintry wonderland. We had some treacherous weather with snow and ice mixed. And unfortunately our school system really dropped the ball and didn't cancel school. There were school bus accidents and stranded motorists. We also heard of a tragic story on the news of a local woman whom was pregnant that lost her life. Your life can truly be over in just a blink of an eye.
I needed to do some errands today but I am TERRIFIED of driving on slick roads; so needless to say I opted to stay in. Hoping you are all safe and warm today.

New Designs

Hi everyone! I have been working on new designs for spring. But I had to do one more winter design before it was over. So this is my new snowgirl I just listed on ebay. Seems its hard for me to come up with spring designs when its nine degrees outside! But I must admit I do love the cold weather; not so much for my poor little animals outside. But for myself I love it! Gives me a good excuse to snuggle up with Daisy and Odee on the couch and watch movies. Which is my family's favorite past time; we do this several nights a week. And you have to have popcorn with a movie! Speaking of good movies; I just watched September Dawn and I really enjoyed it. It's worth renting. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
