Down with the flu

I know, your probably thinkin...MAN, these people are real sick like!! Normally we are a pretty healthy bunch, but the kids have been bringing it home from school one after the other!! I had just said to the hubs how great I felt that the two of us had managed to stay so healthy when the kids have been barfing, sneezing and coughing left and right. Well, knock on wood... the following day I fell ill. Next time I'll keep my mouth shut!!

Needless to say, I have been under the weather and therefore uninspired.
The girl lost a tooth and you can see she is very proud. I was grieving the loss of that tooth, as it means my baby is not such a baby anymore!! Once they get those big chompers in they look so grown up!

I ordered another apron from etsy. It's the pretty little white one with the little pink rose buds.
I think I like to look at them more than I like to wear them. Weird...I know.

I discovered an old school photo of my Mom. It almost got tossed in the trash. It was hiding in an old box of junk that I was going to toss out. I can thank the Hubs for for saving it. He couldn't bare to throw the box out until he new exactly what was in it. That's the pack rat in him.

My Dad gave me these three pocket watches. One belonged to my Great Grandfather, one to my Grandfather and the other to my Dad. I didn't know what to do with them, so I keep them on display. Every now and again the kids will wind them just to hear them tick.

I rearranged a few plates just for a change.

I filled this jar with what remained of our vacation sea shells. They scream summer to me!!! It's a much needed reminder that spring is just around the corner. Lordy!!! I can't wait to open the windows around here and air this joint out!!!!
Hope everyone is well. I look forward to catching up with yall!

Hope you get well soon. I also love aprons and I like to look at them more than wear them, too. They hang on a hook in my kitchen. My grandmother liked aprons, so I guess I get it from her, lol Madeline

Awww, she looks cute with the missing tooth. I hope you feel better soon and I'm with you on wanting some spring. I'm so ready!

Jen, sorry to hear you caught the flu. I need to be careful, because I've been telling everyone that my job as a preschool teacher has strengthened my immune system. I even slept right beside my husband last night, who had a sore throat and fever. My luck just might run out.

I hope you feel better, and I am amazed that you got so much done! :) Your home is lovely!

Girl I know what you mean. My husband and I have both been sick. No fun there! He's a teacher and brings those lovely germs home to me. Isn't that sweet? He loves sharing!

I love your pocket watches. I have one from my grandfather too. At least you have yours on display. Mine is in a drawer somewhere!

Hi Jen~
So sorry you all have fallen so sick! I can sympathize because I had the flu this weekend! It is truly the worst kind of sickness I think! I hope you feel MUCH better very soon!

I love your aprons! They are so adorable! :) And your house is looking so beautiful...what a great idea to put shells from your vacation in the jar!
Please take care, my friend, and get as much rest as you can! :)

I like aprons, too. Yesterday my 4yo granddaughter was helping me make chicken and noodles and wondered where her apron was! We were at my daughter's and I didn't have any there. Time to go apron shopping for her house!!

Have a great day, Denise
