Last week I didn’t blog, for a very specific reason. I wanted to change everything up again, with new themes and ideas.
Then, Monster got sick, as many of you know. A 5 year old wants love’n and to be held when he is sick. So that through a monkey wrench in my plans. And let me tell you, he wasn’t just sick, he was SICK! Out of school for a week, meds from doctor and lots of love….and by the way, he is still getting over it!! Well, if that wasn’t bad enough Hubby and Aye got it too. Hubby’s philosophy is to work through most things, so he is still fighting it and is now – finally – on the tail end of it. Aye, well, she never did get a really bad case of it, just a little cough and a day or so of not feeling very good, not much.
And now, guess what? I have it too!! Saturday afternoon I started feeling it and it was – full on – by Sunday. My Doctor called in meds, which I am now on, and told me to stay home and rest for 4 -5 days! YUCK!!!!
To top off my sickly week – my internet has been giving me problems again. They are sending me a new ‘BIGGER – BETTER’ modem, it should be here today, but for the moment I am still at the whim of the internet provider!
But, I just HAD to tell you all about some things I received over the past couple of days!
First there are these canisters I received from paintingbyeileen. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL and PERFECT!!! I took this photo of them in my kitchen, but let me tell you, I think I might need to paint my kitchen to match them!! If you noticed I cropped most of the background out! Ms. Eileen, they are VERY beautiful and perfect in size and style! (you can click on the photo to see more – better photos)
Next on the list to show you…. my wonderful order from thepineconeteacup. Kris over at ApronsbyMeMe had gotten some of these little acorns and pumpkins….I just couldn’t resist getting some too! I think I will gift some of them, but maybe not!! Aren’t they just the cutest things????
Now, another gift I received was from my Secret Santa from the Beautiful Art and Artwork Guild. My gift came from Rhonda Myers – Rhomy’s Art Studio and Crafts. I received a package of 9 cards in three different styles. THEY are ALL BEAUTIFUL! I can’t wait to use them. The detail in her Dedicated to Those Who Serve is simply wonderful. I may just keep one of each of the cards for my own – framing might even be in the future! What a talented artist!
On Friday night, when I was still feeling better, my Mom-in-law took Ashley and I out to the Alhambra Dinner Theater. We all got dressed up – something we don’t do often – and went off in style! For me it was a belated Birthday Gift, and for Aye it was an early Birthday gift! WE had SOOOOO much fun!! The dinner and hostesses were all themed right along with the wonderful musical THE KING AND I. I have to say that it was WONDERFUL! (there are more photos on my fan page)
And now to the ‘other stuff’!! I have been thinking a long time about changing my daily themes, I have some ideas, but I would really like to have yours. Please leave them here or on my Fan Page.
Also, would any of you be interested in advertising on my blog? I am thinking of opening up 2-4 spots for advertisers…..anyone interested?
I hope you have all had a wonderful week so far and try not
to ‘let life get in the way’! ~KM
