On the mend


Can I get a do-over for January, please? The new year came with great intentions. My last day of work was the 12th and then I thought I'd spend a week organizing the house before getting down to business...and then we all got sick. It was one of those cold/flu things that hits you like a truck and you're useless for over a week. There was a lot of time spent in the tub

I bought a shiny new laptop and new printer/scanner thing that I'm very excited about. My laptop has been keeping me cozy in bed these past few days with American Horror Story and True Blood but today I'm happy to be blogging with it. I'm hoping to carve out some time to download all of my fonts and put all of my photos and blog stuff from my dying desktop on it.

In other news, Dollie from The Rockabilly Socialite started her 12 week VLV Fitness Challenge. For those going to Viva or just wanting to reach a spring time health goal, follow along with her. I bought a massive amount of vegetables the other day, hoping to get back to doing daily yoga and pilates too, once this throat thing is gone.

Also, check out the adorable and easy tutorial from Technicolor Cutie on how to make novelty plastic fruit brooches. I'm going to run to the dollar store and craft store this weekend to see if I can find some cute fruits


  1. I was wondering why there were no blog posts for the last week. Feel better doll.

  2. Hey! I was just thinking about you and hoping everything was alright. Glad to hear you're on the mend, feel better soon!

  3. Aw, feel better sweetie! :( It's never any fun to start off the New Year all germy and sick. BOOOO! HISSSS!

  4. Hope you're feeling right as rain soon! I have not forgotten about you!

  5. Poor dear (and family), I'm very sorry that you welcomed the new year on such an ill note. I developed a cold (+ on again, off again migraine) around December 28th that lasted for two full weeks, so I can certainly relate. Fingers firmly crossed that neither of us or our loved ones fall ill with any other bugs this winter.

    Enjoy your new laptop - I'm adoring my Lenovo that arrived in early December (at long last).

  6. Woo hoo, you're back! Like I said on FB... missed you!!!

  7. Bless your heart. Hope you all are feeling better now AND keeping warm. I read it's been cold as a witch's tit up there.

    Oh, and Brit, I've joined you Blogger folk. Working on a new blog featuring Bible covers and ministry magazine covers. Don't feel like the rigamaroll of WP and in my mind years ago when I had Blogger it was easey peasey to get up and running.

    Soup, salad and tea for you all.



  8. So glad you're back and feeling better! You were well missed. :)

  9. Feel better :)! It looks like you kept yourself well entertained while you were sick though. There is nothing worse than being bored and sick. I love the bowl you had your soup in. Thanks for the links, I'm always looking for more things to read.

  10. I think I may have the same thing as you, and each day this week I think I'm better and then it's just different. lol Hope you're feeling better soon! xo
