I've had a cold virus, including all the "frills" -- fever, achy body, coughing, and tiredness. Fortunately, each day is getting better, and I'm "shooing" this thing out the door ... and posting a sign that "reads" -- COLD NOT WELCOME HERE! Ah well, we all go through this. Last week I had been saying to Mystery Man (that would be my husband!) that a day off to do some sewing would be great. I did end up being home from school for two days, but no energy whatsoever could be found for sewing! Mom, I did play Scrabble your style -- one person for both moves! I didn't get very far, but it entertained me for a few moves. I also managed to read a little of The Help -- really enjoying the book! Now in case you think I have spelled quean wrong -- go take a look in the dictionary. Today I was back to work and enjoyed being there. Being sick renews a thankful spirit!
