Good morning! I'm back!
Did you miss me?
Well, I must say I was down & out through Wednesday of last week. I had a fever that wouldn't break & I did a lot of sleeping, drinking, and sleeping. Pretty much in that order.
I went to the doctor on Monday and he told me that even if I had gotten the flu shot, it wouldn't have touched this strain anyways. I just needed to let it run it's course.
So a 2 day school week for me. Not so bad. I could handle that on a regular basis if the truth must be told.
By Saturday, thank goodness, I was back into full swing because D1 came over & we did this:
~~along with 8 other recipes. We were in the kitchen for 7 hours baking & making sweet treats! And my kitchen is already bare as we gave it all away! Which was the purpose for our baking marathon in the 1st place.
D1 came over around 9:15 and we started right in. I had everything out & ready to go. Her mama came over around 10:30 and supervised us. It was a great day! I really enjoyed my time with D1 and her mama. Just wish D2 lived closer so she could play with us as well. Maybe someday!
Saturday night I was exhausted, but I had to finish up some Christmas cards for the Santa Pics I took the week prior & get them in the mail.
Sunday morning Dream Boy & I headed off to church, with a cookie tray in hand, of course. We went out for breakfast afterwards and then headed home. I took a brief catnap & then headed out with D1 for some creative corner time!
We took a glass fusion class together & made 2 ornaments each. They will be fired & ready to pick up this next weekend.
They look so rough & raw, but I was assured that they will look really cute once the glass is melted & fused.
D1 came home with me & S1 was at the house waiting for us. Dream Boy had dinner ready & we all ate together.
After dinner, D1 was trying to convince S1 to go grocery shopping with her so she wouldn't starve this week, and he was being a curmudgeon about it. Finally Dream Boy stepped in & volunteered to go shopping with her. So S1 headed home, I headed to my computer to finish up some editing & the Dream Boy headed off grocery shopping with D1.
They've done this before - cracks me up. But they have a good time together.
Only 10 more sleeps until S2 & D2B2 are home for Christmas!!! I can hardly wait to see them. We sent out S2's Christmas ornaments to him last week & today Dream Boy is sending a care package of goodies to them as well. But it will be so good to have them home for almost a week!
I hope you are enjoying your holiday time and reflecting on the family fun & traditions you have or may be starting.
Have a happy Monday ~ I'll be back soon.
As always, thanks for having coffee with me this morning.
