Good Saturday morning to you, my friends…
I’m sitting here in my office with a GIANT cup of hot tea and watching the news while I catch up on blog reading. Haven’t had much time for that this week as Little Bit came down with a nasty case of strep throat. She’s been pretty sick and I’ve been spending most of my time taking care of her. It’s bittersweet, as I hold her in my lap and see her legs and arms dangling over the edges of the recliner. My babies are growing up and it won’t be long before they don’t want me to hold them in this way. So, while I hate that she is sick, I’m loving the extra snuggle time we are having.
Our weekend plans have changed because of her illness and we’re not headed to see family as we had thought. But we are hoping to have some fun ourselves this weekend if she is feeling better – maybe a hike on Sunday afternoon. If not, we’ll just enjoy some relaxing time at home together.
Outside my window… its misty and foggy but looks to be a beautiful day today.
I am thinking… about how quickly things change even though they feel like they will always be the same.
I am thankful… for my house, my family, my health, and my blessings.
From the kitchen…homemade bread, cheese grits and yummy breakfast cooked by SuperMan this morning.
I am creating…comfort and care for my sick little one.
I am going…for a walk later today, I hope.
I am hoping…that I can get all my reading in this weekend for my class on Tuesday night. I’m loving the class but unaccustomed to having homework to fit into my schedule.
I am hearing…Scooby Cat making blissful noises as she rolls in front of the heating vent and revels in the warm air.
Around the house…chores that have been put on hold while I nursed Little Bit. They can wait.
One of my favorite things…good friends.
A few plans for the rest of the week…Easter Sunday celebrations & bible study class on Tuesday night.
