Back Home and Catching up!!

Drinking lots of hot tea..

Pretty Valentine eye candy for the tree..

Happy to be home and lazy with the kitties..

Bleeding hearts........a favorite flower..

Such a nice surprise to read all the Sweet comments by all and 'Thank you' for the kind thoughts..My month at my daughters was up and down ..the Up's was spending time and playing with the kids and being with my daughter.[ we even managed to go see P.S. I LOVE YOU, with Gerard.. man, oh man ,what a man! oh yeah enjoyed the movie too !] the Down was being 'Sick!' My daughter's computer had crashed while there and so No computer..then every germ in sneezing distance found me and had a feast the first 2 weeks while there! Anyways, I got use to being sick and still enjoyed myself ..Brought a grocery bag full of craft projects to do and never touched anything..just no time or too tired ..When my husband came to get me ,we left earlier than planned to beat the coming Snow Storm ,which closed the 'Mackinac Bridge' and highway...we hit the storm half way home but made here in one piece..frazzled.. but home!

I even managed tobring.. home alittle surprise... a 'New Flu Bug!!' so been out of commission here the past few days..nasty coughing and aches and did something to my ear..well lots of surprises to share with the Dr. on Monday.. well, enough gross stuff!!

I was amazed at the mountain of mail my husband piled up for Swaps!! THANKS ALL The Ladies , I Have Not FORGotten You! My favorite ,which not sure if it was the card or the fever!? was from VIVAN .. I giggled and was just totally giddy... 2 Gerard Butler Valentines! I did take pictures then dropped into my bed..will post pictures in a day or 2.. OMG!! the Swaps were such a uplift to my spirits and you will all receive your Swaps, next week as started working stuff now and over the weekend !! Time for some medication and off to bed!!
