well thursday came and went as i slept it away from the comfort of my nest on the couch. the kids came home earlier this week with a cold. momma got hit hard! i honestly slept from around 10am yesterday til the phone rang at 2 (my hubby checking in to make sure i was up and about and well enough to pick up our littles at school at 3) . when i picked up the phone i was annoyed thinking i had only slept maybe an hour. i was in such a fog. then when he said it was 2:00 i seriously did not believe him. the clock on my wall confirmed he was not pulling my leg and that i had slept like a ROCK for hours! i guess my body really needed it. today i am happy to report, though still sick, i am off of the couch, showered and dressed! seems like a lot accomplished since yesterday i did none of that. fall is here, the wet damp, colorful fall of new england. i hope we see some sunshine soon and dry out a bit. i hope my hubby does not catch the germs next. today was picture day at school. my big 1st and 3rd graders! i can't WAIT for those pictures to come home. they are both missing a mess of teeth right now, plus i love the smiles they give the photographer. i wonder to myself what made them make "that smile" or give "that look" to him or her??? either way i just adore the snapshot in time that school photos provide. this weekend we were to go camping with the boy scouts, but with all this rain and all our germs, i think we may have to opt out this time around. maybe some more apples and baking. and definitely a big pot of chicken and dumplings this weekend. that will boost us all up nicely.
this time of year i really wish i was a better knitter. i want to knit something!
happy long weekend everyone.
may it be cuddly and warm. (and germ free)
