Taking a Break

Grandma called and the kids have run next door to visit with her for a little while. So, I was eating my lunch and checking my friends blogs and saw this on Perri's blog, and thought I'd give it a whirl. If you do it, let me know!

LOL about the spelling-- too funny!

I am feeling much better today, thank you very much for asking! I actually was able to get out of bed, no headache, no fever, only slight dizziness and my throat feels tons better-- hooray for drugs!

It has been a fabulously sunshiney day, David is home all day, we had our lessons, I made lunch, working on laundry, the boys are napping before church... And I have such wonderful friends that check up on me. I am blessed! :-)
