Yes, another week lost to illness. I was out all this past week with another bad cold and double ear infection!! Just doesn’t seem right. I slept, and slept, and slept some more. But today I awakened at 6:30 am and felt good. Whatever I had over Christmas I ended up giving to the family – not a nice gift at all.
Saturday and Sunday I made myself stay out of bed and up. But I didn’t feel like doing much and watching movies all day gets a little old. So I began a sweater for a colleague who is expecting their second son next month. It’s with soft blue wool, although in the photo the wool looks pretty washed out:
And before my youngest daughter returned to college we celebrated my birthday early. In addition to a lovely cookbook and treats (and home-made cake) she also gave me a beautiful bouquet. I took a close up because they are just so pretty!
And I invite you to visit my photo blog where I have posted a portrait of my middle daughter. I want to improve my portrait skills this year, and so this is an early attempt.
