Finally on the Mend

Sorry I have not been blogging of late. If I have any excuse, it is that the Holiday Season came around. Before I had a chance to blog, we were happy to have my daughter and her hubby come and visit with us. The only sad part of that was that they were here to go to a funeral of a family friend. And, the day they were leaving to go home, I came down with a terrible cold. The cold got bad enough that last Friday, I went to see our family doctor. He had me go for chest X-rays to make sure my lungs were clear. He did give me a prescription for antibiotics which are finally working. Today, I still have a bit of a cough but feel much better.

We seem to be getting an inch or two of snow every second day or so. On Tuesday evening, it got so mild, we even had rain. However, we are back to much colder weather and a promise of a bigger snow storm tomorrow. It is snowing now but has not caused any accumulation yet.

We have had a visitor in the form of a flying squirrel. We have feeders by our livingroom windows and after dark, he seems to come and feed there. Being nocturnal, he only travels after dark. He is so cute and looks like he would be soft to the touch. We love having him visit.

DH got me a book about Corn Flower Crystal. I love my new book as it tells how to recognize the true Corn Flower and even has a lot of pictures. My crystal is Corn Flower and in the last few years, I have added some nice pieces to my collection. This book even states from what decade pieces have been made, the price it was sold at the time, and the current prices. Love my book.

Must get going as I should go get lunch. Have a great week everyone and please be careful if you have to shovel that white stuff.

Hope you are feeling better. We got some unexpected snow this morning, I'm hoping it will turn to rain so I won't need to shovel :)

We had a nice visit despite the circumstances :o) I'm just sorry that you got sick and hope it didn't come from one of us. You sound so much better on the phone now so that makes me feel better and I don't have to worry as much.

I'd love to see a picture of that little guy but I bet it won't be easy to get. LOL!

Enjoy your new book. You deserve it :o)

Mumzy I wish I was closer so I could give you a hand shoveling. Not to brag or anything, but I've gotten quite good at it this past week! I find myself getting impatient for spring as the days grow longer. However moisture is moisture in whatever form.

Your flying squirrel sounds so cool! Lucky you to catch a glimpse of him.

Thanks for stopping by, I always enjoy reading your thoughts!

Take care :)

Sorry to hear you've been sick. Lots of folks with colds this winter (including me). Are the germs stronger or are we just older?

Take care of yourself and be careful shoveling snow.
