Life is sometimes just a big Wack-A-Mole game. You just get one mole wacked and another pops up!

After Christmas I thought I had a cold but it ended up being full blown influenza. However, I'm recovering and feeling mostly like myself now. So it has kind of put a kink in my after Christmas sewing.
Last week my daughter Tracey was visiting from Oklahoma where she and her husband live/work and attend school. It was really nice having her with us as we really missed them at Christmas. She brought me the sweetest bee tea set. I collect tea sets and this was a fabulous addition to my collection. Oh, I love bees and I love seeing it how she staged it in my green tray. Thanks Tracey! I love surprises.

Yesterday I had a another fun surprise. My BFF Lori Holt sent me a get well package. Lori knows me as if we had been friends for years. She sent this totally wonderful and so "me" red dotty teapot along with some soothing herbal teas and red and pink fat quarters. The teapot is microwavable. It will be so used. Thank you Lori! Tonight I choose the lemon zinger tea. Ahh.
So other than getting better, working on a few new blocks, being with Tracey and my family, I have had some good Allison time. She's got such a personality.
And she is so much fun. She loves her Nanny. She always has a smile and some coos for me.

Update on choosing my washer/dryer/phone: Thanks so much for all the input. I think I have my mind made up on what I will buy. One of my kids tinkered with the washer and it started working again but I know it is only a brief respite before that "mole" raises it's ugly little head again and I find myself plunking the $ down for the new appliances.

Also, my phone works about 70%, about 40% of the time. I haven't had time or felt like fixing the problem yet but it has put a crimp in my ability to keep an eye on my blog (along with being sick) and answer email. So if you asked me a question and I haven't answered, please email me again and I will be more responsive.

Cute teapots...but even cuter baby. She is so sweet! Hope you are feeling better very soon. I have that "mole" problem in my life too sometimes.

Kaaren said...

No better cure for the flu than a good cup of tea...especially made in a red polka dot tea pot.

Feel better soon, Nanette.

The flu!! That just stinks. I am glad that you are feeling better though. The teapot gifts are just adorable. But even more adorable is that little Allison. I bet it is just wonderful having her there and playing with her. FUN! Can't wait to hear the continuation of the washer/dryer/phone/saga.

Busy Little Quilter said...

The teapots are adorable.

I hope you're feeling better, soon. There's nothing like a baby to make you feel so loved. Don't you just love being a Nanny?

*karendianne. said...

Lori does KNOW your and LOVE you. To find a teapot like this that is actually safe for the microwave, well, that's extra amazing and special. About as extra special as that sweet baby. Ahh, just want to give her the biggest hugs ever. Be well. Love and healing, *karendianne.

Joy said...

Oh Nanette what an appropriate (and fun!!) comparison ~ you're absolutely right, sometimes life is JUST like a 'whack a mole' game LOL. Glad you're feeling better!!
Those tea sets are to die for, I really love the bee one, SO cute :o). Not as cute as your Alison though, what a cheeky grin she has ..... oooooh, give her a cuddle for me would you ;o)!!!
Hugs,
Joy ;o)

Hope you're feeling much better! (Life certainly has its ups and downs, but I know you count your many blessings every day, and you share many of them with all of us!)

Janet said...

I love the teapots, I'm still keeping my eye out for a red polka dotted one. Glad you are feeling better and always enjoy that cute baby face.

jacquie said...

hetty said...

Those tea sets are very cute, but I think little Allison takes the prize for cuteness! It must be nice to have a little person cooing at you! Take care and hope you are feeling better!

Pat said...

Your granddaughter gets cuter each time you show her.....LOVE her in the polka dotted sleeper, too. GREAT teapots you got, too.
