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.
