99% sure it's not allergies.............

Still not well.  Still feel as though someone have just run over me with a bus.  I am sleeping a lot and got a tickly cough that won't go away.

I did read people's blog posts yesterday but didn't comment.  I was supposed to go with dh up to son's yesterday and don't feel well enough to go to our daughter's today.  Mind you I also don't want to give Our Little Munchkin this, as touch wood she has been well recently.

She moves up to the toddler room tomorrow, so a big day for her.  It will do her good, as she is getting bored in the baby room.  Here she is watering the "garden!"
Good to see how green the grass is looking.

Here is Our little man he was 7 months old last week:
Not sure who he looks like, but I do think he will be tall,  He's a smashing little boy.

Here he is with his sister who is 27 months going on 20 years of age!!!
She said to me the other day:

"Nana I pooped in the toilet."

I said, "Well done, Nana also pooped in the toilet today!"

We "talk" to all three grands most days via Face Time.  Mind you both girls have the attention span of a gnat!!!    How great is modern technology?

"Lord of the Dance,"

I have never heard this song in years......

I danced in the morning when the world was begun,
And I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun,
And I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth,
At Bethlehem I had my birth.


Dance, then, wherever you may be;
I am the Lord of the Dance, said he.
And I'll lead you all wherever you may be,
And I'll lead you all in the dance, said he.

I danced for the scribe and the Pharisee,
But they would not dance and they would not follow me;
I danced for the fishermen, for James and John;
They came to me and the dance went on.


I danced on the sabbath when I cured the lame,
The holy people said it was a shame;
They whipped and they stripped and they hung me high;
And they left me there on a cross to die.


I danced on a Friday and the sky turned black;
It's hard to dance with the devil on your back;
They buried my body and they thought I'd gone,
But I am the dance and I still go on.


They cut me down and I leapt up high,
I am the life that'll never, never die;
I'll live in you if you'll live in me;
I am the Lord of the Dance, said he.

I guess I should have posted this on a Sunday?

Not sure if this is how I look?

But this is how I feel:

I can't decide if it's allergies or I am coming down with something.  My throat feels like it is on fire, and I am feeling cold; which never happens unless I am sick.  My head is all stuffed up.  Fingers crossed it's only allergies, as I will pick up allergy pills when I go grocery shopping today.

Onwards and upwards as they say {{{SIGH}}}

Shadows and reflections........

It was finally warm enough for me to open the garden doors in the back.  We hunted out the patio chairs on the weekend, but haven't sat out there yet.
 Reflections in the glass from the windows.
 You can see the actual colour of the glass here; they're from Pier 1.  I had just had a cool drink of ginger ale with ice.  Spent the rest of the day having the ability to burp the alphabet!!!  That is why I rarely drink carbonated drinks!!
 Look at all that sun shining in from the window.  Perfect place to soak up some rays!

All things creative today

How to make pinwheels:

How to make fruit roll ups....yummy!!

Here is where I am in my knitting, over half way through the yellow ball of yarn, two more to go after that:
Putting together a quilt top for dd that I started, ages, and ages ago.  First four rows done, it's a lot brighter in real life.  The blocks are a pinwheel variation, that I had done here.

Bought a ball of dishcloth yarn in an attempt to try and learn myself to crochet..........not holding out much hope though!!
I already have the crochet hooks, so it's not costing me a lot to see if I can do it.

I just posted another book review "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan," by Lisa See if anyone is interested?  Great book I gave it a 5 out of 5!!
