The View from my Bed


When I opened my eyes yesterday afternoon, this is what I saw. Of course, I hobbled to get my camera so I could snap a picture. I loved how the setting sun was casting a lovely glow on those spotty gray and white clouds.

I spent a grand total of 36 hours in bed and although still not 100%, am doing much better today. The kids decided they NEEDED chocolate chip pancakes since I was up and about. I had mine sans the chips ...

with a bit of wild blueberry maple spread that my boss and his wife gave me for Christmas.

Yesterday I couldn't eat a thing so this was a treat. Lots of catching up to do now. Thanks to all of you for your kind thoughts and well wishes. I hope you are having a great start to a wonderful weekend. Friendship blessings, Tammy

Dear Tammy, I can remember being sick with all my kiddos being hungry. I remember laying on the couch, dishing out peanut butter and crackers from the couch. Usually that was when I was pregnant, which was a lot. LOL

I hope you are on the mend Tammy! I always say around here... mom getting sick and everyone else getting sick are entirely different animals! The pancakes look delicious, I am getting ready to make some for the kids and the 4 friends that spent the night last night, should be a fun conversation around the table for sure! Take care, and get well soon, Theresa xoxo

Those pancakes must have tasted wonderful after a full day of not being able to eat much. They certainly look fantastic!!
The picture of the sky is lovely. It does not look like you were having any dust yesterday. That alone is a lovely thing!!
I am glad to hear you are feeling better!!!

Love,
Renee

Hi chicky! I am sorry to hear you have been under the weather. But glad to hear you are feeling better. I craved blueberry pancakes when I was preggers with Jamie. I agree a handmade gift beats out a store bought gift anyday. The sun is shining so bright today! I am sitting at the table soaking up as much as I can. It makes me feel so good, physically and mentally.
Hugs cuz'

HI TAMMY,
I AM SO HAPPY TO HEAR YOU ARE FEELING SO MUCH BETTER. IT WILL TAKE A FEW DAYS TO GET BACK TO WHERE YOU WERE. THE FLU CAN REALLY DRAG YOU DOWN.

I'm so glad you are felling better. You certainly saw a beautiful sky from your bed. Maybe if you hadn't been sick, you would have missed the beautiful sunset. (Can you tell I'm always looking for the silver lining? Sometimes drives my DH crazy.)

Pancakes sound yummy.
