When It Rains It Pours!

(Do I ever need a long, hot bath after today's antics!)

Thanks for all the well wishes towards Ry's speedy recovery. He is well on his way to being the ever moving eight year old that he is! However, he is still home with a nasty cough and is still contagious for another eight hours. Just helping to break the cycle at school. Matt is home also with a ugly growth on his foot. I won't go into the details as it would probably ruin whatever you might be eating. We traveled to the plastic surgeon today and it has since been removed.

Thank you to Joslyn of Simple Lovely and Sarah at Thistle Downs Wool Design (go check out her felted bags-they are gorgeous!) for awarding me a You Make My Day Award. It's so weird to think people, other than my family, actually stop to read my blog.

You make my day-Award" works like this:

1. Write a post with links to 5 blogs that make me think and/or make my day.

2. Acknowledge the post of the award giver.

3. Display the "You Make my Day Award" logo with a link to the post that I wrote.

4. Tell the award winners that they have won by commenting on their blogs with the news.

Here are the 5 blogs that I enjoy!

Leslie has received this award from many others and is one of my first stops in the morning. Her site is inspiring and makes me want to knit a lot faster.

Gabrielle at Design Mom offers great ideas for all walks of life. Plus, she has great give-aways!

I look forward to Jane's Friday Five over at The Speckled Egg. This week she is discussing Fashion Week.

I know the next two aren't necessary blogs but they are places I visit often on Flickr.

Go check out Camilla's and Knitswreck's photos. Camilla takes wonderful pictures of her children and her surroundings and Knitswreck's knitting is beautiful.

February Love-5

It has been a grey day here in the Northeast so it was hard to find good lighting to take a picture today. I finally settled on a little primrose that my neighbor gave to us after Murphy passed away. It was just the thing for today's February love.
