Thank You All For Your Sweet Encouragement.

 Let me tell you . . .
when you are cooped up 
in the house for two weeks
coughing your head off . . .
It's sooooooooooooo nice
to know you have sweet friends.
Friends that are thinking of you, 
praying for you and sending you
cheery and encouraging thoughts.
Thank you all!

I'm feeling so much better today.
I've quilted and I'm actually 
enjoying fixing dinner :)



Our neighbors even popped over
Christmas Morning
 with 
breakfast for us.
Breakfast Casserole 
and 
Homemade Cinnamon Rolls.

It's great to be loved :)

Keep Smiling!

Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

    1. Hi Janice, sorry to hear that you were in the same boat with me . . . especially during the holidays. We had to cancel several holiday engagements, but that's how it goes. It sure feels good to be on the mend . . . here's wishing you a speedy recovery, too :)

  5. I'm so sorry to hear you've been so sick. Take care of yourself and just take it easy for the next few days...even when you feel better. I know you are anxious to get back to doing the things you enjoy though. Sending you lots of hugs, Diane

    1. Hi Diane, I know that there is a thin line between feeling better and over doing it because you feel better. This has always been a hard line for me to recognize, but as I get older, it it certainly something to take seriously. Thank you so much for your sweet words of encouragement :)

    1. Hi Cindy, I am so sorry to hear this and seriously hope that your cough doesn't last as long as mine. I read this joke yesterday that said, you know that you are good at multitasking when you can cough, sneeze and pee all at the same time . . . that has been my life for the past two weeks, LOL.

    1. Hi Melanie, I am truly blessed with great friends, neighbors and a sweet man. It makes it much easier to be able to kick back and get lots of rest. Can you believe I've finished four books during this time and I'm halfway through another.

    1. Hello Raewyn, thank you for your sweet and encouraging words. I'm feeling much better . . . still have a cough, but nothing like the last two weeks. You are probably right in the middle of your growing season, but I have started getting seed catalogs in the mail (two just yesterday) so I have a lot to look forward to with this new year approaching . . . there is nothing like being sick and then feeling better . . . to get a gal anxious to getting moving and going again :) I hate having moss growing under my feet, LOL.

  15. Thanks for such a nice visit, Connie, I'm glad you liked the mantel!

    I'm so sorry to hear you had a nasty bug---or still have. I caught something in October and it still isn't completely gone. I was on two different antibiotics and spent a week in bed at the very start. It just won't go away. I guess this doesn't make you feel any better! lol!

    Take care of yourself and a belated Merry Christmas!

  21. Happy New Year, Connie. Just saw your link over at Kay's and was able to skip over with the link. So sorry to hear you've had the coughing bug (I do truly know what that is like, and it can be so debilitating, because you can't rest or breathe well either). But happy to hear today you felt better, and I loved seeing the lovely quilt project you're working on. (I used to quilt...em..make that buy fabric...in another life. Still enjoy seeing the quilts too). The fish looks yummy, and should help you regain your energy. Wishing you all the best in 2016. TFS
