On Being Sickly...

Doesn't it seem that illness always comes at the worst possible time? I mean, there ever a good time to be sickly? I think not.

But this week? This has been my view...

It's my Mickey Mouse blankey from my childhood. Sharing a room with my sister had 2 perks: 1) Matching Mickey Mouse bedspreads (that are totally rad, btw) & 2) my baby ceester's preggo ET impression. If she doesn't kill me for publishing that fact to the whole world, I'm just going to have to talk her into doing it for "old time's sake" next time I see her...

I digress. I've been sick this week. Sick. Not just one kind of sick, but 12 kinds. And the worst: itching. It started on Monday just after the "stomach bug" attacked. And it's gotten bad enough that I can't sleep now. I won't go into anymore details, but just know...if you haven't seen me since Sunday, this is why. I'm on meds now...hopefully they'll pull me up on outta here, but if not, me & my Micky Mouse Blankey will be on the couch watching reruns on the Netflix & scratching all my itches.

On a lighter you ever have something that smells of someone/something long after many washings and MANY years of storage? This blankey smells like my childhood. And it makes me miss my sister a ton. {4 hours is too far away...}

Friday Faves {2}

Coming in a little late for my Friday Faves. But here we go...

My favorite trick or treaters: A "army man," Mr. Staples, & Little Red Riding Hood {Aren't her boots just the best? I tell you what...I am blessed. My sister gives me all her clothes from her chillens...and she has impeccable taste!}

What lady doesn't love getting flowers every now & again? I love him. He makes my heart flutter a bit.

Miss R sure has a lot of energy. My favorite thing that comes with energy is all that PURE JOY. This is the best shot I could get of her squealing at her big brudder over something silly I'm sure! She cracks me up.

Can't get enough (nor will I ever) of their bond. He adores her...and she him. We.Are.Blessed.

It's the little things, folks. Getting ready for our church's annual Craft bazaar, where I will be selling customized gifts. I'm making samples of all of it to have on hand. Can I just say? Crafting is just...a healing balm for my soul. {This is my mini rag tag wreath. It's SO cute!}

I leave you with my favorites...Big D & Baby R. How could I ask for more?

Linking up with Finding Joy. Good stuff. Take some time to read
