sickness and snowstorms

What a week! Finn was slowly recovering from his bought with the flu and then it took over my body…and then onto Michaels…now back to little man, though, thankfully it’s just a cold now… Hence, no posts last week…

Then it was preparing for the storm – the record breaking, two-day storm. What a storm it was – over 3 feet of snow, both doors snowed closed and drifts up to the windows (and even over some windows!)…thankfully, we never lost power and the sun did eventually shine…

So, we are all still recovering and looking forward to spring – it will inevitably come, sooner or later as will our good health…

Not much to post today…Finn came down with the flu and few days ago, so life around here has s-l-o-w-e-d  down. Thankfully, not a strong strain of the flu, but one to make us stop for awhile…

Stories, sleeping (he, not I), sipping tea, sitting by the fire, more stories, playing in the tub (great for aches and pains), sometimes twice a day (again, he, not I), wiping tears, snuggling on the couch (near the fire), more stories and trying to convince him that those ‘little pellets’ (homeopathic) will help his ill-ease, are just a few things which have consumed my days and nights lately…Nighttime is usually when I work, though these past few nights have been sleepless with fever – so, not much to post today except;

Be thankful for your health and the health of your family and friends. It’s such an easy thing to take for granted, until it’s taken from you…even if only for a few days…

Be well.

Enjoy.
