Earth laughs in flowers... Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

Some News!!!

fall flowers

Happy Sunday everyone!!! I hope ya’ll had a wonderful Halloween!!! Ours was fairly quiet. A few trick or

treaters and some football. Our team lost…boo hoo :( but we managed to have a good time anyway.


I am taking a little bloggy break. Our family has been hit hard by the H1N1 virus. My husband, daughter and

son all have contracted the virus over the last couple of weeks. Everyone is recovering well but I need to catch

up on some things around our house and get our lives back on track and under control.


When I come back I am planning another giveaway…I already have the items I want to share…I think you

will like them!!!

I hope ya’ll have a wonderful week!!! I will be back soon!!!

Lots of Love!!!

Hi Cathy. Sending get well wishes to your family. Take care!

Stacey said...

Girl I hope you don't get it! My husband had it about three weeks ago. Fortunately it doesn't last terribly long but the cough hangs on for awhile. I understand how you get behind.

That game last night was awful, wasn't it? We need Dez Bryant...that goober shouldn't have misbehaved. I love to watch him run like the wind!

Sandra said...

Oh no! Hopefully it'll go away quick for you, Cathy. (hugs) I'm terrified of the h1n1. Hoping that we don't get it at all.

Lisa said...

Get your family well, Cathy. Talk to you when you get back!

Unknown said...

Take care of yourself, and prayers for your family, too!

Sue said...

Take care of your family, but make sure you also take care of yourself! Don't want you sick, too.

It's hit my daughter's family very hard. Almost lost the little one! Thank GOD she is OK. I think you have been through quite enough for a while. Time for some tremendously good health all around!

southerninspiration said...

Oh, Cathy, I am so so sorry. Gargle lots with salt water and drink lots of warm fluids; they say that will wash the germs down into your stomach where they cannot survive. Even if you do get it, it will lessen the severity of it. I hope you stay well.
Take care and we'll see you when you get back.

I'm so sorry the dreaded H1N1 has invaded your home! Take care!

Twice as Nice said...

Twin's son had H1N1 last week. (although they aren't testing for it he had all the symptoms and was very sick). My son had a virus~small fever and body aches but I don't think it was H1N1 unless he had a mild case if that is possible. We have been hit hard with it in our state and I'm just hoping we don't get it.
Hope you don't catch it and everyone else is feeling better.

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

Oh, Cindy I'm so sorry and totally understand. Take care of your family and yourself. For heavens sake if it get in your lungs get to a Doc. this nasty stuff turns int pneumonia quick. Hubby and I had it less than two weeks before it was given a name.
