The light at the end of the tunnel... acchhhooo!

Thank you for your congratulations and your good taste... agreeing that Anna is one little cutie pie. 

Time goes by so fast, there are days I find it alarming that I am old enough to have one grandchild, much less five now.  I say grandchildren are the reward of getting older (even if they are 1,000 miles away).

I continue to sleep on the sofa to make breathing easier but last night I slept longer between the times I would wake up feeling like I could not breath.  So far this has been just a really bad cold (I have mentioned before that there is nothing common about the common cold).   I had to teach my husband how to make coffee in our coffeepot and I didn't drink any of it.  I think he was ready to call 911.  :)

The weather has been delightful and I've pretty much missed it!  The garden may get watered today... or may not.

Darned old cold. Have you found some antibacterial stuff to haul around with you wherever you go? Take care now...

So sorry to hear you've been not feeling well dear Brenda. I am empathizing as I've been battling a few problems of my own (much better now, thank heaven). I will include your perfect comfort and recovery in my prayers. Love and hugs,
Tracey

P.S. Yes, the coffee test is a true indicator in our house as well!

You can hardly feel worse than when you have the "common" cold, can you? I hope the misery is over soon and that you'll be able to enjoy your garden again.

Hope you feel better soon. Whispering a little prayer.

When I'm sick and the weather is wonderful, I open my windows in the room where I'm laying so that the air and sounds of the outdoors comes in to cheer me - sometimes it is even better than being outdoors, since I am laying down and enjoying it rather than working out in it.
Prayers for a very rapid recovery now.

I'm just getting over a bronchitis myself and it's taken forever!...I highly recommend breathe right strips for your nose. They are magic. It really seems to help me. I also did the old fasshioned "poultice routine" of wiping Vicks menthol all over my chest and neck...wow!

Feel better new grandma!
