Flower Power

Sweet, sweet Monday. The beginning of a new week. Actually, the beginning of a new month considering it's June 1! Unfortunately I feel like I'm still stuck in last week. My cold has gone from a sore throat to my left nostril, to my right nostril and then down into my chest where it remains, sucking the life out of me. Add to misery the fact that Aunt Flo came for a visit and there you have the ultimate torture.

DH worked all weekend and I went from the bed to the couch, from the couch to the bed, from the bed to the couch...well, you get the idea. I'm over medicated with Cold FX, Zinc tablets, PMS pills and Robitussin. Talk about a cocktail! I did manage to get out yesterday and go over to the new house but my body protested way too much after I put one of the laundry baskets together so it was back to bed for me.

Fingers crossed that the flooring comes in today. If that's the case, hopefully they will be done installing it by tomorrow and then I can get back on track. I don't appreciate it when things interfere with my plans. When body and mind don't listen to each other, this is the result. I just wish they'd take their war somewhere else!

Since I'm still basking in this miserable state, I figured I would use the power of flowers to add some cheer to this Monday and see if that changes anything ;o)

What do you think?

Speaking of Flower Power, I have a sadistic desire to stitch this pattern by The Crossed Wing Collection. Maybe that's just the cocktail talking, I don't know, but if anyone has this pattern for sale or trade, plmk. You can find my email address through my profile :o)

The flowers are gorgeous and just don't 'jive' with the rest of this post. I'm so sorry to hear that the bad germs had such a successful invasion. It's just not fair! Hope you start improving soon. Orange juice and vaseline are your friends.

I hope you're feeling better soon... what an awful time of year to be sick... especially when you have things you want to do in your new house!

Flower power: I love that one too but I don't have it yet either ... I saw it stitched on a hand dye and it's gorgous !!

Fingers crossed for the flooring !!!

ooo... pretty flowers.
How did I know you were gonna get the sick-os? Leave the work and get better or I'm coming over there! ;o)

PS... Our second "Stitchy Beach Retreat" will be the weekend of Nov 6,7 and 8th. Cheaper than retreat when there is full cottages. We have 2 cottages reserved and can get 3 if needed. Think on it, there is lots of time.

Quite the party you're having with yourself and your homemade cocktail.

Feel better soon.

Sorry to hear about your health problems, hope you feel better soon.
I also like "Flower Power" and am thinking of buying the chart but where to buy a couple of hours per day for it?

Oh, such wonderful flowers. And the tulips have such a beautiful colour, I love them.
I hope that you will feel much better soon.
