Finally Healthy

I feel like Michael and I have been sick for the last three months. Each time one of us got over whatever we had, the other one started getting sick. This week, I finally started really feeling better after having the flu, and Michael started getting a runny nose 😟 We've recently been introduced to essential oils, so I was rubbing oils on his feet and on his chest before he went to sleep. Don't know if they helped, but he never got fully sick, and we are both finally feeling well ( for two days - but hey).

I was also trying to keep him well because Friday night was our annual dinner dance with my business organization. We had reserved a hotel room near the venue so we could spend a quiet day together and not have to drive home after the dinner. In the end, we had a wonderful time. We even got a room on the 42nd floor so we had a really nice view of the Freedom Tower (picture didn't come out well though). The only thing I have to remember for the future -- when you are that high up it takes a long time for the water to get hot for a shower!

We had a great time at the dance! I think we clean up pretty well. Ha ha.

In terms of stitching this week, I made some nice progress on my Tulip Bouquet, especially considering that Friday night is usually my main evening for stitching.

Hoping to get another Lazy Daisy letter done this week, but mostly I need to spend time in the evenings kitting up some projects to work on during our cruise. I can't believe that we are leaving in just 12 days! I don't want to take too much, but I want to make sure I have enough to work on when we are lounging on deck.

Thank you for visiting. Please feel free to leave a comment.


  1. Your Tulip Bouquet is coming along nicely. Glad you two were well enough to get out for the evening.

  2. Beautiful photos and so glad to hear you are now starting to feel well again - so many bugs going round this time of year. Love your stitching.

  3. Glad you're feeling better. You both looked great at the dance! Clean up good, girl. :)
