I'm so sorry you're sick, Koralee...me too, I'm afraid! Just about to make my great-grandmother's old honey lemon drink to make me feel a bit better...

I've never heard of this publication before--off to check it out! I need some "inspired ideas" today!

Thanks for all the beauty and joy your share, dear friend...even while you're not feeling well...wishing you completely better so very soon!

tracynko-motile said...

I hope you are sneeze free soon. I love the hearts hanging I think, by a computer in a previous post. I wondered if you made them. I LOVE them.
I hope you are wrapped up warm with a hot beverage.

Hey, thanks for (lovely as always) message - have updated blog with news of girls...it was a little downbeat yesterday as only one girl not in the fold!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

HERE I AM!!! Got 'cha a gallon of orange juice, AMY'S HARDCOVER, some art supplies and more tissues, dearest! OH, and a box of your favorite tea...oh Koralee, it is GOOD that you stayed home again today! For tomorrow, well you know, it is gonna be a late day and evening! Oh, this year was scary as me and my colleague with whom I share students, we had to conference with 100 parents...what an evening! But you have Friday off? YES!!!!!! Oh dear, I just visited the link you provided and I need to get this subscription. THIS IS WHAT I LOVE...birds, glitter, pretty colors...everything you provide.

MERCI MON AMIE, ET GUERIS-TOI!!! (Get well) BISES, Anita

**CREATIVE CARMELINA** said...

Aw...hope ya feel better dear Koralee!
but you're right..there is a little bit of glee hiding in among all those sneezes..and tissues...

it's the forced comfort taking we all undergo when we deem it necessary to take extra care of ourselves...am I right!

maybe we should all "play" sick all the time!
we would get caught up on all of our leisure reading...be it digital or hardcopy formats, lol!

I just had to laugh...because as you saw...that was my post topic for today!

ciao bella

stay warm. stay cuddly!
