At least I think I have. I've been working this week for as long as I could handle it each day. Today I worked 6.5 hours. I've never had pneumonia and hope to never get it again. Fighting for air is real scary. But I'm on the mend, and I'm sure I'll be fully recovered by next weekend. Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments and emails. Every time I stumbled to the computer, you brightened my day and made me feel so good!
Today is my birthday. A real low-key, uneventful day, but it was really nice. My accounting staff gave me a wonderful quilt book and some sunflowers. Those are just the happiest flowers. A dashchund card signed by Daisy was nestled inside the sunflowers!
A very dear friend, Lady Baltimore, made this beautiful Baby Nines quilt for me. Her work is exquisite, and it's all from Robyn Pandolph fabrics. I adore Robyn Pandolph! Judy quilted it, and her feathers and butterflies are just stunning. I can't even tell you how surprised I was to get this box! The quilt was beautifully packaged in a gorgeous blue and white toile Moda bag, and Lady B even tucked "The Little New Orleans Cookbook" inside! As an aside, Lady B's sweet DH and I love singing the LSU fight song during football season!! LOL. Thank you so much, honey! This quilt will be treasured and loved!
My dear friend, Sheila, as usual, was way too generous. I've been picking her brain about working with wool, so she sent me a beautiful assortment of variegated perle cotton, some personalized quilty return address labels, a gorgeous beaded necklace, a Rotary Lite, and some wonderful sayings on wood and tin. Sheila, I love you!
And if that weren't enough, there was a beautiful floral arrangement of roses and lilies delivered to the office this morning from my sweetest little friend in the whole wide world!! I'll get a good picture of them tomorrow to share. You made my heart happy today, little pumpkin! I'm sorry I missed you when I called. (I always forget about the time difference!) ILY!
I'll be celebrating again tomorrow with Jane and her sweet DH. I'm sure there will an adventure or two to report!
Thank you to everyone, again, for checking in on me and making this week special. I am truly blessed!
One more thank you: Nicky, you saved my life this week with your wonderful box of soups and teas! I didn't have much appetite, and it really hit the spot! I love you!
Oh, shoot, I always forget something! Kimberly is having a give-away at Jolly Jabber! Be sure to head on over there and join in the fun!
