LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Pink Saturday

I'm Back !!!!! :) Well, sort of. :) My computer crashed almost a month ago and was down for a while, Up and down again, then I got the Flu, then Costo and Leg Flares, More Flu and here I am !!! ( Still sick, but trying to get on with Life and living it ) :) I am happy you came to visit me on Pink Saturday, hosted by Sweet Miss Beverly of How sweet The Sound.

Here is a basket I painted months ago and meant to list on Ebay, but needed to put a bow on it and it sat in my studio since then. Well, Today I put that bow on, and little bits of Vintage Millinery compiled into a frothy pink embellishment. Do you like ?? :)


Also, I made these sweet Easter Chick boxes last month and finally finished them with their missing little bows today. :)



Then, after all of that, One big bow and four small bows, I took a nap :) Hee, Hee !!! Hey, that is the most I have done in a few weeks being so ill. This immune suppressant I am on is kicking my backside. I had thought I would NEVER get through this Flu, but I think I am over the worst of it now.

I went to my Dr. today and he wants me to see a Nuerologist now. To see if I might have MS. The leg pain I have is 24/7 now, so he is not convinced I have Fibro as that would come and go. But, my Hubby was laid off yesterday from one of his jobs, so I will wait a few months before we start racking up more medical bills again. I see my Rhuemetologist next month and if he concurs, or has other ideas, we will go from there.

That being said, I am in Fine spirits. Emotionally. We have been saving and very frugal, the economy being what it is and we will ride this out, and Our Lord will provide, we have NO doubts. It will be lovely to actually SEE my husband , Lol !!! After months of 70-80 hour weeks, I just plain miss him. He is my Rock, Hunk and Best Friend. We actually will have TWO whole days together this weekend. We are going to Nest one day, pulling out the sleeper sofa , eating popcorn and watching movie after movie. I am staying in my jammies, ( Like I do every day !! Lol !!! ) But it will be a nice much needed break for him. And I will even sit through a few Guy movies. :)

I want to thank all of you that have emailed, and sent cards wondering where I was. I appreciate your friendships more than you know. I have scheduled posts for several days this week, so that if I am not up to snuff, you can still come say Hi, as I LOVE to hear from each of you and I hope to visit each of you back this week . I have missed you all !! I have pictures of the wonderful things my awesome Christmas Swap Partner Sherry sent me, as well as gifts from other sweet friends to share.

And Thank you Beverly, for being such a sweetheart and Faithfully Hosting Pink Saturdays, week after week. :)

Hugs,

Rhea

Kathleen Grace said...

Oh Rhea, sounds like you have had a bad month! I just got over the flu , was down all week and I know several people who are suffering from it. I'll keep you in my prayers. You and your husband sound like you are going through a lot of the same things my hubby and I are going through. The Lord has provided though, in unimaginable ways and I know He will for you too. The little basket is gorgeous and those little easter boxes are so beautiful! I love them all:>) Enjoy the extra time with your sweetheart!

vickie said...

Hi, sorry to hear you have been ill for the past few weeks. I haven't been in blogs either. Had a death in the family and illness, then a new baby nephew. So this weekend I'm trying to catch up. Miss you, hope you get to neurologist soon!

GARAGE SALE GAL said...

Hi Rhea,
I was wondering if you were okay and sure missed you. No fun being sick:( Sorry to hear about your husband losing 1 of his jobs. I also know that God Provides and it's very tight here also. Husband sell real estate and has his own mortgage company...so I'm going to start up my own cleaning company. Not what I want to do...it's something that I can do and it can be flexiable...which is what I need.
LOVE your Easter chicks:) Too cute and they look SO happy.
Enjoy movie time with hubby.
Warmly,
Deb
