We've had one of those up and down weekends. It all started on Thursday late afternoon, when we got a few, more, Christmas gifts in in the mail.
As it turns out, it was just pure coincidence that the temperature began when it did. Praise the Lord! Her white blood cell count was low, but her ear looked just fine, and she passed all the other tests. So, I've been cooped up, most of the weekend, watching movies, cuddling, reading stories, and nursing her back to health, while the boys have been off gallivanting around. Matter of fact, the only thing she just couldn't live without was a quick stop by the library, on Saturday morning, to give a hug to our children's librarian, who is retiring. We have known her since we moved into our home when Ezekiel was two-years-old. We will miss you greatly, Miss Debbie!
Sunday was just a completely lazy day, but I cannot even begin to tell you how exhausted I felt. Adina and I whipped up pork chops, rice, and glazed baby carrots for Sunday noon, which was good, because the boys were starving, when they got home from church. But other than that and a massive pile of dirty dishes to wash, we just rested, watched football, and tried to relax; before the boys were off to Awana again, and us girls got back to the really important stuff, like changing our toenail polish from RazzApple Magic Dip...
Market Fresh Girls and I have got a fabulous line-up of card creations to share, with you all, later today. I hope you'll stop back by to check it out! Until then, I wanted to leave you with a picture of our amaryllis. I just LOVE to have a little pop of sunshine, growing right in my window box, when the plants outdoors have lost their luster and shriveled up with the frost!
