A long week...

that has had NO time for sewing. I did work on a customer quilt, but that doesn't count, after all, that's work!

We've had a lot of issues to deal with this week, doctor's appointments to go to, serious concerns after those appointments...just too much in one week!

So, my sewing room is partially together and totally messy. I hope to get into the room over the weekend, I can use the therapy! DH is going to the Eagles game, so maybe I'll sneak in there on Sunday afternoon. :o)

Knowing that it had been a long week, and I really needed a little cheering up, there was a knock at the door this afternoon and these beautiful yellow roses from my husband arrived in the hands of a kind older man. Then he said, "Wait, I have a few more in the truck!" Not only were there roses for me, but baskets of flowers for each of our girls. (Yes, it was rough all around here!)

So now we've all stopped to take time to smell the roses...

On another note, my bloglines seems to have stopped working. All of the blog names have little red exclamation points after them and no new posting are showing up. I tried resubscribing to some of the blogs, but got the same thing. Is there a way to fix this, or am I doomed to going through the ring and reading the blogs that way? Being totally lost in blogland, I haven't an idea of how to fix it. Heck, I haven't even figured out how to add lists to my sidebar! Thanks for any help you can offer...

Very sorry to hear about your difficult week - the flowers seem to have been a bright spot - very thoughtful of your DH to send them to all of you.

My bloglines is doing the same thing, but if I go ahead and click on the blog anyway - I see an updated blog - so it must be working, just looks different?

Cheers!

As you have probably found out by now, it wasn't you but bloglines that was wacky. Isn't your husband a sweety?!

Sorry to hear about your health issues; I know how that can disrupt. What beautiful flowers! Isn't it great when the husbands "get it"?
Hope you do get into the sewing room this weekend, sounds like you could use the therapy. Enjoy the process.

The flowers are lovely ... but I'm sorry that they were 'needed.' You'll be in my thoughts.

Bloglines seems to be all well this morning.

What beautiful flowers, and what a sweet husband! Hopefully it will be a wonderful, relaxing weekend. It wasn't you - it was blogger and bloglines. They seem to be feeling better this morning.

Sorry about your bad week and your health issues. Your husband is so nice to think of all of you with flowers. Hope your issues magically disappear so you can enjoy your quilting time.

Shelina said...

I have found that with both blogger and bloglines problems is to just have some patience and wait for them to fix them. The more I try, the more frustrated I become, and usually it is a waste of effort.

The flowers are beautiful and hopefully they brightened your days. I also hope things are better for you all.

nothing brightens a day better than flowers-so sorry to hear they have such a serious reason-hopefully conditions will improve somehow-hugs.

What beautiful flowers. It's amazing the power flowers have to heal. About Bloglines, it should clear up on its own.
