This Day

I have a teething, snoodly, whiney baby with pneumonia on my lap who is refusing to cooperate with my desire to check my favourite blogs. It's yet another damp, cloudy day. We're going to the doctor's office so he can have a listen to baby's AND mama's chest (as I've developed a wicked cough this week, too). I have to bake 4 dozen cupcakes for our class celebration tomorrow, and have 12 pounds of fresh mussels in my fridge so will be entertaining dear friends this evening with an all-you-can-eat feast.

Needless to say, my mind is a bit scattered today. So this day's post has no theme, just a pretty picture of my newly bloomed delphiniums to please your eye.

What does this day have in store for you?


  1. Aw you must be sooo tired!! Hope you and your wee one feel better soon!! And your entertaining too??? Your crazy!! Good luck with everthing, I'll send some positive energy your way!


  2. Yikes, I hope you and the babe feel better soon. I'd say cancel tongiht, but then I don't know how eating 12 lbs. of mussels would make you feel either :)

  3. Oh, no...I thought this week was going to be a rest time for you! Is there some commitment you can cancel without too much hassle? Pnemonia is nothing to sneeze at (haha) and your babies should be resting right now.

  4. sorry, but I'm going to give you need to rest...stop trying to be some sort of superwoman...feed the mussels to the chickens, (yum...what a treat for them), and go to bed early and rest. I'm sure your guests will understand, (and will be thankful to not get a viral cocktail for an appetizer)!!! I take illness as a pretty loud and clear message from the universe to SLOW DOWN!!!!
    your concerned friend

  5. Soooo, when are YOU taking a wee holiday??? ;) Hope you're all feeling better soon. I was sallivating at the mussles. O. MY!
    We're going to Bruges/Zeebrugge in 2 weeks (can't wait!), so there will bemussles on the menu here soon too!
