Well, this has been quite the week. We had made arrangements for some friends to come in and help us paint last weekend, and wouldn't ya' know, I come down with swine flu on Friday night! It has been alot of years since I have been so sick and for so long. I was down in bed for 6 days straight, and finally ventured out to the doctor yesterday. The flu had turned into bronchitis, so with some antibiotics and better cough medicine I am finally starting to feel better. Thankfully, the painting happened without my help. John and a couple of friends are working on the last two rooms as I write, and then it will be all done. Wow, what an ordeal! I know John was counting on me being a lot more help than I was able to be. We hope to sign the listing papers this week, hurray!

The weather has turned decidedly into autumn, and I was amazed when I went out to the doctor yesterday how the wind and rain has knocked all the leaves off the big trees. My little trees around the house are still valiantly hanging on to those leaves.

I don't have any pictures or much other news to share after my hibernation...I know I was really sick when I didn't even feel like stitching!!! But for a closer, here is a picture of my granddaughters Alana and Gracie at the pumpkin patch last Saturday....

I'm so glad you're better now! Take care and don't overdo it during your recovery! (Easier said than done, I know!)
