Whew! I'm here. It's been a bit of a hiatus from blog world ... due to an ucky tummy.
In fact it's been THREE WEEKS of ucky tummy for me and I am SO GLAD to finally wake up feeling normal. (or closer to normal)
And although I don't have an explanation as to what I was battling (it went from my sinus to my eyes and made them red and swollen and puffy from one to the other for a week and then descended into my tummy for two more weeks of agony) I'm going to guess that it had to do with having 2 young-'uns in elementary school and one more young-'un potty training. Germ overload. And let me tell ya, I wash my hands so much my skin is cracking. (Which in itself is no doubt a problem for getting more germs in.) No one else has come down with it, which is weird, but such a blessing! But don't think I've totally been sitting on the couch. The Christmas tree is up, hocky practices and games have been attended, I've gotten a little tiny bit of sewing done, and the house is in an okay state. And I read a few blogs here and there to buoy my spirit. (sorry if I didn't leave any comments.)
Thank you God is all I can say for those miracles!
Anyway, on to better things. Did you see the NEW APRON at Scarlet Threads??!! There is a naming contest going on right now. You have until Thanksgiving to leave a suggestion with them on what you might name it. The winner gets a 50% off coupon for their Store! And I know exactly what I'm going to choose if I win! That beautiful new blue apron!!!
So hop on over to Scarlet Threads and celebrate the holiday season or me feeling better by leaving them a name suggestion!
secret little boutique I ran across online ... I think it must be their test market or something. I'm so happy to see it will be a part of the Scarlet Threads honor roll!
Scarlet Threads blog post on the Naming Contest. Oh yes, and while there, leave your own name suggestion(s)!
