We now bring you the ickies

We've managed to catch some crud here. I woke up around 1:15 this morning feeling sick to my stomach. The rest of the night was full of bad dreams and spent tossing and turning. I managed to get it together enough to get the kids to school and go get some groceries. Dropped by the NEX where I saw a fire bowl for in the backyard. Happy early Mother's Day to me! Photo of it below. While I was waiting for the man to help me load it in the car, my cell phone rang and it was Delaney's school nurse. Delaney was in her office with a bright red sore throat and fever. So, I went and collected her at school, came home, unloaded groceries, etc. then we picked up the twinkies at noon. When we got home, Tinna said she did not feel well. I took her temperature and she also had a low-grade fever. Sheesh!!! The rest of the afternoon was spent watching tv (Tinna and I watched old episodes of CBeebies' "Balamory"), playing Wii (Will & Delaney), and napping (me). Everyone was in bed early tonight and I plan to do the same. Sorry I haven't had blogged much...until today we've been spending all of our time outdoors because the weather has been just beautiful.

Lots of photos from my garden:



Flower garden

Unsure of this...Auntie Lori says Dianthus

Again, not sure of what it is but it is pretty!


Rose bush

Clematis is taller than me in just two weeks!
