I got some really neat news today! My aunt has started up a blog. :) This aunt has been very active in my life - I was one of her 4 flower girls in her wedding when I was 4 years old. She also spent many hours watching my siblings and I in our younger years. She lived by her parent's house at the time and we'd ride horses, collect eggs from the chicken, work in the garden and basically have a grand ol' time!
She was the one who worked very hard on the flowers for my wedding - a present I really appreciate! As a little "thank you" I made this wall hanging for her and her husband.
(I blocked off the names).
We also have a lot in common now - we both love dogs, gardening and quilting. She was the one who gave me this beautiful picture of Missy. (Scroll to the end of the post). My aunt is also a very talented painter and I love how she adds her dog in the paintings. :) So go on an give her a visit!
I was feeling sorry for my husband - he's been getting a little neglected as I fight this cold. So I figured I'd make him some chocolate chip cookies! :) I think this is the first batch of homemade cookies I've made since we were married. :o
Of course, as soon I was done with the last batch, I promptly fell asleep on the couch. :P But you're welcomed to come over and help yourself to the cookies. We also have a gallon of milk too. :)
The down part of today is that my cold is waaaaaaaaaay worse. When I tried to go to bed last night, the sinus pressure made me want to pull my eyeballs out. Finally at 1am I resorted to a semi-upright position on the couch. Didn't get much sleep that way, but I was happy to breathe! :P 4am found me back in my bed and I tossed and turned until 9:30am - yup, missed out the guild meeting. Oh well, I'd hate to pass this on to the lovely quilting ladies.
When I was at the store today, I grabbed some nighttime sinus/cold medicine, so I'm really hoping I'll sleep better tonight!
