Day Four in Days of Joy: Staying Home

Working from home and staying home were blessings beyond compare yesterday as three out of five came down with the flu and daddy was still trying to get over it but battling severe aches and stuffy nose. Our son was everywhere and helping in every way; making scrambled eggs when I finally made it downstairs at 9 in the morning, fetching things, adding wood to the fire. Our day consisted of lots of tea and blankets and reading "Anne of Green Gables" in front of the fireplace. Oh, and we did move our blankets to the playroom mid-afternoon to watch a movie together. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers, as baby (I know, he's two, but he is the baby) woke with a burning fever a couple hours ago.


  1. You will be in my thoughts, and I hope all of your loved ones will be feeling well soon.

    Take care and lots of hugs. :)

  2. Thank you, Tammy! They are all miserable, but healthy enough to complain tonight, so I am satisfied. I appreciate the thoughts.

  3. Hope you are all better soon. I've been enjoying your posts so much!

  4. Hi! Wandered over from the HEM Writers list! You might want to move your profile info closer to the top, so that people can find it more easily.

    And, no, I don't know who died and left me Queen of Blogging. I'm just naturally bossy, I guess.

  5. Thank you, Mary, for your warm wishes. I think most of them are beginning to feel better, as the night was much quieter than it has been, and my med chart had no entries on it. Don't laugh, but I have to write down who had a pain med when just to keep track of it all!

    Have a great day!
