There I go again…another 3 weeks flew by somehow. Well, actually, I know how I spent the last few weeks… SICK! Our whole house has been saddled with one thing after another for weeks now. First it was a stomach bug, then a cold. Then I was so sick and run down, I ended up with shingles…that one really sucked. Jeff battled a nasty infection in his finger. Then Everett got croup. Back to the stomach bug this week. Ugh.

I’ll spare all the gory details, suffice it to say that it’s been exhausting for everyone!

sick snuggles
This is how we’ve spent most of our days lately… snuggled with a blanket and books.

So please forgive my absence, but I have been working on a few things to share soon! In the meantime, I’d love to hear any suggestions or advice about how to keep the family healthy! The thought of cold + flu season downright frightens me right now…eeeek.

Thanks, friends! Talk soon!

These germs are so annoying, especially when it passes on to the family ! Drink a lot of fresh ginger tea (with fresh lemon and honey) !

Oh, that’s a great idea! I’ve been drinking lots of tea, but not lemon ginger. I’ll go pick some up today!
