The nasty influenza has run its course and I am on the road to becoming healthy. Thank you for your get well wishes and your blog friendships. I appreciate each and every one of you.
I can't remember when the last time I was ill for over seven days, perhaps when I was a child, but this is the first time as an adult. Between sleeping, coughing, taking medicine, and moaning, I tried to read a book.
I had heard about this book from Susan a fellow Wisconsin blogger, she writes the fabulous blog Upscale Downhome and also has a facebook page. Her blog is filled with delightful decorating ideas.
"I believe in creating a home with upscale style on a downhome budget."
I am reading,
Killer Stuff and Tons of Money by Maureen Stanton,
published June 9, 2011.
While I still haven't finished reading the book, what I have read has opened my eyes to new terminology, other publication, and general knowledge about items I knew nothing about.
This book is not a guide but a look into a mans life that loves antiques and tries to make a living to support his family by selling his antiques at different venues such as Brimfields.
The song, Look for the Silver Lining,
popped into my head while I was ill.
- Look for the silver lining
- When e'er a cloud appears in the blue.
- Remember somewhere the sun is shining
- And so the right thing to do is make it shine for you.
- A heart full of joy and gladness
- Will always banish sadness and strife.
- So always look for the silver lining
- And try to find the sunny side of life.
- I was touch by my lovely children, they took the time out of their busy lives to make sure I was doing okay and running around doing my errands for me, friends who popped over with comfort food, delicious chicken soup, and cheesy rice with broccoli, and phone calls, from so many people to see if I needed anything. I am blessed.
