Sick Days

Hello and happy Friday!  The past couple of days have been sick days.  I am not sick (yet!) but the little man is... therefore, I am sick.  I sent the Mr. to the shoppe to watch it yesterday (and he will today too) while I wiped a little red nose and tried to keep my cool when *someone* clamped their mouth shut and the sticky medicine went everywhere.  Fun times!  There is something about a sick kiddo that is so endearing though.  It could be that he is actually sitting still long enough for me to get some extra snuggles.  Or that even though he is yelling and upset about being sick, all he really wants is to be around me.  What can I say, I like to be needed!  So, we have been keeping ourselves busy here at the casa.  I have still been switching some things up and the Mr. came home and put up something for me last night.  Plus, I cleaned up the studio.... it was long overdue.

Right now, we are parked on the sofa and I can (don't think the hyena can) smell my first peony of the year:

I am not sure why I always feel such a sense of accomplishment when I get a bloom.  I mean, I just stuck the plant in the ground and every now and then I will weed the bed.  This year, most of my bushes are blooming and the smell is so nice in the house  I had peonies in my wedding bouquet and it has made me think of that day every time I walk by... scent is so powerful!!

I have also been plugging away on my list for 2012.  I have painted the living room.  Scheduled a photo shoot and started on this yesterday!

I figured if I did one letter a week then I could get it finished by the end of the year still.... look though... I am an overachiever!  I finished "a" and am now working on "b" so maybe I will have it done a little sooner.  Does anyone have experience with this transfer stuff though?  I am hoping that it actually does dissolve in warm water.  The tracing seemed so tedious..... I would never have gotten started!

We have a fun weekend ahead of us.  Our shoppe neighbor, Spring Hill Antique Mall, is sponsoring a Antiques and Craft Festival right across from us tomorrow from 9-5.  We will be opening early to take part in all that fun!  That is why it is SO important for the hyena to feel better.... he will not want to miss out on that.  So, I am prescribing extra Elmo, extra red juice and extra, extra snuggles (to make up for that medicine!)

Alright, I am going to do some dishes and then work on "b." Have a great weekend!  Oh and Restoration House Interiors did a little interview with me today!

bye for now!


  1. I've got our little granddaughter here with me this week, so I'm getting lots of snuggles, too. I hope your little man feels better soon.

    I've been doing some embroidery myself and yes, the transfer DOES dissolve with cold water. A letter a day is a good way to tackle your project.

  2. i hate it when the littles are sick. :( hope your hyena gets well soon!

    love the embroidery so far...can't wait to see it finished! :) littles and i might be coming to tn to see my sis next month! would love to see you and your little store! will let you know for sure!

  3. Hope your sweet son feels better soon!! LOve your peony and embroidery work!! It looks like it is going to be beautiful!! Have a lovely weekend!! xo Heather

  4. Hope little man feels better asap! I get the same sense of accomplishment when I see a bloom.

  5. Peonies are my favorite flower-so pretty! The old ones smell so good, don't they? Hope your little sweetie feels better soon.

  6. Oh dear so sorry your wee one is not well! Hope that changes quickly!
    Your blog is lovely & your peonies are divine looking I can only imagine how they smell!
    Great job on the needle work!

  7. Oh, I think being sick in the spring and summer are the worst. Hope your little one is up and about soon and you're able to get that medicine down the throat a bit easier! It reminded me that my twin girls used to LOVE LOVE LOVE the pink amoxycilin! They would BEG for more than the required dosage . . . weird, but funny.

  8. I hope all is now well in your house. You have made me miss my peonies!
