Where I've been...

My apologies for appearing to abandon my blog. I was out of town for a week for work and during that time acquired one of the worst virus' I have had in close to 30 years.

I know there are lots of people out there fighting 'bugs' of all strains. It's no fun for sure. It's REALLY no fun when you're alone in a hotel room without the comforts of home (and your own bed).

I'm slowing coming back to life and even beading if just a little (you KNOW I was sick - I had no desire to even bead).

I am so pleased at the response of the One World One Heart event (see previous post) - I want to add another item or 2 to up the odds of winning. I'm not sure yet what I will add to my offering, but you can be sure it/they will include BEADS!

I hope everyone is well. I have to say while I was gone I received 2 wonderful packages which provided a much needed boost. I will post photos soon with all the details.

Hope you manage to shake the bug off completely. Look after yourself! Glad you found your way to my blog to enter my giveaway. It's so great meeting all these new people! [oh... and I can relate to the misery of illness while in a hotel room. I had a 1 a.m. call a couple of months ago from my son, stranded in Prague with the miseries... "Mu-u-um... I'm sick...." He just needed me to know!

Gosh, hope you give that bug a good beadin'!!! Glad you're home, safe & sound. Your email clearly shared your trials...nothing like being sick and away from loved ones. Be well. Chat soon, Monica

Oh, sorry you
were sick; and doubly so
because you were away
from home while sickly!
Snuggle in your own bed
now and nap a lot; bead
some; hope you can eat a
little chocolate soon!
Missed your blogging!

Leaves of Grass

This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
