Taking a cue from the holiday week...

I'm thankful that I have a nose to be stuffy.
I'm thankful that I have limbs to be achey.
I'm thankful that I have a throat to be scratchy.
I'm thankful that I have a husband to share my germs with.
I'm thankful....

I'm out. I got nothing else. I thought this cold was going away, but it reared it's ugly head last night as I stayed up half the night coughing & feeling miserable. I would really appreciate any prayers/home remedies, as I feel I have exhausted my resources. We have a new niece coming soon--if God honors our prayers, as soon as 3 weeks--so I can't have any traces of cold. Plus, we are seeing so many people for the last time and the last thing I want to be doing during our goodbyes is wishing I was in bed.

Honest thanksgiving... We're hanging out at Neil's home in Newburgh, IN for the holiday week. In the next hour we are heading off to our next round of vaccinations and then to a CHINESE BUFFET with Neil's grandparents. "Buffet" gets me excited paired with just about any word, but it's doubly good next to "Chinese" and "Neil's grandparents". It's going to be a beautiful day of full belly, sleepy eyes. Can't wait :)

yay Chinese food.
boo colds.

An Ode to the blue flour canister

Oh blue flour canister
how I love thee
for my happiness when I walk into the kitchen,
you have been a key

I love that with a tint of blue
I can see how much flour you hold
I remember the day I got you
during a shower just after I got my wisdom teeth pulled

it stunk to empty your contents
and pack you away
I'll miss you while I'm in India
maybe I'll use you again someday.

Promise me you'll stay in style
so that upon my return
I can take you out of that blasted box
and together we can satisfy a cookie yearn.

love, me
