Has anyone else had a cold that won't go away? Mine loves me. I was just starting to get better when Vicki, my MIL, came to visit this week. She brought a gift... a cold just for me. I honestly can't blame her for the resurgence of my winter cold. It could be my same friend who came back because I am staying up late and doing too much. Or, it could be a brand new strain of congestion, pounding headaches, and tiredness. Who really knows. All I know is that my head is going to split open after my eyeballs pop out from all the sinus pressure. How's that for a mental image - my apologies.
Gene took his Mom out to lunch today. The plan was for them to have some fun while I nap. Gene had sweetly tucked my back into bed and kissed me goodbye for the afternoon.
Am I napping? Nope. I am on the couch with three blankets piled on me, and a bowl of popcorn. Instead of getting the much needed nap, I have decided to watch MTV True Life, read blogs, and read my book all at the same time.
I wonder why I can't get well.

Iowa has them all beat. It is almost the snowiest in the winter, almost the rainiest in the spring, almost the steamiest in the summer, and almost the best weather in the fall. I love it!
Right now we are enjoying all the snow. This year hasn't been as icy as the past two years with is a plus. However, my backyard has a mini ice skating rink in it. It seems to be popular with my girls. They dig through the snow like they are going to find a treasure in the ice. I wish I could come up with a way to freeze gemstones in the ice. Wouldn't that be fun!?! I'll have to think about that one.

Okay, this seems a bit corny, but I really "loved" the idea of this post... make a list of the things that you love about yourself. I guess it is my own personal valentine. So, in the spirit of the season and the fact that I am always my worst critic... here goes
*I love my smile.
*I love it that I am creative and always wanting to try to make new things.
*I love that I have loved being a military wife despite the challenges.
*I love my heart - I want everything in the world to be good and fair and it pains me that it isn't.
*I love that my life focus is my family and their happiness.
*I love that I enjoy serving in so many ways - church, family, and friends.
Okay, not so bad. I hope other friends try this. I would be thrilled to read theirs.

The girls and I traditionally make Valentine's Day shirts. This year's shirts look FABULOUS and were the easiest to make!
We used shimmer paint and sponge daubbers from Stampin-up, mailing tape, self-adhesive stencils from Hobby Lobby, left over rhinestones from last year's shirts, and two red pre-washed shirts.
