Coreopsis Flowers

 Today I'm feeling a little sorry for myself I have a head cold and have a headache and runny nose.  Dear hubby came down with it on Friday night but of course he's worse (he thinks) as he has the man flu and not the common head cold like I have. LOL

I'm sorry that you are feeling poorly. And I agree, men always THINK that they are sicker than anyone in the entire history of the world! It's good to see that your mojo didn't take a vacation while you are sick. Your card is lovely.

Kathie, your card is so bright and happy. I love the butterflies. They really add tht final touch. I am sure your sister will love it. I wish I could say I relaxed today but I desided I needed to clean my house. I even shampooed carpets. Six hours later I finished and I Have a clean and shiny home. Work has been crazy because my boss has been out sick for almost three weeks and our home office put me in charge. I am doing my job plus my boss's job with lots of help from the other department heads. It has been crazy busy. My boss may be in on Wednesday for a few hours..But, it is going to be along hall for his recovery. It may take up to a year. I hope you have a great weekend too. I hope your get feeling better soon.
