Playing Catch Up!

Let's just say that I haven't had the stomach flu since......since I can't even remember when!
But when it hits, it hits and takes you out for a few days :( 
It sure makes you grateful for the days when you're actually healthy.
Now I'm just catching up from the many things neglected in the past few days, so I'm sorry if you haven't really heard from me.
Now I'm back!!! Or at least I think I'm back!!!

No, really, here is some pump it up inspiration to help kick the blah feeling....
"Creativity is maximized when you are living in the moment".
Now "put that in your pipe and smoke it!" courtesy of Maggie Smith =)
Just one of many favorite Downton Abbey references.  If you haven't watched that show yet, you really need to get on it.
Here are a few pictures from a recovery weekend:
Thanks to Charles, he came to my rescue with crackers and 7up which I sipped out of a mug.
Soooo you know that point where the only thing that could make you feel halfway human is a shower?!?! Yeah, after doing just that, I made myself get in the car and head over to Charles' belt testing.  I had never been to one of his testings before, so I couldn't miss this one.  Plus, one can only stay in bed and sleep so long.  So proud of you, sweetheart!!!  

 It's also times like these when it's cold and freezing outside that I'm really really grateful for an indoor gym!!!  But tricking myself into thinking I was well enough yesterday to jump back into things wasn't such a hot idea.  Today was a different story.  Slowly but surely, we're making progress in the right direction. 
 Maybe it's because I've been sick, maybe not, but I've been craving plums, grapefruits, bananas, pot roasts and stew!!! Really kinda random, I know. 
Of course many things involve garlic too!
Oh and don't forget red pepper, gotta love some kick!
Any other garlic lovers out there???
Sorry for the random, but I guess catching up involves random.

Get ready for tomorrows Wednesday Challenge!!!!!
It's all ready to go and I'm super excited to share it with all of you =)

Stay healthy!


  1. I love garlic. It is one of my favorite smells in the kitchen...reminds me of my grandmas's house. Glad you are feeling better! Looking forward to the Wednesday challenge!

  2. Congrats to your man!!

    I love much that I can eat it raw. Yep. But it's really good for us apparently!

    Glad to know you're better now... the flu is awful. And it's true that we only realize once we have it how much we take for granted. Feeling sick takes a lot away.

  3. Way to go Charles! I'm so glad you were finally able to make it to a testing Maggie! So happy to hear your feeling better! Gotta love Maggie smith lol that is my favorite quote she's the best and garlic is amazing!:)

    1. Ps I cannot wait for the Wednesday challenge!
