The House of Sick

Ever have one of those weeks that just disappears and when you look back on it, you can't remember much positive about it? This past week was sort of like that. Well, the title says it all. Our house has been afflicted with a nasty stomach virus, first one person, then the next, all in a nice, tidy order. Unfortunately the hubby and I overlapped a day - which was not a good day. Today was the first day we are all completely better. It was glorious in Portland today, with temps near 60, which was a nice bonus.

In the middle of all of the sick was Valentine's day. I had a nice little V-day post planned, but it will have to wait for next year because this year that was my sickest day. At one point, I stumbled down to the office and found these beauties on my desk. So sweet!

Then, later in the day the hubby brought me a present I had completely missed. You know I am sick if I miss a present wrapped in bright red paper with my name on it! In it, I found this big ole box of tea.
This is a particularly fragrant Jasmine tea I have been enjoying lately. I was almost out and my hubby noticed and thought to go to the huge Asian grocery store to pick some up for me. He says they only had these 100 packs, but I was very pleased. This is a much better gift for me than diamonds and he knows it. Love him!

Knitting has been a little slow. I knit a couple more blocks for the Great American Afghan for the shop, but as with all of them, the pictures don't look like anything - so no pictures. I did get to knit one of them several times because I could not seem to follow the most basic instructions. It's times like those that it's best just to put the needles down and walk away. Amazingly, after I had recovered from my illness, I was able to whip that particular block out in one evening. Sigh. Hopefully I'll have something more interesting to post about some time this week...perhaps more socks?
