Those Naughty Germs

“It is dainty to be sick, if you have leisure and convenience for it” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Well... it looks like it's happened: I have a throat that feels as though someone took sandpaper to it. All day yesterday I told myself I was just thirsty and drank and drank and drank, to no avail.

Now, instead of just hoping and praying I don't get sick, I'm hoping and praying I won't be too sick to go to the fair on Thursday.

I'm so discouraged. I've been healthy all year until now. I just doesn't seem fair that the ONE day I want to be healthy, I may not be. *sigh* DD is distraught and feels as though it's all her fault.

In the meantime, I'm still giving myself my cold bombs and hoping this will either not get any worse until after Thursday, or get worse and then better by Thursday. The weather for Friday and Saturday doesn't look good, so Thursday is pretty much it for our choice of days.

::: fingers crossed :::


Still don't have DD's header for her shop. *sigh*

But, we're going to start working on earring next. She's got a good eye for color and design, so we should have some interesting items coming out. At least by the time the shop goes up, it'll be fully stocked! LOL...


You Crave a Sensual Adventure

Life has gotten a bit dull for you lately, and you are looking to indulge all of your five sense.

You want an adventure that includes amazing food, beautiful scenes, perfect background music, enchanting smells, and sweet air.

Whether you're in Hawaii or Paris, you want to drink every part of your experience in.

You crave both luxury and novelty. And you'll savor every taste, every sound, and every sight for years!

Get well soon, Marianne.

At our fair in Dallas, if they notice anyone is sick when they get to the entrance, they will turn them away. They don't want to take any chances.

--which I guess is better than nothing, but people can be infectious at least a day before they show symptoms.

Sorry about the sore throat. Darn it all. Hope you feel better soon.

Dru said...

oh I'm so sorry. {{{Marianne}}}

I hope you feel better by Thursday.

You Crave a Cultural Adventure

Life has gotten a bit routine for you lately, and you'd like to broaden your perspective.

You want to learn and grow from your adventure. You want to know the place you visit as well as your home town.

You are an open minded and curious traveler. You're all about immersing yourself in local customs, no matter how foreign they are.

Whenever you're in a new place, you try to speak the language, eat the food, and meet the locals. After all, that's what traveling is all about!

That's what I love about traveling.

Have a good and healthy Tuesday.

Surely 48 hours will be time enough to recover! I'd try for as much sleep as possible between now and then. That seems to help me!

OH hope you feel a lot better before Thursday!!

Sounds like DD's merchandise is coming along nicely :)

Hugs, sweetie. I hope it's short-lived and you feel better by fair day.

You Crave an Unpredictable Adventure
Life has gotten a bit too boring for you lately, and you're really looking to stir things up.
You couldn't imagine planning your great adventure. That would go against the whole point of it!

All you need is a plane, train, or bus ticket to anywhere. You'll make the rest up as you go along.
You want to visit every corner of the world and have many different experiences. The sooner you start, the more you'll see.

Oh, no! I hope everything you're doing to combat the cold germs works its wonders! Crossing my fingers for you and the fair visit! Can't wait to see what lovelies your daughter is making. After all I have a daughter that likes lovelies. *G*

Take care!
