Tis the Season...

I can't be sick, I can't be sick, I can't be sick....I woke up Saturday morning with a sore throat and snuffly nose. Just a cold I'm sure. Only thing is, I'm helping to cook a fancy church dinner for 102 friday and I can't be sick! Traverse City cherry chicken, stuffed pork loin, and my best vegetarian lasagna for the few that won't eat meat. Redskin potatoes, green beans, field greens with almonds, mandarin oranges and Earl's homemade raspberry viniagrette. Oh, and he is making 3 kinds of cheesecake and a chocolate torte for dessert. I love a man that knows his way around the kitchen:>) So, now it is 5 p.m. and I am slipping into my cozy flannel p.j.'s grabbing a box of tissues and some tea and watching t.v. Do I have a million things I could do around the house? Could I be working on etsy projects? Sure, except I am pretty sure you don't want my germs on the etsy stuff, right? So I am giving myself the night off and praying that I am all better before the dinner. I will be sharing recipes, and the decorations, just not tonight. Send some prayers up for me if you get a chance:>) It's only a cold but I feel like crap.


  1. Praying for sure!!!

    Long distance (((((HUGS)))))


  2. Oh hon, I hope that you start feeling better soon! Hugs.

  3. Hi Kathy -
    Take care of yourself! I'll pray that you get over this quickly. I've been under the weather with the same thing for the past week. For some strange reason colds usually hang on longer for me than most other people. I'm doing better today and actually got out and about a bit. I decided this is the one and only cold I'll have all season!

  4. Oh, I hope you feel better after getting some rest.

    When is Earl going to the cabin? Is Clarence going to be alone? Let me know...

  5. Colds stink!! Hope you feel better quickly!! Laurie

  6. awww.. mom that sucks! I hope you feel better!

    ON a side note.... CHOCOLATE TORTE??? THREE, i said THREE kind of cheescake? What the crap on toast man???? You;'d think that I would be the one partying since Im off at college, but I guess that while I'm away my family will play lol. crazy people. just for this, I am afraid I am going to have to demand extra trips to borders, and possibly some sort of extravagant peace offering... say... some of that torte wrapped up and saved for me????? lol OK I love you byebye

  7. Ack. I'm so very sorry. Think good thoughts, gargle with salt water and rest. Hope you feel better soon.

  8. I just got over being sick. It wasn't a cold, chills, fever, headache and I think my brain was swollen because I seem to have gotten extremely stupid. I even was good and got my flu shot two weeks ago.

    I hope you feel better, three days coming, so let's think they passed already, three days here, that makes Wednesday...which means you should be feeling much better by Thursday, you'll be there Friday with a slightly pink nose and sniffles behind you!!!! Three kinds of cheesecake huh? Maybe you'll feel terrific!

    Blessings, Karen

  9. Have someone go out and get some AIR BORNE at your drug store or get the store's brand. IT helps you feel better quicker and I've used it for a couple of years. It's all natural with vitamin, mineral, and good stuff for your body. I don't get paid, it's just works..
    Feel better soon.

  10. I hope you feel better soon Kathy! Here is a virtual hug..

  11. Oh I hate it for you! I'll pray for you. Friday is a long way'll be better by then for sure!

  12. Hi poor thing, nothings worse then a stuffed up nose...I went for my flu shot today and was surprised by all the really sick people in the waiting room yacking up a lung...too early for all those winter time ailments....Feel better!!

  13. Hope you are feeling better. It is hard to sit still when you have so much on your mind about the things you need to be doing. Putting on your jammies and taking an evening off sounds wonderful. I will keep you in my prayers. Debbi

  14. I am so sorry, Kathy. I totally agree with the Airborn thing. No research but with my co-workers and I there have been very good results. It does not work against bronchitis,BTW. LAS

  15. OOOOHHHHHHHHH! Feel better! Take care of yourself!

  16. I am sorry you aren't feeling well.

    That dinner sounds very nice! Will you be sharing some recipes with us? Please?

    How great that your husband can cook and likes too! My brother is that way - he's great in the kitchen. That is not a gift my darling has, good thing he has me and our 4 daughters! hee hee

    Hope you feel better soon. I have heard that if you catch it early enough, Zicam works great!

  17. Oh not a good time indeed. I hope you feel better soon!


  18. Aw Kath I am so sorry you are not feeling well!
    Wish I was there... I'd help!

    Take care of yourself sweetpea!

    Prayers being said!


  19. sorry you are under the weather. Feel better soon and I'll bet the dinner will all get done so don't worry about it. (i know..easy to say, hu)

  20. Hi Sweet Kathy,

    Oh, I am so sorry to hear that you are battling a cold - definitely sending up prayers for you girl!! Meantime, please take the opportunity to REST and not fret...all will be well and you will be good to go in plenty of time for your commitments...

    "A merry heart does good, like medicine..." Proverbs 17:22

    Surround yourself with your favorite things, be cozy and warm, and relax in Him...

    Big HUGS and Blessings to you!!
    Becky S.

  21. I hope you're feeling better today! I think Airbornne works. I always take it when I'm beginning to feel something come on. Also plain aspirin works for me too.



  22. I hope you feel better real soon. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Patricia :o)

  23. Hi Kathy

  24. Hi Kathy,
    I hope that you are feeling better and were able to get things done! the 'crud' is going around here too..

  25. Are you feeling better today??? I sure hope so!!!

    Hugs to you,

  26. Whoa .....I hope you are feeling better! There is just nothing worse than getting sick with a million and one things hanging over us. The dinner though sounds delicious, cooking for 102!
    Now that's amazing!
