A very big thank you to everyone for all your get well wishes but this nasty cold just doesn't want to be done with me yet but I am trying to get motivated and get back into blogging and sewing again. I made these little cotton and linen coasters this afternoon.......they even come with their own little bag. I have really been liking sewing things with linen lately, it is such a wonderful fabric to work with, apart from the fraying of course.
Yesterday I took my first walk since I came down with this cold, it felt good to be out in the fresh air and blow all those nasty germs away. Of course hubby came along and snapped a few pic's of some more wonderful animals and birds. This little coyote was looking for something for lunch I think, he didn't seem bothered with us at all. I just love this little duck, does he have the best 'hairdo' or what! I think this is my favorite pic of the day, it is a baby Great Blue Heron. Some people told us that there was one around but we just never seemed to be able to see it, until yesterday. He was so sweet and stood only about 5 feet or so from us while numerous cameras were taking his pic.
It really did feel good to be outside but I never intended to walk 5 miles or so. I was pretty wiped out when we returned home so it was into a hot tub, with of course my lovely soaps and bubble bar that my daughter gave me last week. I have to say that I love all the soaps but I really love the buttermilk one, and the bubble bar makes so many bubbles that even after an hour the bubbles were still lovely and fluffy.
Finally I have to say a big thank you to Bettina who blogs at Wishes in Pink for the sweet tag that she gave me, as we both speak different languages it is a bit hard to figure out but I am persistent so hang in there Bettina and I am sure I will get it!
Have a lovely Thursday !
