I had planned on having a post up with the tutorial for this little wall hanging on Monday but……it didn’t happen. I babysat my grandchildren for a couple of days and……the flu bug hit us. I didn’t even have enough energy or motivation to put up Linky Tuesday yesterday. Sorry.

We went to see the dinosaurs on Saturday and it was kind of disappointing for the money. $17 for me and $19 for each of the girls and we were done within an hour.

Afterwards I got a few photos of them in the leaves and we went to dinner. About two hours later my oldest granddaughter started complaining of an upset stomach and it wasn’t long before we in the bathroom…….spent most of the night in there. On Sunday she mostly spent the day laying on the couch and was able to go to school on Monday. Well….guess who got sick on Monday???? Me. I had a miserable drive home that evening…..there is nothing like your own home when you’re sick.

I can’t remember when I had the flu this bad. My joints ached, and I even thought I was going to pass out a couple of times. Anyway, by yesterday morning the worst of it was over and I could finally sleep so that is what I did all day. Even today my stomach is gurgling and it is a good day to just read a book. Oh, I talked to my daughter yesterday and Monday night the youngest granddaughter got it.

These are photos I had ready for a post on Sunday.

    The stomach flu is always miserable! So sorry you all had to go and get sick!! When I was in Texas in January and February taking care of my two granddaughters, I got the flu (even though I had been good and gotten a flu shot)…102 fever and all the rest just sucked lemons big time with I had to care for a 7 year old and 19 month old! Took me months to get back to normal. Glad you are on the mend! Love your pictures of your darling grands 🙂

  2. Oh poor you and the girls Connie! It sounds just miserable! I am glad you have passed the worst of it now and hope you get back to 100% very soon.
    The girls look adorable in the autumn leaves!

  3. At first I thought that was the name of your cute little quilt. Hope you are getting food down today & have a healthy weekend!

  4. Lorna McMahon says:

    Glad to hear you are feeling a little better, Connie. You poor girls!!! Take care of yourself. We'll still be here.

  5. Get well soon! Sounds awful how that flu hit you.

  6. Carole @ Fresh off the Frame says:

    Oh, gosh, I hope you feel better soon Connie. Your "leafy" shot of the girls is beautiful.

  8. glad to hear you are on the mend. love your table topper. your granddaughters are pretty.

    Hopefully you're feeling a little better, but there is a lot of it going around now. Two of our great granddaughters came down with it a couple of days ago and I hope it's out of the house by Thanksgiving since that's where we are going this year. Love your little PacMan quilt and it's so cute in pastels. Sending hugs to you for a quick recovery. What book are you reading? I listen to books all the time, so that way I can do most things while reading a book. lv2bquilting2@comcast.net

    Glad you're on the mend. Take care, take it easy. We will all be here when you are back.!

  12. Apple Avenue Quilts says:

    I had that one about a month ago. It was horrible! It took about four days to feel human again, so the end is in sight. Feel better soon!!!!!

  13. Carole @ From My Carolina Home says:

    Hope this passes soon and you are back to your self again. It is no fun to be sick, and this flu is brutal this year. Sweet little quilt, and I just finished piecing your pinwheel tiny quilt pattern in Christmas colors, will show it soon.

  14. You're right…there is no place like home when you are sick. Glad you are feeling a wee bit better.

  15. Feel better soon. We will await your return to health.

  16. I wondered where you were and I did think you were probably with the grandkids. Sorry everyone was sick. I went down that path recently and can vouch that it is no fun at all. I'm with Creatology … that little quilt makes me think of Pacman. Yep, I'm old, too. lol Glad you are back.

  17. Sally Hurley says:

    I was wondering where you had disappeared. Thanks for an update, although I'm sorry that you're battling the flu. No fun. Feel better soon!

  18. Crickets Corner says:

    Glad to hear you're feeling little better and all you need to do right now is rest up some more and get some kind of food down. Take it easy and feel better.

  19. That is a nasty way to end a fun weekend. Hope you ALL feel back to normal quickly. Stay curled up with a book today and enjoy a nap to help you get better.

  20. Createology says:

    So sorry you and the girls have been sick. That flu bug is nasty. I got my flu shot and hope the bug stays away. Love your little wall hanging and it reminds me of (yes I am old!) Pacman. Healing Energy Dear…
