I have been resting .

I am not a resting kind of girl
the dreaded flu has made a house call .

Today I feel much better  .

I so miss my little grandbabies company
I know I need a few more days of rest .

So I am using this blue sky,feeling better,rest day
to turn
winter dreams into summer wishes .


 looking at the lovely new spring seed catalogs
the winter garden on a
blue sky
feeling better
rest day

Thank you for sharing my feel better rest day with me !!



  1. When forced to slow down it helps to have something beautiful to rest with :-)
    Have a lovely quiet day, Dottie.
    May the Lord heal you and restore your strength real soon!

  2. Dottie, hoping you will feel much better tomorrow! Makes us realize how lucky we are to have our health when we spend a few days under the weather....

  3. I sure am glad you are feeling better! Sweet post.

  4. What beautiful linens you have. I have had some of my most creative moments while recovering from being ill. I hope that you are better soon. Take extra care.

  5. I too have been sick all week and actually have enjoyed time at home and resting. The quiet has been wonderful after a busy few months and the holidays.

  6. I really DID share your rest day with you! I hope you feel MUCH better today! I twisted my back and sat with a heating pad most of the day! I got up and down all day to do little chores...I hate sitting around when I see so much that needs to be done! But my back feels better today and I hope you are well, too! HUGS! ♥♥♥ Wish we were close enough to take a walk together today! ♥♥♥

  7. Oh dear lady.....get well soon....It does seem that quite a few of my blogging friends have come down with the awful bug!!

    Giving you a hug,


  8. I hope you feel better soon, you are smart to rest especially with such beautiful linens! Looking and dreaming through a pile of seed catalogs is among my favorite things to do.
    Hope the blue sky continues where you are and you are back on your feet soon...

  9. I'm sorry to have found you on a day when you're not feeling so great. Hope that by now you're back up and at'em. Just wanted to thank you for stopping by and for becoming a follower. I'm going to stay and peek around here for a while...hope you don't mind.

  10. So lovely! Hubby and I are tucked in watching some tv. Got kids 'checking in' during this wet icy stuff. Be glad when they all are tucked in too. My but we are blessed! Hope your recovery is fast and your rest is lovely!

  11. Hope your feeling much better. This flu really packs a punch.Nothing warms a winter day like seed catalogs and planning for spring.
    feel better soon, Annette

  12. Yes, pay attention to what your body says it needs. "Rest," then rest. Even when you are feeling great, a little rest is good for you.
    I will be thinking about you and wishing you well!

  13. I hope you feel better soon, that your rest day works wonders for you and the warmth of the sunshine brightens your heart. I loved your photos especial your beautiful butterfly, they are such a delight to watch.

    Wishing you well very soon. xxx

  14. Sorry to hear you had the flu, but happy that you're starting to feel better Dottie.
    Sounds like you are using the resting time well :)
