Still Coughing In Alabama!!

I want to thank everyone for the get well wishes!  I started coughing yesterday morning. It is real bad when I talk a lot or get real hot. Don't have to worry about getting hot here in the Mobile Home!..No central Heat!!! Yes, It is still a work in progress. I think I forgot to say my hubby is running new duct work through out the trailer and in the sun room. Last year we heated with little stand up electric heaters, I have never been so cold since we lived in a old house when I was a teenager. That house had 2 fireplaces and a floor furnace. I have always had central heating since I have been married... Till last year. I would feel like it is a big adventure if I was younger.  lol My bones hurt in the cold and I have been sick the past winters. Hubby is putting in new ducts and it decided to only get in the 40's during the past 2 days.. and me sick too!!  Today, I went to Wally World and bought another heater... The new one we bought last year, quit on us. I hope to have vents installed this weekend and heat going by this coming Monday. I did say HOPE... Hubby called me yesterday checking on me.. I said I was freezing! He asked, What are you doing?. I responded by saying I was getting a cool drink out of the refrig, and it sure was warmer in the there than it was in the kitchen!.. I made it back to the bedroom with my drink and took my meds and went to sleep. Bedroom was only room that was warm and toasty.  lol
I made for my uncle this memorial pillow for his mother, my grandma. I had made 3 for the sisters and now his. I have my mom's to stitch.

Blackbird Design - Remember Me. I stitched it on cream linen with the called for hand-dyed thread, Aged Pewter. Buttons and lace are from FPD's ( grandma) sewing box.  Well, I need to go rest before I start cooking dinner.  Till Later......

Oh dear...hope you are feeling better. I'm always freezing. I don't get "warm" until it's 90 degrees outside! Hope you get your central heat soon. Drink lots of green tea for your cold. It makes all the green icky in your nose go away. hee,hee,hee. ;)

We are too cold to be without heat. I cannot believe I am saying this but do some laundry so you can turn the dryer on! OR bake some goodies for those grand kids. Go get some antibiotics before that cold takes over. Hugs

Keep warm and feel better. It's time for one of those Lazy things--the Snuggie Jammies--they have been advertising on TV. Your ornament is beautiful.
