Ren said it was a strange Friday

Ok, I want a laptop that plays Eva Cassidy songs too, mama

Well, I came home and took a 4 hour nap after supper. I was exhausted. I probably have taken more Tylenol in the past 2 days than ever because for the first time in 17 years of getting flu shots, I had a reaction to this one. I actually ran fever for 2 days with aches. I know it's not a live vaccine but something was strange about this one.

I woke in panic at 11:30p to remember I needed to get an order to the Sampler Girl by 12 midnight, so busy on the net at the last minute. She was having a 5 dollar sale on most of her patterns by 12 midnight! Such a good deal.
I had a very pleasant dream while I was napping though that Brandon came home and very happy. He looked so healthy in this dream.
I'm up now with my sleeping off track but probably will go right back to sleep soon.

I'm interrupted right now by a hungry, blind Chichi wading his way down the hallway slowly to remind me I missed his bedtime treat............ok, he has a half of a fruit snack bar for his treat and tucked back in bed. Ren is amazed at the computer. I think he hears the music in the background and he tilts his head and wants to walk on the computer keyboard to hear more. See pic above.........this is new for him. We have this nightly ritual and if even one step like his bedtime snack or potty break before bed, if one step is not in succint, this throws his Alzheimer's brain off for the night. I actually didn't realize he could hear the music out of my laptop until tonight. He's funny!

I want you to know that I took the scenic route (I call it) home from work and the leaves, even on a cloudy, rainy day were beautiful. They looked like jewels in so many colors.
I'm hoping for sun tomorrow to get good pictures because I think they are peaking this weekend.
But for right now, it's rainy here, I can still hear it on the roof top.....makes for good sleeping.........


  1. So sorry about your flu symptoms. I've heard of only one other person that has done that with the vaccine.

    I had such a severe case of the flu two years ago that I thought I'd always get the shot but I just can't make myself do it.

    Hugs to you and Ren.

  2. I'm with Parsley, I am so sorry about your icky's kiddo :)

    Did you get your order in on time?

    Ren is such a little lovie, I feel protective of him myself, our little one :)

    Hugs to you both and I hope this comment finds you sound asleep and sleeping late this morning.

  3. I agree, I think this is the peak of the leaves too. I have such a gorgeous view out my window.
