No, not again!

It's been a very nice, sunny day today. This is a welcome change. The past few days have been very rainy. We received at least 4 inches of rain. I do so LOVE the rain, but when it takes several days for it to finish, that gets a little old.

So today is beautiful and I had planned to be outside preparing the yard for winter. Gardens need clearing, etc. Unfortunately I don't feel like going out or working. I've caught a cold. Jadyn has one too. Even though we do our best to prevent illness, it still happens.

I took Jadyn to preschool on Monday and also had a mini conference with her teacher. I picked up some things at the store and then I was ready to just pick Jadyn up early. I could feel my cold coming on strong and my joints starting to ache. I just wanted to go home.

My little preschooler had made me a crown and also had a gold star for me to wear. How sweet is that? They learned about dinosaurs and she colored a couple of dinosaur pictures, but she also thought to make me a crown. I just thought it was the cutest thing.

She wanted me to put my crown on at the classroom door and so I did. I admit I felt a little silly
walking down the halls of the school. The other moms and staff just kind of gave me that little knowing look and smile, as if they were thinking, "Nice crown...."

Here's a photo of me with my crown on. Now, I do not love this picture of myself at all. It must have been a bad hair day, and what's with the baby bangs? I do not have baby bangs! Oh well, I'm posting this photo of me so you can see my sweet crown. If you look closely, you can see my gold star.
Queen for a day

Here's a photo of Jadyn when she fell asleep on the floor while I was resting on the couch. This just never happens. Jadyn's had a bad cough with her cold. She has a hair-trigger gag reflex. She slept here for about 10 minutes, woke up, coughed a couple of times and tossed her cookies big time, right there on the floor. Lucky me. She looks so sweet here, who could've imagined the ugliness to come?

It's all going to be just fine, because the doctor is in. She wanted to give me a check up today, and I needed it. I hope whatever she injected me with will put me on the road to recovery. ☻
I know that many of you have been sick or have sick family. I hope that all of you will soon be on the mend!

What a beautiful girl! She remind me of my Tieren who we adopted from the Hengfeng orphanage in Jiangxi, January 2005. Just gorgeous!
