Friday's Fave Five, 1/18/13

Link to Friday's Fave Five blog

1. Last night I went to the kitchen around 6:00 to make a salad for Mike when he came in from work and some clam chowder for me because of the cold, rainy night.  It felt really good to get in the kitchen, to work and get busy - the first time in a couple of weeks.  

2. Overall, cold rainy weather is very energizing for me.  I love it.  Yes, that's weird.

3. On Wednesday, I was still really tired from going back to work, and Mike was still tired also.  Then my folks called to say they were going to Publix and would bring us a roasted chicken with two sides and rolls, if we would like them to.  Yes, we would like them to.  Thank you very much!!

4. Every day this week I have felt a little better.  Did not have any huge coughing spells yesterday and taught fairly hard all day. (Although I can tell that today - Friday - may not be quite as good.  Have to remember that this is not always all upward.)  Mike has slowly been doing better every day also.  His and hers pneumonia - not recommended as a bonding experience!

5. I am very thankful for good, strong, prescription, controlled-drug cough syrups!  Do not know what I would have done without them the past two weeks.

So glad you're both on the mend.

I don't mind some rainy days, but two weeks is stretching it for me. :-)

It's lovely to have someone bring dinner by, especially when you're recovering.

Glad you're on the mend Ann - pneumonia is no picnic.

And how great to get dinner delivered! A real treat!

Hope you're able to have a restful weekend.

Blessings

Oh dear, both of you with pneumonia. I'm glad you are feeling better and that you were cared for with food deliveries here and there. I delivered soup this week to our ailing son and his wife. God bless you with complete healing soon. Have a great weekend.

Two of you with pneumonia! That must of been so hard but glad to hear that you had some good medicine that actually helped and that you are on the mend. Those store meals really help to take off the pressure of cooking. Keep feeling better!

Wow -- his and hers pneumonia. Glad that's getting better!

A roasted chicken from Publix always sounds good to me! Hope you just keep getting better. Take care!

Wow, both of you down with pneumonia must have been awful. I'm so glad you're better. You are so lucky to have parents nearby to help you and bring you meals!
