Gitz Bits 2011: Week 3

We're going to go ahead and call this one "better late than never." :) Thanks for being so patient with me this week!

This was the Monday that my doctor came out to see me. I'm so blessed to have medical professionals who come to my home... the only drawback was that she came at 8:00 in the morning.

Needless to say, both she and Riley hung out with me in my pajamas that day. :)

Along with all-day pajamas, being sick makes me even more in love with my hats. This is my favorite one this winter... it's a Peter Grimm hat and is the softest, most comfortable one I've ever worn. I can even have it on if I have a migraine, and if you've ever had a migraine you know that's saying something!

I took quite a few of the photos for this week's Gitz Bits with the new texting machine. :) They aren't the best quality pictures, but it was pretty handy for catching Riley off guard. Most mornings we woke up to the house being around 59* or 60*, which is super cold, but helps me breathe quite a bit better.

Needless to say, he spent most of his time cuddled under the covers.

By Thursday, the medications had me throwing up around the clock, so Riley was more inclined to sleep on the pillow rather than cuddle up with me. But he dutifully stayed by my side every time I was in the bathroom getting sick.

He'd look at me with those pitiful eyes, and I have to admit that the sympathy does help a little. :)

On Friday I got a care package from the lovely Dayspring (in)courage staff. They periodically send bits of love out to us writers, and it just happened to come on a week where the love was even more appreciated by me.

I mean, what could be better than to get this book in my hot little hands?!?! If you haven't picked up Ann Voskamp's book for yourself yet, you MUST.

Trust me.

This gorgeous cross was in my package as well, and I have it in my bedroom where I can see it all the time. It's simple and meaningful and lovely, and very much appreciated.

Guys, I thought I had killed the un-killable plant. I am so not a green thumb, but this philodendron has managed to stay alive since I was in college. It's simple and doesn't flower, so I'm not yet allergic to it... which is even greater incentive for not killing it. But having not watered it for a month or two, I thought my luck had run out.

Luckily, after two days of watering it, the waning, pitiful leaves began to perk up to this state and hope took root again.

I'll let you know next week if it comes to a full revival. Smile
