It's been a rough week. Last Tuesday we were scheduled to leave for Phoenix and Colorado to visit the last two baseball stadiums and go to the Grand Canyon. On Monday I got diagnosed with the flu (and yes, I did have a flu shot). The doctor put me on Tamiflu and antibiotics knowing we were leaving the next day for vacation. When we got to the airport they cancelled our flight due to runway maintenance...seriously?? We spent the day at the airport trying to get on another flight, all the while I felt sicker and sicker. After eight hours we threw in the towel and went home. I then spent the next 48 hours sleeping. It was the craziest thing. Although I am feeling much better, I still don't have all of my energy back. Imagine how bad it would have been without a flu shot.
The weather here is finally starting to become spring-like. I thought I would add a bit of spring to my kitchen. I found the pitcher at Home Goods and filled it with some faux flowers.
Everything looks better on a tray. This tray was bought at Pottery Barn a few years ago. All I did was line it with wrapping paper to coordinate with my kitchen granite. A basket filled with eggs and a few candles and voila...instant spring feeling. Hopefully now that I am feeling better I can get back to some other projects.
On a separate note, I 'd like to wish all those running in the Boston Marathon today good luck!
