happy hearts day

You may have wondered where we’ve been lately!  Well, we’ve been sick.  Again. Or still. Depends on your perspective, I guess. Sophia’s sinus & ear infections went away, and then she was sent home from school with a fever yesterday. A fever that went away rather quickly, thankfully. But my infection has only gotten worse, and now Jon seems to have my cough as well.

Jon and I both had to work this weekend (but not at the same time thankfully). I did feel well enough for a short while on Sunday to make Sophia a Valentine’s day dress (which she didn’t get to wear to school today, since she had to stay home). She did get wear it out to a work-related dinner we went to on Sunday evening. She’s quite taken with the heart-shaped felt pockets. She paired the dress with pink tights and dark pink shoes.  Quite lovely. It’s just a simple peasant dress, made with fabric found last month at Jo-Ann’s.

There’s snow on the mountains and it’s quite cold outside. I’m enjoying the cold, knowing that before we know it, it will be hot! A nice pot of soup is on the stove simmering away. Sophia has more energy than anything I’ve seen, so she’s playing while I try to get some work done for classes tomorrow. I’ll post a link to my work blog so you can see what we’re up to – I’m really excited about it.

We won’t be going up to Phoenix this weekend to take care of my mom during her foot surgery as planned, thanks to this lingering sickness – and Sophia and I are really disappointed. Let’s hope this round of sickness passes soon. Oh, and did I mention my morning – or rather, all-day sickness is back?
