Tea Time ~ Report Cards and Stationary ~ 1/27/17



Grab a cup of tea, coffee, hot chocolate or your favorite drink
while I share a few things that made me smile this week :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 
I usually write this post and have it ready to go by Thursday evening.  Last night I just wasn't feeling it!  I was blah and "bloomy" (blue and gloomy mixed).  I feel a bit better after a good night's sleep and even though I almost skipped posting my 5 smiles, I felt that I needed to think happy thoughts to get the day started off on the right foot.  So here we go:
 

 
~I've been sick since the first of January but finally went to the doctor last week and got and inhaler and an antibiotic.  I can honestly say I am feeling much better!  Here's to some good meds :)


~It snowed this week.  Big, fluffy, sticky snowflakes.  It was beautiful!  Laken had a lot of fun out making a "snowgirl".  It was a beautiful drive to school the next morning :)


~The girls got their report cards this week.  I was a bit leery to see their grades because they've missed so much school this winter due to illness.  We just keep passing it back and forth to each other.  However, they both got all A's!  One proud mama here :)


~We had 67 people sign up for the Pen Pal endeavor.  I hope that everyone has made contact with their new pen pal.  I have and it is so much fun!  I made a special trip to Staples looking for some pretty Stationary.  I couldn't find anything I like anywhere else.  I also got some cute stickers!  I love stationary!


 
~Sign-ups for the Favorite Color Swap are still open.  Come help me celebrate my 39th Birthday!  Click HERE to read more and join in  :)

  3. What pretty stickers.
    I love the way your road is clear even though it's been snowing. Over here it would be slushy and slippery and awful to drive on. But yours looks really pretty!

  15. I am glad your feeling better. I had a cold too for a couple of weeks and then pink eye. It's is finally gone. Don't know where the heck I got that! Never got it when teaching preschool now I get it. Weird.
    I loved signing up for the pen pal! I've sent two cards. It's fun.
    I can't wait for the swap! I signed up for that too! Feel free to come over and link the swap announcement or your posts at the Fabulous Party over at my blog. Here's this weeks link:

  16. Well done on the report cards. You look like you have had some serious snow. Wonderful. Glad you are feeling better. B x

  17. The FFF is a big help with less that ideal weeks. Sometimes it is even more valuable to me then than when it's a great week overflowing with good things.

    I'm sorry you've been sick! Seems like there is something going around all over. Glad to hear you're turning a corner.

    That snow is beautiful, but I'm glad I don't live where we get it much. :-)

    Good work and congratulations to your daughters on their report cards!

  22. Hope you all feel better soon, Colletta. The colds/flu going around this winter seem to linger for a long time. The snowy drive is a very pretty way to begin the day.

  27. Oh gosh we have had the sickness in our house too. My husband has had it for about a month. I've just had the sinus issues, but haven't been coughing like him. Glad you went to the Dr. and got some help. Brrr....it looks cold there! It's cold here too, but our snow has melted. I don't miss it!
