Hot woman in a cold place

I'm back in Norway after our cruise. Unfortunately I have gotten a terrible flue that has put me in bed for a week. Today the fever has peeked at 104.9 and I feel quite exhausted and HOT! My hubby is away and my awesome 12 year old is taking very good care of me. Outside it is MINUS 10 degrees Fahrenheit and I'm grateful my home is warm and comfortable. I'm hoping to find my bloginspiration soon. Until then: take care and be blessed y'all (hey...I used to live in Tulsa!)


I took this photo out my kitchen window today before I crashed on our couch. It is quite beautiful here!

OMSIDER har jeg tatt utfordringen din, kjære! Så kom og støtt meg på siden min, er du grei... jeg har trolig tråkket over interiørbloggegrensen.... ;-)
Løøøw.

Miss Moneypenny said...

Halla!
Jo, takk, da din pappa fortalte om bloggingen din ble jeg nysgjerrig og inspirert. Så jeg kan ikke mye om dette fenomenet ennå, men jeg ble som sagt inspirert av deg, og kopierte sågar litt av teksten din for å komme igang. Forhåpentligvis blir jeg litt mer selvgående etterhvert. Fant jo ut at vi hadde noe til felles akkurat DER. Fikk dere forresten den Nespressomaskinen dere blgget om? Jeg har nemlig en "hemmelig mentor", som gav meg en til jul. Veldig glad for den. En venn i verden man kan stole på når alt annet går galt, og sannsynligvis vil jeg ha en liten inntekt fremover på å markedsføre sminken han er levrandør for (e.l.f.) (den er forresten veldig bra, he, he)derfor jeg trengte denne bloggen litt raskt...
avslutningsvis vil jeg bare nevne at den historien din fra Spania (om grandma' Paris Hilton),var helt ubetalelig. Har vist den til mange på jobb. Vi holdt på å dø av latter!! Speak soon!! love xxx
PS! Bli en "follower, da vel!!"

Chrisy said...

So pleased you're in a warm home...hope that the fever has passed and you are feeling well again...

Crystal said...

Hey isn't there some "Norwegian bug" you can catch on cruise ships ;) Just kidding. I love cruising. Your blog is fantastic! I do hope you feel better soon.... blessings!

Hey Gal! Just wanted to say I enjoyed your blog, and I also visited your son's blog. He's a doll. I found your site through SITS, so Happy SITS day. Come by and chat when you get a chance. Please get to feeling better. I can't imagine having that high of a fever! I always thought anything above 103 could be fatal. I never let mine get above 101 without going to the doctor. You are a brave soul.

Love & Prayers,
