MARCH MADNESS!

Greetings, dear reader!

I am happy to report that the rumors of my death have been (slightly) exaggerated! I'm baaaaaaaaack! Today is the last day of my antibiotic and apparently the first day of my recovery from the dread malaise that has afflicted me! 


And I have already got my Happy Homemaker Tag finished for the month! As I shared with you last time, (I think...if not, go to my monk blog and check it out: http://thecontemporarymonk.blogspot.com/2011/03/lenten-season.html) March is madness for me! Good madness to be sure, but madness all the same!

Anyway, I thought I'd get my tag done early...sorry for the terrible photo...I'm not sure why my scanner is now failing me. Don't you just love the handmade buttons? I know cherries have little to do with March, but I just envisioned green as "fresh" and fresh made me think "fruit" and...well...that's the scary way my mind works!

(Sheesh! A computer, camera and now printer/scanner all in the course of a few months. I'm having techno withdrawals! Since NONE of these happy little items are inexpensive little trinkets, I shall have to save and budget and work some kind of financial magic to have them all again.) This is the back of the tag...and it's much clearer...again, no idea why.

Anyway, hope you enjoy! Going to post over at E's "Happy Homemaker Tag" website! Hugs!

What a joyful, beautiful tag, Paula!

So sorry you've been sick--I've been battling a bug, myself--no fun, is it?!

Hope your technological woes are fixed soon--that's sure no fun, either!

Wishing you a beautiful day, my friend!

Hey Paula...

I am such a slug! Thank you, thank you ALL who participated in the Valentine swap! I got the CUTEST valentines in the mail...and got sick before I could post them all! Once I get a decent camera again, you WILL see them! Thank you all so much for helping me through the Valentine Debacle of 2011! Just one of many I'm sure!

I am so glad to see you are back!!!!! My son got this bug and he was down for a week! Finally went to the doc and got antibiotics and an inhaler...they wanted him to do breathing treatments at home but he couldn't afford the machine....he is feeling much better now. Got to stay home awhile as he got his boss sick and then his boss got his daughter sick...not good! LOL Hope everyday is better! :):) Hugs, Sandy

Welcome back to the land of the living. I need to get on my tag too as I get so stumped on those I really have to work at it unless I'm totally hit up by an inspiration which doesn't always happen. I love what you came up with. Hope no repeats of this sickness come back at you dear friend. Take Care and God Bless.
