Where The Ailing Small Family Reside.



Three days, of gloom and cold.

Yesterday I stood at my window and all day there were rainbows kissing the hills between rain clouds.



And each day began with the hope that everyone was well,
and each day someone wasn't.

It seems our long-overdue turn of a flailing household is upon us.



But as always, a point is reached where we are able to stop hoping and accept it and in some ways embrace it,
because a rest is welcome, even when forced upon us.



And so we'll continue the theme of quiet, low-lying days of snuffles and coughs,
and relish the fact that it's Friday and we can be guilt free about staying home.

And hopefully the weekend proves the tonic we need for booting the last of the malaise from our home,
and I have happy, healthy things to blog about next week!

Happy Friday!

A house full of sickness is not much fun but you are right in that it is also a time to slow down and wait till things are better. I love your beautiful photo's, thanks for taking me to another world. Hope all are on the mend soon, xo

I do love that picture with the teasels against the sky.....beautiful

I hope you get rid of your coughs and snuffles soon. We have them still lingering here. Such a horrid cough it is too, doing the rounds.

I love that you can be so bright and optimistic with an ailing household. I know I would be cranky and unbearable. Hope the weekend gives you the rest you all need to recover.

Lots of rest and chicken soup (if you're not vegetarian!).

I never feel guilty about staying home. Only if I have no makeup on and schlepp around like a homeless chick in sweats.

Beautiful post- feel better!

Good health to you and your family. The visit to your world improves my spiritual health in the meantime.

Your pictures are dreamy. And living in such a place, resting peacefully seems like it would come easily. Hope everyone is well soon.
