Just another day...

You see that shameless little flirt in the center?   That little gal is celebrating a birthday today!   

I've been under the weather for awhile, so excuse the lack of a new photo since I haven't had the camera in my hand in days.  I could have dug through my old photo albums, but that requires energy that I haven't yet got.  This flu bug has been a booger.  And did I mention my back was acting up again?   I hope to get back to blog reading and commenting real soon, I can't wait to see what all of you have been up to.  I am getting better, slowly but surely!

The weather has been gorgeous and warm the last few days and I've been sitting out in the sun for short periods of time hoping the sun would burn away the flu bugs.  And, I've been making mental notes of what I should add to my ever growing to-do list.  One thing I've discovered about growing older, the to-do lists are less important than they used to be.  If it all gets done, that's great!  And if not, <insert shrug here>.

I've found the only good thing about being sick is that I get out of kitchen duty!  It's been soup, sandwiches, and fast food around here.  I think the birthday girl is feeling like something more substantial for dinner now.   Hmmmm.  Wonder what I can get ordered for me tonight? 

Until next time...


  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Hope the flu leaves you be for the celebration. Feel better soon. LOVE the photo. Take care.

  2. Happy Birthday!! gosh, i sure hope you are feeling better. no fun to be sick on your birthday. big hugs. & what a cute picture. (:

  3. If you have the cough... it takes forever to get rid of it.

    My Hubs is still coughing. I fared better than he did... but only because I was taking grapefruit seed extract.

  4. Happy Birthday to you...I am so sorry that you have the flu and I hope that today it goes away and you can celebrate in style tonight...

  5. Aw Gee, what a sorry Birhday present. Just not fair. Save the day and celebrate when you are feeling 100% and I hope that is very soon.

  6. Happy Birthday to YOU
    Happy Birthday to YooooU
    Happy Birthday Dear Cheryl
    Happy Birthday to YOU

  7. Happy Birthday! You definitely deserve a nice 'order in' meal today.
    I hope you feel better fast! Take care. Blessings, Pamela

  8. Oh my gosh, what an adorable photo!! Don't feel guilty about not taking photos recently when you can come up with such precious ones from the archives.
    I'm sorry to hear that you are still under the weather on your special day. I hope you still find happiness and maybe a piece of cake to celebrate.
    I think you are so right about the importance of the to do list at this stage of life. It may be one of the few good things about aging :-).
    Happy Birthday Cheryl and I'm sending healing thoughts your way.

  9. Happy Birthday! If it's Influenza A, it takes for ever to get over. the hubby had it 3-4 weeks ago and I can tell you he's still not back to his old self!
    Get rest!

  10. Sending you a big Happy Birthday. Sorry you're not feeling like celebrating. What an adorable little flirt you were. The little guy hugging you thinks so too.

    Tuck yourself in on the couch and watch a chick movie or two today. take care..

  11. Oh my gosh, ya'll are sooo cuuute! Look at those curls! My mom had blonde ringlets when she was a kid, too, but it's been dark brown since her teenage years!

    Great photo & here's to getting better faster! =)

  12. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHERYL!!! And I am so sorry you have been sick on your birthday, but at least getting better. This picture is the BEST, I'm glad you didn't post a new one, it is adorable!! And I'll let you in on a little secret. It's usually soup, sandwiches, and fast food around here even when I am healthy!

  17. Glad you're feeling better! We've missed you around here....
    Oh - and Happy Birthday! Order something YUMMY!

  18. I didn't know it was your birthday - HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU and many more.

    I have missed you - I guess you got one humdinger of a flu there.

    Are you on Facebook Cheryl?

    I hope you feel better.


  19. Glad you are on the mend- don't bounce up too quick- you sure don't want a relapse! Cute pic!

  20. Happy Birthday to YOU... So sorry that you are still not feeling well. Both George and I have had some kind of cold or bronchial thing....BUT--we haven't had any flu thank goodness..

    Take care of yourself and your back... Try to enjoy your birthday---but you can get hubby to take you out later to celebrate when you are well.


  21. Cheryl
    I bet you'll get whatever you ask for today! Happy B'Day!!
    I just got over the flu-it only lasted 24 hours for me. It's no fun, for sure,
    I'll be praying for you, my friend.
    Oh, and your photo is adorable!

  22. Happy Birthday Cheryl!!! I hope you continue feeling better. Eat something yummy for your day. You were a pretty little girl! Love those curls!

  23. Happy Birthday!

    I hope you are feeling 100% very soon. We both had the flu back in December and I sympathize with you.

    That is the cutest picture I have ever seen. You should have it enlarged and framed.

  24. Such a cute little girl you were! Happy Birthday Cheryl! AND I really do hope you feel 100% soon. One thing about being sick, the spirit is willing, but the body says no. Tell your spirit to slow down and let the body get better! Take care my friend, Susan

  25. I love that picture...guess this is late, but Happy Birthday...what did you order. I hope something good.

  26. Oh I'm so glad that I didn't miss this one. You are such a cutie pie! I love that photo. Who are the two little boys? Twins? Brothers? Cousins? One looks mighty annoyed by missing out on your attentions.

    Hope that you are feeling back to your normal self soon. Nasty old flu bug!

  27. All that and I forgot to say Happy Birthday!

  28. Sorry I missed your post yesterday, but I was busy helping my daughter celebrate hers! Mine is the 20th, a grandson's the 23rd, & a few more cousins splattered throughout the month. I love March! ; )

    Hope you are feeling much better soon. I know about the back problems too. It seems that my knee problem makes me walk different, causing my hip to hurt, causing back pain. Getting old is for the birds!

    Happy Belated Birthday!

  29. so happy you are feeling better. the older we get, the longer it takes us to bounce back. i detest being sick, especially when the weather is so nice.

    happy birthday girlfriend, that is one cute picture of you and i am so glad you shared it!

  30. Happy Birthday! What a cutie :)

    Hope you felt up to a full birthday meal. It took me a week to get over the flu... not fun!

    Maybe you can stay out of kitchen duty.
