Just a Quick Little Post

Hi to all my sweet friends. I hope you've had a good week.

Thank you so much for your prayers and well wishes. I am feeling much better. I didn't make it to church Sunday...I really missed not being there. I stayed home from work on Monday too, and got plenty of rest. Lee and Katie pitched in and cooked and cleaned. I'm very blessed to have such a wonderful family.♥

Last week, my sweet friend, Teri, had recommended the book, Enough, by Adam Hamilton. I ordered a gently used one from Amazon, and it came in the mail Monday. I've been enjoying it, and have already read most of it. I definitely recommend it.

Sandi received her hearts from my giveaway, and I was happy to hear they'd made the trip safely from Virginia to Wisconsin. I'm glad she likes them. :)

I haven't shown you a picture of Oreo for a while. He is such a sweetie. Here he is taking a nap with me when I was sick. He's lying on my arm looking all cute and giving me purr therapy.

My husband told me a funny little joke the other day and I thought you'd like it too.

There once was a baby turtle who decided it was time to make his own way in the world. He very slowly climbed all the way to the top of a tall tree and jumped! He held out his legs and flapped with all his might, but fell to the ground with a splat! Dazed and confused, he got back up and slowly made his way up the tree again. Just like the first time, he jumped and flapped his legs as fast as he could, but he still fell straight to the ground! All this time, there were two birds in a nearby tree watching what the turtle was doing. As the turtle started to climb the tree for the third time, the birds looked at each other and said, "I think it's time to tell him he was adopted".

Wasn't that cute!

Have a great weekend!
Thanks so much for stopping by. :)

Take care,

  10. Hi, Melanie:
    That's a sweet joke. Our kitties always know when we're really
    sick, one will lay right on top of you like Oreo and the other one
    will "hover".

  11. That was a cute little joke. Do hope your all well now....the kitty was looking after you... cute picture.

  12. Hi Melanie,

    Glad to hear you are feeling better.

    I just told my hubby your turtle story too cute.. he laughed.

    Purr therapy...that's the ticket. It worked, didn't it? :)

    I love it. I remember years ago at my grandmas my sister came home with a little black kitty. It laid on my chest and just purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrred .... :)

    Take care, Janet W
