Corner View: Spring

Author: angiem, 03 30th, 2010

We’re all a bit sick over here with coughing and sneezing and the high temperatures that accompany that.   Nothing new, we get so every Spring. As it is cold and rainy we spend our days wrapped in blankets, deep in our favorite chairs, books in hand, board games scattered across the floor.  When we venture out, we quickly hurry back to the hot soup simmering on the stove and chunks of bread and butter.

It’s hubby’s birthday on Friday.  Our goal is to have this nuisance out of the way by then, so the attention could be totally his.

Happy Spring to you all, and a healthy one!

    Isn’t it rotten when the whole family feel poorly at the same time - you always need to stagger it. I really hope you all manage to shift it off soon

  24. Allegra Smith Says:

    Ah, this misery is the kind that loves company me thinks. Get some rose hips and slippery elm for the throat because after a while it feels as if you have gargled with bits of barbed wire.

    I am sending you my best healing thoughts for your entire, beautiful family. This too shall pass.

  32. Valerie Says:

    I spent a while reading your blog the other day, marvelling at how you write, tell stories, tell things that touch so many of us… and today as I’m visiting you again for corner view, i’m so sorry to hear you’re sick with a spring that, just like here in western france, is late. my daughter is sick & we still have logfires in the evening. not to mention the rain…
    i hope you’ll recover real soon, and on time to celebrate your husband’s special day on friday…
    get-well wishes !

  33. Susan Says:

    Oh I wish I had a working camera. Not that I could make such a purty pix, Miss Angie. The portrait is lovely…I’m so sorry you’re all under-the-weather. Here, too. Achooo.

    Happy spring to you and your lovely family! Hope you feel all healthy in time for your husband’s birthday celebration.

    Angie you are stunning!

  38. Nancy C Says:

    I will happily sit at your table and eat your soup…perhaps wearing a surgical mask.

    Good soup is worth the risk.

    Oh, feel better! And, a happy, happy birthday to your sweet hubby.

  54. Maggie May Says:

    What a beautiful photo Angie!!

    Feel better :)

  55. krista Says:

    first of all, every time i see a picture of your family i practically gasp out loud. stunning, so so stunningly beautiful.

    also, since i’ve been working, bryan has been in charge of the millions of photos of finn that we take. but he hasn’t done as well as i would have hoped. hence, no pics yet of finn’s new wardrobe and how INCREDIBLY ADORABLE she looks in it. seriously, you are such a treasure and thank you so much. :-)

  56. GingerB Says:

    Goodness you people are loely. Are you sure you can be friends with the likes of me?

  57. Autumn Says:

    Yeah, I have a bit of a cold too. It is the changing of the weather. I hope that you guys get to feeling better so that you can celebrate the Hubby’s b-day. Beautiful pic! xoxo

  58. GingerB Says:

    And you can probably spell lovely, too. Sigh. Like the conversation over at Mwa’s, you’ll probably never like me now.

  59. lollipop Says:
