Still fighting…

…the flu, that is! Egads, this thing is long-lived. Yesterday, my dear husband fought a fever all day. Today Clementine is down. The little ones continue to cough, but have been fever free for the past 3 days. I was finally able to attend Mass for the first time in nearly two weeks.

Total number of family members who attended Mass last Sunday: 3

Ash Wednesday: 0

This Sunday: 3

The lingering coughs still shake the rafters…thus far Arthur, Galahad and Mom remain uninfected. Keep praying, dear friends!! This stuff is bound to pass soon enough.

On a slightly more hopeful note, look what I spied peeking up through the dirt:

The recent rain and springlike weather seems to have awakened these “sleepers.” The problem? Yesterday it was 50 degrees. Today it is 15 and it feels like -3.

Poor little daffodils…hope they can survive this…
