It’s a gorgeous weekend here, much like the one in the photo above, which was taken exactly a month ago. I haven’t had a chance to enjoy today’s beautiful weather because I’ve been taking care of E, who was officially diagnosed with the flu this morning. It’s the first time she’s ever had anything serious, so she has as little practice being sick as I do being a nurse (real meaning: we’re driving each other crazy). She’s going to be home from school with me for the next few days, so we’ll both have time to improve our coping skills (real meaning: one of us will probably kill the other!)
Anyway, the reason I’m on the computer and not tending to my sick child is to remind you that the deadline for entering Vegetable Love is tonight at midnight Eastern time. The entries have been pouring in, so if you want yours included, be sure to get it posted today.
Even if you’re not participating, you’ll want to check in tomorrow to see all the entries and cast your vote for your favorite. Plus, look for a special surprise for one lucky reader (but that’s all I’m saying about that!)
Here’s E in healthier times. This photo was taken exactly a week after the first photo, which shows the changing nature of our weather here in Mississippi. Actually, this is only the second time we’ve seen snow since we moved here 7 years ago, which explains why my daughter ran straight from her bed out into the driveway without brushing her hair or changing out of her pajamas.
