Hot tea and a warm blanket

That’s pretty much been my life these last few days. I have tried to go into my stamp room but with all this cough and cold medicine, I’m just too loopy to create anything. You know I’m sick when even stamping doesn’t sound like fun.

Then, last night Oklahoma City was hit by an ice/snow storm. School is out today (oh, goody) and we aren’t expecting the temps to get above freezing until Wednesday. If there’s ever a time to be sick, I picked a good time, I guess.

So, it’s back to the couch with my hot tea (thank you, Christina) and my blanket….and lousy daytime television.

NyQuil to the rescue so I can sleep it off!

Thanks for all your Get Well wishes!!! I appreciate it so much. I hope to be back to videos next week! I miss you guys!

Stay healthy and I’ll see ya soon!

    Hope you feel better soon! Wish you could send some cold weather down here ( central Florida) it’s supposed to reach 85 degrees this afternoon. Anyway, I look forward to seeing some new videos when you’re back to your usual perky and talented self,

  4. Connie…I’m so sorry you are still under the weather! It’s really hard for a spunky person like you to stay down. You are in my thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery. Look at the bright side…you should be ship shape for Christmas!

The best thing for you is just what you are doing.take care. I have just returned from sunny Calif where it was just sweater weather to Idaho 18 and will be in the 20″s all next week in the day and in the teens at nite. Thank the good Lord I am well just moving slower. My new answer to those who ask “How you doing?”

    Hope you feel better soon. I’m using my snowed in day to put my punch outs and dies into the baseball card holders. What a great idea. Thank you for that!!

    Hope you feel better soon. My husband has had it for 2 weeks!

    I have made 4 of the To-Go Cups with the hot chocolate. Just too cute.

    I am right there with you! actually my 3 daughters and my husband and I, we all got it on Black Friday (and we didn’t go shopping!!!). Stay warm, enjoy that tea and if you can find them, there are honey straws, filled with honey, you cut the tip off and put in warm cup of tea and it infuses into the tea while you are sipping. Helps with that sore throat. Take care, and we will stll be here waiting for your Awesome Ideas to share.

  16. Patricia Morgan says:

    The only thing worse than a cold and feeling lousy is daytime tv. That, in itself, should spur you to wellness. I miss your tutorials so get well soon. I swear by airborne.

  17. Sorry this is so late, I’ve been traveling for family issued. So sorry to hear you’ve been sick. Praying for a quick & full recovery. Hot tea & blankets siunds great. Idaho has been in the negative temps brrrr really not looking firwatd to that as we’ve been in sinny southern cali. Take care & God bless.

  21. JoAnn says:

    Awe , sorry you are not feeling well. Those ice storms can be bad also. I hope your power does not go out. Get better soon.

  22. Patti Morrow says:

    Connie, I am very sorry to hear you are under the weather. When you don’t feel like stampin’, you’re really sick. Even here in San Antonio, it’s surprising how cold it is. Right now it’s 34 degrees where we are. Hope you stay warm, drink lots of warm tea, and get lots of sleep. Get well soon!


  23. Elizabeth says:

    Hope you’re feeling better soon.

    Get well soon. We will be missing your daily videos and good cards and crafts. I especially liked the tips on the hot chocolate. That was so cute.
    Hurry up and feel better. Survive the snow! We are in Chicago.

  26. Febe says:

    Stay in bed, rest, drink fluids, skip the blog, just rest. You need to be well in time for Santa’s arrival… so drop out of life for a bit . We’ll all be here when you feel better….Stay warm, get well.

    My prayers are with you, miss your cheery voice and amazing talent!
    Here in Eugene, OR, we are also experiencing uncharacteristic weather, days on end with below freezing temperatures, and heading into 24 uninterrupted hours of snowing.

  28. Mary Delgadillo says:

  32. Janene Smith says:

    Sorry to hear you are so sick! The hot tea and the couch sound like the best plan for right now. You might want to try some Delsym. My pharmacist recommended it (OTC) and it worked VERY well for me. Get well soon!

  33. Theresa says:

    I hope you are feeling better soon. Miss the creativity, but know you will be back in the stamping mode soon. Keep warm.

  34. Rita in Michigan says:

    Heard about your weather – it was on our tv news here in Kalamazoo – we are ffffreezing here but it IS Michigan and it IS winter – but for you guys to have it – mind boggling! Hunker down and have the generator all gassed up “just in case”.

  35. Maria A. Rodriguez. says:

    Dear Connie: I was busy yesterday and I didn’t see this post. I’m so sorry you are hurting and feeling so sick, so I join everyone to wish you a speedy recovery. Just rest and keep hydrated, hot tea and a warm blanket is a great combination to ease your discomforts and don’t worry, we will all be here to welcome you back, know you are missed and loved.

  36. Pam W says:

    Connie, I’m sorry to hear you are under the weather…Hope the hot tea and Nyquil will help you recover quickly. Got to tell you…I really enjoyed your video in the kitchen making 9 pie shells/covers. You looked like a ‘mad scientist’ for a bit there while you were working up all that dough. Love all your videos ,tips, and how to do something easier. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  37. Ann B. says:

    I want to add my best wishes to the wonderfully long list. I was “fortunate” enough to have had the same yucky, miserable crude. No cure except exactly what you are doing 🙂 Take your time getting up and around, it, AKA the crude, can sneak back thru the back door and well here ya go again. By the way, I love your blog site and I have enjoyed making cards along with you. Thanks Connie.

  38. judi h. says:

    Connie, hope each day finds you feeling better. Being from MN snow or below zero temps do not keep us in …but, ICE – no contest – stay home! Now in FL the warm temps keep hanging on and we would welcome some cooler breezes.
    The computer can be a fun thing – each morning I check the blogs of a friend in Paris, one on Martha’s Vinyard, SU demo blogs in Germany and the UK, and may skype family in MN/WI and check the weather worldwide….it is sooo amazing. I tell my friends, when I turn on my computer in the morning, I open the world:) Have a happy day.

  39. Vikkii says:

    It’s all about you getting better first, that’s the most important thing to do. Eat lightly and drink plenty of hot tea and water. Most of all rest, it happens to all of us and we want you back feeling your best..Take care and will see your great ideas next week. There is no snow here in Pennsylvania yet, but I’m sure we’ll get it before too long…..

    connie, you are such a joy! just to know that you will leave your couch while sick to send a message to all of us! sure hope that virus is short-lived.
    we, in the mountains of north carolina, have enjoyed the mild weather, but we are in for it tonight and tomorrow.
    God bless you and your family.

  41. Sandy says:

    Get well soon looking forward to more of your amazing videos, I look so forward to them. God Bless

  42. Mary Frances says:

    Hope you feel better soon! I’ve had the same crud all week and I’m in sunny Tampa, Florida! It’s just no fun to be so ill!

  43. Phoebe says:

    Hope you get well soon. On the bright side, at least you were in great health for your daughters’ play and recital.
