I've been sick since Tuesday. I actually donated platelets on Tuesday and then got sick Tuesday night and had to call the blood bank and tell them to throw away the donation -- I'd hate to be responsible for a cancer patient hoping to get a bit of a revival and ending up getting sicker. I finally caught a cold -- I refuse to believe this is the flu since I did get a flu shot this year as usual. AJ and Will are also sick with this crud -- AJ spiked a temp of 104.5 at the doctor's office Wednesday night. They are both on the mend, and I'm hoping I am also!

Anyway -- I was feeling so lousy on Wednesday that all I did was take naps and read my book. Thursday I managed to get the log cabin quilt top put together. Friday I put the borders on it -- so at least it's ready for Monday night's guild meeting. I really didn't feel like sewing yesterday, but I did anyway. I was thinking I'd make a little Easter bunny or spring wall hanging, but couldn't find the pattern I was thinking of. I ran across the pattern for this baby quilt though, along with the panel of sayings and the fabrics I had set aside for making it. So, I put it together instead. I love the little sayings, but not that fond of the fabrics and design! I'll finish it and give it to Steph though - probably after Easter.

I sat down and planned out my Easter dinner today and hopefully have the grocery list complete. We'll have ham, as usual, so just needed to figure out what I was having with it.

I think Steve will have my computer together by next Sunday, so he can set it up when they come for dinnner. He said he's working on it today, but they sent him the wrong heat sync, so he'll have to wait for the new one to arrive, probably on Monday. I can't wait! I'll be calling about a wireless connection as soon as I get it!

Sorry to hear you are under the weather! Hope it passes quickly. I am glad that Steve did so well with his chemo. I have been following his blog. He has a great sense of humor and a super positive attitude. Both needed to deal with this bump on the road of life. HOpe you all have a super Easter!
