~ flowers of the week: 11.29.10 ~

Hello my dears!  I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Mine was spent sleeping all day in bed.  So sorry for my disappearance last week.  It honestly had to be my worst week this year!  I wasn't feeling 100% on Monday, and then Tuesday I was totally steamrolled with the flu.  And I'm not talking just any old flu, no sir - the kind that you're in bed for days on end, nothing to eat, barely can move, no shower...NOTHING!  You don't have the energy to do more than grunt if someone talks to you.  And you seriously think your world is coming to an end.  I've had this flu two other times that I can remeber - once over Valentine's Day 12 years ago, and then just after Christmas last year.  Hmmm...always comes around the holidays ~ note to self. 

Yet, what I was most bummed about was not being able to make it up to Sonoma to hang out with Namoi and Dr. G!  And not talking to a lot of my family and friends ;-(.  Okay, enough of my sickness.  I did feel horrible though, as I did not even wish you Happy Thanksgiving - my sincerest apologies.

I'm not 100% yet,  but did get up, shower and eat on Sunday.  One more day of taking it easy and then I should be back to almost normal.  In the meantime, I am in the mood for some soft pretty flowers for this week.  Oh yes, these would be just fine, thank you...
Flowers of the Week
This has to be in my top ten list of favorite arrangements!  I love all the soft colors with the candle and silver.  Plus, I love the pop of dark from the chocolate cosmo's and the unstructuredness of it!  Yep, these are definitely cheering me up.

P.S. - I have a handful of thank you's, tons of blogs to catch up on and comments to make, tweets to reply to, e-mails to get through, two photoshoots and two guest posts to do...all this week.  Also it's Mr. Big's birthday tomorrow, and I'm leaving for Florida next week for 12 days!  Eeeeek - I will try my hardest to get through them all!  

P.S.S. - THANK YOU to everyone for your sweet comments, Thanksgiving wishes and get well wishes  - I was so deeply touched, and they are SINCERELY appreciated!!! Mwah, Mwah!

~ Ciao
