I have got the Snishew's....

OH...dear...I have a cold....
I have a sniffley nose, so I need lots of tissues, plus of course my dear Granny made my favorite supper, and gave it to me in bed.
To cheer me up she even picked her first rose for the season. Granny says it smells wonderful, but I can't smell a thing.

I have something very special to tell you.
Can you remember when my dear friend Svetlana Mikhailova sent me a wonderful parcel with the most beautiful Lavender bear and two gorgeous children's books. 
 I didn't know the story of one of them, so Granny got it translated, and the lady made a book with both languages in.
Because I am sick and these books are special, Granny said I could read them

I can read the story in one book and look at the pictures in the other.
I don't know if you can see this to read. I think it is so special that I can see my friend from Russia's writing and read it in words I know. 
I will treasure both of these books for ever and ever...
I have honey milk and peanut and honey toast...
Granny said she put extra honey on it.

I will see you all when my sniffles are better, next week.

A big Welcome to my new followers.
This Clivia is growing in my garden, and it is just for you.
Welcome to Night Owl
This lady has a wonderful collection of Barbie dolls.

Judith makes lovely Christmas cards, Lovely Lacey needle keeps, dolls and anything crafty.

Irina makes lovely little bears.
Her blog is called The three Bears.

Svetlana makes wonderful soap.

My thought for the day.

"Blessed are those who can give
with out remembering,
and take without forgetting."

  17. Hi was nice to hear from Granny today..I've missed her and you. We are trying to catch up...Mom says I get in the way, but I know she doesn't mean a word of it. She used my blog for a test blog but promises me that she will start me another one..or fix mine. I don't mind. I am always right with her when she blogs anyway..I am part of the family you know! A BIG part of the family. I RULE that living room and those dolls with an iron :)

  18. Hi Kay and Wilbur,

    Sorry to hear that you have the sniffles - they have been doing the rounds over here too.
    The books from Russia look interesting.
    Hope you are enjoying the weekend
