Flu Hits

Just wanted to put this in my journal as record keeping. Katy had to leave work early on Friday because of cough and not being able to talk very well without coughing. She thought she had a cold and went to Walgreens clinic and they gave her an antibiotic and her told her to get some rest. Monday she tried to go in to work and couldn't talk without coughing, so she went to her ObGYN and he told her to stay home and in bed for a week and to continue to take the antibiotic. Tuesday she called me and said she had a fever and wasn't feeling well, and no sleep the night before from coughing. I went over to make her lunch and convinced her to go to the ER. She was tested and has the H1N1 virus. We have had a shortage of Tamiflu here but because she is pregnant she was able to get a prescription for it. I have been caring for Maddie here to keep her away from Katy, but she ended up getting it also. Brian took Maddie to the Dr. yesterday afternoon and she is now taking Tamiflu also. I have started feeling... not so hot, so we will see what tomorrow brings. Say a prayer for us please.

Hats Off To Hat Wearers...........


Last night I couldn't find anything to watch on TV and not having planned ahead by going to see if there was anything good to rent, I went scouring for some of our old movies that we have around here. One of them I found was "Out Of Africa". It is not one of my favorites, but I was glad that it won the awards that it did, because I thought it was deserving of them. Especially the Award for "Best Costume Design". I love all of the outfits and hats that Meryl Streep wears in this movie. I love the wedding outfit with this hat!


And this hat.

And this one.


And especially these two!


My husband might remember our first days of dating, and me wearing hats. They were usually the inexpensive straw ones with the wide floppy brims, but I would be a "hat wearer"
if I were a wealthy woman and had occasions to wear them. I wonder if they will ever come back in style for all of the average people. I know some people still wear them, but in my circle of the world they don't.


I also love this movie because of this beautiful veranda.



Oh...found one more I like.
