What do you do on a day off????

This weekend was my birthday...yeah... oh thanks... it was good considering I'm gettin' 
so old I forgot to put the pizza in the oven and wondered what the heck was taking
it so long to cook!!! 

The dreaded stomach bug that's been going around (always seems to be going around!!)
hit our house and Syd had a very bad night throwing up every 1/2 hour in the 
wee small hours of Saturday morning... my birthday morning!!!! 

So, having had a pretty good day yesterday, she recovered as quickly as she became
sick and all was well, I seem to have fallen prey to said crapola bug and I'm home today.
I hate that I have to get sick to have a day off, and by day off I mean no one here
to bother me, a day by myself in my home...no interruptions. 
It sucks that half the day is wasted in the bathroom and lying around in bed 
watching Ellen. She's pretty good tho'... I liked her show!!! 

Now I'm watching Mr & Mrs Smith... never seen it but always been intrigued as
it's the movie that created Brangelina... now there's a match made in hell as far
as I can see but what do I know???
So... looks like there's a lot of TV watching today, I did manage to take a shower
as my sick clothes smelled yukky!! and then there's blogging. Yep, just a little time
to myself to hop around, find some new blogs to follow, connect with some 
oldies and find some new inspiration.. Cool!!! 

Oh and then I almost forgot the best thing of all.... 
His Gorgeousness bought me a BAMBOO for my birthday! I have been 
wittering on about getting one forever. Now this is one of those things you can
just buy for yourself but this year we are on a strict budget and we're waiting
for special occasions to buy each other presents. It's bringing the special
back into gift giving!! Think about it... how many times have you heard 
people say "we don't exchange Christmas gifts because we just buy what
we want all year round". Where's the magic in that? Where's the anticipation, 
the fun the love and the happy feeling when the recipient has waited for that 
thing their heart desires????

So peeps... this is how I'm spending my day when I'm not looking down the loo.
Happy Valentines Day to you one and all... 

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Happy belated birthday Mama McGuillicutty! Sorry it was sucky with sickness - I had that bug - the only thing good about it was that it was swift.

I'm glad you explained what the Bamboo was - I thought you had gone insane and wanted the actual plant - we have it wild in our back yard and it is the worst weed ever - NOTHING kills it and it takes over. We may have to get a Panda.
