Monday Musings-February 22, 2010

Dear Mr. Sister,

Just because I wanted to grill my pizza crust and use my own toppings doesn't mean I want to take over your weekly Saturday pizza tradition with the kids. Sometimes a gal just feels like shrimp, spinach, and feta with a garlic and herb white sauce. And yes, it was very good.

Now that's amore!

Sono tua per sempre,

5th

Another Accolade!


Isn't this just the cutest? I'm a Full Time Mummy gave me this award for simply commenting on her blog. She's got the cutest little baby boy with the biggest brightest eyes. I've had fun reliving my children's baby stages through her blog. Please check her out if you can. Oh, and you might learn a thing or two about her culture. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I Must be Beautiful

Because this is the 3rd time I've received this award! 


Thank you, Jackie, from The Way of the Upright is the Highway. Jackie is a new friend of mine. She's quite orthodox in her faith and world view and has been an interesting, intriguing addition to my daily reading. Please go visit her and say hi! Thank you Jackie. This was very sweet of you and I really appreciate it. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dad was discharged from the hospital last week. He is on medications to control his arrhythmia and anticoagulants to help dissolve any clots that may form because of the arrhythmia. He had a stroke in which he lost his ability to speak. Whether or not his speech returns remains to be seen. We appreciate all the prayers being said on his behalf. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Me? I'm still trying to recuperate from last week's episode. The more this goes on the more I'm thinking it is not medication related. I cannot afford another doctor's trip (new insurance/HIGH initial deductible). So I may be just sporadic in my postings over the next week or two while I nurse myself back to full health. Please be sure to come back Wednesday for my weekly Haiku and Thursday, especially, for my Letter F contribution. I really had a great time penning these. I think you'll enjoy them, or at least I hope you do. Until then...TTFN (ta ta for now!)

That pizza looks outrageous! Wish I was your neighbor.

And I hope you are feeling better. That sounded like a nasty illness you had.

Big hug for you today! Love the pizza pic, too!

Pelican Joe said...

Your Pizza? It was my Pizza crust! You stole from your hard working family and spat into our faces... saying you are "too good for our Saturday night tradition!". So what if we went to the movies without you?!! Left you and the dog napping! Then again, I could be reading a little too much into this major deviation from the norm!

Nah!

Mumsy said...

The pizza looks just amazingly delicious..and who could turn down shrimp and spinach?

Congrats on your award! You're a beautiful blogger, and your comments rock my world..

I hope you are feeling better soon, and prayer will be continue on your dad's behalf, 5th Sister!

Julie Schuler said...

I am glad to hear that your father is out of the hospital. There is nothing as precious as your health, so please take care.

That pizza looks scrumptious. I love shrimp.

Brian Miller said...

mmmm....that pizza sounds good. thanks for the update on your dad, still praying....

Michelle Hoad said...

We make homemade pizza with the kids every week, but it never looks quite that yummy. I need to have a chit chat with the hubby.

Willoughby said...

When will you be posting the recipe for the herb white sauce? That sounds seriously delicious. I'd love to have the recipe.

Congrats on your awards!

I'm still keeping you family in my prayers. I hope your dad is feeling better and will be able to regain his speech. I can't imagine how frustrated he must feel.

What do you think caused the "episode" last week if it wasn't the meds? Are you still feeling sick? Take care of yourself and feel better soon!

Sometimes you just have to make a pizza for you! It looks so good. I am praying for your dad, and hoping you feel 100% again soon.

Jackie said...

I was telling my boyfriend that we should make our own pizza(when I'm done fasting) and look at you! ... you made your own pizza and everything! that's great , I bet it was good too .

I'm glad your dad is doing better and I hope you don't come down with the nasty enemis(?) again either . Thanks for the recognition . luv you.

otin said...

I hope that the medicines work for your dad. I have had some slight heart rhythm problems, but nothing requiring medicine.

I could do without the spinach on my pizza!

Tracie said...

You have posts written and ready to publish. I'm impressed. And a huge procrastinator.

Hi, Polly--still getting caught up on back posts, so I'm just now learning about the episode and your father. I will keep you both in my prayers!

Congrats on the awards--well deserved--things seem to be hopping over here!

Corrie Howe said...

You are beautiful. I hope that you feel better. I'm falling behind in blogs again, but my bank account is getting a little bigger. ;-)

Weezer said...

I'd love to have a piece or two of that pizza right now. Okay. So what symptoms are we dealing with? You need to get to feeling better. Spring's coming.
I'm so glad to hear about your day.

Holly said...

So glad to hear your dad was discharged...we'll keep him (and you) inour prayers.

Kimberly said...

The pizza looks so good!

Glad to hear your father was released form the hospital.

You are still feeling bad? I hope you start to feel better after some rest. You probably need more rest.

I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

I am glad to hear that your dad is doing better, I hope that you are on the mend soon, too.

As for the pizza, that sounds soooo good right now. We try to do homemade pizza once a week, but I've been too chicken to try the grilling. Is it fairly easy?

Kathleen said...

That pizza? It looks DELICIOUS!!

HeatherLynn said...

ok, that pizza looks crazy good! Sure looks better than that crap I just ingested! *barf*

And congrats on the awards, you no doubt deserve them! :)
