[she really hates that I call her that....awwwwww, poor sissy. It's really a term on endearment. Ha -she knows me better. Truth be told, she should have never let on that she dislikes it so. Makes me wanna call her 'sissy' now!! LOL]

I'm still feeling quite worn down. Now, Bud has the same. He caught it from me. I tellya, it sounds like a TB ward in our house right now. But we will survive...just taking a lot of gumption from us tho, and I've no energy to peruse blogging buddies' posts. Have a great Thursday.

  1. Good morning, Anni.

    A beautiful tribute to your sister. I know how close you are and am glad I could drop by and help you celebrate Sister's Day.

    Sorry you and Bud are feeling under the weather. Both Dwight and I have that terrible cough. Not nice.

    On the positive side, the boys are on March Break and the weather has been beautiful.

    Have a wonderful day.

  2. Such a sweet post, love the new look.

  3. Soorry you're feeling bue and one degree under - hope you get back in the pink soon! x

  4. Anni, Love your Easter decor. Such cute ducklings. Very pretty and serene.

    To answer your question I haven't received any emails from you and have not had any replies to the ones I sent you either. Hope you can get it worked out. Miss talking to you.

  5. Hi Anni!
    Hope you're feeling better soon.
    I'm thunking Thunks may be done for a while.
    who know...

    Baseball season is just around the corner.

    Have a great Thursday!

  6. Such a sweet post and a lovely way to celebrate your sister.

  7. A lovely tribute to your sister. I am one of four girls and the second eldes was called Sissy, which she shortened to Sis as she matured. They called her that because she was named after my mother, I guess. She's my Sis....and I would give her my heart if she needed it. So sorry you're sick - maybe you're shaking off the winter and having your own Spring : ) Love the duckies.

  8. Nice tribute to your sister! Hope you feel better soon. Those colds are going around here too, and the nasty cough that goes with it.

  9. how I wish I have a sister like you. You are very thoughtful sister.
