Nana Diana Takes A Break

Nana Diana Takes A Break

I'M TAKING THE GEOGRAPHICAL CURE-HEADED SOUTH

Good morning friends.
I know I have been gone a long time.
The pneumonia I had really knocked
me down.
Even though my lung x-rays are clear
I continue to cough and feel exhausted.

I want to thank each and every one of you
that follow this blog and that 
contacted me with well wishes,
healing thoughts and prayers.
I am truly blessed to know
and to have
such wonderful, caring blogging friends.

I have decided I will NEVER be a good
COUCH POTATO.
That means that MyHero may have
to find a different partner someday!

Anyway~
This cold weather means that I have
spent a lot of time inside the house
this winter.
I am not a good INSIDE person.
I need to get out at least for coffee 
every day.
My dear friend 
(thank you-you know who you are)
 sent me a 
bottomless cup of Starbucks for the
month of January.
I have used it but had to send someone
to fill it for me every day.
NOT my idea of FUN!

I, along with my daughter and her girls,
am taking off for parts unknown.
Let me just say it is somewhere warm.
I will share pictures when I get back.

My plan is to blog again on a limited basis
in mid-February.
So, bear with me.
I am not giving up-
just giving in to something that has
been beyond my control.

Here are my traveling companions.
Sappy, Happy & Yappy.
They could form their own TV show.

I am leaving this other 
sweet little granddaughter
behind with her Mama.

Is she too cute for words, or what?
Don't you love the one little piece of 
hair sticking straight up?
When her hair is wet it is a mass
of curls like her Mama had.
That's all she wrote, folks.
I am going-going-GONE!
Physically, not mentally, the old brain is still functioning...
kind of.......
See you all soon.

    So glad to see you back here, and know that you are feeling a little better. What a rough winter you have had so far! I'm so happy you are headed to warmer climates with your sidekicks in tow!! And your little granddaughter is just precious! Look at those eyes, and yes, the little spike of hair is too cute. Hope the sun and warm temps do you a world of good! Sure have missed you!

  15. Oh wonderful! You are getting out of The North Country just in the knick of time from the looks of the weather pattern. I know that you'll have a blast with your daughter and grandgirlies. See you when I do and not a moment before. Take your time and enjoy the warmth.

    ReplyDelete
  16. oh my Dear, this has been an awful struggle. and it has to have taken the "starch" out of you, big time.

    What perfectly precious grand daughters you have. and wonderful that you are going to fly-away-to-warmth, for a spell.

    so hope it will do the trick!

    mmmmm, perhaps you could stop off, for me, on your way? ,-)))) I can't shake this cough either, and warmth is sounding sooooo gooood to me. :-))))))))))))

    rest... soak up the warmth... rest... soak up the warmth... rest... soak up the warmth.... repeat...

    gentle hugs,
    Tessa~
    (cough, cough, cough...)

  27. Diana,
    Feeling the warmth of the sun kiss your face sounds so wonderful. Your Grands are all so adorable and the three older ones will be fun travel companions. Week 4 for me and I'm still coughing, weak and getting dizzy spells from coughing. God bless your endurance and mental attitude you've had with being so ill. Enjoy the sun and your family.
    xoxo,
    Vera

  29. Oh Diana, going somewhere warm sounds like a good idea for you right now. I bet it's so cold where you live, and staying inside all day wouldn't be any fun. Have a fun trip with the girls. That is the sweetest picture of Bright Eyes, and someday she'll be able to join you when you travel.

    Feel better, relax, have fun, and be safe, dear Diana. I will see you in February.

    love, ~Sheri

    ReplyDelete
  31. Have fun where ever you go! I would love to take off to who knows where with my 3 grand daughters, so I know this is going to be a good time of making wonderful memories. And I've been MIA for the last month or two, also. I've just had too much on my plate and have taken on an extra thing or two, so blogging had to go for a bit. I am back - sparatically - but that's at least something.

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is Great news Diana!!! I am so HAPPY to hear that you are feeling better and are able to enjoy being out and about once again! I wish you and your three dear companies a safe and inspiring journey. I will be thrilled with anytime you wish and are free to write. Embrace every moment friend!!! Hugs<3

  36. Hi Diana, I've been thinking about you a lot and praying for you to get better soon. I'm sorry that cough has been hanging on so long. That seems to be the way it is for some folks this year. Enjoy your time away. All of us here in blogland will miss you while you're gone. Have fun with the girls. Take care, Janet W

  37. Well I hope it is somewhere near a beach where you can breathe the sea air. You have to do what you can do. I am surprised and delighted the girls can come with school, but you will get better faster! lol Take care and take as much time off as you need.

  45. Dear Diana, have a wonderful time away in the warmer weather. Your traveling group will keep you great company and I am sure you will have tons of fun. My how they have grown and so beautiful. The littlest cutie is such a darling. That little piece of hair is too sweet. Those eyes just melt your heart. Getting away will do you a world of good and give you the rest you need. Continued prayers for you to regain your strength.
    Sending love and hugs your way. Have fun!!

  46. Dearest Diana, WE've all missed you girl! If there is any consolation with your having a hard time recovering-hubby and I are still coughing(a dry cough)from the chest cold we had three weeks ago. Going some place warm sounds enchanting! I am going to have surgery on 2/9 and will have hubby waiting on me hand and foot for two weeks at least. Not looking forward to it, but God is good and He is in control so I'm not going to worry about it.
    I'll miss you, so don't stay away too long.

  50. Ah, Diana, I hope you and the girls have a wonderful time. I'm sure it is exactly the medicine you need this winter. God bless you with good weather and a sweet time together, friend. You've had a rough winter. This is a good way to remind it of who's boss! Lol The little one is as cute as they come. Hope YourHero survives your vacation. ;-)

  52. Diana, thank you for coming to see my baby, Katie Isabella. :-) WE loved that you came over this evening and saw her TV shows.

  56. I am glad that you are going somewhere warm, but I keep asking just where is that at. Your girls are growing and becoming quite young ladies. Your littlest is so adorable. I keep praying for you that you keep improving. I have had every kind of pneumonia there is during my lifetime so I know how you feel. It really knocks you for a loop. Enjoy your trip and be safe. I know I will enjoy the pictures when you get back. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend Shirley
