Mosaic Monday: Under the Weather



It sounds like a TB ward in our house this week.  My son, my husband and I have all been coughing our lungs out with a nasty upper respiratory infection.  My daughter, who leaves on Monday for a semester in Italy, has been slathering herself in Purel and avoiding us like the plague.  Many cups of tea have been consumed.

So, how has your new year been going so far?  ;)

Here are the instructions to join today's post:
1. Publish your Mosaic Monday post. The post may be about any subject you wish. The only stipulation is that it include a collage, or mosaic of photos.
2. Once it is published, click on the title of the post. This will lead you to the static link for your post. The static link is the page with only that post on it. Copy the url from your browser at the top of the page.
3. Paste the url into the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
4. Type your name in the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
5. Click on "Enter."
6. Please link back to this Mosaic Monday post so that your readers can find other wonderful mosaics.


That's all there is to it! It's always a good idea to then check and see if your link is working. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: mrcarroll(at)optonline.net

And a quick reminder: if you would like to join Mosaic Monday but don't know quite where to start, there is a tutorial on mosaic-making on my sidebar. Just scroll down, and click on the small blue mosaic.

  1. SO sorry to hear you're under the weather, Mary. No consolation, I know, but you are certainly not alone. This after-Christmas season is hitting more people than in past years.
    Thank you for hosting Mosaic Monday. I can understand how much work goes into hosting. Heck, just writing a post takes me the better part of a day. There's the cleaning, staging, photographing, editing, writing and cleaning up. And then, if you want people to see it (even though my site is not monetized, I do somehow want to think I'm offering something of benefit to others) you need to join up to these wonderful link parties.
    So, doing all this while you're sick - a real sacrifice.
    Get well soon.

  2. Mary, I certainly hope you and the family don't have the flu...they're saying it's horrid this year! Keep drinking tea...put honey initial and make some chicken soup if you're up to it!...:)JP

  3. How scary for your daughter! Wishing her all the best in Italy. Sounds like so much fun for her. What an adventure.

    The rest of you get well quick. Tea...must go get some before I settle into an hour or so of Mosaic Monday visits. Love your homey photos today...

  4. I hope you soon feel better Mary, and your family too! There's such an awful lot going around right now - best to stay tucked up and warm, with lots of good, hot tea.

  8. Oh dear, I hope you all feel better very soon. Hot tea and rest is good advice, especially when the tea is sipped from such pretty cups. Best wishes to your daughter for her semester in Italy.

  24. i think that same bug is here in Washington state as well. We suffered with it most of December, it is a tough one to get rid of. A cold is the perfect excuse for being lazy, and I have done just that this winter holiday break!
    Get well soon!

    Italy, what a wonderful trip.

  27. Hello Mary...I'm sorry you are under the weather. It's that time of year. I have been paranoid about hand washing for the past few weeks. There are so many post Christmas bugs going around.
    So take care and get well, my friend.
    Thank you for hosting...and, especially since you're not feeling well.
    Blessings,

  29. Dear Mary, like you our new year has not had the best of starts as we had to say au revoir to our wonderful 12 year old cocker spaniel, Ben, last Thursday.
    I hope you all begin to feel better soon and that your daughter escapes to Italy germ free!

  33. Mary, I'm so sorry your family has been dealing with that respiratory crud. Ours has, too. I hope your daughter was able to outrun it -- and that she has as fantastic time in Italy! Thanks for hosting even when under the weather. Your photographs are beautiful as always!

  34. I am dreadfully sorry to hear about your family and yourself not feeling well. I had - of all things - the Whooping Cough that started last April and lasted until JULY - I hope and pray that isn't the case with you, or surely praying your poor daughter doesn't get sick. What a wonderful opportunity for her to study abroad - lucky gal!

    Your demitasse teacup pics are stunning, especially the one with the book - what a beautiful photo!

    Thank you for hosting!
