Joined again!


The human race that is! Thanks for all the well wishes, this crud that's going around is brutal!! Achy, feverish, sore throat and the worst dizziness I've ever experienced! And I actually got a flu shot!! Oh well, at least it's in the past and the P-Man was the perfect, attentive nurse :)

I'm not that much of a joiner but I did have fun with the ABC-along of 2006. So I thought about joining the 2008 version but I wasn't sure I had another 26 interesting tidbits to share.

Then my feverish brain came up with what I think could be a cool idea...
I had such a great response to my Favorite Things post when I thought about what I wanted to say over the next year, I thought y'all might enjoy a year long "favorite things". So join I did!

To start things off, A is for Apple.....

Not just any apple here at Chez Blog de Fluffy, oh no! I give you the HONEY CRISP apple!


Developed as a hybrid between the Macoun and the Honeygold apples at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities this delectable treat has only been available since 1991.

It is a slightly tart, deliciously sweet, firm apple and frankly I think it's the perfect apple! It's so crispy and wonderful to eat even people who aren't apple lovers are converted forever.

Look for Honey Crisps in your local markets or ask your green grocer to get them in next fall, you won't be sorry!

Since I'm just back from a icky flu bug interlude blog hiatus, I'll start back slowly but next week I'll reveal the Mystery Socks, show off some amazing new socks, some new knails and in an unprecedented departure from the usual, some actual non-sock knitting - imagine that! I mean, even the Queen of Socks needs a little variety, right?

Now for all of you who are suffering from P-Man withdrawal, I give you the world's best nurse...


Poor little guy's exhausted from taking care of his Mom!

Have a great weekend, see ya next week!

ETA: Drats! I forgot to measure his bunny thumper when I had the chance :(

EATA:(edited again to add) 4.75 inches! What a he man :)

Welcome back to the land of the living. Hubby and I were down too and we also got flu shots. Maybe it would have been a lot worse without it. Looking forward to you knitting update.

Oh, yeah! You're alive and kicking, Debi! Nurse Bunny Thumper may be tired, but he's extra adorable. :o)

Norma said...

Welcome back! Look at that little nurse. He's adorable!

Opal said...

So glad to hear you're feeling better! That picture of the P-Man is so precious. I'd be hard put to resist giving him a cuddle!

Leslie said...

Perry P and I are happy to hear you're back in the land of the living! She's missed seeing "the young guy" (hey! she's 18 peep years). Cutest little photo of him ever we think :)

Terri said...

So glad you are back to the world of the living! I can't wait to see your "departure". Also glad that you have accepted your crown!

I had Honey Crisp apples for the first time this fall and I agree that they are wonderful. I'm not a huge lover of apples but these are really the most delicious apples I've ever eaten. I made a pie with some and that was great, too.
Glad you're back and feeling better!

Glad you're feeling better - but you had a flu shot? Waaaa

Suzanne said...

I am SOOO glad that you are feeling better! And happy that P-man is still on the job!

Jacki said...

Glad you're amongst the living again! Yay to Nurse P-Man and honeycrisp apples (mmm, sweet and crunchy!).

Jessica said...

I love apples but I usually go with Granny Smiths. I'll have to check these out if I can find them though.

Poor little P-dude! You must have been a tough patient. ;)

Agnes said...

Welcome back ... welcome back!
Can't wait to see your new stuff next time! Especially the mystery sock ... I've seen photos of it on your Flickr account but am eager to see the full shots.

twig said...

Glad you're better. I will say that the term "bunny thumper" had me just a tad worried before I clicked the link. heheheh

Madge said...

Sooo glad you're on the mend! Take it easy, and I hope you're back to your old self soon. *hugs*

P.S. Is it bad that I thought "bunny thumper" was a euphamism?

Debi said...

Hell yeah, if it's *only* 4.75 inches dude :)

La said...

I have been looking for those apples since the first time you ever mentioned them to me...to no avail.

And since you sent me your ick-foo, why don't you send me your nurse, cuz Sassy aint cutting it, and I'm feeling like ass!

LOVE the thumper! I'ed enter, but Sassy doesn't let me anywhere near her feet

Rebekah said...

My parents, being from Iowa, practically live off of Honey Crisps. They eat at least two a day, nearly every day.

We've only been able to get them ehre in St. Louis for the last couple of years.

They are quite delicious.

Barbara-Kay said...

So good to have both of you back!

And what choice morsel will your nursing Pumpkin receive for all his devotion? Hmmm?

Carrie K said...

Yucky cold, wasn't it? Glad the P-man nursed you back to health!

KnitNana said...

He's got egstra special bunny thumpers!
Glad he took good care of your and that you're back amongst the living!
((((hugs))))

Dee said...

Glad you are feeling better. Flu bug is a pain (literally).

P-Man looks like he is enjoying a well-deserved rest.

So glad you're feeling better. P-Man did an excellent job taking care of you!

Julie said...

I'm glad to hear you're feeling better! What an adorable little nurse you have (and 4.75 inches - WOW!)

Lorette said...

You really need to learn to relax more, P-man. You look so tense! ;-)

Glad you're feeling better!
