I Have a Frog in my Throat!

I'm back! Sort of anyway. I have slept for three days, almost non-stop. This morning I decided enough was enough. I got up, had a shower, got dressed in some clean clothes and now I feel much better. Except for this 'frog' in my throat. I haven't had laryngitis for years, but now I sound awful! I wonder if it has anything to do with the Friday Block Party block for this week, called 'Leap Frog'. Probably not!

I still don't feel much like doing anything, but I decided to at least tackle the block for this week. I think it turned out okay. There was a lot of extra cutting and sizing up before I could sew it together. I also did a lot of 'frogging'. Probably my own fault, but I'm blaming that on the block too. When I put it on the floor to take a photo, Mimi and Oscar came running!

"Do you like my block?" I asked Mimi.

"It's kind of green!" She said. "Can I play?"

"Play what?" I asked.

"Leap Frog of course! Come Oscar! Come and play with me."

And they did!

A frog in your throat? HJi Hi... I always say that I sound like a seal! I’ve had laryngitus many times. It’s awful isn’t it?

Isn't it amazing how a shower and fresh clothes can make you feel like you ought to get up and do something, anything?

Glad you are starting to feel human again. And I like the block. I like to play leap frog when I was a child. Now what I want to know... is there a block called ice statue? :-)
