Happy New Year!

Wishing you much happiness & more importantly,
GOOD HEALTH in the coming year!

(if you don't have good health, then you don't have much happiness, either)

Dr. Gazebo House has been very sick & in bed with a horrible cold this past week.
He's high maintenance on a good day, but when he's sick....sheesh!
Lets just say my time is not my own.
Doctors make the WORST patients...he says *nurses* are even worse.
However, I am very grateful to still have him around for another holiday.
He makes me laugh, even when he's sick!

I'm working on posting a healthy, veggie salad recipe as well as
a not-so-healthy but very DELICIOUS soup &
a snowman table for the grandkids on Sunday.

I thank you for stopping by The Gazebo House &
I promise I will get back to posting &
returning your visits just as soon as the doc is well.

(praying that I don't catch it next!!!)


  1. Hello Rett...

    Ahhh...bless your heart! Sending prayers your way, dear lady...and prayers for your Mr. as well! Just wanted to stop by to say hello and Happy New Years!

    Hugs and prayers,
    Chari @Happy To Design

  2. Rett, I hope the Mr. is better real soon. Happy New Year and I hope this year is a super Blessed one. Hugs, Marty

  3. Hi, Rett! Prayers go out for Ern. DD and I have the "Christmas Cold, Northeast version" and it was not a perfect Christmas! Ern will be better soon and you can both start a New Year filled with promise and opportunity for all things. ((Hugs))...Bunny

  4. Rett,

    Love your bling-y button/picture at the beginning of your post. Love to know how to do that!

    I hope Dr. Gazebo feels better very soon and I wish you both a happy and healthy 2011.


  5. Hi Rett:
    Happy New Year, my friend.
    I hope your husband is feeling better soon, and that your new year is filled with only good things.
    Thanks so much for enriching this past year for me. I look forward to getting to know you better in 2011.
    Hugs from FL,

  6. Get well....both of you! Blessings in the New Year, dear friend!

  7. Happy New Year Rett, We had the whole family here for New Years Eve, and two have a throat infection. I am like you, hope I am not next, have no time. Take care and have a great time with the grandkids.

  8. Happy New Year Rett! I'll be bringing out some snowmen soon too-enjoy:@)

  9. Rett, thanks for your note. Haven't gotten a response off, but will. Hope DR is feeling better soon. Lunch with friends today, but a quiet day all around otherwise. Just stopping in to wish you all the best for 2011 ~ especially good health for you and the DR.
    Happy New Year! ~ Sarah

  11. Wishing Dr. Gazebo House a speedy recovery, and you some rest from nursing duties. Colds were an unwelcomed guest at many homes this season.
    May 2011 bring you and yours many blessings.

  12. Oh, Rett... I sympathize not only with you but with Dr. GH. I have been sick for weeks and can't shake it. This is a nasty virus. Now, Mr. Magpie is feeling worse for the wear. So I feel your pain!

    On the flip side, I wish you a very Happy New Year filled with love and blessings... and good health!

  13. So glad you had a minute to post Rett, I've been wondering what you were up to. Sorry to hear it wasn't a trip to some place warm but at least Dr. Gazebo had you there to help "nurse" him back to a healthy 2011. Take care and thanks so much for sharing your home and family in 2010 with us.

    PS...I went and looks at new "machines" yesterday at the sewing center. They were on sale but....

  14. Happy New Year Rett. I hope it is filled with blessings and joy!

    I hope DH is well soon and taking care of you. :)

  15. Happy New Year, Rett!

    I hope good health returns to the Gazebo House quickly. I look forward to seeing what's cookin'. La

  16. Hope you hubby is feeling better REAL soon! Happy New Blog Year!!

  17. Happy 2011 dear Rett! I am just coming back to life after a stomach virus for 4 days, oh brother! I just wanted to be left alone!!!
    Hope dh is better soon, so we can all be happy!
    Here's to us! Cheers!

  18. Hope he's well soon! My guy isn't feeling very well either! Happy 2011 to you!

  19. Happy New Year Rett!
    So sorry to hear there is a bug at your house, that's not how the new year should start!
    I am looking forward to your table for the grands. You always do things with such style!

  20. Hi Rett - I'm so very sorry to read that Dr. GH isn't well. That's so stressful, especially at holiday time. I hope he is up and about very soon.

    Goods wishes to you and your family for a very healthy and happy 2011.

  21. Happy New Year to you too. I love your cute and customized image at the top of your post.
    I hope Dr. Gazebo is feeling much better real soon. I'm sure he is being well taken care of.
    I look forward to reading about your healthy salad and yummy soup recipes.
    Stay well.

  22. Hoping your DH recovers quickly and that you do not catch it! Been battling a chest cold for three weeks - and I know if I just stayed put and took the time to recover I would be done with it! BUT...have you ever seen a woman let a little cold keep them down!!
    Only the BEST for you in the New Year..

  23. Hey there Rett, Sorry about your dear husband! Mine was sick over Christmas and DID manage to pass it on to me. I understand what you mean about the sort of patient men are! Good heavens!

    Looking forward to reading your new post in 2011!

  24. Dear Rett,
    I hope Dr. Gazebo is over his cold and feeling better. I hope the two of you have a wonderful and blessed New Year ♥
