Countdown to Christmas

That nasty flu and cold
just about got the best of me...
But geez it's Christmas


A girl can't be down and out
for Christmas...

We still needed to get a tree
and decorate it
Got It Decorated it Done!


The House needed to be Decorated
Done!


And Home made Peanut Brittle


To be made...


Packaged and shipped
Done!


And even though I still have a bit of a
lingering cough...
I'm ready for Christmas!

Tis The Season~

Hmmm. Looks terrific. Flu has done me in here. I give up. I think no more fluffing will occur. I'm only hoping to be cognizant for the big day. Flu? Feels more like the PLAGUE!!! Enjoy the season.

Oh Diane, hope you feel better. Last Christmas, my head was stuck in the toilet all Christmas Eve night and I slept all Christmas Day. This year I've been praying not to get sick!

Sounds like you're getting over it though and we still have a few days. Be well and try and behave yourself will ya?!
