Thanks Shell, I do too ~ It is like a little bit of every thing had hit me ...
it came on fast ans hard

started with nasal, then cough, then fever and headache, now sore throat and one of my ears is bothering me ... I sure hope it has made its rounds, and is ready to just move on !

Enjoy your time with Jared home, I hope your mom can get over her sickness too and you all have some great times to make new memories

I am off to bed with hopes of feeling much better when I wake up! I need to get tradition gifts wrapped , maybe delivered, and I need to get to Peoria ... Then home for lots more wrapping ...I tried today but my head was pounding too bad

I did get a few more cards today. from Lois, Karen. Debby B and Sue Sturdevant... along with some images I had asked for and some sweet snowmen too and she mounted 2 stamps I bought at Archivers over a year ago and a surprise !
She sent me the bird punch How sweet was that ??
Poor Soni, I am so sorry this has knocked you down so badly. What a nice surprise from Sue, just when you needed a smile too.

Thanks Dody, I was doing so well , When I get the flu shot , I do not get sick as a rule... But this is all stemmed from and built around my sinuses, and now in my throat and lungs It feels like bronchitis... but my doctor will not be in til at least Wednesday I think ... I will call in the morning to be sure


My immunes must be pretty good if you look back back at how the boys were here when they were sick and Krista with bronchitis and pneumonia Plus just out shopping ...

The cough is productive today so all of the junk is moving and hopefully running its course ...

The beach sounds like Heaven right now
It is 21 with the high to be 31 ... and Sunny I am hoping to go get tradition gifts all wrapped up and in bags , I am going to town ( hopefully ) So I will call Tammy to see if she can meet me or I can just take it to her ... They need theses gifts by tomorrow * sigh This sure is not how I had it planned ...

We stayed home and got stuff done today. It was a great day. And, after the last two that I've had, I needed a good day at home.

Tomorrow, we have church and are getting together with Becky and her family. My mom is sick, so we'll see how that goes. It's going to be at Mom's house.


He should be home ... soon. I'm looking forward to having my family together this year for Christmas.
Sorry for the family's loss. Yes, I understand the relief. Everything happens the way it is suppose to.


I hope Becky can behave today. If Mom's not feeling well, she certainly doesn't need the aggravation.


Hugs sweetie! So happy Jared will be home. Are you surprising Jaydin again LOL I would imagine surprising her is getting harder to do.

Be easier if I quit making friends... but what fun would that be!

I do need to see if I have enough stamps for next year. I'd already purchased 60 to put back. Something I might need to take care of Monday while I"m out.

Soni... I hope you do okay today. Just take your time and drink lots.

Congrats on getting the bird punch. LOL I was planning on punching some for you this week and putting in with the book I forgot to mail to you. Silly me. I guess I'll just have to see what else I can find

I've already talked to Bob this morning. They were fogged in up by Chicago for awhile but he's moving again now. I've burned the trash and put dishes to soak. I need to get a light load of t-shirts washed for the line. Then into Memories for breakfast. I promised Cindy yesterday I'd come in today. She saw me go into the other restaurant for breakfast yesterday. Hazard of a small town LOL So I guess I need to give equal time.

I did some searching yesterday for Polish recipes and came up with a couple of Americanized options. One is a traditional krautburger recipe. They will be easy to keep warm and eat. The other is I love making traditional croissants. I decided in honor of Paris, I'd make small chocolate croissants.

When I go to Sam's in a couple weeks I"m on the hunt for European Butter... less water content which allows for flakier dough. I also found out King ARthur all - purpose flour has a higher protein count than most flowers and works best for flaky doughs.

America's Test Kitchen is an informative show... just sayin' LOL

Tammy's family tradition gifts are wrapped and bagged up ...I left her a message that I would be in town so I hope we can meet up ...I know she was gone a lot yesterday so I am not sure if she will leave the house today...

I text'd Krista to see if Keith would come and change my water bottle... but have not heard back from either of them ..I am off to get dressed and get ready to head out ... I hope to get back soon...
I think I only have three stops

heeheehee, I didn't mean for you to take that so literal! Of course there are plenty of folks who adore snow or no one would live north. But most of the folks who say "I wish it would snow" around here have not lived in it or maybe I am just hangin out with southerners more than not.

I'm home from breakfast and really want a nap. I have the light t-shirts on the line. I think I'm going to take care of the firewood, take a hot shower then crawl under the covers for awhile. Sounds like a good plan. Not what I was going to do with my afternoon but as Soni says.. it is what it is LOL

Wow... everyone must be out and about. Busy Busy Busy

The wood is in for the week. I probably should do the dab of dishes and clean out the fridge. I want to be on the couch with my stack of magazines (or coupons to file) by the time the Broncos game kicks off at 3.

I just made 3 batches of cookies this year, not very many but we need to have a few for Christmas Day. I tried double peanut butter choc chip...pretty good & 2 batches of white choc/mac nuts, everyone's fave.

Kelly, I just chatted with my SIL & she said she made 120 beer cookies! and she was who I was looking for the recipe for! She said she found a partly burnt paper with it on it & made up the rest. If she sends it to me do you want a copy?

Oh I know , last year she knew most everything, other than a sneaky craft item or or her purple crock pot... oh well we walked in Michaels and she asked what she could do to help, I said go pick out the last 2 cubes to finish off your craft room... they were 50 % off, so that was great ... So Tammy got a G/C to Kohls for equal $$ so I think everyone is all even...but I did notice Dustins stocking looks a bit thin~ so I will need to go get him some gum tomorrow and what ever else I can think of I did find a Lego pencil sharpner today fot him...

Oh Tammy and I wish we were there to enjoy those macadamia / white chocolate ones ...

I have not baked any I want to make a batch tomorrow , the choc super doopers I think ...
I told the kids we will bake while they are out of school
I need to do pretzels too, so hoping Cody will help, he likes to do that

Krista is making us a Red Velvet cake for Christmas day since she did not get it made for Tammy's birthday, so I am not even sure if I am going to do a pie ... This year it will all be different~ but it will be fine as long as we are all together, and happy and hopefully feeling better too

Other than to check mail yesterday , I had not been out side since Wedneday ...
Wow did that fresh air feel wonderful ~ It is mid 30's but very little wind ...
The stores were not bad, the parking lots were not bad either ... Krista said yesterday it was really over crowded every where , that is why she wanted to drive me , plus she knew I was still weak ...
We stopped at Tam's to drop off Tradition gifts, and I saw Tam and Brooke, Faith was napping ...I just stayed in the car, no need to pass these nasty germs

Krista stopped at grandpas and took him some candy, but he was sleeping and woke up confused

I am going to enjoy my tea and then wrap Tradition gifts for Krista's house
I let Krista get the fixings for Lasagna for tomorrows supper, Keith has to work until 3:30 so I thought that would be nice for them to have a sit down supper together and that is his favorite ... plus I might get a piece yum yum

Can you believe I got Tammy's camera card but forgot to get me a new one ...Oh well I think I did pretty good today, considering how I felt lol

If I did not have so much wrapping to do tonight, I bet I would go to bed early...

aren't we funny? we have to not only make the $$$ even out but how many gifts they open & how they look

We stopped at Tam's to drop off Tradition gifts, and I saw Tam and Brooke, Faith was napping ...I just stayed in the car, no need to pass these nasty germs

Krista stopped at grandpas and took him some candy, but he was sleeping and woke up confused

I am going to enjoy my tea and then wrap Tradition gifts for Krista's house
I let Krista get the fixings for Lasagna for tomorrows supper, Keith has to work until 3:30 so I thought that would be nice for them to have a sit down supper together and that is his favorite ... plus I might get a piece yum yum

Can you believe I got Tammy's camera card but forgot to get me a new one ...Oh well I think I did pretty good today, considering how I felt lol

If I did not have so much wrapping to do tonight, I bet I would go to bed early...
what are those? can you tell me after Christmas?

I can tell you know ! When Tammy was born I wanted to start a tradition from Wally and I to her, and then Krista too
My mom did so much of their Christmas, that I wanted some thing special from us~

So Mommy and Daddy always got the girls new Pj's, a book and a new stuffed animal Later when they were teens Wally started getting them something on his own ~ I always did the shopping ~ so it wasa treasure for the girls, they loved to see what "DADDY" got them

My reasoning was when pictures were snapped on Christmas morning, there would not be ratty pj's. or some ragged doll or animal~ and when we read their new book, it was time to go to bed so SANTA could come

The other tradition was to always read "TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS " and have hot cocoa too ...

When Tam and Krista Left home they still wanted tradition GIFTS AND OF COURSE WHEN THE GRANDS CAME IT WAS EXTENDED TO THEM Now I do not always do stuffed animals Tammy loves snomen, Krista loves Reindeers, so I sneak those in, Ali some times gets an ANGEL
... I ordered Cody a basketball pillow this year since his room is trans formed over to sports~ guess what is on back order ??
Some years it is fun to see what I can come up with ~ this year Tam and Krista did not get animals but they got treats for their favorite dog ~ One year I found screen cleaners that were animals, perfect for when Ali got her Netbook

Some years it is just a pain lol
when they were young I loved Kohls charity books and animals
Webkins helped a lot a couple of years too ...

Tradition gifts are to be opened on Christmas eve no matter where any of us are ...the kids usually call to say thank you ... it is fun, and most years I love the challenge ...

By the look of the amount of gifts that I need to be wrapping, it sure looks like Christmas Eve here No matter how hard I try to get it done, I always end up wrapping on Christmas Eve... I guess that might be TRADITION all its own lol

I thought Krista was bringing Cody over to get his birthday present, but I guess they went to a farm store with Keiths dad and Vikki, I imagine they went to eat too ... I feel bad it is 10 days late as it is ... and I wanted to make frosted pretzels , maybe tomorrow

Oh well K & K 's house tradition gifts are wrapped, and I have had supper, thank goodness for left overs , critters are all fed
I am off to my chair with some tea, and a book I started last night
I finally got my medicine in me so I will let it kick in... I am not sure what all I will do tonight

I finished up my wrapping and putting ribbons on today, so I'm all finished with all my Christmas stuff unless for some reason we go out tomorrow and I find stuff that I must buy.

She is hoping to run Steven's story next week (26th) as this week's edition was full of school/ church concerts. So if all goes well, I'll have 3 stories plus my column in the paper on the 26th Geez!
Oh good. Glad to hear that she will run Steven's story coming up. You're getting to be quite the journalist.

Then when I was nine I believe it was ~ I got to see my grandmother and grandfather remarried... they were divorced for 25 years before they found each other again ...
Very interesting life stories. That's sweet that your grand parents found each other again and remarried.

I wore down so fast this morning , I knew I would not make it out all afternoon, and Tammy called and was going to go meet Krista, so I just told them to go enjoy some sister time...I was not up to a fun day ...

I woke up a bit ago, and fixed some milk toast, I also did a few dishes and them mopped my messy / dirty floor ...
I am ready for more medicine and my chair again...
Best to stay at home when you're not feeling well. You certainly don't want to be really sick for Christmas day. Hope you're feeling better today.
