Observations this day before Christmas ...

... toss and turn, turn and toss; can't
sleep can't - dang nose runs and then
blocks up until I can't b r e a t h e -
only to run away again.  Hot/cold/hot;
temperature fluctuations worse than
Texas weather.  Could be worse,
could be the 'flu.  Glad it's not t h a t ...
Cold out there, 27 degrees; feels like
snow, but sunny skies prevent white
from falling here.  Now in Oklahoma
and in the Plains, in the Midwest,
they're dreaming the white will stop.
Hints of winter precipitation for New
Year's?  What they're saying, anyway ...
Karen running a few errands, I'm home
alone.  The shopping is all done, so
don't have to worry about getting out
and exposing all to my cold - bah,
HUMbugs.  Not a grinch:  from my home
to yours, may your holiday be merry and
bright.   Have a very Merry Christmas!

I like this kinda' sad reminder of how I've been feeling, the last few days to Karla!
Hang In!
I've been drinking warm ginger ale, with my homemade ( I struggled to wait for my roaster to cook and get veg.s ready to chop, and added egg noodles)! for my Chicken Noodle Soup, garlic, onion, little spice and sliced thin carrots and celery) Wish I could share with ya' I made enough to freeze too, and taking MUXINEX DM, and it's helping, and lots of body rest under warm blankets! Watching FoodNetwork off and on for hrs.
I wish you a stronger, healtheir, happier YOU soon!
Hope your Christmas was better than you thought it could be, and a Happier more successful NEW YEAR - 2008 -
Warm hugs,LOVE, and Blessings, Warrior Purple Lady Sweet Sheooxoo
