A Week at Home and Enough Hot Tea!

 Well, this tree has been my constant companion this week, seeing that I've spent the entire week at home nursing a cold and sore throat. Uggg!

I had so much on my To-Do list this week, not to mention two birthdays and a family dinner that was supposed to happen last night. But illness has a way of making life come to a halt and so most of the plans went out the window.

Nevertheless, I've caught up on some planning for the new year, cleaned out some old files, made some headway on my puzzle and watched way too many episodes of Heartland. 

I've finished one book, started two more, gone for a grocery pick up, called my brother, talked to my mom,  ordered and picked up some photos prints from Walgreens and cooked very little. 

I've had more hot tea than I care to think about, sat on the porch in the afternoon sun and gone outside to take pictures of my plants that have decided to bloom in December. 

All in all, it's been a good week and I can breath today, so that's always a good sign. 

I will cautiously revise my To-Do list today and see how far I get. Not sure how far from home I will go, if at all, but we'll see how the day plays out. 

I hope you're doing well and nothing is holding you back πŸ˜€πŸ€§

Until Next Time...


  1. Hope by Christmas day you will be better!!! Merry Christmas to you and your family!! (Lemon scones are good with hot teaπŸ˜‰)

  2. Hope you're feeling better. How nice to have blooming flowers in December.
    Wow that is a lot of presents!! :)

    1. Thank you :) Yes, the flowers were a nice surprise. And yes, lots of presents, but yet, for a family of 6 adults and 5 grandkids, it's really just an average of 2-3 each. I paced myself this year :)

  3. I know how you feel! I didn't feel well last week either...thankfully mine was shorter lived and after the morning hours passed, I felt okay. I did work at home, but I also took several cat naps during the day. I do that when I'm sick! It's like my body requires extra sleep. I hope you're feeling better now! It's terrible timing being sick at Christmas.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! Come back soon!
