|The Christmas Tree|
First of all, I wish you all a peaceful Christmas Eve.
I had a rough night, last night. I felt achy and cold. Got up once and threw up. Not the best night in awhile.
Felt a little bit better, today. Not much. Very tired.
A friend and her two daughters visited at noon and brought us lunch. I gave them their gifts, not quite realizing that daughter had wanted to add something more to the gifts to the two girls! She was disappointed; and once I realized it, I was upset. :(
I did some office-related work in the afternoon and another friend brought over more food! I am abundantly blessed with several days worth of lunches and dinners. There's no more room in the fridge or the freezer!
Later, both daughter and I took naps.
Since I woke up, I've run a load of dishes in the dishwasher, sent in 2 work products to the office, had a light dinner, and am just relaxing. In years past, I've always stayed up to watch Midnight Mass from the Vatican, but this year, I think I'll just have an early night.
I was invited to Christmas lunch by one of my friends, but I declined the invitation. I was invited to Christmas dinner by one of my cousins, but I declined that invitation, too. I don't want to risk going out and catching a cold or cough. So, daughter and I will spend a quiet day at home, tomorrow. Hopefully, we'll both feel a little less tired, tomorrow.
My mother saw a wreath with snowmen around it in a catalog, one year, and liked it. So, when I found some premade felt snowmen at a discount store, I bought them and hot glued them to an artificial pine wreath base. Then, because it needed a little color, I added the red velvet bows. My mother loved it. This wreath is at least 15 years old!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Friends who visit and bring me lunches and dinners
- Other friends who call and chat
- A fridge and freezer full of food
- A heater that works!
- Still having hair!
