Cold in - Cold out....


Youngest daughter and hubby were back in town this weekend (from Massachusetts). He had a hockey game here in town so we spent another whirlwind weekend of activity. That probably explains why I'm sick today. Nasty cold and wicked cough. I'm just not getting the rest I need. The holidays have taken a toll on me. I know...the holidays seem so long ago....but my tree is still up! Don't worry. It's coming down today. It just went up so late that I needed to enjoy it a wee bit more.


So Saturday my daughters and I had a film fest and watched a bunch of old videos. I couldn't believe how thin I was! And not all that long ago. What happened?


It certainly motivated me to step things up a bit. I made my little inspirational collage and it's hanging on the fridge. (Just can't find the camera to take a pic of it - but I will!) Hopefully it will keep me focused as we begin this long stretch of winter here where pretty much nothing is happening. For years we always went to Myrtle Beach and camped just to get a does of sunshine and warmth in the winter, but after my first hubby passed away I sold the Motor Home and it hasn't happened since. I miss those trips. A lot.


At least the sun is shining today (in spite of the frigid reading on the thermometer.) Maybe I'll go sit in front of the big window in the living room and read a book while I nurse this cold. it's not the same as a sandy beach...but we do what we can, right?

Hope you feel better soon and enjoy the warmth of the sun, wherever you may find it.

I would love to see a picture of that collage. I think that is a great idea. I might do that myself. I think I have a sinus infection. I thought I could get in to see the doctor but he just called my pharmacy with some medicine. I hope you feel better soon.

do what I used to do on those cold gray ohio days: dab some sunscreen behind your ears and on your wrists.
the really really smelly remind you of beach kind (hello banana boat!).

it worked to lift my mood tremendously...just the scent of it all.

hope you are feeling better soon.

My tree is up too......but by choice :)

Still cold here but that sun does wonders! I open all the blinds and let it pour in ;)

Sorry you have a cold. Is there still a lot of cold there. We have had 70 degrees here. Just not right. Global warming??? We have the camper, but there is nowhere close enough to be warm in the beach type thing. My kids are going skiing this weekend. The 5 and 6 year old will go to ski school. That is a little scary to me, but oh well. I will babysit for the younger ones. That will be fun.
