How appropriate that on the first day of winter, we got our first snow.
It wasn't much and most of it happened overnight, but the winds here have been fierce.
At times, it was hard to sleep last night because the gutters kept banging against
the house and the windows were rattling.
Guess it's time to hang up the decorative snowflakes!
I'm ready to display my snowmen too, but I've been waiting for hubby to hang
some shelving and frames on the kitchen wall.
I think I'll do a snowman theme on the shelves.
Ready to go...
This looong, blank wall will soon be filled...
Even though I've been sick, I've been doing some baking. I get really bored when I'm sick.
I can only read so much or watch so much TV when I have to get up and do something.
This morning, I baked streuselkuchen. A classic crumb cake. So good with a cuppa tea!
This hasn't been a good week for me as far as injury and illness.
This past Monday afternoon - soon after I posted that I was looking forward to my yoga class -
I was carrying something out to my garage, and I fell down the three steps leading into my garage.
I'll be OK - I have a lot of nasty external bruises as well as a bruised tailbone, but it
could've been a lot worse. I could've easily broken some bones, or hit my head,
or severely injured my back. I already have three herniated disks, so my tailbone is
really hurting. Actually feels better when I'm up and around. Yoga stretches help, too.
And then late Wednesday night, I could feel a cold coming on.
It's now full-blown head congestion, sinus pain, dripping nose, hacking cough.
I'm resting when needed, drinking lots of water and tea, and taking vitamin C and
some herbal supplements.
Hubby is home from work and I've got roasted potatoes in the oven.
I'm going to try a new recipe for pork tenderloin medallions and a corn casserole.
Even though I'm sick, I actually have an appetite. I guess that's a good thing. :-)
