A Visit From the Grinch!

The Grinch has paid me a visit this Christmas in the form of the flu!!!!!! and yes, I had the flu shot!  So no beautiful candle light service at our Church, no dinner with friends, and no brunch with my DD and SIL.  But I am still able to appreciate the joy and beauty of Christmas and it's amazing story of love.  I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas and the Grinch stays far from your home.

 I finally got this finished.  It was stitched form last years JCS Christmas ornament issue.


 At least I can look out the window from my couch and see this pretty little visitor, a varied thrush!

Again, have a wonderful Christmas.  I'm back to my couch, tylenol, and tissues!!

  18. My daughter and I had a conversation last night about how doctors and pharmacists are pushing the flu shots, but anyone and everyone who gets one GETS the flu! What good is that! Giving the flu to people who would otherwise NOT have gotten it?!? We don't get it, and we will NOT get that shot! Rest easy over the holiday... Big Hugs!

  21. Barb,I sympathise.What was a respiratory infection has turned into a two week virus fest. I eventually lost my voice on Monday and it is still croaky. The flu vacc. has saved a bad asthma attack though. It didn't stop me appreciating the last two days of family gatherings.
    Hope you are on the mend and will be healthy for New Year

    I hope for a healthier start to the New Year for you.

  23. I hope you had a nice Christmas Day in spite of the flu. And that you are feeling somewhat better by now.
    THe Santa on the little pillow is so sweet, I have to look up the pattern in my JCS issue.
    Hopefully you can start the new year fully recovered. Happy New Year.
