I'm just getting over a nasty cold/sinus infection that's kept me down for the count for several weeks. 'Tis the season to get sick!
I finally sat down last weekend and wrote out my Christmas cards.
I put on some Christmas music, and fixed a delicious mug of cappuccino and some chocolate almond biscotti to get myself in the Christmas spirit.
Terry bought me this Old Country Roses mug years ago for Christmas. He didn't know it was one of my favorite patterns, but he instinctively knew it would make me happy.
My taste buds had started to come back! Yay!
I usually set up the Christmas tree and decorate it, but this year, Terry did it for me! He did a wonderful job. It looks beautiful!
Ordering gifts online is a joy, especially when you're too sick to go to the mall.
2011 was not a good year for us. This past June, our sweet little cat Penny died suddenly. It was a shock, and saddened us for many months. So many of my blogging friends also were writing about losing pets, and I stayed away from blogging so as not to read about any more sadness.
But time does heal, and life goes on.
I wish you all a beautiful holiday season.
Cherish your loved ones. Celebrate life and make merry!
And, in my next post, I'll tell a much happier tale!
