The Crud Before Christmas

Yes, dear friends, once again I have managed to catch the crud right before Christmas.  I missed two days of work earlier this week and am not feeling a whole lot better today.  UGH!  I told DH if I HAD to get sick right before Christmas (which I seem to do every stinking year) I am glad it was this week and not the very week before Christmas.

While I was lying on the sofa trying to figure out whether to sleep or watch TV a wonderful package arrived from my friend Vera.

 This little bird on the pincushion is tiny!  Vera's stitching is just gorgeous.

And isn't this just cute!?  I hung it on my Christmas tree right away.

So what are you up to the weekend?  I plan to stay in and try to get rid of this cold/flu whatever it is so I will be ready for Christmas next week.  Can you believe it?  Only 8 days until Christmas.

Hope you feel better soon - rest up and drink plenty of oj (possibly mixed with vodka - LOL)- seriously take care. There really doesn't seem to be a better cure than sleep and time.

Oh, what a time to get sick, Myra! I sure hope this bug gets out of your system soon... Lovely gifts from Vera--that tiny cardinal in the cage is adorable and I love the fact that it's cage is lined with musical notes!

I'm trying to get these darn cards done this weekend and then doing some cleaning and baking... Hope you feel much better tomorrow :)

Oh, Poor Myra!! :(

Also, that redbird ornament is too darling!! I don't have the "thing" for cardinals that you do, but I DO have a thing for tiny ornaments like this...something about the wire frame, I think!

Perfect!

Rest well, and feel better soon!

What a fantastic package to cheer you up from the crud! My mom came down with it this weekend, so I've been trying to nurse her, and turn-about is great. I'm having fun chastising her for not drinking enough fluids.
