I hope you all had a Merry Christmas!

The day before Christmas I felt a cold coming on....I pushed through the baking. I was not enjoying myself at all. Thank goodness my shopping and wrapping was all done. My daughter came down the day before. She wanted to do a bit of baking herself. I usually would enjoy working together, but my nose was filled, my eyes were burning and I was feeling clammy. How could this be? I haven't been really sick for several years...a slight cold last year but it could have been allergies. I started juicing about 4 yrs ago and have been quite healthy. Then I realize the last few weeks have been crazy busy and I have barely been juicing. My resistance was giving me trouble, like pneumonia twice in a year. I have a great Doctor who recommended  instead of medicine I should work to build my resistance up. Needless to say both hubby and I have been quite healthy. Oh why on Christmas? You guessed it, by Christmas I felt totally like crap! My family came anyway and I probably infected them all. My daughter is home sick in bed now.

Who would have guessed that on Christmas eve we sat outside watching the chickens. We did not need a jacket. Christmas day was more of the same. Hubby let the girls out early on Christmas day. The Grandchildren held and played with the girls and I understand they got lots of treats and snuggles.

My granddaughter and Molly! No boots, gloves or jackets. Such a great day!
The girls helped get everything ready and I was not a lot of help.  The day turned out fine, but I couldn't wait to get into bed that night.

I am glad the holiday is over. I love putting Christmas up and preparing; I hate the actual day. (I know: I am a Scrooge.) I took Christmas down on Wed. the 23rd because we were going to daughter's for Christmas and I didn't want it here when we returned. It was lovely. The grands gave us colds for Christmas. Not COAL, colds. ugh. Happy New Year.
