but the cough remains. Thought I was getting better right up to the time my cold circled around and kicked me a good one in the keister. The cough is much better now and I am finally feeling good enough to be up and about again. Just don't bounce back as quickly as I used to.
Duane brought me a bag of those lovely, sweet little Clementines and a bucket of ice cream. Have been doing a pretty good job of eating my way through the Clementines. And yes, I know it is winter. And it is miserably cold outside. But I still love ice cream and a treat always seems to make things better.
Later this week Duane will set up my new shelving unit and I can move cases of home canned food from the floor of my bedroom to the shelves. I'm using the two bottom shelves for my fabric, quilting supplies and yarn. I wanted to get that done before the cleaners come on the 20th of this month. Other than some frozen hash browns and 20 lbs. of regular potatoes to dehydrate, I have nothing planned as far as canning or dehydrating goes. I really want to get some serious sewing on quilt tops done.
I hear about major snow storms across the country, but so far they have missed us. One day the temperatures are in the 20's and the next day, below zero. We have had only an inch or two of snow now and then - just enough to keep the roads a bit slippery. Duane has a good sized hill to climb going to work and he has to navigate the curves on that road downhill coming home at night. He tells me that hill is probably the most clear of any road in the state. The county keeps it well sanded and salted. If they didn't, there would be a pile-up of cars at the bottom every night.
That's about all I know. I have pretty much let the world continue to turn without any help from me the past few days. Hope to get caught up on reading my favorite blogs in the next day or so. It is nice to be back in the land of the living once again. :)
