our neighborhood is feeling mighty cozy these days. sure, it's below zero sometimes.
but it still feels cozy. that's magic.
so i had plans to post about gingerbread cookies with icing today.
i made the dough. and that's as far as it went.
lord willing, next week we'll talk cookies.
i thought i was feeling better, see.
oh. i am so not. i awoke yesterday feeling horrible again. it's like the antibiotics i'm taking are fake.
strep throat will not leave me alone!
so yesterday, with what little energy i had, i headed out to grab some groceries.
i remembered wishing i had a coffee to give the salvation army bell ringers...so i stopped quick at starbucks.
i pushed my cart over to this jolly soul as he rang his bell in the minus ten air. i handed him the cheery red cup, and popped some cash in the shiny bucket. merry christmas, stay warm! we exchanged. and then we sorta chuckled. about the stay warm part. because, hey, it's hilariously cold outside.
i went on into the store, mostly forgetting what i'd gone there for in the first place.
thankfully, there were huge tins of holiday butter cookies on display. those must have been what i needed :)
the cookies waited for me in my car while i visited the doctor.
you should not be feeling this bad, you need more meds! she said. well, yes. i agree.
i was prepared for a shot of antibiotic. what i was not prepared for was where the shot would go.
not in my arm.
that was less than pleasant.
the good news is, i think the heavy-duty shot to my booty tmi? is working!
i think i may actually be heading toward wellness. praise the lord!
is this the cutest copy of a christmas carol you've ever seen?
it's short on words and long on darling illustration and charm. and i treated myself to it.
it's the season of giving you know :)
my little elijah. oh my heart.
even after long days of therapy, he is a champ this week when we go out to pick up patrick from work.
we sing and play transformers while we wait. sometimes we get french fries :)
i just love him, all bundled up and happy like he's been lately.
p.s. eleven sleeps 'til christmas
