Christmas has come and gone again. We again were blessed with a white Christmas and the snow has remained pretty well through the holidays. Temperatures have dropped to bone chilling lows and O Wise One is busy most days keeping the animals in warm bedding and unfrozen water bowls.
Our holiday was spent at home enjoying a light meal of homemade chicken soup and lots of orange juice because I have relapsed from my recent cold/flu. I have decided that the only way I am going to get better is to quarantine myself away from the grandchildren long enough to totally heal and my doctor agrees. SO I did not get to see the grandchildren for the holidays. I did not want to reinfect them with this bug that I am suffering with and they were preparing to go out of town to visit other family. So instead we hunkered down and I spent most of the holidays on the couch visiting with O Wise One and Baby O and watching old movies. I have to say it was enjoyable. After the grandchildren get back from their trip I hope to be able to have a holiday dinner and exchange gifts.
But for now I will be a good patient and stay indoors and down. They are saying we may get more snow Sunday night. I have so much that I want to do it is hard to rest but I am trying.
The countryside outside my windows has been beautiful and with new gardening books that Baby O bought me for Christmas and seed catalogs rolling in daily I have been catching up on my reading and dreaming up lots of new projects.
I hope everyone had a safe and happy Christmas and will have an equally happy New Year.
Blessings from The Holler
