Thanks to The Good LORD...I am feeling better! I called in Tuesday night and was on call last night and I have not left the house...hardly left my bed! So I have rested. No more fever...just the remnants of the cold.

I did not watch YOUR president give his State of the Delusion speech last night but I have been visiting a blog of a very smart young lady. The Parisienne Farmgirl did a fabulous job summing up his address & had me laughing out of my chair! So I thought I should share her post with you...I hope she want mind!

I hope there are things in your home that warm you & make you feel good. I have always loved this spare room in front of the house.

The room is full of Little Package's toys & all of her clothes and things. I dont know if she will ever claim this room as hers or not but it sure has her name on it.

This is a Winter sunrise view out the windows of this room.

Surprisingly, I have been able to grow something successfully for more than a season. This old trunk in front of the window has provided a perfect growing area for these Violets.

This new pot is full of Paper White bulbs. I cant get over how fast they are growing.

Well my throat is still scratchy so I am off to fix a cup of hot King Cole (strait from Canada!) tea! cough-cough!

So I was suppose to go to the Golden Isles shopping with my Mama today but yesterday afternoon I started getting a little bit of a sore throat. During the night I acquired the body aches & a low grade my day has been spent in bed.

We got more rain last night bringing the total to 5 inches in the past week. Way too much water here at one time.

However, the sun is shining and the wind is blowing ferociously. Maybe it will help dry some of this wet mess up!

So I am going to have another cup of hot tea and watch something sorely reruns of Desperate Housewives!

A winter morning.

Over 2 1/2 inches today! The pond is running out into the woods, the yard is full, and the roads are a mess. It makes for great sleeping weather...glad I'm on night shift!!

The birds are hitting the feeders pretty good.

We are planning a fishing trip to Florida for next month. I am ready to go!!

I planted a pot of Paper Whites that I hope will bring a touch of early Spring to these dreary Winter days.

So what is going on in your neck of the woods?

So this Winter I tried my first SMORE! Yep...first time ever.

I have been trying to start some traditions to involve Little Package and our family. Smores night, I thought would be a good start.

It starts with a nice fire in the fireplace.

Chad, Little Package's Daddy, is the maker of all Smores.
Little Package has the duty of passing them out to everyone. This job she obtained all on her own, I might add.

Now I have become ADDICTED to them!!! Who would have thought that 3 little ingredients would be soooooo good!!

But when you dont have a fire........

..........these little suckers fill the gap very well!

Nope.....never had had any of these either until my Mama told me they were the next best things to Smores!!!!!! What cave have I been living in!

Thank You LORD for such good tasting traditions...and getting me out of that cave!

So what's your secret comfort food?

So the Christmas tree is packed away for another year! Whew...glad it's done!

Had to make a day trip to Atlanta and back to take care of some business. Whew...glad that is done!!

Now there is this little matter to attend.....this VERA that comes to me via my home PC, my work laptop....and via my BLACKBERRY for Heaven's sake!!

So what would you do??!!!

It has been consistently cold here for 3 weeks! I have enjoyed it though.

I have a confession to make.

My Christmas tree is still up!


I hate myself!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010!!??!!

I cant believe it is the year 2010! Doesn't that seem crazy? While most folks were ringing in the New Year in some festive fashion, I worked the night shift in ICU where the combination of a Blue Full Moon & New Year's eve parties brought all the crazies & non-compliant folks out to the hospital! Half of them ended up in my department.

Any who...I made it through the night and home for a few hours sleep. We had a traditional Southern New Year's Day dinner....Baked ham, black eye peas, mustard greens & cornbread. Desert was baked apple pie & ice cream & mama made a FANTABULOUS chocolate cake.

So now we have our good luck & prosperity for the new year. What about yall?
