These photos were taken at 7:30 AM. Although the schools near our house are closed, Minneapolis and St. Paul have not put out that kind of announcement. Guess that means the conditions are ever changing. South of us and into Iowa and Wisconsin there is even more snow, but around here, I think the blowing is probably the biggest reason for keeping the kids and buses off the road. Even so, it is gorgeous from my bay window out to the golf course and the backyard is still pristine and drifted. If I felt better it might even be a cookie baking day, but maybe not. lol
Kevin commented that he knew I was still feeling pretty lousy because I was actually watching all these Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel. I do feel miserable with this pneumonia and nasty cough, but the movies are great company and help me pass the time while I have no energy to do other things.
Even so, yesterday, I did a lot of organizing of end of the year paperwork for my quilting business and all my other quilting activities. I set up a table and my laptop and went to work. Felt good to actually do some thinking! There is a little more to do today, and then I am back to finishing my yo-yo monkey and doing some more hand quilting. For the morning I am just enjoying Christmas music, but I may turn on those "feel good" Christmas movies after lunch.
For today, I will do the hot lemon water and such along with the medicine and see if I can quiet things a little more. Supposedly I am supposed to be able to go back to work at the quilt shop tomorrow if I have no fever today. I am going to give my boss the option because the coughing may just be too annoying and because our customers are a little more senior. Would hate to scare them off.
After being away for 31 years, we are finally home again. We are South Dakotans through and through, so this is were we want to spend our "retirement" years. My husband and I are getting ready to open a custom woodworking business with me being the paper pusher and the woodworker's apprentice. Along with that I am going to continue quilting and also work as a substitute teacher. Life is good!
