Light at the End of the Tunnel . . .

OK. Today I feel marginally better. The good news is that the problem with my Photoshop software was in my computer - just needed to be rebooted again (I have a tendency to leave it running without rebooting for too long a time). I reinstalled the software and am back in business. Yay! I took a photo to prove it!

Here's my little tree this year, and two of my holiday geese. Actually, this was my mom's little tree. She wrangled it away from some florist many years ago - she adored it and they said it was part of their display . . . of course, it came home with her ;-) It's really awesome - I just take it out of the box, fluff it up, plug it in and there it is. I'm not decorating hugely this year. Simple seems to be better for me right now - I'm sure because of this stupid, stupid cold. Still, I have a few things out and they are enough :-)

I managed to get to Walgreens yesterday - Mucinex is my new best friend. The cold has shifted mostly to my chest. As the Brits say, I have a chesty cough now, and the Mucinex is helping to break that up - which is good. I'd like to avoid an asthma issue if possible, and I'd also like to avoid an antibiotic. I think my body is strong enough to fight this on its own :-)

I'm so NOT a good patient.

I have been spending some time pouring over the list of pattern choices for Year of Stash Socks since I pick for January. If you have thought about joining us, please do!! Toddle on over to the YOSS blog and join the fun!! It's time to actually KNIT some of that yarn we've been stockpiling. :-)

I've also been watching an inordinant amount of telly.

Is it just me, or is this GEICO wood chuck commercial as absolutely hilarious as I think it is? :-D

I think it's just you, dear. But then again, I am not in a jolly mood, so maybe it's just me who DOESN'T think it's funny....

Well, I agree with's right up there with the e-trade baby commercials in our household's opinion!

Yes, the wood chucks chucking wood hilarious to me, too.

I think everyone has been catching that cold. Once it starts breaking up from your chest you should be better.

The only decorating I've done so far is to distribute cinnamon scented pine cones around the house. But I will be putting something up soon.
