Well, it's not Friday, so I am a bit late on the "Quick Takes." I have been sick for a week with bronchitis. I am fortunate to be able to work from home, but even that has been tough since I feel so crummy. Today, most our county is shut down due to insanely cold temps after heavy snowfall yesterday. The air temp was 15 below zero when I got up this morning...wind chills are 30 below or worse. Crazy cold!
But I haven't posted for a few days...and I decided today would be a good day to get back on track. Here are my 7 Quick Takes:
Bronchitis stinks. No one wants to be around you when you are coughing and hacking (can't blame them) and it is really hard to work when TALKING is a big part of your job. Sigh.
Yesterday, I saw 2 episodes of a show on HGTV where couples were buying homes in Hawaii. Considering we got over 8 inches of snow, then blowing winds and record breaking temps...Yeah, I think Hawaii sounds REALLY good about now.
I did a lot of reading yesterday...compared to recently. It felt good. I truly hope to read a lot more this year, like I did when I was younger.
We usually host a 12th Day of Christmas party at our house for the ministry, but had to cancel this year due to my illness and the storm. While I missed the party, I did not miss the clean-up, before and after! (But my house is a mess right now since we didn't have company. Eventually, I'll have to do something about that.)
My husband has been cooking a lot during these cold days. He loves to cook; I love to eat. I hate to exercise. That's a problem.
I had a phone consultation scheduled this morning at 9 a.m. My throat was scratchy, but I know this woman, and she was aware of my illness. What she didn't know is the fact that I was in my jammies, and I had serious bed head. The advantages of working from home!
I wonder if I can just stay home all week again. Sick or not, I hate leaving the house in the winter. Bears have the right idea. Hibernate!
Thanks for stopping by again...Stay Warm!!
