We had a wonderful Christmas and Christmas Eve in spite of me having bronchitis. I am on antibiotics and two other medications for the congestion, cough, etc. I received a lot of nice things-gift certificates from Brian to Barnes & Noble and Starbucks, certificate for a hair style and dye, books (“Tuesdays with Morrie” and the complete novels of Charlotte and Emily Bronte), pajamas, bath and body works, a jump drive, espresso cups, etc…a desk calendar with crochet patterns for each day.

There is so much more to write about, but I won’t bore you all with the details. I missed more than a few days here. I was so busy with cooking a prepping and not feeling well that after Christmas I finally settled down. This bronchitis, I have, is driving me crazy. At times I can hardly breath. I finally went to the doctor’s this past Wednesday. The clinic was closed and so was my doctor’s. I had to wait until after Christmas to get medical attention. They gave me a chest x-ray that proved to be bronchitis. I had bronchitis eight months ago and I can’t believe that I have it again. Brian had to go back to the doctor’s yesterday to get more medication. He has had a continous cough with congestion. It seems we are passing this illness back and forth to each other.
Oh, before I sign off, Carrie bought this lemon for me. It is called a Ponderosa lemon. Look at the size of it compared to a regular lemon.
