I'm sick again. 2nd time in a month. This time I've come down with strep throat. Never had that before and I can tell you it's not fun at all - had no idea that it felt like razor blades in my throat each time I swallow.
Anyway, my plans to decorate for Christmas are on hold for a few days until I feel better. The doctor has me on antibiotics and they are working well after only 24 hours so hopefully by the weekend I'll be back to my old self. In the meantime I was looking back at some pictures I took last weekend.
The burning bush has lost just about all of leaves.
The berries look lovely and have become the perfect feast for my feather friends. Soon even those berries will be gone once the birds finish them up.
Our holly tree is standing proudly in the yard. It's huge - probably 20 feet high and looks so festive this time of year. After a snowfall it is even more beautiful and a perfect place for cardinals to perch.
Every December I clip a few branches so I've got some fresh holly in the house. I use it in vases, on the mantel, and tucked under arrangements.
While I was out in the yard last weekend I saw some carrot tops poking through one of the raised beds. Amazingly there were two baby carrots underneath that I could harvest. It was a nice surprise and they were deliciously sweet.
Well a nice hot cup of tea with honey is calling my name. I've got the DVD machine loaded and I'm ready to a watch a movie. At least being sick gives me an excuse to cuddle up with Ellie and relax in the middle of the day.
