    Thursdays #720 - The New Year is coming!

    It's cold and cloudy in Chicago today (unlike yesterday's 50F- so unusual for December). I have hot water on for tea. I am rummaging through recipes to prepare on New Year's day for luck. My grandparents always ate creamed herring, which I really don't like. When I was a staff nurse I had co-workers who would always eat greens on New Year's Day. So I have water on for tea, I can make coffee and there are probably cookies here somewhere. Welcome!
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Oatmeal cookies, maybe, or still some gingerbread ones?
    I definitely take hot black tea, please.

    I have leftover Christmas cookies - spritz trees - to share! I am terribly sick, and just had some chicken soup, which will hopefully help.

    I feel about 10% better today, could even speak for a few minutes, which was an improvement. By all the evidence I have seen, this "bug" just takes a while. It wiped out Kermit entirely for almost three days, and I have needed more sleep than usual now that it is my "turn" to battle it.

    I'm that you are feeling a little better. Get as much rest and fluids as possible.
    The bug this winter season seems to be especially obnoxious, everybody around me has been getting sick. I have been lucky so far!
