Whole Lot of Nothing Goin' On

I don't have much anything to blog about but thought I better let you know I'm still alive....barely. My asthma seems to think now would be a really good time to rear it's ugly head and I've been struggling with that.

As Sandra pointed out to me, it's my own fault as I said Christmas wasn't happening in my life this year, so I've missed all the festivities and parties. She was only kidding, but it is rather ironic. Every day I struggle to get enough energy to do something - anything, but it's an uphill battle.

I'm meeting with my 'adopted' granddaughters tomorrow and I had planned to go out today to get them something. Well, we had the storm of the century here today and my car is currently stuck in the mall parking lot. Let's just say it doesn't like snow any more than I do and leave it at that. Unfortunately, I got stuck before I had a chance to shop so my pathetic gift to the girls is going to be a money bag. I made 2 of these little bags and I'm going to fill them with Loonies and Toonies ($1 and $2 coins).

It's the first time I've been near my sewing machine in what seems like forever.

Have you seen one of these?

It's an Aerogarden and is used primarily to grow herbs and lettuce year round in the house. I want one. It's all Judy's fault as I'd never even heard of them until she mentioned them on her blog. She ended up getting a competitive make, but from the research I've done, the Aerogarden gets better reviews. When I mentioned it to Leo, his response was - what do you want that for - you never cook! I just know if I had one of these I would cook more - honest! Fresh pesto, fresh lettuce for sandwiches....mmmmmmm

One festivity I didn't miss was our Stitch N Chat Christmas lunch on Tuesday.

We met at a great local Chinese buffet (which explains the palm trees???) and exchanged gifts. A great time was had by all and we got some imaginative and creative gifts.

Sorry you are feeling so crummy. Try to save up your energy to do the things you really want to do and let the rest slide. That's the philosophy that has gotten me through the last 6 years!
