post christmas post

Happy post Christmas week!!

When I look around the house I can see that Christmas has come and gone.  There are few presents left under the tree,  half empty cake plates and cookie tins on the table and left overs from Christmas dinner still left in the fridge.
Christmas came and went in a blur ~ literally ~ since I started with a fever on Christmas eve.    My family were a huge help in making Christmas day a success.   We enjoyed the morning opening presents, ate a great breakfast,  napped, and then enjoyed a great dinner with friends and family.  I made it through dinner and then my body just gave up fighting..   the fever spiked and everything began to hurt. 
I spent the rest of Christmas night and the day after on the sofa wrapped up in my favorite Christmas gift ~ a warm fleece blanket from my girls.

This morning,  the fever is gone, my head is a little clearer, and my throat is a little less sore.      If I can get myself motivated I would like to get out and pick up some groceries so that I can give my christmas wishlist cookbook a try.


I'll let y'all know what recipes I try and how we like them.

I am half way through my blog roll and it looks like everyone had a beautiful christmas.   I have enjoyed all of your stories, photos and recipes.    I will catch up with the rest of you  today!!!!

Have a great post christmas week friends.
