Yesterday after I posted here I wound up going back to lay down in bed.  I didn't even knit.Apparently my body is being overrun by a cold or something I am fighting,and apparently not winning against. I woke up this AM with a horrible deep cough,running nose,plugged ears,light headache,scratchy throat and mild fever. Lovely. So suffice it to say that today will be another PJ day. I woke up at 9:00 AM. I couldn't even enjoy a cup of coffee.It just didn't go down well,and I usually have three cups each morning in my Wilder Homestead mug from our trip to Almanzo Wilder's boyhood home in Burke,NY. I have only drunk 3/4 of one cup,and have no interest in finishing the rest. I have taken some nighttime cold medicine,in hopes that it will knock me out and I can sleep. It's that time of the year I guess.

We got at least a foot of snow here in Middleton.It could be possibly more,but the wind drifted the snow so much that it's hard to tell if we got more. The boys are going to go back out to re-snow blow and shovel. More snow fell after they were done yesterday,and like I mentioned,the snow got blown around quite a bit. The sky now is pale blue,and the sun is shining,making the snow sparkle.It's quite pretty.There is nothing like the day after a snow storm.Everything is so fresh and pretty.

When I finally rolled out of bed,Rick was on the computer and told me not to look at the screen.In fact, he told me to go back to bed until he was done.Hmm.  When he was finally done doing what ever he was doing,I teased him by asking him if he was chatting with his girlfriend :) He is up to something,but what,I  don't know. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm. He likes to surprised me with things,so one never knows what it could be.

Well, I am getting tired and  zone-like,so I guess I will end this for today,go curl back up in bed,and watch some Dr Quinn until I fall asleep.

Have a wonderful day,wherever in the world you may be!!!!!!!
