Its a Wrap and some Snowman Soup.

I finally got around to making my snowman soup. I do this every year and give it out to anyone who stops by for a Christmas visit, or I send them to neighbours and friends.

Kristy and her boyfriend, Blake. They exchanged gifts today. Today was spent wrapping presents. Hubby and I spent most of the day doing this. We kicked the girls downstairs and brought everything into the dinning room. So much better than sitting on the bedroom floor Christmas eve, which is what we usually do. My back won't be crying tomorrow ;)

Even Rose got in on the wrapping, teehee. Well for the last few weeks or maybe closer to a month now, I have been feeling a cold coming on. So I would eat some onions and nap when I was tired. Well today I think it caught up to me. Grrr. I have been hot then cold....and no it isn't hot flashes! Plus I can feel it in my chest. So I did take a nap after wrapping gifts. Actually I had to, I was so drained I couldn't even make sense when I talked. OK so that's nothing new.

I finally got my parcels all ready to be shipped. I will put them in the mail 1st thing tomorrow. Then I will feel a bit better about being caught up.

So off to bed for me. Oh did you all watch Survivor?! So happy Fabio won. Heather and I were rooting for him :)

Hope your weekend was a creative one.

  11. I hope you are feeling better today. Colds are so miserable. That was me last week. Pooped out today after working the last 2 days. Supposed to be off until New Years, but I have a feeling I will be working extra since we are so, so busy.
    Curtis and Cait arrived home safely, ahead of us having 6in. of new snow overnight. Brisk out too.
    Hope your day is a creative one.
