Carol, hope you feel better soon. It sucks to be sick, especially when you have to deal with guests.

Laurie, did the morphine shot help? I'm so glad to hear your meals are being taken care of and that you are managing the pain. Hope you feel all better soon.

I eventually got the tourtère filling made. I took a couple of naps in between. Then I let it cool at room temperature and then in the fridge. Finally got it into the freezer around 02h. I tasted it, oh yeah, that is yummy. Now I really want tourtière, but I don't have the energy to make the pie crusts and assemble it. I guess I'll just have to wait.

Surrre you arrre


I can't believe the lack of plows out. Usually I get one down my road every 30-40 minutes when it's conditions like this. Let alone none of the main roads are being maintained. Weird.

And to top it off, Ginat Eagle didn't have any good looking ribs

Sitting here in our daughter's kitchen catching up on what is happening in your lives and, like pac, grateful that we're reasonably healthy. Well Himself has a miserable cold now but he's still alive. ;-)

Not sure how grateful our daughter is that we're messing up her ability to get enough sleep, but she rarely complains. What a sweetie!

Thanks, Taxy. Yes, the shot did help to ease the pain and helped me to rest. I slept most of Christmas Day.

Yes, having dinners taken care of - mostly for TB. My neighbour had her daughter bring over a huge bag of apples and a salad mix for me. Very thoughtful.

I can't eat a lot right now and TB has a lot of restrictions, but for the next 4 days we don't have to make dinner! What a great present!

I am curled up in my new electronic blanket in my chair with a cup of hot lemon and a piece of toasted banana bread. I am watching the second Santa Clause movie. Pain? manageable!
Oh good! We're thinking of you, always.

With love,

I hope all of you are feeling better! Mamma, Lakisha, and I all awoke with a very nasty cold. We have to stay away from DA, so we're all honking and snorting and sneezing and coughing down here. Papa's well, he's up there with DA and we all had to have separate meals.

Papa and DA are well, so they had their meals separately upstairs while the rest of us made many loud noises down here. Mamma curses when she sneezes, Lakisha sounds like a moose mating call, and I hate the sneezing because it hurts my back where that gash is. Oh that does hurt. I gave Mamma and Lakisha my bed and I have the couch so when the sneezing and coughing hurts my back I'll awake no one.

We finished some of the leftovers from Christmas dinner. Those are so good! I'm wondering if I need to Google breathing problems. My chest feels very heavy so I have to breathe lightly or I'll have awful coughing.

What a mess. Christmas is not the time to be sick! Uck!

With love,
~Cat

What is going on? It seems almost everyone in the forum is not feeling very well. I am feel much better today. Back to my old self and feel like doing something today. I am going to put my Christmas present to use. Spike put together my floor stand for holding my embroidery hoop. Now I can use both hands for sewing. It was something I have wanted for eons. But I always considered it a "maybe someday" item. Someday came. My daughter asked me what I wanted for Christmas. She told me I could spend up to $100 and email the site to her. This item was less than $50.00. I hate to spend someone else's money.

So I am going to take advantage of feeling good and sit in the lovely chair Poo gave me last year and sew.

Spike also bought me a new keyboard. I learned to type on a 1920's old Underwood typewriter when I was in school. As a result I tend to hit the keys hard. Even to this day. I go through keyboards like they were a vassal with holes in it. And this one is wireless. I am making a concerted effort to type lightly now. It is a lot easier on these old fingers and less painful.

Mom, who's 85, has done something to her back, so I'm on full-time nurse duty. The sister's on her way to El Paso to pick her kids. I'm looking forward to having them around for a week or so. I'm especially looking forward to having the boy around. He's 12, and he and his Uncle Mitch like to do stuff together. He likes that I let him use (non-dangerous) power tools. When he was here on Thanksgiving, I gave him some guitar lessons...he played that Axe for 5 hours!

Like his uncle...he's a character:
