SB, we arent but we have had some curtains for the 3 years that we have owned our home and thought it was time for a change...also the curtains we have now dont have pull cords, which I really like...sick of opening them all up by hand

So we are having new curtains in the bedroom, dining room, lounge room and the back sliding door, which is three panels of glass.

We are having slimline venetian blinds in the bay window in the kitchen

Working on the books for the Danish Club. I have to enter all the names, addresses, phone numbers, email addies of all the members. I'm doing it in batches, as they pay for stuff. Later, I will enter the rest.

Been fighting off a cold for several days (I always seem to get sick when I have time off of work-and I had all this week off) so I decided to try to sleep in this morning. At 5:30 am I started coughing and woke right up. Knowing I needed rest, I got up and drank some water. Still coughing, so I grabbed a cough drop and propped myself up in bed. Still some coughing, but managed to get some more rest. Now I am having hot tea and thinking about what to eat for breakfast.

I used to put Sunday dinner on just before we headed out to church. And a pot roast was perfect. A very low simmer.

This is not the time of year to not be feeling well. I have some Christmas music playing just for you. I hope you can hear it.

Did you live at my house? That is just what we did when I was growing up. ;)
