Cedar Fever and the Last of the Christmas Posts

I officially have Cedar Fever -- I feel like I have the flu without the fever -- my eyes look horrible, my ears are hurting and my chest feels like I am in the beginning stages of bronchitis.  It is worse because I failed to shampoo my hair last night after being out in the wind yesterday so everything that was blowing around stuck in my hair and I should have washed it before going to bed.  Now I have to change pillow cases and wash my hair and take benadryl.  Yuck.

I am really just a little crazy sometimes.  I read blogs and love the photos on them so I always want to add a photo to mine.  The only problem with that is I forget to take them.  The same was true this Christmas.  I made four ornaments and wanted to show them here but, alas, no pics.  My son in law was kind enough to send me photos of the one I made for Beanie and here it is.

I can't figure out how to rotate the bottom one.  I made two more for Kathryn and Nathan and one for Joy.  If I can pics from them I will edit.

I also made Kathryn a purse but, again, failed to take a photo of that either.  Note to self -- well, you get it.

It's been cold here -20C and hubby feel like we have flu..our eyes are itchy, noses running,insides of our noses are burning and we feel so tired. Talked to a friend (or two) today, and they feel the same. Something is in the air and we don't know what.

I feel the same way and the thing that is bothering me the most is the chest discomfort -- very bronchitis like. I don't even want to go out and get the mail and it is such a shame because we are having fantastic weather but I can't get out and do anything. I hope you feel better very soon -- this is miserable.

Sorry about the Cedar Fever. I know how that is -- and we're thinking of moving to a place that is almost entirely covered with the stuff. Smart, huh?

I will definitely send you some photos of the ornament (meant to do it days ago). We'll be taking all the decorations down tomorrow and I'll take some shots then.

the top one is cute, you're a cross stitcher as well I see. Very pretty. Hope you're feeling better soon,

Joy -- thanks, I appreciate it. I just can't seem to get the hang of taking photos of thing I make.

Gill -- the bottom one is just the back of the top one. Yes, I have been cross stitching forever but I am still not very fast with it. I sort of got away from it as I have gotten older and as we have put dimmer light in the house (we really have, it isn't just me) but I bought a nifty magnifying lamp and it is wonderful so it makes me want to stitch again. Now, if I could just get the mindset of a photographer!!
