I Will DO This! Pep Talk! :)

Last year's white lights with some color.  This year I went back to all white again, although I may put colored around the door ...or not.  I like the color coming through the glass but I like the traditional look of white with the wreaths and red bows.  And  they can stay up all winter because I still like turning them on even after Christmas sometimes.  :)

A stupid cold and I are wrastling with each other over which one of us is going down first.  And boy oh boy am I glad I got the white lights on all the bushes outside before the snow.  Right now I am trying to get myself to go out into the frigid cold to wash the glass panes on each side of the front door and then string up the last set of lights around it.  Then to put bows on the fresh balsam wreaths and hang on the doors and place wreaths over each post on the split rail fence and then just a few other outdoor details.  Oh right ...I want to also create a fresh pine ...something for a pot near one door and in the tub out back.  It's also supposed to be 50 on Monday.  But ...once I get an idea ...

The fresh pine planters can wait.  But The lights and wreaths must get done.  Normally this would all be done but you know that feeling you get when you are fighting something and you feel like you're cold but you really aren't ...and dragging?  Well the idea of going out in the cold seems like torture right now.  B-U-T I will bundle really well and wear red lipstick.  Yes red lipstick contrasting the pasty - but festive.  :)

Son, Chris gave me some kind of fizzy 1000 MG fizz vitamin C mixture to drink this morning.  I've been drinking herbal aloe force juice, acai juice, green tea with acai and other antioxidants, took a royal jelly multivitamin, 5000 mg of vitamin D an several of heaping teaspoons of Healing Manuka honey.  I am staggering these things throughout the day/evening.  Oh and my green synergy drink.

And last but not least, I've also been thanking God for healing me.

Like I said - I am fighting this!

I'll have a big grapefruit later or in parts.  No appetite.  I hope that stays that way because I've been losing weight again and I tend to gain weight when I am sick.  I don't know why but I know I eat to feel better.

So a cold is no big deal except I have so much to do and want to get done and all I really want to do is just sleep, read or watch movies ...or blog.

Oh and the doctor still gave me a flu shot yesterday and so maybe that is affecting me somewhat too.

It could be worse.  At least I don't have to be working in a packed ER during a hellacious and crazy, busy shift with no breaks.  I remember an ER doctor once saying that it's pretty bad when you're more sick than the patients coming in.  True.

Anyway ...the upside to this is that I am most likely getting this out of the way and so I will be healthy for Christmas!

Why does the Christmas season have to fly by so quickly?  I guess because it is my favorite time of the year and we're all so busy too.  Time flies when you're having fun.  :)

Okay ...pep talk over.

Now ...a SeaSpray's gotta do what a SeaSpray's gotta do.  Where's that lipstick.  :)
