Nursing a Cold

This is me this weekend. I thought I had avoided this nasty flu that's all over the news. But it's been through all my co-workers and lots of kids at the daycare, so I shouldn't be surprised that I've picked something up. I'm at home, with a cold that's not YET the flu, so I'm stocking up on Zicam and green smoothies in the hope that I can beat it before it really starts. Wishful thinking? I don't know, but my bigger concern is that both girls seem to have a touch of it too. Send positive healthy thoughts our way please!

Downton Abbey

Just started Season Three on PBS. If you are not yet into this show - rent it and catch up! It is one of only two that Jake and I sit and enjoy together (he and I have different interests, and aren't watching much TV these days anyway). You will love it! While it is a period drama, it's not serious and heavy - instead it has been called a "period-soap-opera". I never thought Jake would sit and watch something like this, and he's gripped. (*Note: it is one of those shows that you have to see right from Episode One, though, or you'll never keep up with who is who). Two thumbs up for something worth watching these days!

Room by Emma Donoghue

I can't remember the last time I finished a book in two weeks. COULD.NOT.PUT.THIS.DOWN.

But here's what I did to ring in the New Year. A new do! What do you think?
