Christmas @ Home



























Mr. Husband and I stayed home for Christmas because
of having the flu... 
so we watched the Christmas liturgy online,
Cleo often being with Mr Husband watching ;)
in two parts with a nap in-between,
had special takeout delivery,
got a surprise early morning gift of tea and 
had pots and pots of tea, noodles and Chicken broth,
triskets with the Pate, OJ and more tea...
We opened a few gifts,
my final installment of white gold rimmed plates came 
(for my DV delayed until after Theophany 40th birthday party),
and had a quiet day together...
***
I managed not to cry today, after doing so for the 2 days before,
I was so disappointed at missing Christmas liturgy and tomorrow,
the Church Christmas party...
***
I did not have a fever today though,
and Advil Cold and Sinus is worked wonders...
***
I hope I can get to sleep soon,
and feel OK tomorrow...
We plan on staying in tomorrow as well...
lots of rest and recovery needed...
***
I am thankful for all the love and prayers
that my family and friends have shown us...
***
Christ is born!
Glorify Him!

A partial picture of your dear husband. This is good. Always love seeing Cleo and your lovely home, but would also like to see the both of you.

By the way, I am one of your nonOrthodox readers. Always enjoy reading how other people of faith live their lives.

Blessings and get better.

Christ is born! Glorify Him! I know you prepared so long for this glorious feast day. There is always next year. And, before we know it, Great Lent will arrive and we can celebrate again. Take care dear friend and I hope you both recover soon. Pat xx

Your home looks beautiful and so festive. God was present with you, and you had each other, and therapy for your illness. It was a special Christmas, one to treasure. God speed your healing! XO

Even with the flu you managed to set a lovely table and celebrate the coming of the Christ child. It looks like it was very cold outside. Even so I could sense the inviting warmth of your home, a place obviously filled with love and care. Blessings to you Elizabeth and to your husband. May you both be well very soon.
