Cold Morning!!

Temps down in the 20's last night. Big frost and some icy patches on the roads.  Yep! It's winter!
December already!!  Christmas is creeping up on me and I've realized I need to buy Christmas cards. 
So, got that on my to do list. 

I have the first cold (and praying the last!) of the season.  Why does a cold make you feel so bad?  I'm glad I bought those extra boxes of tissue a couple weeks ago.  Hot tea, neti pot, warm salt water gargle, tylenol/sinus meds are my companions right now.  Starbucks has their Tazo Joy tea out now.  I love it!  I didnt' know Tazo was a division of Starbucks now.  Interesting.  Nothing like a good cuppa hot tea.

Monday before our daughter and sil left to go back to TN, we went to the Grove Park Inn to see the Gingerbread House Competition.  To be honest, I'm a bit dissapointed.  This has gotten way beyond 'gingerbread house's'. 
I love exploring Grove Park Inn.  It is beautifully decorated for the season. 

Seems the 'health care reform' will be affecting us next yr.  Nothing set in stone yet but if it goes as it stands now with my husband's employer, we won't be able to afford it.


Be anxious for nothing,
but in everything
by prayer and supplication
 with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known to God.

Oh, Patty- I haven't been to the Grove Park in years! I remember how beautiful it was, though...
Sounds like Old Man Winter has visited your side of the mountain... it's colder than gee-whiz here right now, and they're saying we could see some snow this weekend. (I'm sure you all will!)
Sorry to hear about the health care reform affecting you... it really makes me wonder sometimes what is going on!
Hope you're staying warm, my friend!

Yes I think you're right-Old Man Winter has for sure arrived in western NC : )

When we were first married Miss Cindy and her beau took us to Grove Park for Sunday Brunch at Christmas-wow was it beautiful and the food was amazing too!!!
