Good 30º dark and very cloudy morning.
Yesterday... and today should be the same....
Well, I guess I came down with a DOOZY of a cold. Darn! Sneezing my head off every few minutes, 'tuffy and runny dose', coughing coughing. ICK. Wednesday night I was miserable. I only fixed hot chicken broth for dinner. That right there tells you I was sick! Yesterday I heated some Progresso Lite Chicken Noodle (Doodle!) soup for breakfast. Sat in my chair, covered with my snuggy down comforter, and watched movies! On Zicam, Vitamin C, hot tea with lemon. I HATE BEING SICK!!! Hope this is over soon. This morning still runny nose, still sneezing. BUT I think I am feeling a tad better. Staying in. Not getting near anyone. Nothing on the agenda this week or next, so hopefully I'll be back to normal. (HA HA HA... Normal?)
Yesterday this guy was out parading all by himself... not even any on-lookers!
Today is a special birthday... my dear neighbor Cindy. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CINDY!!!! I am so lucky to have such GREAT neighbors!

National Goof Off Day
Then....... there is a lot of discrepancy if it's Coc Au Vin Day or Bavarian Crepes Day or Water Day.
I suppose you could have crepes for lunch and make coc au vin for dinner all the while drinking lots of water! But then, that isn't really goofing off, is it?
