Thursday Already?

The past week was spent with a chest cold and bronchitis, but not too bad a case as I have gotten in the past.
I  had medicine right away that helped tremendously and so it never took off to become too much.

Still, I felt depleted and too tired to post much.
In the meantime the weather was icy cold and we got some sleety rain and then today sunshine and warmer temperatures.
Physical therapy continues and I love it so much. I will be sorry when it ends. After so long a time it is good to see my muscles getting strong  and to be moving so much better.
My legs and core are getting harder every day.
 I hope I can continue for a long time.

 I have end of  the year cookies to make with the Famous Anonymous Kid to thank the neighbors for their help with the Little on days when weather kept me from walking to the corner to pick her up.   They all volunteered to help and it was just wonderful.I  have  such nice neighbors, so they will receive the Butterballs (Russian tea cakes) and decorated sugar cookies. 
Just have to find some boxes to put them in.
