I wondered if the coughing and bronchitis I had on Christmas night could have been from being near a trigger for my sensitivity to chemicals, which can show up days after an exposure, but it was obvious by the next morning that I had contracted the same virus Gay and Stu had weeks earlier. That shows how contagious this bug is.
I used the opportunity to advocate for clean air on my blog because that is what I do. Even now, some of my friends give me scented products as gifts. So, I continue to try to educate the public on the dangers of these chemicals.
I apologize to my wonderful niece, Lee. I never meant to infer that her house or anything in her house made me sick. She is diligent, as is Gay, to help me stay well when I visit. I am very blessed to have family that cares so much.
I love that Lee uses her mother's china for our Christmas dinner. It is nice to have my sister's dishes on the table even though June is gone from us now. I appreciate that Lee has taken on the role of having the family at her house and making sure we have a great time. For many years I enjoyed having family at my house for holidays, but the house I am in now is way too small.

I look forward to getting over this illness soon, but meantime, I have the energy to do a few easy tasks here in my house before I take a nap. I get impatient when I don't feel up to doing all the things on my growing "to-do list." But patience I must have. Then my perseverance will kick in.
My readers, I hope you are well and that your weather is good - not too hot and not too cold. We might get a little snow this weekend, I think. It won't bother me as Lexie and I will be snug as a bug in a rug in our little place in the mountains.
