What I’m Loving Wednesday

Before I get into what I’m loving this Wednesday… have you entered my eos giveaway yet?

You really should.  Tell your friends, your neighbours, your enemies.  eos rocks.  It’s a super-easy contest, all you have to do is leave me a comment telling me you love me.  (or eos.)  Thank you to those of you who have already commented and told me you love me.  You all follow orders so well!! ;)

Contest closes Monday morning – you don’t want to miss out!!  Five winners will be chosen, so the odds are fantastic :)

OK.  So.  As I eluded to yesterday, I feel like a bag of crap.  What started out as a sort-of-sore-throat on Monday night has blown up into a terrible cold/flu thingy, leaving me feeling stuffed up, coughy, and achy all over.

BUT!  Despite the sickness, there’s still a lot to love this Wednesday…

  • My Christmas Tree.  I was allowed to leave work early yesterday (it was so dark and rainy, and because I was feeling tougher as the day went on, they let me go home) – and as I slipped in and out of sleep on my couch, I took the time to admire the twinkling lights on my little tree.  I think it’s beautiful.

  • Grand-Santa from the movie Arthur Christmas.  I bought the movie a few weeks ago, hoping to have Caden & Danica over for a pre-Christmas sleepover to watch it.  Due to the kids’ busy December schedule, it doesn’t look like that’s going to be possible, so I went ahead and watched it last night.  Grand-Santa literally had me laughing out loud.  I loved him!

  • Hearing all the positive feedback about the Christmas House Tour.   I was one of the organizers of our church’s Christmas Home Tour on Monday night, and it was a huge success!   The four homes were decorated so beautifully and we sold more tickets than ever, I believe.  Thank you once again to Randy & Patti, Jack & Anne, Ryan & Lindsay, and Erwin & Kathy for all their hard work and the amazing decorating!!
  • Chicken noodle soupIt soothes my sore throat and warms me up.  I have a container of it for lunch today, and it’s all I can do not to go heat it up right now.

  • SleepThe fact that pretty much all I did yesterday afternoon, evening, and night, was lie on my couch and sleep, has allowed me to get up and be functional today.
  • Blake Shelton and his new Christmas albumI listen to it a lot.  Like, even more than Bieber.

  • Timothy’s White Hot Chocolate K-cupsThey are my favourite.

  • Thinking about the weekend.  OK, yes, I always love thinking ahead to the weekend.  But this one is going to be so jam-packed with Christmas fun, and I just can’t wait.  Tonight I’m going to be preparing my dishes for two potlucks, one Friday night and one Saturday night.  Here’s hoping this cold hits the road by then!!
  • Cheesy Christmas movies on the W network.  So I kind of fell asleep in the middle of one last night, but I love that they have a few on pretty much every night, and despite the cheesiness…they usually feature a handsome dude, so it’s all good with me!

What are you loving this Wednesday??

I hope you feel better ASAP! If it helps at all, I have/had the exact same thing. It stuck around for a little over a week, but now it's on the way out (although me being a snotmonster is no fun, either). I hope it flees your system quickly!

I love watching ABC Family. They have awesome Christmas movies. ;)

Jill, I hope you feel better real soon. Lots of different bugs going around. I continue to hope that I avoid all of it! Your tree is beautiful! You have such a busy social calendar! Enjoy!
