Recovery from this flu bug is really slow going. I have a bad cough when I sleep and wake up feeling wretched. But thank goodness that I do not have to be at a job or have any other kind of binding commitment. And I have my hubby and pets to keep me company while I am getting better. I decided not to go to mass today because I always feel worse at night, and I attend the Sunday night mass. I don’t want to have a coughing fit and spew my germs everywhere. I will go to the doctor next week if there is no more big improvement in this flu bug.

Today is the first Sunday of Advent! I love the candles and the changes in liturgical dress and the whole thing leading up to the birth of Christ!
