Yep, it's true.
I caught the spring fever wave.
Chills and all.
Despite my best efforts, I caught Lovee's cold.
No kisses or hugs for over a week.
Me on one side of the house, him on the other.
And I still caught it.
Probably doing laundry and delivering meals.
Ah well, a common cold every now and then is par for the course.
I am in bed trying to get well quick quick quick...
Taking good care too.
(not really, I find myself escaping my bed, only to be brought back by a hacking cough)
Thank goodness for the pink roses from the garden.
Why must one get sick in the full bloom of spring, I ask?
My mom says oodles of folks she knows caught it too.
You know what is really silly?
I am one of those people that wipes off the handles on grocery store carts, and carries wipes in her purse. And washes her hands the second she walks in the door. And disinfects everything including the steering wheel.
Goes to show, pointless :)
I think maybe I'll live on the edge now.
What is your take on germs?
I never use that antibacterial pump stuff only because I don't like how it feels on my hands.
But I do use antibacterial wipes and such.
Should I keep doing it, or is it fruitless?
(I have heard some folks think being exposed to germs builds your immunities?)
I am trying to do some of this.
I hope you are still doodling?
I am thinking up little faces and things I want to paint and sculpt when I feel better.
There are baskets of strawberries coming in from the garden, so I want to make this, which I saw in the May 2013 issue of Country Living...
Rustic Strawberry Galette.
Hack hack hack.
Thank Goodness for mint tea.
I fill a big pot with water, about 12 cups or more.
Bring it to a boil, turn it off.
Toss in 2 cups of fresh mint leaves (no stems), steep for 10 minutes, strain, put in a tiny bit of honey or sugar, done.
They say it's good for a cough?
Okay well, I gotta run.
If you need me, Medusa will be over here, kleenex covered and sneezing.
Oh oh oh....
Did you happen to see the moon last night?
It was spectacular coming over the mountain.
Darn cold, I want to play!!
Last night would have been a perfect evening for sleeping under the stars.
I am listening to Stevie Nicks on repeat while looking out the window, watching the trees burst with new leaves.
Any old tricks up your sleeve for getting well quick?
ps: Matty is feeling okay, sleeping on a little rug by my bed, not budging. Miles wants to be on my lap all day, so Lovee is in charge of keeping him entertained when he can, although he has been at work long days this week. You should hear them wrestling and playing tug of war :)
