Is there anything sweeter than a hug from a precious one? Especially when you are feeling sick or maybe just plain ole weary? The photo shows a hug of the feet by Stormy, our sweet kitten. (Please excuse the unmade bed and dirty socks!)
This is day 5 for me trying to get rid of this nasty virus I've picked up. Went to the doctor this morning and got a shot and some medicine. I've had such a sore throat and non-stop coughing, some chills and of course the ever-present achiness and general miserable feeling that accompanies such ailments. The nurse told me that this particular ailment is going around and is harder to get rid of than usual.
I'm really in a dilemma because one of my dear friends is supposed to be here from Oregon this Thursday on her way to see relatives north of here. We been friends since school days and I really want to see her, but hate for her to walk into this house of germs! We were planning on her spending the night Thursday. Of course, Thursday is a few days away, but the worst thing is that I haven't felt like sprucing up the house!
My daughter mixed up a concoction that she read about on the web last night. I think she thought I was about to cough myself silly. Anyway, the stuff had apple cider vinegar, honey, ginger and cayenne pepper in it! It worked for maybe 10-15 minutes. I told her that the reason it worked for that time is because it paralyzes your throat and you can't cough! I did appreciate her trying to help, tho.
Well, 'nuf said about that. Just wanted to check in and share the sweet photo of Stormy. Hopefully, things will get back to normal here soon.
I hope your week is off to a great start!
Until next time...
