Oh ya, it’s starting, that scratcy throat, & sinus thang. I’m hoping to “make it go away” before it comes in strong. I don’t do the neo citron or sinutab or that sort … I’m a hot bath, freshly squeezed oj, and tea girl, occasionally an advil-blue for those really bad sinus headaches, not to forget the oh so important ‘magic-bag’ heat therapy and lots of water.
My medicine: firstly, heat pad, secondly, TEA.
This is my ‘new’ tea cozy. My old one was made by my grandmother (Emma’s name sake), when I first left for university. It was awesome & kept the tea hot & was knit out of scratchy nylon-wool: all white (Nan thought it looked silly, all white, & not with her signature 2 colours, but she shook her head & the best tea cozy I will ever have flew off of her needles in what seemed like a matter of minutes. After 17 years of use & my attempts to fix it up, it finally was time for a new one. I have no idea why it was so difficult to buy a new one. It took me 6 months of bundling the tea pot up in a towel, before I went out & got this one. It does keep it hot, but ya know.
So then onto my day … kids back & forth to school, homework, piano practice ‘encouragement’, 2 year old with the bad runny nose (thanks for sharing!), & onto the chesterfield, feet up, yet again, and Liam ready to snuggle in to feel better himself.
DH promised to bbq the pork chops & watch the kids while I fended off the scratchy throat. That deserves a tea …
Looking forward to tomorrow … hoping to feel right as rain to go out with a friend and her 4 year old for some kind of outing, museum, or gym & play, something, mostly likely involving a stop at Timmies for us.
The housework didn’t get done today, never got to my bible study that’s on tap for discussion this week & there are errands that are still hanging over me, but that’s what another day is for. I started off this post as whining & complaining & now I have come to the conclusion that it’s good to be ‘forced’ to slow down every now & again. Sniff, sniff.
