Nasty viral illness, I banish you from our home.
Runny-nose causing, blocked sinus sniffling, dizzy unsteadiness, begone.
Summer bugs seem so much more unkind than winter ones.
Somehow I mind less when I can curl up under layers of comforters with cooling mugs of herbal tea.
When the sun is out, the garden needs weeding, and the blueberries are ripe for the picking
it just doesn't feel right to be lying on the couch. Also,
the problem is that life doesn't ever seem to slow down enough to take a healing time-out...
So I am compromising with quiet evenings sitting on the couch with my Minous while they watch library movies. Last night was a great one: Stranger than Fiction. Tonight: Le Valet.
