AND ANOTHER SEASON COMES TO AN END AT DEER PARK LODGE
A rough night & a tough morning, but must say by late afternoon I was feeling a tad better. Kelly felt well enough this afternoon to slip up to Goderich for a few groceries. Brought me back some extra strength sinus medication & a bottle of of something called, Silver Solutions. No, not for my hair. Apparently it is an anti-biotic mineral supplement. Kelly’s cough is nearly gone & she is feeling better than a couple days ago. We have been quite a pair as we have hobbled, sniffled, & coughed our way around the house. If I’m all right in the morning, we will slip down to see my Uncle Harry & hopefully fly the coop Sunday. That means Saturday will be a whirlwind of a day with all the last minute details to be taken care of. Say, was that a couple butterflies I just felt in my tummy:))
Thanks to folks for their cold remedies. I kinda liked Russ K's solution about eating lots of peanut butter. I immediately went to the kitchen, got my peanut butter jar out, & immersed myself in it right up to my arm pits. That was a great suggestion Russ:)) And Gaelyn, yes, those were Milkweed pods.
This is my second cold in 6 months. Before that I had not had a cold for 20 or more years. Nor the flu. The day following my kidney stone procedure this past summer I came down with a doozer of a cold which I'm sure I picked up in the hospital. The second cold which I am experiencing right now has obviously been picked up from Kelly. Why 2 colds in 6 months after such a long period without one? I have a theory. Long time readers have heard me mention many times about my daily morning soy shakes. Mixed them up & drank em every morning for about 15 years. This past April I decided it was time to make a change to some of my eating habits & I started off by giving up my morning soy shakes. Funny enough, it was about 3 months later when I caught my first cold & 3 months after that, my second cold. Many times in past posts I have mentioned the fact I attributed my cold & flu free years directly to the healthy benefits of my yummy a.m. concoctions. I now think I would probably be very wise to resume my morning 'shake' routine. You can see what that is by clicking my SOUNDS YUKKY - TASTES YUMMY recipe link, or my short VIDEO:))
I’m sure most Snow Birds will know what I mean when I say, it’s kind of an unreal feeling sometimes when you walk out of your house knowing you will not return again for half a year. The change, which has been a long time coming, is suddenly instant. You walk out your door in October with all the pretty Autumn colors in your yard, & return sometime in April, with a completely different looking landscape. I always find it rather surreal just a day or two before departure. Always kind of a strange feeling……………
THIS WAS OUR HOUSE AT CHRISTMAS 2005
Despite a 'Quarantine' sign hanging on the door we did pick up another new Blog Follower over night. LINDA DAWKINS was not deterred by our present health conditions & swung up on board anyway. Welcome aboard Linda, you are a brave soul. Got any cold medicine with ya.........preferably peanut butter.
