My beverage of choice has been lots of ginger and honey with tea or hot water. The one good thing is that I have been exploring the many varieties of honeys. The Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey above is fantastic. Though these specialty honeys are way more expensive than the standard Clover, Orange Blossom or Honey Bear Bottle honeys from the supermarket, it's nice to treat yourself when you are feeling like crap.
I have been drinking my delicious concoctions with the new mug that my sister got me for Christmas. See that Canon camera lens in the background? It's actually a mug! It even has a lens cap to keep your beverage hot. I love it. You can get a Canon or Nikon one from HERE.
Another present from my sister is the Sundara Holiday Gift Set. 3 skeins of Aran Silky Merino in the purple family. It makes me happy just to see the beautiful colors sitting on my desk. I can't help but pet it every time I walk by.
These 3 books arrived on my doorstep this morning. I can't wait to look through them. They are from my awesome friend, Jennifer, who also happens to be a top notch book editor. Boy, did these cheer me up this morning. Melody came down with a fever 3 days ago and has been extremely sick. We finally got rid of her fever and then the coughing and congestion started. She has been very sensitive and needy because she feels horrible. I haven't had much sleep due to caring for her at night because she wakes up crying from the coughing and congested sinuses. And when I do get to sleep, I cough all night. DH couldn't be immune to all of this forever and he finally complained of a sore throat the other night. Luckily, he seems to be recovering faster than any of us. Ever since I was a child, I have always had a weak immune system. So it's not surprising that I was the first one to get sick and probably will be the last one to recover.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, germ free of course.
