A forced whisper

I’ve been wearing the same pair of wool socks, without interruption, for the entire year; the same pair of jammies – 2/3rds of the year.  I trust that 2012 will include plenty of articulate discussion but this I take on faith alone; I’ve been without my voice since last year.  It’s a whopper of a cold that’s battered me into a (unwashed) (phlegm-y) (Marge-Simpson-sounding) sorry pile of blah.  I’m at all times within arm’s reach of Osha Root tincture, to keep the sinuses from exploding.  A while ago, I rallied and managed to haul in a pile of firewood; Cold knows no reprieve for the sick.

The Boy and I are snuggled up by that hard-won fire, sipping tea, listening to the radio.  I plan to take out my knitting and bunker down for a while, whispering my way through another day.  I may or may not change my socks and jammies.  Probably not.

    Lots of water, too, mama. Feel better soon & take the rest and resist clean jammies until you are safely on the other side~xoxo

    Oh honey, so sorry that you are feeling this badly but it sounds like you are doing the right things. I agree with the above, keep resting in those cozy p.j.s and it will pass soon. Do you have elderberry tincture too? Add it if you do but mostly rest, hydration and time should do. Love to you!

    I hope you feel better soon! But I will say a good hot shower helps wash away the germs and unstuff the sinus. I got you on my prayer list.
