05:15 pm - Day #7, 30 Days of Appreciation: nursing myself through a cold/allergy thing
This evening I have a ticket for an event, but that ticket will be languishing unused, because I have a headache, fever, sore throat, and body aches.

But that gives me a chance to appreciate the following:
*ibuprofen.
*my new tea, which is Piper's Tea Red Grey, a rooibos and bergamot blend which is light and lovely. If I could breathe properly, I suspect it would also smell wonderful. (By the way, unsolicited and whole-hearted recommendation for Piper's Tea for anyone who lives in the US. Also, they just lowered their prices!)
*closing my eyes and listening to the passing rain
*contemplating a watch of a DVD. Something soothing, perhaps, like Random Harvest or the first half of To Catch a Thief or all of Indiscreet.

What do you do to treat yourself when you're not feeling well?

May you appreciate the middle of your week, no matter what you're doing.

Good for you for staying home! Sometimes that's just the better part of valor.

Red Earl Grey sounds tasty, I shall have to look for it!

The Red Grey is really light and nice. I suspect it'd be excellent iced tea, too!

Cheers for your day.

Hope you feel much better soon!

I drink lots of everything (mostly without alcohol, but sometimes....) and take Mucofen. And I lie around and watch TV (Gaslight is nice for the aching head) and read things that don't require much of a brain, but mostly I sleep. Even half a degree of fever knocks me out.


Piper's sounds wonderful! I also like Adagio.

I went deep into ibuprofen and reading things that didn't require a brain last night. :)

I do like Adagio, but Piper's is a cool small business out of Kentucky, focused on organic ingredients when possible, and I like to support them.

Cheers for your day.

It wasn't critical, no, although I slightly regret missing it.

Cheers for your day!

Get well soon, mate.

It sounds like the bug I've got, so extra sympathy.

It was just allergies presenting as a cold-flu, it seems. We persevere.

I offer you virtual medicine and tea and hugs!
