Ick. I think I'm sick.

 I remember reading a little blurb about actor John Gielgud once in the Readers Digest.  It was talking about him being in a very popular play and was invited to an after hours party in his honor. He apparently thought he needed rest, or was coming down with something and declined the invite..and sent along a little note saying;

   "Gielgud...doesn't feel good."


  And I don't feel good today. My throat (isn't really sore) feels swollen and not right. MY stomach hurts a little.  I have a tiny cough. And I am basically exhausted. I got up at 8:30 this morning and then lay down for a nap at 11:30 and slept until 2.  I am just NOT right.  sigh.... I am taking Vitamin C and also echinacea with C...and--oooooo...I just found the zinc lozenges-I knew I had some somewhere.

  I should be in bed now instead of blathering away about nothing.


  Bella woke up feeling much better--whatever was wrong last night must have some simple, passing thing. Thank goodness. Everyone but me is now in bed and asleep. And I should be too. I told myself I would be in bed at a decent time tonight and now it's already after midnight. Damn. I get so lost reading blogs...


  So, off to bed I go. It's a chilly 27 degrees outside and warmer in here. I have my flannel jammies on and really there is nothing stopping me from heading in to the other room. I'll snuggle into those warm sheets and big quilt and sleep the sleep of the innocent.

I'm glad Bella is feeling better, but sorry you are feeling worse. I hope all the vit C and zinc helps stave off whatever it is. With this odd weather there are so many people catching things. Stay warm and safe and sleep when you can. :)

Take care Annie and get plenty of sleep. I wish I could send you chicken soup or fresh oranges from the Klein Olifants (Little Elephant) River, the sweetest and juiciest oranges I have ever tasted.

You are doing all the right things, Annie. You just need a little time to get well. I hate being sick, too. But you do need your rest. I get all wrapped up in reading blogs, too.

Get to feeling better Annie! Have Bella run the house now that she is feeling better. ;-)

Now go back to bed and sleep the day away.

I hope you are feeling better today.
