Trying to feel better with coffee on Tea Tuesday

What I thought was a nothing kind of "funk" has now turned into a huge coughing, sneezing, wheezing, achy-all-over, headache that defies Ibuprofen, and queezy tummy weekend that has now extended to mid-week.  Add to that the fact it's dark and cold outside, and you see why I'm not drinking tea today.


Coffee (laced with half and half) is the only thing that will settle my tummy, reduce my headache, help with my aches, and possibly get me going.  As for the coughing and sneezing, that's another story.  In fact, Bleubeard is suffering from sneezes and coughs, too.  Seems we both have what ever "it" is.

As you can see, I still haven't dealt with all those books and magazines Kathy gave me last week.  They are still sitting on my kitchen table, waiting for me to deal with them.  I thought I could at least peruse one of the books while enjoying a hot cup of coffee.  By the way, that is my napkin, something I always require for my lap when I'm either eating or drinking, not a nose blower, next to the book.

I hope each of you has an awesome tea Tuesday, because as soon as I finish this coffee, I'll probably be sleeping (or snuggling with Bleubeard) when you read this.  But, please, please feel free to join us, like some of you did last week.

Sorry to hear you are not feeling well--I hope "it" goes away quickly! With the weather changing back and forth from warm to cold, I have almost a constant headache & coughing so I sympathize!

Dianne said...

Hope you and Bleubeard shake the creeping crud quickly. It's tough to find the energy to do anything, let alone be creative, when you don't feel well. Thanks for the positive feedback on my collages - now that I'm working full time, I just don't have time to comment on all the blogs like I used to. I still read you all the time, just might not comment as often. Glad you're finding a minute here and there to read mine as well. Get better quick!

I hope you are feeling better soon - I had something like that last week - your magazines look like just the ticket to slow down - that and the hot liquid of course :)
