nesting


Reading, lounging, nesting.
That's what today was all about here with a cold in the house.
Sniffles and coughs and tired eyes.
I'm expecting we'll be back on our feet tomorrow and I have high hopes that the heavy feeling I had all day today is as far as this Mama's taste of it will go.
I think a day of books (including some of my own childhood faves), a floor covered in pillows, chamomile tea all 'round plus olive leaf and tissue salts is just the ticket for a quick recovery.
Let's hope we ward off the rest of the season's nasties just as swiftly.

Hope you all feel better soon. A day of nesting sounds like just what you need.

Yes, feel better. These colds and stuff are really going around lately. Must be the shifting weather. At least you get to cuddle and read. Sounds wonderful.

sounds just what is needed... nasturtium leaves and flowers are also good for clearing respiratory things, get well soon, Sonya
