Locate the elderberry tincture and add a couple droppers to the usual morning blend, swallow down in a bit of water. Squeeze lemon juice into a cup, add a few slices of ginger root and a spoonful of honey and cover with hot water (because there's no way I'm standing around making a decoction that takes 30 minutes total). Back to bed. Still life on the left will be my view for at least a little while today.
It's been years...about three to be precise...since I last had a cold, especially one with a gaggy sore throat (yuck!). Living as a hermit has advantages I suppose! Perhaps I shouldn't have been listening to everyone's current virus stories and thinking to myself, "how interesting I don't seem to get sick..."
Since everything is frozen outside, it's not a terrible day to get extra rest and stay warm indoors.
