'tis the season
Aches and pains.
Chilled to the bone.
A persistent fever,
and an uncomfortable tummy,
It seems cold and flu season has found me.
I am taking an extended long weekend against my will.
I'll be back when I am off the couch, out of pajama pants, running laps around the river valley and back to my normal self.
In the mean time--stew, carbonated beverages, funny shows, tea, toast and honey, and good company are keeping my spirits up.
