Damn. I think I have the sickness. Earache and sore throat today. I do not have time to be ill. This little illness seems to have been hiding in the background and attempting to rear its ugly head for a few weeks now, but has not been much of a problem Today, it is most annoying. I’m cold. Half an hour later, I’m roasting to death. I had Mrs. Grass’s Chickeny Noodle Soup for lunch (without the noodles, since I can’t have pasta), and I felt better for a bit but now the painful throat is getting to me again. So, I’ve just given up, have parked myself on the couch with the computer and a small glass of blackberry brandy. It certainly feels good on my throat, and I have a feeling I’ll be fast asleep in no time. I hope when I wake up, I feel all better. I have quilting, cleaning, laundry, and organizing to do, so I don’t have time for this. Got my comfy quilt and will give in for a few hours.
