Time outPosted: November 26, 2011
I have been thinking about taking a time-out.
The flu I’ve acquired has been hitting me pretty hard. I’ve gone through my own list of home remedies, remedies that include or are similar to those suggested (thank you for caring enough to make suggestions!), with one exception. Chicken soup. I am considering a time-out from my food commitment so I can have some comfort food that actually works in terms of reducing inflammation and thinning mucus.
I dunno. I’m 60+ days into the commitment and it’s been going well. It could just be another craving of sorts. Certainly it’s a craving for comfort food. A vegetarian vegetable soup may work just as well. I’ll try that and follow up with a wait-and-see.
Ignore me if I start to whine. I am not very good with illness. That probably means I could (should!) be learning a thing or two from it.
I have continued my yoga practice in a slow, easy, restful way. I’m going to give this sequence a try in a little while.
I can’t think of much else to add. In fact, I can’t think at all. My head is too clogged, and the fever (low-grade) and body aches are a big distraction.
We are having another pleasant day here in the Bogs. My outdoor time consisted of sitting on the spiral steps that lead to the deck. All the photos in this post are the leftovers from yesterday’s outing.
Well, that’s about it from the Bogs for today. Thanks for dropping by and putting up with my whining. I’m hoping tomorrow will be a better day.
Sometimes I go about pitying myself, and all the time
I am being carried on great winds across the sky.
