Things to do while I’m not feeling well

#1:  Enjoy a cup of tea.  Really enjoy it.  Watch the steam curl and rise.  Place my hands around the cup and feel the warmth.  Notice the color of the tea.  Breathe in the scent, the warmth, the moisture.  Feel the liquid warmth on my tongue and sliding down my throat and into my stomach, the heat radiating throughout.

Savor the flavor.

A cup of tea and tiger lillies

The sun is shining today and it’s time for me to get back outside to the garden for a little while.  I also have plenty to keep me busy around the house.

It’s time for a little blog break.  A few days ought to do it.  We all need a little vacation every now and then.  Even from blogging.

So, take a break.  Have a cup of tea.  Relax.  Step outside and see what’s blooming.  And I’ll see you in a few days.
