Unwelcome House Guest

Hi Friends,
 
Well, I guess it's my turn for a visit from the Cold/Flu Bug.
 
 Woke up with it's arrival on Thursday and it's been a battle ever since.
 
You know the visitor~~
 
The one who arrives and brings,
 
 ~chills~
 
~Fever~
 
~Aches~
 
~Headache~
 
~Cough~

~Extreme Sore Throat~
 
Not a fun visitor to have around the house.
 
Time to doctor up,

 
 
 
Put the kettle on for hot tea,
Make a pot of chicken soup,
And cozy up!
 
 This one is a dozy!
 
I have not had a cold visitor for maybe 10 years like this.
 
  I know many of you had this house guest too.
 
Not good, they say, this one likes to linger!!
 
See you when I can hold my head up again.
 
Have a wonderful weekend.
 
Stay well.
 
Hugs,
 
Celestina Marie
 
p.s. sorry for the blurry pics, not too steady!

Hi Celeste, so sorry you are sick. It is a rough winter for getting sick this year, seems it is happening to everyone. I wish you a speedy recovery.

Ginny said...

Oh Celeste, You are right to make chicken soup, drink lots of hot tea, and honey is good for the throat, and rest, rest, rest,! Will say a prayer for quick recovery. HUGS

Elisabet said...

Oh poor you! Dh and I both got flu shots this year so I think that has helped us a lot. However, I must admit to a scratchy throat the last couple of days...I'm keeping my fingers crossed! I can't believe you actually made chicken soup while being sick! Much more energy than I would be able to muster! Get lots of rest and stay hydrated, oh and of course the chicken soup!!! I hope you feel much better real soon.
Hugs from one of your new friends courtesy GYB party!

Lorena Wheeler said...

Hey sweetie,
So sorry to hear you have the crud. My daughter got the flu with a pretty high fever last week and I felt on the verge. I dont think mine was as bad because this year for the past few weeks i have been drinking, daily tea of ground cinammon and honey. It seems to lessen the symptoms for me. Hope you feel better soon!
Hus, Lorena
