I am about to get tired of this being sick ordeal.
I have been relying on store bought meds until today.
I am still eating the acetaminophen and guiafenisen sp?
with very little relief.
I have been wanting cold fluids on my sore throat.
So today I have resorted to the web for homemade
cold and flu remedies. Watch out! I watched The Good Witch and The Good Witches garden on Hallmark last night!! Too cute!
Yes I am a nurse but this sorta stuff always is supposed to happen to others
I have started a witches cauldron of Vicks Vapo Rub
in my big yellow pressure cooker pot simmering on the stove.
I stood over it for a while, now I go by and take a deep breathe occasionally.
I have steeped Herbs de Provence in boiling water............yucky!!
It has lavender, garlic, lemon peel, and sea salt that I know of. I added rosemary to this brew.
We were fighting over sniffing on this stuff for a while!!!!
I became very aware of the bases of my lungs!!!!!!!! woowoooo!!!!
That's a really good feeling!
I also felt the outer layer of my brain at one time because I took such a good sniff!
Talk about a head rush.
I have sipped on hot tea all day too.
I have got to whip this stuff before it whips me.
I have a quilt to finish.
Not too much done in that dept yet today, I have done some more cutting and I have several blocks quilted.
I need to get me an assembly line of sorts started in order to whip these blocks out.
I hate to say it but this flu has stepped in and hindered my plans for that happening yet.
I am armed and ready though.
I will be gargling with the concoction that I have brewed up.
We may never have to worry about being kissed again due to bad breath but it will all be worth it to get rid of the cooties around here.
I also can't wait for a warm dry day to be able to open the windows and fumigate the home.
I always have to do that after we have been sick.
Out with the old stagnant air and in with the fresh new air!
What sort of advise do you guys have for us?
Please don't tell me to use this Onion Syrup!!
Please stay well!!
