Recovery Report

A short Recovery Report from the Futon

Grenville 1214  3 thumb 6
{FUTON: Noun- A place where Grenvilles are often found, sometimes hiding under nankies. Usually in a horizontal position, with eyelids closed.}
Thanks to all for the well wishes. Chicken soup and futon therapy has been working well. And of course Princess hugs.

This is one of those 'hanger oners" of a cold. Your not really feeling bad, but not feeling good. Runny nose sometimes, and sort of achy, and sort of cough, and always ready for a nap. Of course that last one seems to be a chronic condition, possible inherited!!!!!

The goal now is to be well for Christmas, since we are having friends over on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. As always we will put on a Gastronomical Bacchanalia  of taste tempting treats such as a giant AntePasta, single fried oysters (an Eastern Shore staple for Christmas), and Princess Lasagna. But more on that later.

Don't forget, Tomorrow is Winter Solstice. Shortest day of the lunar year. New Years for the Ancients. From here on our days will be getting longer until Sumer Solstice in June. If you have a chance get outside and celebrate the beginning of a New Year, and all of the great possibilities it holds.

Yes chicken soup and lots of naps are the best to stop a cold. I'll take lots of both these coming two weeks :-)

Finally it will turn again, I've waited since midsummer :-)

Have a great day!
Christer.

Happy Holidays.

I had to look twice. I thought that was me. What a nice position to be in in our stage of life!

Beatrice,you commented on my 12/27 blog posting as follows, "Just think how surprised those media folks would be if there was no winter weather. But then they would chatter incessantly about the lack of winter."
Neat comment. It leads me to think you might also find this older posting interesting... http://forii.blogspot.com/2010/02/what-if-nothing-bad-happened.html
