I am now joining nearly all the loved ones around me in a good ol' Spring cold.
Yes, complete with a dreadful runny nose, sinus pressure, and a persistent cough.
Little W caught his Spring cold last Sunday and ran a strong fever for a night.
He was burning up next to me like a little oven!
In lieu of antibiotics or OTC medication, we used cold compresses, eucalyptus oil in a steamy shower, and many, many nursing sessions. A spoon full of honey before bedtime calmed his cough considerably.
This beautiful illustration in a book I am sure many of you love sums it all up well!
Now that W and Daddy are on the mend, it is my turn!
I purchased this wreath at a Holiday Bazaar last year..it is a "sick room" wreath made from horehound and other dried herbs. It's going in my simmer pot this afternoon.
After W was feeling better, we played outside and took long walks to marvel at the budding Springtime...
The world is waking up!
..wishing you all good and strong health!
