rest, keep warm, drink plenty of liquids....


I woke up yesterday morning feeling a quart low. Headache, body aches, and congestion. I made the bed, started some laundry while I still had the energy to do it....and then rested the remaining part of the day.

Today I have done the same thing...feeling energized this morning enough to run to Target for laundry items and the such...and as soon as I came home, the energy decreased. i am using some mullein leaf extract for head and chest congestion along with Zicam. I did lie down for a quick nap this afternoon as well. With the temperatures cooler, it was a delight to cover up with the pretty pink quilt at the foot of the bed.

Drinking lots of fluids and just resting is all that can be done. Folding clothes and putting them away in between times of rest. In spite of feeling puny....thank the Lord I am able to get a few things done....so grateful for this!

I have my pumpkin spice candle lit...and what I can smell of it....is just yummy! I arranged some red silk geraniums (I purchased from my sister's Home Interior's business) inside my vintage metal milk can along with the usual sunflowers, in the garden window....it looks beautiful and very autumnal. I have alot more to do adding touches here and there, but it will have to wait till I am fully up and running again.

I pray you and your house are well and enjoying the winding down of our summer days!

Blessings to you...

Mindy, how are you doing now? We've had the winter coughs and colds doing the rounds too here but with spring on it's way we're hoping things get a little better. Hope you're enjoying autumn in your corner of the world :-)
