It's cold and flu season, and while I'm lucky enough to have "only" a cold, and not that nasty flu, this cold is bad enough and certainly the worst one I ever had. It's been bothering me for about four weeks now, and it had me staying at home for these past three days now.
I don't know how many packs of tissues I used, how many sore throat tablets I've eaten, how many hot lemon drinks I've drunk... It was a lot, and I don't think they were very helpful. But it's the kind of thing you do, because you feel you have to do something to try and get better, don't you.
But there isn't really much you can do, except stay at home and wait till it's over. And make a little journal page when you feel a little better and able to drag yourself off the sofa for a little while. And it helps to at least forget your sore throat and bad cough for a an hour or two, and to lift your spirits. Today, I'm finally feeling a bit better and I'm positive that by Sunday, I'll be over this worst ever cold. Well, it's about time, and especially now, as the snow has come back, and I want to go out and enjoy it!
Linking up to the fabulous Paint Party Friday for the first time in ages.
Have a lovely weekend!
wundervoll! das ist zauberhaft schön!ReplyDelete
Glad you're starting to feel better...and I know the feeling. We were all sick throughout December. Like your journal page though. Glad your cold hasn't affected your arting.ReplyDelete
Absolutely beautiful idea, colors and composition. Very sweet and inspiring. I hope you feel better soon and have a lovely weekend.ReplyDelete
Adoro il tuo modo di rappresentare la realtà con colori da sogno!ReplyDelete
Very sweet pages. Love them. Hope you get better sooner than soon. Take care.ReplyDelete
Just about over 'IT' myself but it has been a long haul. I missed New Year's completely.ReplyDelete
The thing to remember is that it is just a cold and to drink lots and do everything you can think of to make yourself as comfortable as possible.
I am now back at my art even though a hacking cough still stops me every few minutes.
Best wishes on your recovery. Your journal page tells it all ... lovely !
Your art work is always so great, not with standing your terrible cold, I love these pages! Hope you feel better soon, keep warm and cosy and lucky you to have snow! We wait here for a snow fall, maybe this week, would be so lovely to see all covered in white!ReplyDelete
