Under the weather

It's that time of year again.
I woke up yesterday with a raging sore throat. Ugh.

Luckily, with lots of sleep, a hearty decongestant, juice, soup, and a mug of steaming hot water with lemon and honey (does wonders for sore throats), I think I'm turning a corner.

P.S.  My shag fleece pillow case was featured in a couple of etsy treasuries here and here. Does a heart good.
