Well, I should be painting. I tell myself this. I want to be painting. But...
I have such a lousy, rotten cold that I just want to lie on the sofa and whine whine whine.

Now, Smudge says when he feels bad, he just stops to smell the roses - and maybe eat a few, too.

Or lie in the sun and let the warmth make you feel good all over.

Or eat something - lots of your favorite comfort foods!

Sounds like fairly good advice. So catch me in a few days when I'll be good as new.

Boo. Sorry you're not better. Drink lots of liquids and try some chickennoodle soup.

Oh, poor you! Seriously, it's not nice to be sick at any time, but especially not in summer.
Hope you get better really soon!
Maybe Smudge has a few good ideas, as you say: it's all about being comfortable and comfort food. Good advice for any time.

Hope you feel better quickly, Rhonda!

Yes, I'm just such a pitiful thing. I rarely get colds but when I do they really lay me low. Lots of sleeping and while awake, wondering where the wonder drugs are that will kick this out of me.

Sheesh, first your back, now a cold! Poor you! Hope you get back to good really soon Rhonda.


ps - it stinks to feel "puny", eh? (Still can't get used to that word in that context! ROTFLOL!)

RHCarpenter said...

Yeah, Deb, I hear ya! I definitely was feeling puny! haha I know that word cracks you up - but you Canadians have a few that make me smile, too :)
I am just now on the mend and feeling like drawing between catching up with laundry and other things.
