Assorted Happy Things: Sick Edition

5/03/2012

 Many, Many cups of tea.

 A bowl of tangerines. It will need refilling tomorrow.

A stack of books. And two watchful owls.

 Soothing face cream, orange scented candle, lavender oil and lip gloss.

Lavender and coconut milk bath. Found via Delighted Momma.


“I cannot go to school today,”
Said little Peggy Ann McKay.
I have the measles and the mumps,
A gash, a rash and purple bumps.
My mouth is wet, my throat is dry,
I’m going blind in my right eye.
My tonsils are as big as rocks,
I’ve counted sixteen chicken pox.
And there’s one more—that’s seventeen,
And don’t you think my face looks green?
My leg is cut, my eyes are blue—
It might be instamatic flu..." - Shell Silverstein

The flu has found me. What helps cure your sickness blues? I'd love to hear.

P.S. Don't forget to enter our current giveaway for a gorgeous Mala Bead necklace!

OMG!! I hate being sick!! This post is soo cute, I love Shell Silverstein. I am just like you, clementines galore, warm baths. I found these drops in the sick aisle that help to relieve cold symptoms faster if you suck on them within the first 24 hours. I like them and have them on hand when ill. Cant remember what they are called, but you should get some. Feel better, big hugs your way. xo

Oh no! I'm so sorry I hope you feel better soon, that's awful. I've had a week of the worst cold, the no sleeping because you can't stop coughing even though you're drugged on cough syrup and vapo rub. Luckily I'm on the road to recovery, I hope you will be soon too! Stick to those tangerines :)

Sorry to hear you're sick! That's the worst. The best home remedy I do is to take a bunch of lemons, cut them in half and smush out the insides into a big pot of boiling water, throw the peel in there too, and then I drink the hot lemonade with loads of honey in it throughout the day. A super duper shot of vitamin C. Hope you feel better soon!

Feel better! Tea and a little pampering is in order!

Marie said...

Get well soon! I've tried a tea that is naturally beneficial. Water, ginger, honey and lemon...bring it to a boil then set aside till it's cool enough to sip on. :)

Boo...hope you feel better soon! I go crazy with the vitamin C to flush the flu out. I hit the bed, drink lots of tea, and pop vitamin C all day long!

Alex said...

Oh man ladyfriend feel better ASAP! And I usually indulge in some good books and lots and lots of OJ. Oh, and Vaseline for my nose when I rub it too much.
