I have been battling some type of upper respiratory bug. My voice started to go Friday night and by Saturday it had progressed to a whispery squeak. Try having a conversation when you are like that, it's better not to even go there. (I couldn't say it the first time, how can I repeat what I just said....my poor sweet husband) Spent most of the weekend on the couch.
I am better today, voice is more of a deep gravel and I am feeling more like myself. I actually headed out today, to look for something that would help a cough, clear a stuffy head, and not be contraindicated for someone that has problems with blood pressure. I wasn't alone, the cold remedy aisle had several sniffly, coughing people milling about. I'm not really a germaphobe but my thoughts did go to how contaminated the boxes and bottles of these medications must be. (I can't be the only one who picks up boxes and bottles and reads the labels) Must remember this for future shopping trips. (Another mental note, wash hands more frequently)
Nothing better when you are sick than some homemade Chicken Noodle Soup, I've eaten a lot of it the last couple of days.
Feeling blessed that we will be celebrating Thanksgiving, with some friends. We were asked to bring a traditional dish, so we will be bringing Cranberry Salad and since I still have a ton of apples from our picking excursion I will probably bring something that requires apples as well.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, enjoy the gathering of family and friends and be mindful of all we have to be thankful for (even in the midst of difficulties there is always much to be thankful for)
