"Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful." ~ Buddha
I am a bit under the weather today, so I am at home nursing myself through a nasty head cold and trying to stay awake long enough to complete few things that have been on my rapidly spinning plates.
But at least I am not dead. So there is that to be thankful for (thanks, Buddha, for always putting things in perspective for me!)
I am enjoying my mixture of Emy J's Costa Rican mixed with Dunkin Donuts Vanilla Nut coffees and my Bailey's fat free French Vanilla creamer in my new favorite mug...
|Thanks Miss Jennifer Jangles for always being a bright spot in my day!|
There is no way I cannot help but smile when I see this Dr. Seuss tableware sitting with a steaming heap of liquid courage to face the day.
Today I am eating toast with cinnamon and sugar. I also tend toward wanting graham crackers with a light dusting of butter on them in little crumbly rectangle sandwiches. And my mom always made us warm milk with a touch of butter and sugar in it when we were feeling sick. Weird, I know. But that is the only thing that I want right now. That is comfort food to me.
Later I might catch up on episodes of Project Runway All Stars, American Idol and Raising Hope while snuggled under a blanket prepping bezels for 'simple truths' or maybe read some more of the book Goose Girl that I am reading as inspiration for a project that is looming for me...
But more likely than not, I will be working on starting my Challenge of Music accessories or creating the Verse & Vision poetry submission pieces (three are due right now!). Just because I am sick doesn't mean the multi-tasking has to stop. ;-P
I am sure I will be back to my old, slightly less haggard self in no time.
Now where did I leave my mug?
What picks you up when you are under the weather?
What comfort foods do you gravitate to?
Do you slow down when you are feeling sick? or do you see that pile of dishes in the sink and feel compelled to wash, dry and put them away? (yeah, me neither! ;-)
