Home with the flu.

Country Living ~ Lauren Ross's home.
Country Living ~ Just wanted to share these two pretty images from Country Living.
Isn't the bedroom beautiful?
Naughty, naughty! A friend sent me this picture.

Sorry to be whiny here, but today I am sick in bed with a sore throat, achy body and runny nose and eyes.
Amazing how that a sore throat can make one feel so debilitated.
I am just going to make a lemon and honey drink and go back to bed again.

I liked this little poem in a book I have ~

We live in little minutes,
Time comes not in a mass,
So keep a smile, it's well worth while,
Whatever comes to pass.

I hope that your week is going well.

Hugs
Carolyn

  5. Hope it passes quickly and you feel better soon! Lay in bed and read and watch TV all day, that's what I'd do!

  6. Hi Dolores,

    Thanks.
    A book in bed or to play on the computer.
    Squirrels seem such inquisitive creatures and I loved seeing them in Hyde Park.
    There were squirrels and rats squabbling over the food that people were feeding them.

  8. Hi Carolyn!

    I am sorry to hear you are unwell. I hope it will not last long.
    Another good way to help getting better is to increase your daily qualtity of vitamins. Get more C one (so more fruits). You will have mroe energy to fight that virus you may have caught (most of the time virus are responsible).

    In the meanwhile, enjoy your book and your computer!!!

    Lots of hugs,
    Sophie.

  19. So sorry to hear you are not feeling well. I'm sure the tea will do you good. Doesn't tea cure everything????
    Thanks so much for your lovely comments. It is so sad that our clothes these days are made in, well in sweat shops in China. It's almost impossible to find anything else.
    Take good care of yourself!!

  20. Thank you Sophie.

    We have stocked up on Vitamin C and Fish oil tablets and feeling a little better today.

    thank you very much Susan and I can say the same about your wonderful posts.

    Oh Lola, I am sure I will be well enough to come on the trip tomorrow.
    Thanks for the invite and can't wait.

    Eliza, Isn't it a pretty bedroom.

    Hi Marsha,

    Yes, the pink slippers are so you and I thought of you when I saw them.
    I hate sore throats too and had glandular fever years ago. I agree with you rest is the only way to get over this.

    Hi Diane,

    It is a lovely little poem isn't it and I am glad that you wrote it in your journal.

    thank you so much Carol.
    Having great friends like you all,
    has made me feel better.

    thank you Cheri, I hope that you are feeling better too, had read you were not well.

    Hi Margaret,

    Sorry you have had the flu this year too. Traveling on the ferry in close proximity to people coughing, it is sometimes hard to escape this winter flu.

    Thank you Lisa and Diana,
    It really helps, with all these get well wishes, to feel better.

    Hugs
    Carolyn

  21. Thank you so much for visiting Carole and your kind words.
    I really enjoy my cup of tea.
    Yes, it is sad that some clothing is made cheaply and shoddily and I sometimes like to make my own clothes,for this reason.

    Hugs

  26. That home is so sweet and pretty.. :)

    And that picture so funny. :) Although, whenever I see or think of a squirrel, I remember my childhood cat, Sleepy Head, who liked to SNACK on squirrels!!!!!

    I hope that you get all better, Carolyn! Try taking echinacea capsules!!!! They work well for me!!!! :)

  27. Hi Charity,

    Thank you for your visit and yes, I do take echinacea sometimes, and must buy some more.
    The bedroom is pretty isn't it.

    Hugs

  28. Carolyn, I know the flu isn't at all fun :( I mean it is that one time when you can lounge in bed and just be, but even reading your favorite magazines isn't as enjoyable as a great nap. I hope you feel better :) I was about to ask if you made the slipcover for the chair and then saw the caption, I am looking for something like that for my parson chairs :) glad I saw it on your blog. I have to look thru your list of blogs because like I commented to Carole of Maynard Greenhouse, you guys already knew of The French Bear...where have I been? And what other amazing blogs am I missing :) Take care and be well...Rose

  29. Hi Rose,

    Thank you so much for your note.
    Yes, sometimes it is nice resting in bed with a good book or magazine and that is what I have been doing and I am feeling much better.
    I am just off to bed now, but I have seen some of those slip covers on someones blog and I will try and think where and get back to you.

    Nighty night.

  31. Hope you are feeling better. It said on my calendar 'the best physicians are Dr. Diet, Dr. Quiet and Dr. Merryman!' It made me smile! Enjoy the rest.

  32. Thank you so much Christina, I am feeling much better today, but it did take a bit of shaking it off.
    The poem is lovely and the little squirrel well, how could you not let him have a nibble of the cake!

    Hi Lynda,

    That is lovely and made me smile ~ thanks for that.
