Thursday in October

I've got a cold. Daughter brought it into the house and now it has settled in my pocket. I have been blasting it with fresh garlic (crushed and mixed into a small V8 juice...I know some of you are cringing, but it's quite nice actually:), lots of Bengal Spice tea, turkey soup , vitamin C, and COLD FX. ColdFX really does work to shorten the duration and drudge of a cold but you have to take it at the very first sign of symptoms. I always have it on hand now. This cold is on it's way out, and was not too bad as far as colds go, but today will be another quiet day of not getting much done because I 'm still not completely "up to snuff".

This event looks like it would be fun. A literary luncheon:)

Okie dokey, bye for now:)

Hi Shelagh, thanks for coming over to Oasis and leaving a comment. I've been reading your info and posts and noticed we have some things in common. My grandma is named Alice, too, and her family migrated from Paris to Canada and ended up in the US. I wrote a bit about her a couple of posts ago. I'm with you about going to writer's talks...I just feel like getting out some paper and a pen. I hope your cold gets better soon. Take care...and it's so nice to meet you.

Snuggle up. There was ice on the stairs today and my front tyre was flat. So now it's patched and it's a glorious day and I had an excuse for being late at the office.

hope you feel better soon ... cold fx rocks my world and i was recently turned on to crushed garlic, fresh squeezed lemon juice, honey (dark amber) and hot water ~ works wonders :-) so i totally get the garlic thing ... hugs and warmth, xo

Oh I hope you feel better soon. Hang in there! I am glad to read that your looking into natural alternatives too! I take a probiotic everyday and I highly recommend a natural pain cream called Topricin. It works really well for the aches and pains that a nasty cold can bring about. Take care!!
