the life of the flu girl

I think I'll live. woo hoo. Okay, it's been a long time since I've been knocked down flat for this long. The crazy thing is I just had the flu. I felt so incredibly loved by all your sweet comments for a 3 day flu. I truly can't imagine what long term pain and discomfort could be like.
I'm going to take it easy today yet but I thought I would at least give you a small glimpse into my convalescence. I made a fantastic pot of soup, which I'll post the recipe for another day. My mom always made really good chicken noodle soup and I've never seen her spice combination in any cookbook.

Last night, I croaked from the couch, a snack might be nice. My sweet man brought me this to the coffee table and this morning when I downloaded the pictures I saw that he had even taken a picture of it in the kitchen before he brought it out. When I asked him about it, he said . .."I'm trained".
Currently these are my two favorite teas.
Alright, it's back to the couch, I've missed reading your blogs, and I'm hoping tomorrow I'll be back. I did mention to my good man, that it does seem that I need a notebook computer for my job so that I could work from my couch. He was amused at this.
Thank you again for all your loving thoughts, have a great day, and stay away from sick people.


  1. I'm glad Terry is taking such good care of you. What a good man. That soup looks so good. My favourite meal is homemade (mennonite) chicken noodle soup. My mom made such good soup and would make some freshly baked zwieback to go with it. What could be better?

  4. I'm so glad you are feeling a little bit better. I stopped by this morning to check on you. :) May the day go better and better and better --- so you can be skimming through life with your usual energy soon! The soup and tea look delightful! And your DH's snack plate --- I'm very impressed, not only that he took a picture, but with the creative design of the things on the plate! Great job! LOL!

  6. Glad to hear that your starting to feel better. The flu is a terrible thing makes you feel so weak! Get well soon!

  7. Guess who will be getting a notebook for Christmas....
    I need those spices for that soup. I make Huhner Suppe alot, it's my kids favorites and I know there are some special spices..
    I think that flu virus is coming through the internet...I have somthing hitting I thought we could blame our virus protector.
    Have a great day

  8. aw, good job, beloved mr.t. you are a good man, how can you not be with such a good woman. glad to hear that you are on the mend.

  9. Glad to hear you are starting to feel better! TLC goes a long way :)

    Our favourite green tea is Tetley Mint. We'll have to give pomegranate a try.

    Good for you for helping Terry with the Christmas shopping already. You're very thoughtful :)

  10. I'm so glad you're better! Good thing you have your husband trained! ;) He's taking great care of you. Rest up!

  11. So you actually made a pot of delicious homemade chicken noodle soup while you were sick? Have you ever heard of Lipton's? Not quite so delicious...but can almost be made from the couch!

    Glad to hear you are on the mend.

  12. Hi from SLC! Glad you are feeling perkier, and Bernie got a good guffah about T. being trained. A laptop is sweet...

  13. Being sick is no fun - well maybe a tiny bit because of the TLC. There's some good lovin' going round at your house.

  14. How sweet of Terry to take care of your needs, and to even be so thoughtful as to take that photo! I'm glad to hear that you're beginning to recover, but don't overdo it.

  15. I laughed (nicely) when you said Terry even took a picture... I could so clearly imagine him alone in the kitchen trying to arrange the food the way you would and then took the photo... Not many like him around... I do think you better hold on tight!!! smile

    I am glad you are feeling somewhat better.... although with the TLC you are getting I might go for another day.... smile

    Mighty Leaf tea?? when my neighbour introduced me to it...all other tea took second place.

    sending my love and a hug...I'm not afraid of computer viruses....

  16. Good to hear you are feeling a little better. I can't believe you made soup while you were sick. Take it easy, eh! But I know how a person can crave soup when you're sick. Have a good evening and rest up.

  17. I hear ya! I'm a bit sick myself these days...hope you are feeling better soon...

  18. Glad to hear you are on the mend.

    I just got my husband trained to make dinner... guess I will work on the photo part now :)

  19. Awwww! Terry is so sweet and I'm glad to read that you're on the mend.

    Keep taking it easy though because we don't want you to have a relapse! Besides, lap up all that kind and loving attention! ;)

  20. Praying you feel better...beautiful pictures for a sick girl ;-)

    If you have time while you are resting...could you pray for my family. We are needing prayer for our seems to be going 'belly up.'

    one homemade and 5 adopted

  21. How cute is that that he took a picture before bringing it to you???? So great! My friends still kind of groan in my general direction when I pull out my camera. :)
