Yesterday I was feeling poorly. I was dragging around all day, so
last night I could hardly wait to climb into bed.
This morning I did not feel much better. I had all the tell tale signs
of coming down with some kind of bug. I probably picked up
something during my travels last week. So I thought I would just
take some aspirin and get cozy and climb back into bed with the
current book on my nightstand. Bentley wanted to go outside to
double check that our squirrels were staying in line. While
waiting for him, I decided to make a cup of tea and then thought
I needed something other than my usual oatmeal and mixed berries.
Not the whole wheat, whole grain, healthy for you kind of toast.
No, feeling too poorly for that ;-) What I wanted was two slices
of good old Texas Toast with lots of butter! The kind of toast
that is pure comfort food.
So I sat down with my tea and my toast and read Susan Branch's
latest blog post about the recent Downton Abbey episode.
After a few minutes something happened. I noticed some
changes in how I was feeling. Suddenly the headache and
stuffy nose had disappeared. The achey feeling was leaving me
It's a miracle! Toast and tea is a miracle! I am cured!!
I closed up my laptop and headed to the fridge for some orange
juice. I chased down a vitamin C tablet with the juice just to
make sure that the recovery lasts :-)
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
