Winter Illness

Something I forgot about this time of year is that it's cold and flu season.  I've been hit hard this last week with a flu, and I've been relying on some of my pre-written posts to fill in.  Well, I have overslept the last couple of days trying to feel better, and forgot to schedule a post for yesterday morning.  So, I'm writing this post to let everyone know that I'm resting up one more day, and going to resume the regularly scheduled posts tomorrow.

Some of my own quick tips for feeling better if you're sick this winter:

I use a homemade vapor rub on my chest at night to help clear my breathing passages.  It's much better than the name brand stuff.

Gypsy Cold Care Tea is a delicious tea that helps me feel better.  Once my herb garden starts this spring, I'm going to try to develop a homemade tea recipe that simulates this one, and I'll share that when I do.

Lastly, we went through plenty of cough drops this time around.  I haven't tried it before, but I found this recipe for homemade cough drops and I want to make some up the next time I'm starting to feel sick (by the time I found the recipe I was too sick feeling for DIY).  I'll review my efforts on the blog here too.

Anyway, sorry for the late post.  If you're feeling sick too, maybe those links can help you feel a little bit better.  Thanks for reading!
