My Annual Date with Anne (of Green Gables)
I ended up succumbing to the cold that was brewing last week. I'm a bit of a bloke when it comes to having a cold...I kind of keel over and pretend to die for a few days. In my defense it only happens once a year, usually, so I'm not well practiced at what it is to be sick.
In any case when I have to take a day off work because I'm unwell I spend the time sleeping and watching 'Anne of Green Gables'. It's our annual appointment and one I always enjoy. Because it's comforting to catch up with friends who have been a part of your life for a very long time. When you're unwell you need comfort in whatever guise it can be found. And good cold and flu meds. It is a perfect prescription for getting well again.
Do you know else what I've discovered this week? I really, really enjoy having hot water with a slice of lemon in it. Better, even, than a cup of tea. My lemon tree is groaning with overabundance so I am set to enjoy this for a few months yet!
What are your comforting traditions when you're under the weather?
