I left work early today. Gwen gave me our first cold of the season, and today was the day when it hit me like a ton of bricks. I needed to be at home wrapped up in a sweater with a warm mug of tea, relaxing with the dog and watching a movie. I think that's the greatest injustice about summer colds, you can't enjoy any of the little things that could possibly make you feel better: wrapping yourself up in something warm and drinking something hot.
That's exactly what I'm doing right now. The doors thrown open to capture the cool breeze, I have my warm PJs on, and I'm drinking my favorite cold relief drink: hot water with lemon, ginger, and honey.
We have a nice weekend ahead, not too much stuff but what we are doing is fun. In an hour my family will be home, and I will get everything started with dinner and the evening routine, before going to bed early. But for now I'm just going to sit and relax and enjoy the fall cold remedies.
