This is the first day in over a month without rain - although I did check the weather network a few minutes ago and they did say there was flurries.
The cold/flu seems to gradually leaving and my energy is returning; although I haven't been overly productive today, at least I made the effort. I interviewed a friend today who told me he liked to eat honey when he had throat/vocal problems because of the soothing properties. I usually combine honey with lemons but I don't have a problem eating honey on its own - as long as it's not that nauseating manuka honey - ick. So tonight, on the way home, I picked up a container of creamed honey. I'll swear it doubled in price since the last time I bought it. I came home, ate some on a spoon and the rest on toast and yes, my throat really does feel better - back to normal, even. My friend did recommend putting honey in tea but I find sweet tea nauseating so I think I'll skip that. I was hoping to try a few more of the Ashby teas today but I forgot to take them to work with me - hopefully I'll have some opinions tomorrow.
What made me happy today: 1. getting my GST rebate cheque in the mail - who doesn't like getting a cheque? 2. Getting a health tip from a friend that worked - eating creamed honey did sooth my throat.
