Our son is coming home for an impromptu visit! We are elated. He is in between rotations in hospital and is going crazy in his apartment so for a few air miles, we have our big boy with us for a week. Then, his dad will drive with him back to Chicago for a visit. Neither of us has seen Chicago before and because I am teaching, I can't go... No matter, at least I get to see my boy!
So I'm into my 4th day of a cold and it's not as bad as it could have been. I'm a firm believer in killing a cold at the beginning. Lots of fluids, home-made chicken soup, oregano oil twice a day; this has to be one of the foulest tasting liquids a person can take but it's known to have strong anti-bacterial/viral properties. I feel like I can cope well with my teaching/marking load this week.
On another front, the snow is disappearing with the strong sunshine and it looks like spring is here for real... although I must say I remember a May 19th (my cousin Norman's birthday) when it snowed! I can't wait to use the new deck, so the furniture will be going up in April, I think.
DC has asked that I show a picture of my new hair style. Here it is. This is me, after a full day's work, doing a load of laundry, washing yesterday's dishes and making supper, eating supper and writing this post in bed. Not bad for an old dame huh?
Talk to ya later,
