It could have been tissues.

Hello from the land of cold #5. 

Cold #5 is not somewhere that you want to visit. It’s full of coughing and stuffy noses and swollen air ways and swollen lymph nodes. It’s the land of ,”Tom Selleck could come knocking at my front door and I wouldn’t even bother to comb my hair or change out of my sweat pants.”

Something happens to your sense of humor in the land of cold #5, it runs away screaming and threatens to NEVER, EVER, come back. 

I have a feeling a LOT of you have been taking this journey this winter and you have my sympathy. Here are my recommendations for dealing with your symptoms.               

Build yourself a nest of blankets on your bed, pretend you’re a squirrel,curl up in it and stay there.

Find a sympathetic pet and tell them your troubles as the mountain of tissues grows beside you. Don’t pick a dog for this remedy…they get disgusting around tissues.

Pull a little table next to your bed, then pile cough drops, tissues,a steam inhaler thingy, your laptop, tissues, your headphones, your phone, your chargers for your phone and headphone, tissues, bottles of water, crackers, applesauce, a spoon, tissues, chapstick, earrings, (in case Tom Selleck really does stop by), and piece of chocolate that you won’t eat, BECAUSE YOU’RE SICK.

In closing…I posted the image of the female cardinals because they aren’t tissues, nobody really wants to see a picture of tissues.

 

 

 

The blustery day.

I find myself wondering if birds get really chilly on winter, windy days.

I know their feathers keep them warm, but when the wind lifts them up and away from their bodies, the cold wind must send a chill through them.

I was trying to recreate their experience by walking up and down the driveway and flapping my coat open and shut and I definitely was colder than I would have normally been. If you live in a cold climate, you can try the same experiment. Make sure to wear clothes under your coat…we don’t want to read about you in the newspaper.

 

AND ON WE GO…

THE WORDPRESS ISSUES OF YESTERDAY SEEM TO HAVE BEEN IRONED OUT. 

BECAUSE THE SNOW AND COLD ARE HANGING ON WITH A GREAT AMOUNT OF DETERMINATION, I’M SHOWING YOU SOMETHING ELSE THAT’S HANGING ON WITH GREAT DETERMINATION…THE BIRDS.

THIS IS A BLUE JAY, FEATHERS ALL PUFFED UP TO KEEP OUT THE COLD.

IF YOU ASKED ME TO GO SIT ON A BRANCH WHILE IT’S SNOWING AND FREEZING WITH NOTHING MORE THAN A COAT OF FEATHERS…I’D PUNCH YOU. (Sorry, that was mean.)
