Sunrise ~ Sickness


We had a beautiful sunrise the other day, and I could not help myself, but to take some photos.  There is still snow on our porch.

I had plans to take our outside Christmas lights down today, but that is not happening.  I have come down with a sickness, and of course all of our covid tests at home have expired.

I'm doing all I can do from home - mullein tea, eucalyptus/oil rub, 4 thieves, humidifier, diffuser, etc etc.  I really want some homemade ginger ale, but I have zero energy to make it.  I feel like someone beat me up, and the cough is horrible.  So far, no fever.

Not sure if I picked it up while out shopping, or have been over doing things here at the house.  I'll be taking a blog break to heal up and get over this, whatever it is.  The weather isn't helping either.  The frigid temps that we just had are now changing to the 50's with rain.

Newbie here :D
Check the website for your covid test. A lot of the manufacturers have changed the expiration dates.

Oh Kristina, I'm so sorry to hear you are sick. Sounds horrible! But it also sounds like you are doing all the right things to help your body heal. I hope you are feeling better soon.

My dear friend had the same symptoms that you have and she was diagnosed with RSV. She waited several days before going to the doctor so her recovery has been long. (They told her she should have called or come in right away) She had two regimens of antibiotics and two of steroids and after five weeks she is slowly gaining her strength back. I hope this is not your case and that you have a simple cold that is sapping your strength and you will be feeling better in just a few days. Take good care of yourself.
