One thing I realized being sick is, that I am on my own. Too sick to get the mail? Don't. Too sick to do the housework or cook anything? Don't. It was a rough weekend, as I rested to get over whatever I had. It was bad enough, that I did not leave my pajamas for a few days. The first morning I slept the entire day. The only thing I did was let the chickens out, and that was also in my pajamas.
I cannot stress on how I cannot wait for the new coop. It will make my life so much easier in the way of layers.
My husband had brought home a pizza for himself, and chicken noodle soup for me. The aftermath is yet to be cleaned up around here.
There is one thing I know now. Do not try to knit when you do not feel good. At least for me anyway. I was halfway done with a dishcloth, and messed up, and just frogged it all. I put it way until I feel better.
My husband was not back to himself either. I felt so bad we had no breakfast made, no dinners, no lunches, no laundry done, no dishes done from starting to get sick. When he goes to work, he needs a packed breakfast, lunch and coffee. At least the coffee can be pre-set the night before.
We did have one daughter text us and ask if we needed any medications or anything else.
I realized when I out for the count, and my husband is still not feeling well, we do suffer. We do are best, but there isn't anyone to cook healthy for us.
I will have to step up on this, and put some things in our freezer. Any suggestions for healthy breakfast to freeze (I know oatmeal is a good quick breakfast) when one is sick, or even other meals. I have never frozen chicken noodle soup, so I am wondering if the noodles go to mush after thawing?
When you are ill, what do you eat for your breakfast if you can? Just hot tea and toast?
I could see a need for some homemade bread to go in the freezer. Toast is sometimes needed during times of sickness. Maybe just some broth in the freezer?
While my husband is still on the mend, he is feeling better. I hope to be feeling that good in 2-3 days. He said his lasted about 5 and then he still had to take it slow.
I forgot to ask. What is your favorite wellness tea with either an herb or medicinal weed or store bought tea?
