next to my pillow. Maybe not quite that close! Could you sometimes just give yourself a little whack? Why on earth do my brain cells not function like they use to? I have oodles of vitamin C on the kitchen counter. Echinacea sits right next to it. Garlic is up in the cupboard. Do you think that in any of the last 3 days that I've been feeling punky that I've taken any? Not until last night. And .... I put the onion next to my bed. Next I'm going to try something else. I started coughing yesterday. Let's hope it was a fluke. When you have a cold, or child with a cold/cough, try putting Vicks on your feet ... not on your chest. Give it a try and let me know how it works. Apparently, it works very well.
In other news ... it has been cloudy and raining for several days. Yesterday the clouds lifted and the sun poked out a bit. Oh. My. Goodness. The view. I itched to run home and get a camera. So I did. I just stopped a little longer while I got dinner into the oven first. Jumped in the car and headed back toward work where clouds had been hovering in front of snow capped moutains again. (They've been bare for a while now.) There is another view that I want to capture for you as well and need to get it before it is covered with snow. Not yesterday. The clouds rolled in thicker than soup. So much for that idea. Once in a while there is a moment where you see something and kow you should stop the car ... smack dab in the middle of the street ... and grab the image because you're watching it disappear before your eyes. The sun and clouds yesterday were stunning. The traffic was a wee bit busy on Palmer Wasilla Highway and I really didn't feel like getting into a collision ... so I kept on driving. I'm learning tho'! Sieze the moment is my motto. Should have taken a driver with me. Maybe that is the ticket. Enjoy your wonderful Thursday!
