Good day, my friends. Unbelievably, I am still sick. I'm feeling behind and also feeling sad because it's sunny out and I would love to have the energy to do something, anything! I keep thinking, "Tomorrow, I will be all better." I guess it's not really something that I get to control, no matter how much I wish I could. It's only my third day on the anti-biotics, so maybe tomorrow I'll be better. Sheesh!

Okay, enough whining. Let's focus our attention on other, more fun things. I'm at least not so sick that I can't type (that was last week.)! So let me tell you that my friend and mentor, Pam Corwin, has offered a generous discount for any of my friends who want to shop with her at Paper Scissors Rock. If you type in "bcharm" as the coupon code during your checkout process, you can take 15% off of your order! How great is that??

Stay well, people! Tomorrow I will tell you how much BETTER I'm feeling! Above is a photo of the catkins on my contorted hazelnut tree. Don't they look so happy and full of life?

oohhh, Colleen, eat lots of GARLIC! That is the only natural anti-biotics, as far as I know.

OK, 2nd great advice from Hungary: meat soup - it does help! (unless you are vegetarian :-) )
Beef, carrots, turnip, potato, cellery, onion, garlic, salt, pepper and water of course. Cook it big fire untill it starts to boil, and then 4 hours on slow fire.
I eat eat every time I am ill.

Thanks you two! I'm a big believer in soups and garlic, too. In fact, I've been eating RAW garlic for about a week now. When I finally went and saw the doctor, he wanted to look in my mouth. When I opened up, he actually took a few steps back! Poor guy! I couldn't smell a thing, but I KNOW I was REALLY stinky. How embarrassing!
