A Delay to Spring

Winter hangs on, and so does the flu season.  The flu may be milder if you've had a flu shot. Stay home, rest, plenty of water, and too much television city has been the destination for me this week. At night I feel worse.  An Internet search tells me that's the normal way the body works. Yay day time. The worse is over almost as fast as it began. Thank you flu shot.

More treats...
Wifi despite turning it off in settings, continues to turn on. It disrupts data usage as in pulls up a disconnected notice until I shut it off again to return to the Internet page I'm on. Why a cell phone is designed without a Wifi shut off option that works is a mystery.
Not setting up a laptop is freeing when resting on the sofa.

There are too many television shows that are too similar. There may be different characters, settings, and themes, but they have the good old predictability anatomy. Documentaries save the day. Nova and Nature are favorites.

Water is the only drink, besides leftover milk in the cereal bowl that doesn't disappoint.

Craving ginger ale and vanilla bean ice cream is easier to ignore after a sleeve of crackers.
Vermont Creamery cranberry and orange goat cheese is my new go to treat. Sorry yogurt.
The sock drawer will move to a smaller space. Time to let go of unmatched socks after too many years of hoping.

Have a happy week-end!

  1. Dear Maywyn it certainly has been a bad winter for the flu. Hope you begin to feel better. My vote would be to toss the goat cheese and indulge in some of that vanilla bean ice cream. Take care and keep the faith spring is on its way. Hugs!

  2. Hi Debbie,
    I do feel better. I'll be out and about today, and spring cleaning, slowly. :)
    Hugs!

  3. I've managed to avoid the flu this year. All I had was a bad sore throat after Christmas.

    1. Hi William,
      Glad to read no flu. I think people outdoors in fresh air helps good health.
      I feel great compared to two days ago. So I bought ice cream and ginger ale.

  4. Sorry to hear that you have flu - however lessened it is by the jab. I could never eat anything on the few occasions I had flu and couldn't even be bothered to watch television. Get well quickly. Your sock drawer needs you.

    1. Hi Graham,
      Appetite was way lower than normal. Crackers, water and a bit of cheese menu.
      I am very thankful the flu didn't last long.
      My socks...lol

  5. I have that thing with unmatched socks too. It takes a lot to make me give up hope with that. I hope you feel completely well soon.

  6. Hi Jenny,
    My oldest pair 1992, missing the match for over ten years. I keep hoping one day I'll fit into mywhen thinner jeans and find the match clinging inside the leg or behind a pocket. :)

  7. So sorry you've been ill. The flu was so bad this year. I don't get flu shots-personal decision. I did have a whopper of a cold earlier this year. Nothing like ginger ale when you're sick. I also love good ole chicken noodle soup. I do hope you're better very soon!

    1. Hi Tabor,
      I've heard people wondering the same thing, flu or a bad cold. Body aches, I think, are worse with the flu. That's the way I tell the difference. This year, from what people tell me, even that rule doesn't work.
      I had to move a tee shirt drawer to make room for winter time socks. I estimate by now half are mismatches.
