Monday and I'm still here...
It is highly unusual for me to miss a Sunday Afternoon Tea post two weeks in a row but I had a bit of a relapse Saturday evening. Nothing horrible, just the return of queasiness and the cold symptoms getting a little worse. Typical winter stuff... and I have been very fortunate. There was a "super cold" that was going around and my husband had it (he is still coughing) as did Christopher (he ended up with pneumonia). This is not even close to what they experienced.
So instead of writing yesterday, I spent the day with a box of tissues, multiple cups of tea, and a cat sleeping on the back of the recliner. I still can't get used to a kitty asleep behind me because Victoria was too large of a cat to be comfortable there (even though she kept her girlie figure but Maine Coons are big cats).
Florentine is so little compared to Victoria. While she is still skittish, she now loves to be around us and anyone spending hours on the recliner makes her very happy. I'd love to bottle her energy. One of the toys her Auntie B. sent her was a kind of a fishing rod thing with feathers on the end of it. That was wonderful yesterday as I could stay in the recliner and "play" with Florentine.
Today I saw her with the feathers in her teeth, walking into another room with the "fishing rod" following on the carpet. If that happens when I have the camera near, I will take a photo. Hilarious. Even when you don't feel well!
Thankfully, there was both an Alaska: The Last Frontier marathon and a Finding Bigfoot marathon yesterday. So if one had to choose a day to be down and out, it was a good one. I know, I do have odd taste in TV programs. Although both shows take place in wilderness or forested areas. Come to think of it, I've never been to a psychiatrist. I expect someone could have a field day with my Bigfoot obsession. There is a story behind it by the way...
I need to return to the sofa and my pillow. The more I rest (except for dinner and dishes!), the faster my weakened immune system will heal. I have a publisher's book review due in a day or two. I had planned a Book Talk this week but it probably will be put off until next week.
Hot tea sounds really good right now. Perhaps Candy Cane Lane. Yes, that is just what the doctor ordered. ;)
