taking care

Taking care of myself this evening as I fend off a head cold. I realized early this morning at about two a.m. (when I woke with a headache and a severe sore throat) that this little bug had probably been brewing all weekend right between my eyes. This comes as a bit of a downer - just when there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel and just as the snow is melting away from my garden - one last case of the snuffles before the summer sunshine burns all of that away.

I'm making my standby cure for colds - what I call restorative chicken noodle soup. I posted the recipe here. It's got pretty much everything you would expect to find in a pot of chicken noodle soup - and as well as ginger and jalapeno. These two ingredients also compliment the chicken and vegetables.

I did poke around out in the garden this afternoon and found some perfect green leaves. This appears to be a daisy specimen. My dianthus plants are also coming around  They will be some of my first blossoms in the garden - magenta, pink and coral. Hooray! (Sneeze!)

For tonight I'm going to pull on my comfiest pair of wool socks and have a nice bowl of soup. Take care, everyone.


  1. Hope you are feeling better soon! The soup looks delicious :)

  2. Hope you feel better soon - that soup looks both beautifully nourishing and like it would blow a cold away with heat and spice at the same time.
