I woke up this morning feeling terrible. I've been running a fever, have a sore throat and a wicked cough. I called the doctor and tried to get an appointment, but he was filled up. I asked for him to call in some medication for me and he gave me an anti-biotic which seems to be helping a great deal. The fever is down, the cough is pretty much gone, but the throat is still bad. I guess it just takes some time for that to go away. Also now I have no voice! It's hard to communicate in a whisper, but that's all I've got.
I called in sick to work. My boss was not happy with me, but I can't help that. What did he want me to do, spread the germs? I guess so. I am going to try to go to work tomorrow. Let's see how I feel.
While I was home I finished decorating for Valentine's Day. I put two wreaths on the front door: one outside:
And one inside:
I also put out my Cherished Teddy cupid bear.
And this other cute little figure I have.
It has been bitterly cold here. I don't think it's gotten above 20* all day. Even the house is chilly. That's the thing with old houses, there's not a lot of insulation. My house was built in 1925 so it's not the greatest when it gets real cold. I'm so glad I have some quilts my mom made for me and the little stove my sister gave me. It really makes a difference. Especially when I'm not feeling well.
Besides keeping me warm, the fire is so nice to look at. I was watching the fire and fell asleep this afternoon. It's so soothing.
I hope I feel better by tomorrow. I've had two doses of medicine now (I take it twice a day with food and lots of water), so let's see how it goes. Until later....
