Cold Season

Ugh! The cold season has decided to knock on our door and someone
practiced hospitality and invited it in. Little Miss caught a virus and
had to be taken to the ER Thursday night when her fever peaked at
104.2*F. She is fine. They sent her home with instructions to give her
alternating doses of acetaminophen and ibuprofen until the fever is
completely gone. We are all taking precautions to help reduce the risk
of us all sharing in Little Miss' virus experience. In some things,
family togetherness is not always necessary. LOL

I have had a bit of a sore throat, so have my honey-lemon made in the
refrigerator. It is a small jar of equal amounts of honey and lemon.
Every time my throat starts to bother me, I stir it up and take a
spoonful. Gotta love the Amish methods of doing things! Sometimes the
simple is better. If I want a nice warm tea, I stir a spoon of the
honey-lemon mixture into a cup of hot water.

I am looking for an alternative to the popular hand sanitizers. I know
there has to be a more natural alternative. Will post if I find one.

If you start getting a cough try this: Mince up some garlic cloves and put in some olive oil. Let stand for about 30 minutes or can heat up. Rub on your feet and put socks on before going to bed. This actually works! My hubby had bronchitis and was really miserable with all the coughing. I made up some and he used it before he went to bed. It stopped his coughing enough so he could sleep (and so could I). He used it for several days and is much better now.
