End of November

It's the end of November and all the Fall and Thanksgiving stuff must be packed away.  But I woke up today stiffer and as sore, both arms, as the day I fell.  Took a hot shower, an antihistamine to deal with my cough----I literally coughed all night---and spent some quality couch time and I'm feeling a bit better.  My arms are less stiff, but I'm still coughing enough to make it into the final act of Camille.
Mac brought me down a tub that I store most of the stuff in and I'm on my way, whisking about doing my imitation of a one-armed paper hanger.
Christmas is coming and I must not be stopped or slowed by mere human frailty.

  1. There is nothing more irritating that a cough that just will not go away - hope it soon gets better.

  3. Don't overdo it, the aches are telling you to slow down and take it easy, everything in moderation.

  7. Icy Hot is a cream we rub on our sore arms and backs. It takes away the pain. Hope you get better soon. Looking forward to seeing your Christmas decor.

  10. How about directing Mac from your armchair with your feet up. Do take it easy for a few days. Hopefully you will feel better soon :) B x

  11. I am bothered by a cough that often disturbs me during the night so I know how you feel - don't push yourself too hard though it doesn't matter if all the jobs are not completed.

  12. I think you need a day of pampering, perhaps a gentle massage for your poor arms, followed by a soak in the bath with a good book to read, and either a steaming mug of hot chocolate or a glass of wine, depending on the time of day. Before going to bed, have a hot drink with lots of honey stirred in - that might help soothe your cough.
