Better Today

Kind thanks for all my well wishes, I am doing better.  Probably have enough steroids and antibiotics in me to sink a ship of germs, but if that's what it takes, shoot me up.
Mac has taken such good care of me, I know I've about worn him out.
What else has helped--besides my trusty Bean and Bacon soup--always a comfort food when I could finally eat.  Well Lord Peter Wimsey, I'd never read him before and I found a book of his short stories.  They have carried the day, just long enough to carry my interest without wearing me out.  Enjoyed them so much I 've ordered the first of his novels.

I quite like that he's a bit silly, not at all like Hercules Poirot.
Well I hear a nap calling so I'm off.


  1. And the rest of the good advice is, don't overdo it. Keep on keeping on improving.

  2. Glad you are feeling a bit better & to help things along try a teaspoonful of Manuka honey 30+
    twice a day, am sure you will enjoy it :)

  3. Would you believe I just finished that book the other day? (Not for the first time.) I love Lord Peter and have read all the novels and short stories many times.

    So glad you're feeling better - enjoy some quiet time and good reading!

  4. P.S. If you like a more literary mystery novel, you'd probably enjoy Josephine Tey's books. Also P.D. James (who by the way was a great fan of Dorothy L. Sayers). :)

  5. Good to hear you're feeling better. I've been "in love" with Lord Peter Wimsey ever since my teens ;)... I have re-read many of the books through the years and also a couple of years ago bought some of them as BBC radio dramas on CD and TV series on DVD (from the 1970s and starring Ian Carmichael as Lord Peter).

  6. I'm so glad that you are feeling better. Keep eating the soup - or is it 'drinking' the soup!

  7. Love Hercules Poirot. I read Lord Peter Wimsey many years ago. I just couldn't get into them maybe because I saw a TV show and I disliked the actor so much. So maybe I will pick one up and see how I like them now.

    Glad to know your better.

    cheers, parsnip

  8. Glad you are on the mend. If you like short stories do try to get hold of Salley Vickers's "Aphrodite's Hat" a book of wonderful short stories.

  9. I am glad to know that you are indeed feeling a bit better now, I hope that it continues that way. Enjoy your reading! xx

  10. Sometimes we need something silly to read. I hope you are a hundred percent again soon!

  11. Sending lots of good wishes for a speedy recovery, I love a good book and especially when I'm ill, enjoy your nap xx


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
