Yep, Donnamo is under the weather. I have a sniffly, stuffy, sneezy head cold. The first one in a long time. Growing up I was ever so prone to colds despite constant warnings to "wrap up" etc... In our home the go to treatments were two atomizers.
THESE TWO BABIES ARE CLOSE TO WHAT WE HAD. THE CLEAR ON HAD NASAL SPRAY AND THE BROWN BOTTLE WAS THROAT SPRAY.
If you were lucky, I usually was not, you didn't get an enema to go along with your misery. What can I say, my Dad believed in an enema as treatment for EVERYTHING! Right, Victoria? (My second cousin reads this blog and my Dad was her doc as well.)
At any rate, my treatment is to dose up on Musinex, nose spray, and Zyrtex and stay in bed and read. I read this lovely book, The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier yesterday. It was great; has some quilting references but a genuine historical novel....not Jennifer Chaiverini quilt novel. Tracy is from Washington, DC; my parent's best friends and our neighbors were Chevalier. Ever since I discovered Tracy I have been wanting to see if there is a connection. So far, no luck.
Hubs is out of town on a golf outing, but if there are any burglar/rapists reading this, let me assure you I am locked and loaded so don't bother to come to my house.
Right after Christmas, I discovered Call the Midwife on PBS but alas, it was the last episode of Season 1. So I emailed my friendly, knowledgeable librarian and asked her to find the DVD for me. Last night I watched disc 1 today disc 2 is on tap. It is about public health nurses in London after the war. These poor women were having babies one right after another. I guess birth control hadn't come to the UK or they were Catholic and didn't practice it.
My last form of entertainment is learning or rather trying to learn to crochet Granny Squares. On the blog, Attic 24, the blogger is a crocheter in England. She does the sweetest, most beautiful color "hooky" things. If you know anything about crochet....mine do not resemble hers in anyway. I have watched three videos on the Internet and keep the book in my lap but so far no success. I'll post pics if I ever get them right.
Well, back to bed with a bowl of oatmeal and another Tracy Chevalier book, Burning Bright.
Leave a comment; I'm socially deprived for the moment. I had to put the comment moderator on because I would get 50 spam comments a day. Thank you Caroline for weighing ink yesterday. :
