The rain's perfume filled my room
the morning light had a hint of grey,
My husband's steps downstairs were soft
my bed was my vehicle of healing this cold.
I rolled over, pulled the blanket over my head and slept for another few hours which was the best medicine.
What is the saying feed a cold starve a fever? I looked it up:
"The thinking behind the old saying "feed a cold, starve a fever" goes like this: fasting causes a drop in body temperature, which helps to fight a high fever, while eating raises your temperature, warming you up if you have a cold and keeping your sniffles at bay. ... If—or when you're hungry, eat."
Around six in the evening, I realized I hadn't had anything to eat since noon yesterday. I ate a little but still do not have an appetite. Tomorrow I will probably eat an entire grocery store.
My nieces will not be at Chelsea's wedding. I bought their tickets before I knew that Chelsea was going to be married in July.
They are okay with it, and it is what it is.
Sacha is looking for a place to live in Seattle, he is hoping for one of these areas:
Greenlake, Fremont, Ballard, Georgetown, Industrial district, Captiol Hill, Madrona, or even South Lake Union, Westlake, Eastlake, Queen Ann or Magnolia.
If you know of anything in any of those areas please let me know, and I will let Sacha know.
My friend Martina, who lives in Seattle, who I know through blogging is drying rose petals from her garden for Chelsea's and Martin's wedding. The rose petals are so perfect compared to my shriveled ones! I asked Martina how she managed to have them look so perfectly:
"I (Martina) used a wood frame. Years ago I had stapled chicken wire inside to make for a little treasures holder, but never used it.
Elevated it and put some lacy fabric over, then petals flat on it. Because Cashew the cat will eat any plant or flower in the house, I gently placed more lace on top. Two days in a room that gets full sun est voila! "
What is new with you?
