{comforts} viral spiral

a terrible horrible no good very bad flu descended upon me on saturday evening.

i shall spare you the details of suffering and angst and instead share with you the simple things that have made a huge difference in my last few days...

delicious flavors + extra vitamins + small cans

i adore drinking from straws + these eliminate the waste

my favorite lip stuff ever
sinks in + moisturizes deeply

old school ointment + so mentholicious

antioxidants + warmth

instant streaming for continuous movie watching
favorite choice this week: the young victoria

sweet kevwrex has been my knight in shimmering armor. he has taken incredible care of this sick innkeeper. and my dear pup daria has been right by my side giving me lots of love.

ok, friends. fanfare please...i officially declare that i am henceforth moving on from this malady.

on wednesday, i look forward to sharing my very first guest post ever!

Aww, I'm sorry you're not feeling well. Netflix and tea is always a good combo.

i was sick recently, too :( i hope you feel better!

you should try Yogi tea called Throat Comfort if you have a sore throat it was like magic for me! i call it willy wonka tea :)
first it tastes a little bitter then when you swallow it tastes sweet and you can actually feel it coating your throat!

i am so glad you found things to make you feel better!

love the izze - very cool design. and the straws are great too. just wonder how you keep them properly clean after a while!?

hope you get better soon xxx

Malady be gone!

Hope you are feeling better today. I love Izze (pomegranate is my fave), Rose Salve ( I have actually given away tins of this from my purse!), and the soothing old-school relief of Vicks. It reminds me of my Nana who lived with us and would rub Vicks on my chest when I was ill.

Glad to hear you're feeling better, although being sick is never fun.

I hadn't seen those straws before - very cool.

diane said...

thank you everyone for all the get well love! i really appreciate it.

heidi...that tea is an excellent suggestion. i love that you call it willy wonka tea! :)

petra...the straws come with a special brush for cleaning the inside + can be sterilized in the dishwasher or with super hot water. i love them!

mim...yes, my mom used to rub vicks on me + wrap me in a warm towel. so comforting.

This is one of the more brilliant lists I've seen in a while. I also have a sneaking suspicion that my guy is getting sick and will be in need of many of these things soon. I really like those straws. I wonder how you'd get them properly clean?

diane said...

chantilly...thank you! oh, i hope your love isn't getting sick. i wondered the same thing about the straws but they come with a long skinny brush for scrubbing the inside + can be sterilized in the dishwasher or with boiling water.
