Burning things

I’ve spent most of the day in a haze of stuffy sinuses, dripping nose, sore throat, and coughing. (Yes, Sudafed, I know; I’ll be getting medicine tomorrow if this persists.) I was complaining about my plight to Brad – the not-breathing is the worst part – and he suggested a strategy, which I proceeded to carry out. I went to the kitchen, filled a glass of water, took out the bottle of Sriracha, and downed two spoonfuls of it, taking occasional breaks for water or cheese (mmm, fat and casein). Then, I hopped into a shower with the water turned as hot as I could bear it, and let the clog in my sinuses slowly melt away. It’s not perfect now, but at least I can breathe.

Also, a happy Groundhog Day, Candlemas, Feast of the Purification of the Virgin, Feast of the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple, St. Bridget’s Day, and/or Imbolc to you. The darkness fades; the light draws near.

    And a happy Tu B’Shevat, New Year of the Trees! Remember the lemon tree we planted on Tu B’Shevat for Dovchu and Sara? It’s flourishing. Lemon and honey will help you now. Hope you feel better soon.
