a medicinal pause


Ahh, the change of seasons. Here in the North Island of New Zealand we are in that changeable weather stage. It can be boiling hot in the sun, super chilly in the mornings and torrential rain at the drop of a hat. We've been pushing it a wee bit and I woke this morning to the tug of a headache and tight throat. Folks all around us are falling into bed with bad head colds or flu so I'm taking it easy and brought out the medicinals.


 I have potent lemon, honey and mint teas alternating with lemon, honey and ginger tea. It feels good to give myself permission to sit on the couch with a cup of tea and a book. Or take a long soak in the bath. And rack up a few early nights. I so rarely do that. Ahhhh.
