under the weather

Not a big deal, just the flu. Enough as to keep me indoors, because I cannot breath too well. And my nose hurts inside with every breath, too. So does my throat. And my neck. And still, I cannot stay in bed. Thank God for the mobile phones and the email - I can also work from home.
And here is my treatment: hot milk with a huge shot of rum (I go to sleep for a while after posting this), Kaminfeuer tea...
and some marvelous honey. Have a sweet day, everybody!


  1. Take care! Hope you'll feel better very soon. Nice cup!

  2. I hope you will feel better very soon! Take care and rest a little, too.

  3. Oh poor you - get well soon! Sanatate!

  4. Sounds like a nice of treating the flu.

    All the best!

  5. In my country we have a medicine for the cough and for the cold. A lot of acquaintance in all the Greeks. Him say '' rakomelo, traditional alcoholic drink, or rakj or ouzo, mixed with honey from flowers. You if you cannot find these traditional Greek drinks that they contain alkool, you can use whisky. The following recipe is simplest!
    ½ mug of coffee whisky
    1 spoonful of soup honey.
    In a coffee pot we place the whisky until boil, then we throw in the honey and mix (attention it inflates), afterwards certain thinly, him we remove from the fire we thus throw a quantity in a mug and drinking as he is hot.
    It should however you are careful in order to you are not burned, but also to get drunk!
    This Drinking the drink without we suck air, but, him we bring in our lips and we thus swallow very small sips, you will get drunk, but also you it will burn the neck and the sole. The result will be immediately very positive.
    Also it will go up the heat in your body, as if you have fever. Then you fall in the bed and you cover itself very well until you sweat a lot, thus to you it leaves also the likely cold. If it needs you can him make two times, a afternoon and a evening, the morning you will see the difference.
    In my country it is very widespread in order to it stops the cough, it keeps hot the person that has making the winter work in the countryside, but also to us leave some cold!

  6. Honey, Sliced Lemon, Rum/Whiskey and hot water... just the job to help at times like these... I do hope you feel better soon.

  7. Are you better? I hope so!
