Friday Bits

Lemon Ginger
I've been battling a cold, and mostly winning, all week. I don't feel great but I haven't gotten horribly ill either which I attribute to massive amounts of lemon, ginger, and honey "tea", and rest. I actually should probably have gotten more rest but what can you do. Honey is my go-to when I have a cold, I mix it in hot water or just eat it by the spoonful to soothe my throat.

It's my birthday on Monday and I refuse to be sick for that! I'm not really sure what I'll be doing this year yet though. Last year Aradan and I went out for a memorable meal at Beast, this year I doubt we'll be so fancy since it's not such a milestone birthday. It's been a lifelong dream to eat an entire cake by myself, so maybe I will do that!

♥ the only link I really wanted to share this week is this thoughtful comic. I find it incredibly affirming and comforting and I know a lot of you will feel the same way!


  1. Love that comic. thanks! have a great weekend.

  2. That comic was just what I needed to read today. Thank you for that. For the past 4 years or so I have been sick right on or right around my birthday. Hoping for better health this year though! And hoping you finally kick that cold's butt! Happy almost birthday! :D

  3. I hope you feel better soon and have a lovely birthday!

  4. Eating an entire cake, all by yourself...... sounds like my kind of dream! Have a lovely birthday!

  5. The right words at the right moment - my Monday couldn't have started better.
    Thank you for sharing that comic and... happy birthday!

  6. Oh dear! Wishing you better very soon....our wee one had a cold a few weeks back.....not fun at all, poor little miss! & Those flowers are so delicately lovely!
