Honey, Lemon and Knitting





There have been copious amount of tea with honey and lemon consumed over the past week. Friday and Saturday were the worst of and things improved steadily afterwards. I'm better. Thank you for all the well wishes. 

It was a time to not do too much - I kept on with my studies, but took time for a little knitting and lounging on the couch.

And today, the wind has swept the sky clear of clouds and grey. The low slant of sun through my window is cheering. I'm looking forward to an afternoon autumn walk.

Someone asked me if I had returned to the group that made me feel so unwelcome. Yes, I did. And although I don't feel much more welcomed, I discovered some other new people there who also need friends. So I'm slowly developing relationships - going for the occasional coffee or walk together. It's good.

That cold of mine hung on for nearly two weeks. I am going to take a course of echinacea...I think my immunities are down. Very glad to know that you're feeling so much better.

Also glad to know that you found some friends at that group. Other gals needing a friend...very cool. Hope that the older, established gals will embrace you all or they're going to find themselves left out.

Have a great week!

Oh perhaps I should take a bit of tea and honey. I currently have a horrible cold complete with sore throat.

Love the color of your yarn.

I am currently taking 2 classes that should help me pass the ASID exam.

So glad you are feeling better! Tea and honey and knitting needles sounds like the perfect remedy! And how about a new follower?! :) I hope that puts a smile on your face too! You make such beautiful things!
Many blessings!

I was wondering how the 'group' had worked out for you. Glad to hear you found a few kindred souls.

Nice yarn. What will it be?

I hope you feel better soon!
Will you be taking part in any Christmas Fairs this year?
I'm trying to find a day to get up your way - it would be nice to have a visit.

Just popped in for a quick visit, whilst the kettle boils for my early morning cuppa, only to find that you've been poorly.
Honey & lemon always makes me feel better too, so comforting.
Take care
Maggie
