I am putting the lights on the Christmas tree tonight. We won't put the ornaments on until our son gets home from college, but we can start enjoying the lights right away.
When I was little I was extremely allergic to fresh cut Christmas trees, so we have always had an artificial tree. Putting the tree up involves moving the living room furniture around so that the tree can be centered in the front window. In the past this has involved a lot of pushing, pulling and sliding on my part. Today I realized when I was half way across the room that I had picked up the brass table lamp and was carrying it. I really am stronger than I was a year ago!
I have been fighting a cold, and I almost won. A few days ago, at the very first sign, I started elderberry drops, extra B vitamins, extra C, and astragalas. I was also interested that Dr. D'Adamo's blog about flu recommended parsnips. Since they are a favorite vegetable, I was only too glad to make a big bowl. I have never felt bad, never even felt tired.
I skipped over the usual early stages of a cold: the scratchy throat and runny nose; and went right to the end, a touch of laryngitis and a cough. I don't have any of the three things the Encyclopedia recommends for a Type O cough. In fact I've never heard of them. I must get to the Health food store tomorrow and see what they have. In the meantime, I confess that when I cough myself awake at night, I take a prescription cough syrup.
