Just Another Monday ;)

The day started off with Russell oversleeping because he did not set the alarm right. He has the alarm on his cell phone set that it goes off three times at different intervals and it only went off the first time so we both fell back asleep. He had to rush and was not really that late for work though. Yesterday I coughed for the entire 7 hours I was at work. I'd been taking cold medicine and throat drops but it was not doing any good. Then last night Russell and I had our hot green tea as we have been doing every night (honey lemon ginseng flavor & I add honey for sweetening) and I noticed I was not coughing anymore. I drank two cups of it and did not cough at all last night. I'd been drinking a different flavor but last night I drank that one because Russell said when he drank it he felt better. you think it's the green tea itself or maybe the honey? I think it's a combination of the things in it. So anyhow I got up this morning and started coughing and drank some more tea and more coughing at all. This stuff is awesome. It's the Celestial Seasoning one if anyone wants to try it. I'm going to have to go to the store today and pick up some more and some more honey as well. I'm off today and I'm not planning on doing much of anything because I feel wiped out from this cold.
Well I'm off here cause I'm going to watch Little House on the Prairie, which is on now.
Peace to y'all.


  1. I hope you get to feeling better Barb. I think you are right, it is a combination of both. Green Tea does have anti oxidants, and Honey has always been used in teas for healing as far as I know. Enjoy the day off...guess what Little House on the Prairie just was released on DVD...the whole series...though a little pricey.

  2. I figured out that you were joking whe I re-read it yesterday:)) I dont know why I didnt pick up on it the first time I read it. I do have a sense of humor:))) I hope you start to feel better. What kind of honey do you use, the little bear guy?

    My day was kinda boring. I only got 4 hours sleep too :(

  4. Yeah... I think it's the combination of what's in it. Glad it's helping, and hope you get to feeling better soon. *hugs*
