In Bed with Clive

Where I would rather be with Clive.

Usually when I feel a cold coming on I take ColdFx and it never comes to fruition.  I did not do that this week.

Now I have a cold.  Probably the first in several years.  So I hiked off to the store, stocked up on soup, the aformentioned med, and red licorice.  As a nurse I know red licorice heals all.  Well, I figured it would help my scratchy throat.  Its too bad everything is tasteless today.  But I have persisted.  After all the saying is feed a cold, starve a fever.  I hope I did not get that backwards? Cause I have been feeding.

When I was in shopping I came across Clive just begging to come home with me.  How could I resist?  I had already decided to spend the day resting and while he never fails to raise my interest I find him also comforting.

Truth be told it is not Clive himself who draws my interest but Juan.  Juan Cabillaro.  So I have spent the afternoon and early evening with these two charming men.

Thank you Clive Cussler and your hero in The Silent Sea for making my day better.

PS Now you really did not believe for even a minute that it could be anything except a really good book?

    1. For it to work you have to really really believe. Here it is two days later and I am fine..healed. Course it could have been the ColdFx or the soup or maybe it was just time. I can promise if you do not feel well and you already love it..it will make you feel better!

  1. I hope you feel better. Use a cinnamon stick in the tea instead of powder form. Works great. Warm salt gargle. But I don’t think there is anything wrong with taking a couple/few men home from the book store with you. Theres nothing more comforting than a good book, hot cuppa tea. And lots of people wishing you well and better!!!! 🙂 God bless!

  2. Didn’t know about red liquorice – I’ll go and find some. My cure-all is hot ginger tea with honey. Feeling very sick today, not sure I could even handle Clive LOL!

  3. I always pick up random men in the store, too! Hahaha. My sister says cinnamon is supposed to be good for you when you’re sick. I tried it in tea, but it doesn’t dissolve like sugar – tasted bad that way. Hope you feel better soon.

I love to hear your thoughts on this!
