Martha Stewart had me at cocktail o’clock…

A box of vicks scented puff tissues…

and this lemon ginger hot toddy from Martha

Lemon-Ginger-Toddy-340x255

Should cure what ails me.

Any other great home remedies for the flu?

I'm sorry you don't feel well! I take a lot of Emergen Cee! I think they've changed the spelling of it but you can find it at Walmart or any pharmacy. You mix the packet into water and drink for a big dose of Vitamin C. It's very soothing. Hope you feel better soon! ♥

It's a bad one...I keep wishing it away but it isn't listening.

Ok...upping the water quotient...and I have had about two whole fresh lemons worth of juice.

Thanks guys!...burying my head somewhere...

Farmgirl Paints said...

OH NO...not at Christmas. I'm so sorry. A vaporizer helps...OH and a netti pot. I swear by those. Hope you feel better.

Poor girl! Feel better! Look at the bright side--at least you're someplace warm. It could be worse--you could be in NY! :-/

Rhonda Roo said...

BOOOO flu!!

Leek soup. Lots of sleep. Old black and white movies-I think Cary Grant is chock full of vitamin C..maybe a heating pad. OH! A pool boy to fetch things, including seconds on toddies.
and, some:
Extra high quality healing juju:

Linda, I just had a 2 week battle this month! I discovered those vicks puffs and it was like angels singing.

Then I watched this show on the edge of my seat (40 ways to fight flu/cold) and found some great tips:

Sharon said...

Hmm, mix in some honey, it is a natural disinfectant. Here's hoping you get well really soon!!!

Just Martha said...

Shower, then out on clean pyjamas and hop into a bed freshly made. Guaranteed to help. Anyone there to look after you?...

Ann said...

Get well soon...

If its any help, boiled turmeric with lemon grass might helped. And it kinda taste good too.

So sorry. Pedialite. I am actually not sure how to spell it but it doesn't have as much junk in it as other stuff and will keep your electrolites (can't spell those either) up.

lay low even when you are feeling better.
