flowersandhome said...

O yes, thank goodness for tissues. We have been using them for years now and yet, at christmastime, my husband got.... a whole bunch of hankies as a christmasgift from his mom. They're big ones too so maybe I can make cushions out of them, a whole lot of cushions, to snuggle up soft and cosy while sick with the flu and having to use thousands of.... tissues. I wish you the very best and hope you feel much better again soon.
Bye,
Marian

Linda said...

{oc cottage} said...

Oh rats! SO sorry to hear you are under the weather!
Somehow...so far...I have managed to avoid that bug
even though all around me have gotten it! Praying
for your speedy recovery...REST! REST! REST! {I guess
marshmallows on a steaming hot mug of Theraflu would
be kinda gross, huh??!! ;}

FEEL BETTER!!!!!

Willow's Quiet Corner said...

Ugh! I hope you beat that darn flu bug soon! It is no fun being down for the count! My nose has thanked me for switching to those tissues with lotion in them . . . they really keep it from getting red and sore! (BTW . . . that cocoa looks delish!)

polkadotpeticoat said...

Oh you poor thing, Your right on the hankies especially mens.......yuck! I hope your up and feeling better soon and your peppermint cocoa looks scrumptious!!

wendy said...

hot cocoa with peppermint...wow, yummy
I don't drink a lot of hot chocolate, as it is generally too rich for me. BUT...on a cold night when you want to feel cozy, it hits the spot.
but NOT when you are sick....right.
I hope you are feeling better. I don't know what they did with all those hankies, cause it was hard for them to do all that laundry in those days.
your posts are often times very simple
yet so lovely
thanks

Rosie said...

Oh Sweetie...I am so sorry! Here dear one, I will slice you up some bananas and milk, sprinkled with a bit of vanilla sugar. Snuggle back into your cozy little nest and sleep it away.
Hey, on a happy note, we just received a TON of fabulous "spring goodness" into the shop...oh it just makes me SMILE. There's even a little turquoise in the mix...wink, wink :) Oh dearest, I miss you! Get better so we can go for tea...xoxox...Rosie

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
I hope you feel better soon dear ♥ Having a winter cold is tough... but you are right... thank goodness for tissues! Now, there are so many different kinds. Just before Christmas, I found that Puffs makes tissues infused with Vicks VapoRub! Oh they are so nice to use! I bought a box for everyone in the family! {Except Jason... he only had a carry-on bag to go back to TX :D

Your hot chocolate with peppermint ice cream looks divine!
Koralee, I just know that a Cuisinart ice cream maker is in my future ~ Do you make any lowfat ice cream recipes or frozen yogurts using the ice cream maker?

Well, I'm enjoying a few moments of peace and quiet at work and thought to enjoy some of them visiting you* It's always a JOY!
I wish you fast healing for both your cold and your poor nose!
God bless you always,
*xoxo*
~ Maria

Monica said...

I am so sorry you aren't feeling well :( And peppermint ice cream in hot chocolate???? Why didn't I ever think of that. And to think I recently just made some peppermint ice cream. I think I may have to try this for dessert soon. Please get to feeling better soon :)

Rosie said...

Hey there girlfriend! Glad to hear you are feeling up to a wee outing. YES, do drop in at the shop (so many new treasures to see), and no, unfortunately I won't be at the shop tomorrow, as Bill and I are doing a little kitchen reno...FINALLY tiled the back splash, behind the stove and are changing out the vintage chandies for a little cleaner look. I'm so excited :) But when you are feeling up to it, lets have tea.
Oh my yes, I have had the same trouble trying to sneak into Anita's kitchen...so lets just go in by the back door, shall we?
Have a happy weekend sweet friend...xoxo...R

Rosie said...

Just popped in to visit our dear girl...and when I copied her address I don't know if I gave you the entire address, so if that doesn't work, try this....."anita rivera"

Oh no! Hope you're feeling better by now, sweet Koralee...the flu is absolutely no fun at all!

It's so nice to be visiting friends again after my blog break...it was good to have a little time off, though!

Hoping your weekend is lovely, despite all the tissues, dear friend (and you're right...I can't imagine how yucky to deal with handkerchiefs all the time!)
