Getting Comfort Inspiration

Now I know why I was lacking ambition to begin the New Year.  It started on Friday.  I am not sure if it the flu or a bad cold.  It's just that feverish, achy feeling, with a stuffed nose and a bit of cough.  The feelings that makes me want to snuggle in bed watching Winnie-the-pooh episodes with a cup of tea and with a coloring book and crayons.

What is it when I get sick?  No matter how old I am...I get comfort from those comfy cozy things that I remember from my youth. At the moment I feel like the heffalumps and woozles are dancing in my head.

Prescription to myself:

Get comfy cozy in bed with lots of pillows
Drink a hot cup of tea
Browse a stack of inspirational books
Watch a few Winnie-the-Pooh episodes
Get plenty of rest
Drink lots of fluids
Make a list of my Blessings

While I am nursing this stuffy head, I thought I would share some CUTENESS inspiration. We can all do with a cup of CUTENESS from time to time.

CUTENESS:  Something that provokes you to immediately say "Awwwa"

I created this one during the holidays.   My new Inspiration board on Pinterest.

Echinacea, my dear, stat! (If you are not allergic.) I must take the stuff from October through spring with my grandsons around. They catch everything going and are so willing to share. I can avoid nearly everything in the way of colds and flu this way. It's great stuff!

Hope that you feel better...I'm off to see what you've been playing at Pinterest.

I hope you're feeling better! Hot tea and a coloring book with a brand new box of 48 crayons sounds wonderful to me!!!

Ah, Karen. I hope you get lots of comfort and feel much better very soon.

You always inspire me. I'm trying to get inspired to make an "I've Been Featured On Pink Saturday" button, but my brain is not cooperating.
