My favorite folks ! :)

S'more this 'n that

I'm fighting something like a cold, only it isn't contagious.  Sore throat, itchy ears, cough, etc.  I think it is allergy-related & stress-induced.  (I know i'm not contagious 'cause if i was Duane would be ill, you know, kissing before i realized this was not going away.)  I seem to come down with this "non-contagious pseudo-cold" fairly frequently.  But it has sure screwed up our weekend.

I feel like i've the attention span of a fruit fly.  I can't seem to hold my attention on anything for longer than 30 seconds.  

I don't like this version of blogger's photo thingy.  I can't move the pics around.  The top two are of when i tried to get pics of the mountains (San Gabriel) when i was driving around OC a couple of weeks ago.

The picture of the cutie above is Mrs. Mac of several blogs.  I got to meet her!!!  I was so excited.  They were at Disneyland & she took time out from her day to meet me (bought me a coffee-drink, wasn't that sweet?).  The second pic is of the two of us together.  

These last two Duane took on our way home Thursday.  These are the San Bernardino mountains.  The taller peak on the left side  is Mt. Gorgonio & it is the highest peak in So Cal at 11,503 ft.  You can't see Sugarloaf from this view.  It is on the other side of this range with a valley between it & these mountains.  But i think, considering that this is the south face of the mountains, they still have quite a lot of snow on them.  

I had been taking a number of remedies for this sinus thing, coltsfoot, & colloidal silver, & other things.  I kind of stopped because i thought they weren't helping much.  I was wrong.  Need to go take some more.  It sounds really windy outside.  We were suppose to be in OC tonight for a BD party but didn't make it because of my "cold."  I'm sorry for that for Duane really wanted to go.  I encouraged him to go without me, but he didn't want to.  If i'm complaining too much, i don't mean to.  I know it isn't very serious, but i don't feel very well.

I have similar symptoms so I'm home from church today spending a quiet morning at home. I hope you feel better!

I hope you feel better, you're not complaining too much - you don't feel well! I have been working my neti pot overtime (buy stock in Morton's kosher salt and Arm & Hammer baking soda, I'm going to up their profits), it helps most of the time. I need to phone or IM you sometime when you are on Facebook to let you know what is going on with me and get some naturopathic advice. Nothing horrible, just bothersome. Hope you feel better soon, and you love us out here in the blogosphere enough to put up purdy pictures even when feeling crummy. Mwah!

Hi Kathryn ... nice pictures of the mountains ... it was great meeting you too. I made a little post about our meeting over at my 'Sisterhood Of The Traveling Scarf' blog. I hope your symptoms go away soon. You'll have to read about my special medicine for warding off a cold ( it really works 9 times out of 10 if taken at the first sign of a scratchy throat. It was a beautiful day in SoCal to fly. The air was clear and the mountains were snow covered. Get well soon.

Kathryn said...

LOL, Mrs. Mac. We don't have anything like that in the house, but i did have a little brandy at my ILs on Thursday pm. Guess i didn't use enough. ;)

Oooohhh how lovely are the mountains around you.

Pray your cold is better

It's always exciting to meet up with fellow bloggers, eh? It's such a strange world, this internet, when written words can connect two individuals in such a way that once they meet face-to-face it's as if they have known each other forever! So happy you got to meet up with your blogger friend, Mrs. Mac.
