Cold comforts

We're still sick around here. I can't believe it. There has been sickness floating around here for 2 weeks working towards 3. blgh. I keep hoping Boo will hold out and not join the misery.

I thought I share a hot drink mix that I find comforting and possibly healing when faced with colds.

Russian Tea Mix
2 cups Tang mix
3 oz Lemonade mix (I did about 3+ Tablespoons of it)
1/3 C sugar
1/2 t  ground cloves
1 t cinnamon

Mix up it up- store in an airtight container and it should last you for a very long time. Supposedly 3 teaspoons to 1 cup of water (but I like more, I think).

Another thing that I'm finding comforting is boiling a pot of water. I threw in a cinnamon stick and some whole cloves. It makes the water a nasty color but it seems comforting...especially in this dry air to have some warm steam in the home.

Hope you are all avoiding the January sickies and blues. (I really do not favor really is a bummer month.)

Add some orange slices and a bay leaf to your water. It is delightful.
