Under the weather

Well, that title is a bit misleading as it is a glorious early fall day here in Israel... blue skies, wispy clouds here and there... warm air with just a hint of chill.

But am I out enjoying it with my family?  Noooooooo.

I can't put my finger on any particular reason why I always seem to get sick on my days off (Friday or Shabbat)... but there it is.

I woke up this morning with a headache, stuffy nose and a nice assortment of aches and pains.

Now that I've vacuumed and done sponja (washed the floors), I am going to crawl back into bed to see if I can shake this thing with a serious dose of sleep.

I'll let you know on Sunday how it all worked out.

Shabbat Shalom.

Refua shelaima to Bogner and John, and anybody else who is feelin' poorly. May your Shabbat be a tonic for you; may Sunday be filled with strength and purpose.

Yuck. Feel better. Sounds like a virus. Email me all your symptoms if you want any advice.

May the Sabbath Queen erase your aches and dry your snot.

We seem to be experiencing the same symptoms over in these parts too (i.e., up all NIGHT with son with a very high fever.)

Are they giving out Flu shots yet? Funny, you can get a flu shot at almost every grocery and drugstore if you are over 9 years old, but the pediatricians around here can't seem to get any shipments for our kids. Hmm - what's up with that?

Refuah shelaima,

I'm just getting over same thing myself, so I know how you feel. Refuash sheleimah and Shabbat Shalom!

So was this whole post an answer to my question, of "How am I supposed to make it through the day without a photo Friday whatever edition it would have been?"

Refua Shleima

Feel better, Dave. Shabbat Shalom.

Awww... feel better soon! At least it's sunny where you are, we got snow this afternoon... O_o

Feel better--I just finished antibiotics because mine went into bronchitis a couple of weeks ago.....you get it on Fri & Sat because that's when your adrenaline ebbs and your body collapses. In the States I ONLY got sick on weekends, chaggim and on the first day of vacation....somehow your body knows when its okay to give up the fight and collapse...

Hope you're feeling better. I hear that a drink of hot lemon juice mixed with honey does wonders. Any other liquids added are purely for show. :)

Refuah sh'laimeh, Trep ...

Hey, have you ever had a gogl mogl [pronounced guggle muggle]?

My Aunt used to feed them to me whenever I got the sniffles as a kid ... just a bit of warm milk 'n' honey, and maybe a little mashke to take the edge off.

Some recipes call for a raw egg, and some for a little butter thrown in. Whatever tickles your fancy. They're really tasty.

G-d only knows if they actually work.

Thank you to everyone who left comments and/or sent emails filled with sympathy. Being sick sucks. Not only that, but I suck at it. My wife can attest to the fact that I am the biggest baby on the planet when I'm sick. Not exactly what she signed up for when we got married. :-)

When you do sponja, do you use a sponja? Or a moppa?

Here in the States, a lot of folks have switched to the swiffa.

Feeling instant kinship. I am now where you were then...hope to read the October 22nd entry and find you fully recovered...
