Sick Day

It got me. I have succumbed. The dreaded cold. It’s mostly in my head (sniffle, cough), but my body is protesting too. I got the “must-dos” tackled and now it’s tea, soup and sleep for me. I’m really hoping if I rest hard I’ll feel better tomorrow.

Sometimes it seems to me that you can’t throw a rock without hitting a Coach. Personal coach, Life coach, career coach, whatever, you know what I’m talking about. For some reason people are willing to trust that anyone who has gone out and achieved something for...

Sunday Sick Day

It's winter and I've been making soup. I've never thought of myself as a soup person, but I've been really into soup lately. My love is sick. He's been fighting something off for a few days, but it hit him pretty hard today. So, I made us some chickpea noodle soup,...
