Who gets sick in June? After surviving the coldest winter on record with nary a sniffle, I'm sick now? When it's close to 80 out, and the farmers' market is beckoning? Really?
Usually, a little zinc therapy does the trick. The minute I feel a little tickle in my throat, I start on the zinc and those germs do a 180.
Unfortunately, I had to pull out the big guns this time . . .
I've found that the original Werther's hard candies are the best for soothing a sore throat, and this Zevia ginger ale is a nice alternative to Vernor's. It is zero calorie, but made with stevia, an all-natural sweetener. If you're not familiar with Vernor's, it was an original, made-in-Michigan ginger ale that was our go-to when I was growing up and anyone was sick.
But, of course, a big cuppa is the most comforting thing when you're sick. And who better to be with you when you're in need of comfort but Pooh?
I usually prefer black teas, but a soothing herbal with some honey is called for today.
Perfect Peach with a perfect peach . . .

Three cheers for my husband who did laundry, went to the grocery store, did some yard work, and made dinner. Meanwhile, I camped out here . . .
I really can't complain.
