I usually just try to power through, but this one got me really good! I lost my taste for pretty much everything except toast, tea, grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup.
But I do find that when I'm under the weather, taking tea in my favorite handmade mug from Red Ticking and the toast on a pretty Blue Willow ware plate makes things a bit more cheerful.
Frog Hollow Farms
And indulging in a jar of plum and nectarine preserves from Frog Hollow Farms that has been waiting in the pantry for a special occasion also went a long way toward raising my spirits -- they make the best jam ever, really!
Canadian House and Home
I have to admit, there has been many a workday morning where I've longed to just stay in bed with a cup of tea and a good read, but the truth is, it gets old after awhile.
I made it through all 300 minutes of the BBC Pride and Prejudice...
And every single Audrey Hepburn movie in our collection.
Devoured both books in The Carrie Diaries series....
Because when you feel rotten, it's nice to have old friends like Carrie Bradshaw, Holly Golightly, Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy around for comfort.
The bouquet of pretty pink peonies from Mr. H., and another from my dear friend Christina, brightened things up considerably! And being profiled on my friend Amy's blog also cheered me right up! So nice.
What's your favorite "comfort food" when you're feeling less than 100%?
Happy almost June, my friends! I'm so happy to be back on my feet again. I hope you have a wonderful week! XO
