After the holidays I’d been feeling tired and a bit of track. I figured that that, and the severely cold weather which is unusual for us here in Portland, must be to blame. Just as I was starting to get my energy back, I suddenly felt like I had gotten hit by a truck on Saturday!
Fever, chills, violent coughing attacks made me sleep in dressed warmly in layers, yet I was still shivering as if I was outside during the ice storm. And every muscle and bone in my body let me know that they exist. Ouch!!
In addition, I didn’t check my email, WordPress Reader and all the other things I usually do. I look forward to catching up with all of your posts! 🙂
But the real test to how well I am is always whether I make my morning cup of coffee. I just had my first small cup this morning after three days without! That’s a good sign, I’m on the mend!
There are some recipes and travel posts I’ve been working on that I will finish as soon as I feel better. Before getting sick, I made a fantastic Wild Rice and Mushroom Chowder, as well as an incredibly delicious pot of spicy Cajun Black Eyed Pea Soup.
So bear with me while my kitchen is closed! Until my return you can always browse the Tasty Tuesday menu.
