I brought home something unintended from the craft show: a bad cold.

I usually swear by Cold-Eeze. They are magic! For me, they can fend off colds altogether, but you have to use them early.

It hadn't rained in Stone Mountain lately, and I naively assumed that the reason I had a stuffy nose was due to all the dust I'd inhaled over the course of four days spent outdoors.

Until my throat started hurting and I got a fever. I really should have known better, especially considering that the same thing happened to me last year.

So since I feel too crummy to go out and take pictures, here's one from a few weeks ago, of some of the eggs from our chickens. I love it when we get speckled ones! Yesterday there was a decidedly beige one too.

I haven't slept well in several nights, but I did have a good dream... I dreamed that a lady came to the craft show and bought ALL the soap. I woke up and thought how great that would be. Then I fell back asleep and had the same dream again, except this time it was Stephen Duffy who bought all the soap. Cool.

Hubby has the same cold, only without the fever. As far as I know, he hasn't dreamed about any pop stars though.

Point of Logic: How can you know that the medicine has fended off a cold entirely? How can you know that it worked in preventing a specific cold and not that you simply didn't contract a cold?

Love those eggs. Sorry you're feeling down. September has not been a good month for you so far.

The eggs are just beautiful. Take care of yourselves. Take some echinacea, it really really works, even once the cold has taken hold. And more nice dreams

Those egg colors are so soft and pastel. Really pretty.
I sure hope you start to feel better soon. Lots of rest, juice, and good dreams should do the trick.

Beautiful picture of the eggs. Did the Easter Bunny leave them? : ) So pretty.

Chicken and Sausage Gumbo. The spices will clear your head and flush the offending germs out. If that doesn't work, at least it really tastes good.

Oh, and drink plenty of Florida orange juice.

That picture is exactly why I ordered white egg layers - it makes the green and brown ones look even better!!!! Feel better!

Pablo, I know what you mean! I can't ever know for sure. But if I start taking Cold-Eeze at the first sign of a scratchy throat, I don't ever get a cold. I just have the sore throat for a day and then it goes away. It might have been something else - there's really no way to tell. But I figure it doesn't hurt to take the Cold-Eeze anyway. Except that it makes everything taste bad.

Thanks for all the suggestions y'all.

Oh Shannon we lost one of our leghorns, after a long spell of no chicken disappearances. So now there's only one left! :(

ColdEese is wonderful.

I also suggest Airborne.
