Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Cold and Colds

It's been freakishly cold here in northern Utah the past week or so.
Dry, cold air and a high that holds the smog close to the earth for all
of us to breathe.
Then there's the altitude.  We live at about 4500 feet.  Not as much
oxygen in our air as in sea level air.
The mister and I caught a bad cold (flu?) right before Christmas.
We slept through most of the festivities.  Coughing and fevers and aches and
more coughing.  Which turned into bronchitis.
FINALLY feeling a little better.
But still coughing.
Sometimes I need something like this to happen so that I don't take
my usually good health for granted.
Lessons come in all shapes and sizes.

It has been so cold and that has meant indoor recess all week! I hope things clear up soon and get a little warmer. We have had some pesky illness, too. Must come with the bad air.

Oh, I'm sorry that you guys got sick. No fun!!
I've heard that the gomboo is going around.

We too have been suffering with the bitter cold temperatures.
Our elevation is about 5800, and we live against the mountains.
I usually love it, and take the good with the bad.
However....this is too extreme.

Hope you continue to regain your health, and stay as warm as possible.

Warm wishes....

Kansas has suffered from the colds/flu, too... you are not alone! We are just getting over it here, and glad to see the end of it!

There sure is a lot of that going around Sue - sorry that you caught it! I'm rarely sick either, and when I am it make me realize how fortunate I am!

Sorry to hear about your sickness! I know what you've been through, I just got over it myself!
