Okay! Enough is enough!

I keep thinking I am feeling better and then that dreaded sore throat strikes again. I had what I thought was a pretty good day yesterday. We had company for dinner...I felt good. This morning I woke with such a sore throat again, it makes me think that I am never going to shake this bug. We had a nice meal with friends yesterday, but I didn't take time to document it with photos...
How's your imagination?

Can you imagine my soup tureen filled with this?
It was pretty yummy.
Ok, how about this?

See that big platter? It was filled with onion and mushroom roasted pork loin. Add some sage stuffing, fresh cheese rolls, marinated greek salad, hot mulled apple cider, assorted pickles and relishes, and a few other sides and don't forget good friends to share it with.

Tuck in some fresh flowers
( I couldn't find candy corn to put in my little fall colored dish; had to settle for gourmet jelly beans..what hardship eh?)

add a few seasonal decor items

a beautiful view from every window

Now that I rethink this, I am so blessed and thankful to have what I have I really shouldn't be complaining of a simple sore throat. Shame on me!

The meal sounds delicious and the view --spectacular! I love the way that glass pumpkin glows. I started with the sore throat on Thursday night. I went to UFO on sat, felt better and then was up half the night with it Sat. night. Take it easy.

Wendy, Here's something you can try for your throat. A nurse friend told me about something called Sterisol. It's found on the shelf at grocery store or pharmacy- in same area as mouthwashes. It's a red liquid, a 500 ml. bottle which if I recall was around $7.00 or $8.00. Not cheap but it works well. You can use it alone or mix 50-50 with peroxide. Rinse, gargle and spit- don't swallow.

Your post reminds me of that wonderful feast Peter Pan has with the lost boys.

hope you are getting better… sore throat is not a lot of fun its just uncomfortable and difficult to swallow.

usually, i would take the Nim Jiom Cough Syrup ( ) which has a thick consistency formulation. it coats the throat and includes herbs that are particularly good for that application.

i hope it works on you as well.
