A sniffy Hello

A sniffy Hello from my bed! My lemon tea and the soup send greetings as well. I have been sick the entire weekend, probably caught a cold. I am constantly coughing and every part of my body is aching. I already spent the past couple of days in bed, sleeping or reading, drank tea and water and tried to let my body take care of itself. But today morning I had to get up very early to take care of the horses and stables for the first time. I felt energetic and excited, the morning air made me feel ready for a new week. The work at the stables has been fun and I already felt like a real farmer. But although I expected it to be physically stressful, my body hasn't really been recovered well enough yet, at least I felt really tired and weak after two hours of stable cleaning. But when I came home, I went to bed again for a short nap and felt much better already. I am sitting under a blanket now, eating a soup and will study some Swedish later. 

My favourite thing when I have a cold is fresh lemon and ginger tea and some flowers from the garden. They revive my mood and bring some colour and life into my room. Recently, I also fell in love with elderflower syrup which I add to the tea as a little extra flavour. It tastes like summer and makes me feel less sick immediately. What's your secret tip against the flu? 

Those days in bed are best for reading and studying. And sleeeeeping a lot! I hope I feel better tomorrow so I can work properly at the stables. Tomorrow is also the first day at the organic store and I am really excited! I hope you all had a wonderful and slow start to the week! *sneeze* Happy Monday!
