YEP it’s WINTER!!!

This morning I was up at 5:30 with my husband…..I get up with him everyday….even though I work from home and have the luxury of sleeping in….I don’t.  I love that time together with him before he goes to work…..Coffee and Chit Chat before he starts the day…..

For the last few days I have been sick….flu bug….common cold…who knows…but under the weather to say the least!!   Coughing….Sneezing….no Fever(thumbs up) but body aches…and as luck would have it we have had snow upon snow for 3 days straight! BLAH!!!(tongue sticking out)

I am a trooper….while my husband gets ready for work…I go out and shovel the driveway….clean the car off of snow….start it up so it’s nice and toasty……that’s just me….today was no different…only that it was minus 26 outside….what the heck???

How is it that cold?  Yep It is officially winter….damn cold….I hibernate when it’s winter….snuggle up in front of the TV…watch movies with my daughter and hubby….all weekend that is what we did…as all of us were sick…House full of sickies!!!

We got lots of good movies in this weekend….great family time….and now everyone seems to be feeling better…HURRAY!!!!

We are all back to normal and the deep freeze comes today……the wind chill was sooooo cold this morning that my nose hairs froze!!!….That’s crazy!!!!!!!…….I hope it warms up today…..and at least the sun is out…..haven’t seen for days……we need our vitamin D….the body craves it in the winter……I can hear my mum now…..”Rachael you need your vitamin D……you need Echinacea !”…which I keep forgetting to take….”It builds your immune system you know?”……I am now taking OMEGA 3  and Glucosamine for my joints……along with my other daily vitamins…..

The Moral here for me is always take your vitamins…..take your supplements….take your medicine…..what ever you have to do to keep your resistance up and those viruses away……I may not like the cold….. but I have to be out in it……. the best possibly defense against the BLAHS of winter….BUNDLE BUNDLE BUNDLE….when you go out(I do!!)…..stay warm…….drink plenty of fluids(I sure did this past weekend)…..and TAKE YOUR ECHINACEA!!!

STAY WARM…..it’s COLD OUTSIDE!!!
