Crazy Weather

Now I know where I live that the weather here changes constantly but seriously it's December and yesterday the high was like a warm 74.  But then wouldn't you know the later it got the colder it was getting and it dropped to high 30's last night and right now the temp. is 39.  I'm glad it's cold again because it should be, but the only thing that sucks is that last night I started getting a sore throat.  Anyway I've been gargling salt water since last night, but if there is some other home remedy that y'all know that works please let me know because I hate, hate, hate having a sore throat.  Other than that I plan on having a good day and trying not to let it get to me.  Hope all of you are having a good morning.

I would LOVE 74!! Today it is 50 here. But Saturday night it was 25 and we had an ice storm. Prince Charming and I were out enjoying a few cocktails after his Company Christmas party and it went PITCH BLACK.

Hole in the wall bars are scary on their own. Add total darkness, 25 drunk strangers, and a bartender who won't serve beer in the dark...and you've got a whole new breed of crazy ;-)

Hope you have great day!

I would kill for temps in the 70's. Right now we've got highs in the 20's and 60 mph winds.
I want to move to ARIZONA! My father in law was complaining about it being in the 80s last week. Ugh.
I hope you feel better!

My husband said something to me about taking honey, the darker the better. I don't believe it, but if you try it and it works, let me know.

It's cooooold here today, and I'm never cold. That usually means it's really that cold or I'm getting sick, and judging by the way my chest feels this morning it could be the latter of the two. :(

Sorry, no home remedies here... If you have Listerine, gargle that, because it has a high alcohol content, so you'll disinfect your throat, basically. That's always what I do and it works great. And leaves your mouth minty fresh too! :)

It was only 32 degrees here this morning, but it'll be 68 by the end of the day. On Thursday? It's supposed to be 79.

I'm not complaining though, because it means a tiny gas bill!

I like herbal (Celestial Seasonings Peppermint or Echincaea are favorites) tea with 1Tbsp lemon juice and 1Tbsp honey. Soothes the throat. I'm really sick right now, too, so I can empathize. Hope you feel better soon!
