Please Excuse Me


It got me.  
 
The flu hit on Wednesday.  I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
 
I'm just starting to feel normal again so please excuse me while I convalesce.

I'm pretty sure it's tea tree and it just makes me happy.

  1. Get well soon! I got a little stomach bug last week but it was minor and over in about 12 hours. It still bummed me out cuz I can go for years without getting sick.

  8. Poor baby. So not fair. Bet you've dropped some LBS tho'. Silver lining?

    I was so put off by my last flu I actually got a flu shot this year.

    Didn't know if I would live thru another one.

    Is that how you feel?

  9. Steve,

    Feel better soon. In Sweden I would drink hot milk with whiskey + raw honey before bedtime to get rid of nasty bugs! Very old school!

  11. I'm so sorry that you're sick. It takes a lot out of you, and whole days are lost.

    That tea tree is so pretty!

  13. Guess I checked in on you too early! Damn. I sympathize. Like Jane, I got a flu shot after getting H1N1 two years ago on Valentine's Day. Couldn't lift my head all week. Don't push it... never pays to push it.
    Glad you're on the mend though.

  15. Sorry you are sick. This year's flu is not cute at all. (Next year a shot, perhaps?) We'll take that as an eligible flower for the house - someone's house!

    Cheers,

  21. Get your rest and take it easy. Don't worry - we'll be here when you come back.

  22. Oh no! So sorry to hear that. Be careful with your recovery. You think you are feeling better and do a little too much and before you know it you're feeling lousy again. Get plenty of rest and take it easy!

  24. Oh Steve. When you feel better - go to two spoonfuls of honey a day, it will keep your immune system up and you will be smelling those flowers soon.

    Salute (to your health)

  25. I hope you feel better very soon, Steve. In the meantime, have lots of rest, and I recommend chicken soup and drinking warm lemon juice with honey...actually I recommend those even if you are not sick.
    Best...Victoria

  32. Whiskey in hot water with honey and lemon, Steve! Keep tucked up, music, a good book, idle thoughts. Be consoled that it's quite the best time of year to be in bed all day! /:-) Rx.

    Hope you're feeling better...you should have been here the last few days...you could have sat in the backyard listening to the birds and enjoying the sunshine and 80 degree weather :)

  35. I am so sorry to hear of this, Steve. Do continue to rest until get your strength back.
    No need for apology. I have been most fortunate so far to have escaped this monster flu and for the first time ever did get a flu shot.

  38. Hoping for your speedy recovery. Get well soon.

  39. Oh dear, I hope you're feeling much better soon. I swear by flu shots (knock on wood). Be sure not to rush into things once you're feeling better, give your bod a break to recoup.
    On another note, to get your mind back onto that lovely pic, I think that photo is of a Leptospermum, indeed called a tea tree in Australia. http://www.anbg.gov.au/leptospermum/index.html
