I had a nice plan for today. After breakfast I was hoping to visit a local tea celebration. It is supposed to be the biggest Tea Festival in Canada open for two days. I went last year and simply loved it.
This morning I seem to have come down with a bug and I have to stay home. I never know when I need to .... be home. (If you catch my drift.)
I could have food poisoning, but nobody else is complaining about food side effects. Just me and my... tummy, yes let's just say it's my tummy.
I have a new book to read, I have lounged in a bubble bath to enjoy the warmth and fragrance. Aaahh the simple things in life. I am home and it is quiet and peaceful, albeit, somewhat unproductive.
I will have to be content to get some dishes washed, a bit of laundry accomplished and use the day to rest and recreate. I am so bone-weary!
Today I do miss visiting the city's tea demonstrations, but aside from that I do realize that taking a day to get well is a luxury that I do not often reward myself with. sigh. Purhaps the day is not really a waste after all.
Imagine if you will, me sitting on a couch, lap throw across my knees with a book about a Victorian gal who wouldn't follow the rules and norms or her time. Maybe I'll turn on an electric fireplace for the ambience, but I will keep the place quiet and placid.
Time to brew some peppermint tea to calm the digestion. Won't you do the same?
