Cold ~ Cold/Flu ~ Irish Coffee

Good 30ยบ morning. Tad on the cold side and gloomy......
Yesterday the sun came out! YEAH! I went to Medford for a meeting with our JCRW President, Ruth, and a couple of the other gals... Two are VP's, Laraine is in charge of all of us Chairpeoples, Val is the Treasurer, Laura is the Calling Chairman, and I'm the Membership Chair. We are going to have a class in how to do spreadsheets..... probably the 8th of Feb. Something I have never learned.
This was the view of Mt. McLaughlin on the way into Medford
Reminds me of Mr. Fujiyama in Japan...
also called Mt. Fujisan, and Mt. Fuji.
After the meeting I ran to Costco to see if they had anymore of the chicken/sweet potato dog treats. Of course they didn't! Then to the Grange for seed and corn. Cheaper there than at Ace in town.
Home and puttered around. I found a ham in the freezer this am and it went into the crockpot with pineapple and brown sugar on it. Don't know if it will be any good...been in there a long time! If it's bad, the critters out back will eat it!
Our sunset, as usual, was awesome....

    An Oregon boy, made good, sadly died at 24.
So, seems like everyone I know has or has had a bad bad cold... sore throat, coughing, runny nose..... the usual suspects. Thought I was going to avoid it... Wasn't around Dave when he was at his worst, PatT had it, but wasn't around her, and yesterday at our meeting, Ruth shows up coughing and spewing and miserable. So................... I started getting that "throat thing, runny/tuffy dose, and sneezing like mad" ! I started in with the Zicam in the afternoon, chewable vitamin C, and herbal tea, and Musinex. In the night I took another Zicam and more vitamin C. Another Zicam this morning and "it" is still there a little, but I feel 100% better. All I have to say, if you are going out in public, take some Airborne and if you feel a cold coming on, immediately take Zicam. The cold/flu tracker says here in So. Oregon it's "moderate"
Ok, all I know. Will be getting my new Microsoft Office program today via UPS so I can learn spreadsheets. Will keep a lid on my cold. Hope you have a great Tuesday. Nuff said. Ciao.
