Some TLC for you

How are you feeling, dear Reader? Are you stuck between seasons? Do you have a runny nose or a tickly throat? Have you been hit, as I have, with your first flu of the season? Do you, regardless of your age, just kinda wish maybe a little that your mother (or that loving, tender person-of-your-choice) could take care of you? I thought so.

I brought this from France for you. Honey. Miel. It’s creamy. And I’m quite sure it’s full of good, natural, anti-bacterial, bee-magic. It will give you strength. And if not strength, a heaping dose of comfort. A giant spoonful in your morning tea will do the trick. Or slathered on your toast. And if you need an extra tuck into bed at night, plop some into a steaming mug of milk and rum.

Do take care. I’ll be checking up on you in the morning.

    Honey in milk and rum? You learned that from your mother? In your dreams, dear Charlotte . . . (though the attribution IS nice). Love, Mom

  2. No! I didn’t learn it from you! I learned it from my spouse!!! Plus it’s a TINY bit of rum…only half a jigger or even less. A tablespoon. Just enough for flavor, and mostly dissipated by the heat.

  3. when i started getting a feverish cold in portland, oregon, way back late last century, someone fixed me a hot toddy-ish sort of drink: hot water, honey, bourbon, clove, cinnamon and a squirt of lemon. i slept like a baby and woke up feeling much better. must been the magic honey.
