A kind email from Jane reminded me that it is Monday and there is no new blog post. It is very unMarie, she said.
She's right. The earth stood still.
It's been quite a week and culminated in a very sore throat which had me whispering to Vince yesterday inbetween drinking gallons of hot ginger and thyme tea, typing furiously away at a project, and sipping chicken soup laced with powdered ancho peppers. Then I took some time off to watch an instant movie and Netflix promptly crashed. Oh, universe. So I was forced to watch the minutely tedious Andromeda Strain, one of the few titles Netflix was able to offer while rebooting their system. I tried Precious, but that was far too much reality and way too close to home. I chose the bug from outer space.
I am now going to bed, with more ginger and thyme tea: slice a quarter of a cup of fresh ginger, and pour a cup of boiling water over it. Add a handful of fresh thyme and steep for five minutes before drinking. I sweeten mine with some chestnut honey.
I'll take my laptop with me...I promised a malva pudding recipe.
