Anyone who has been reading my blog knows that I have been regularly (more or less) drinking garlic lemonade. The way my niece told me to make it is different from what I do now. She said to crush a clove of garlic into 8 ozzies boiling water, add honey to taste, and the juice of a lemon. Sip several cups of that to either ward off or stop a cold. What I do now is put the clove of garlic and agave nectar into very warm water and add the juice of a lemon. Similar but different. I’ll have to admit it isn’t something Dr. D. would advocate. I didn’t drink any yesterday and, by this afternoon, my right tonsil (the only one I have) was feeling irritated. When I got home, I fixed a cup of garlic lemonade and drank it. I still have a little soreness but not like it was. If I could, I’d just tough it out and stay home and I may end up having to do that anyway.
Report! Bed was 10:02 pm. I exercised 20 minutes. Fat intake was 1/2 small avocado. Goals met but not really exceeded.

My friend had been out carousing last night and was feeling under the weather today. I don’t think what I have is related. Our symptoms aren’t at all the same.
When the mail person told me I had a package at the post office, I couldn’t remember ordering anything. Then it dawned on me that one of the members of the forum had said she was sending me something. I didn’t get a chance to go pick it up until mid-afternoon. It was one of those flat-rate boxes. You squeeze everything you can into the box and, no matter how much it weighs, it costs $8.95 to mail it. She had put seven one lub packages of kelp noodles in it. When we were all raving about how good they were, she had ordered a case of 24 one lub packages and ended up not liking them. That made me feel bad but I was glad to get these. There were a couple of people at the hospital who like them so I gave one person two packages and the other one, one.
This is mercifully shorter than most of my posts but I feel the need to get to bed early. I’ve done everything I need to do before I fly up so here I go. Good night!
