I bet you sharp Cozy Chicks readers and fans can tell what I'm about to say. Yes. . .you guessed it. I've caught the 2nd version of the Winter Flu. What a bother! This time I caught it from my dear friend and cleaning lady, Alma. She was at my house this past Wednesday and had caught the Flu herself, so she was sneezing and all that.
Well, I was not about to tell Alma to leave. She's a kind, smart gal who's been with me for years. Over 12 years now And her family depends on her earnings. So I pay her more than most of her other clients because I value her.
This past Sunday night I "came down with the Flu." That particular expression I learned from my dear Virginia grandmother Gertrude who lived with my mother and me as I was growing up in Arlington, Virginia. She was born in 1890, and boy oh boy, did she have stories about what life was life in the United States in those days. I've posted about her before or put up pictures, so I will definitely post about her again. Meanwhile, I'm going to continue to relax on my family room sofa, read, and watch movies on my TV, and have a drink from this giant bottle of Coca Cola that daughter Melissa brought over yesterday. :)
