Tea with lemon and honey

It is delicious, which is a good thing, since I've been drinking buckets of it (almost literally) over the past few days to try to help my throat.

Although M rolled her eyes at me about it in that loud way that teens have, there are actual medicinal properties to the tea, honey and lemon, and they work well together to help your immune system and to soothe and heal the throat. And at the very least, they do no harm. In my case, it seems to be working!

I am back to being hoarse, rather than completely voiceless, and I am continuing to rest my voice as much as possible - not hard to do today when the kids are with their dad and I'm spending the day alone - but I rather expect it to prove a bit more of a challenge tonight, when I pick M up and take her to the Mat Kearney/Owl City concert in Philly.

Still, it'd be nice to have some sort of voice when I go to the tai chi club picnic tomorrow afternoon, so I will try to be monastically silent amid the crowd tonight, in hopes that it works out.

Kelly! have you been to the doctor? I think this is too long for laryngitis.

Hmm . . . You may be right. Jenn Hubbard emailed me about strep, since evidently it's going around. My voice is actually improving, though - still if it's not back in full by Monday morning, I'll make an appointment. Just because you said so!

Hope you have a wonderful time at the concert (it sounds like a fabulous lineup!) and feel better soon!

Mat Kearney was fabulous live, and Adam Young (Owl City) was quite the performer - and played for just under 2 hours, which is really impressive these days!

tea is always good, as is lemon and honey. I'm glad you're starting to feel better :) I drink a ton of tea when I'm sick too. Usually Mint with lots of other stuff.

My M is a HUGE fan of mint tea, be it hot or iced.

Thanks for the well wishes - and love the doggie icon!

That's Kira, my little girl.

Mint is wonderful :)

LOL at the rolling of the eyes. Kids! What do they know?
I get laryngitis nearly every time I catch cold and for me- a total talker - it's a fate worse than death! I hope you've gotten a bit of yours back by now!

My voice is almost back - I don't have full vocal range back yet, but at least I have something approximating a voice.

And yeah - I talk out loud to myself a lot, and was disgruntled when I couldn't do that - or sing along with the radio!
