My normal "cure-all" for things that are not going to kill me and do not include a high fever or altered level of consciousness (nurse speak for confusion), is extra rest, lots of fluids, regular doses of ibuprofen, ginger ale if nausea is involved, and hot tea if symptom include cough/sore throat/cold.
Today tulips were added to the list when they were spotted at the grocery store.
Because though the lemon/ginger hot tea was working for me, it didn't seem like enough.
Tulips are good for whatever ails you. You can't help but feel better when you look at them. The spring-like table runner didn't hurt either in my estimation. But only with the pink jar of tulips on top of it. On it's own, it didn't have the same effect.
