S is for ...Sick

Ever wonder why it is so hard to win Solitaire?


What ... S was last week? ... okay seriously, we are all sick here ... well that kind too, but really sick with like a nasty virus ... sore joints ... completely stuffed up ... exhausted ... sore throats ... you know that kind of sick.

So I just don't have the energy to do my Alphabe-Thurdsay post ... but because i am aiming for a perfect attendance award here goes ...

Sometimes the game glitches ....

T is for talk ... which i love to do ... but more than talk, i love to listen ... and listen actively ... you know, the kind of listening that requires one to focus on only the speaker ... not the surrounding buildings, shoes in the window, blossoms on the tree (tree is a t word)

T is also for tea ... which i love ... but i am a total snob when it comes to tea ... My tea of choice is a blend that an the old tea company Murchie's Tea & Coffee used to blend. This tea was never made for sale in their fine establishments ... it was a house tea ... and named for the Kentish-Rankin household (several generations ago.) When we would go to order it, Murchies would pull out a very old and worn recipe card and they would then blend the tea by the pound for us. When my parents left town, they were able to get a copy of the recipe... So we all still have it blended for us today ...


and when it does glitch, it refuses to let you win ... thank gawd for freecell ... (sick humour)

T is also for tired ... which I am ... and I think that's all i can manage for today. I apologize for not responding to comments ... and I might not get to leaving many comments this round ... my Temperature is a little high and I'm just not up to it.

This post has been brought to you by the letter T and Jenny Matlock’s incredibly fabulous Alphabe-Thursday meme … go visit her blog links to some interesting and amusing T posts!

Peace, Love & Paper ~ Jo

I love to hate solitaire for hours! My relationship with tea is not so deep, black and plain!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

My husband loves to play computer solitaire!

Sorry you are sick. I had a 24 hour stomach bug last week when I was in Colorado visiting my son and his family, and I thought I would die as I felt so bad, so I can really sympathize with you at how bad you must feel right now. The only thing that makes me feel better is lots of sleep and rest -- hope you can do both!

Feel better soon!

Sue said...

Get better soon my friend..I am fighting the bug off...hopefully

If you have not already joined my Tea Party I urge you to do it now. I think some Twinnings Afternoon tea could help ease your symptoms as well as mint tea. They are both delicious. Love your blog.

Feel better soon. Nothing a little tea and a few hands of solitaire can't fix, right?
I'm tired too, but it's summer and I'm running kids everywhere in the 100 degree AZ heat.
Thanks for your comment today. There needs to be a few of us left teaching responsibility to these kids!

Dear Jo,
I hope you are feeling better soon. Clever trick to write an S-word. Silly! You do have great T-words! I love tea too!
Frankly, I could have also chosen "tired" as a T-word! I could just write "Amen" to your whole post! Sometimes life is impractical and difficult!
My very best wishes to you,
Anna

Cheryl said...

I can't believe you posted something so fun when you were feeling so awful. I hope all of you are better now.

My grandmother considered herself a tea snob. It had to be black tea or nothing. I used to buy expensive black tea when she visited. When we started having to care for her, I was a little freaked out wondering how I was going to find her tea. Turns out all it was Lipton black. Gah!
