Week Two Reading

The flu felled our entire family. We are on week two and though still sneezing, coughing etc. we feel better. In fact we feel able to read again. What do you read when you're sick? I think your tastes change and you want something softer and lighter.

My husband selected a Sister Carol O'Marie book called Murder at the Monks Table. In these novels Sister Mary Helen will solve murders faster than the police. And I selected Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince to read.

Hopefully by next week we will have reduced our kleenex consumption and be reading something harder edged. I hope so and hope you stay well.

Hope you are soon feeling better, Kathy.

What I love to do when I am poorly, is watch my favourite films. I will put on both Sabrina films, the one that starred Audrey Hepburn is my favourite. Or I will watch Witness and drool, sniffing all the time, at Harrison Ford. Lastly, I am certain to watch Casablanca. The best way for me is to seek some romance, then I always perk up a little.

Thank you for reminding me of movies. I like Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth

Oh my goodness, how could I forget that one. Yes P and P with delightful Colin Firth has to go on when I am feeling blue.

I hope you're truly on the mend by now! I've heard the flu is really making people miserable this year. Yuk!

When I'm under the weather I usually go for a mystery. What am I saying? I usually go for a mystery even when I'm feeling fine! *G*

I also do what Margaret does. I don't often watch television but when I'm feeling ill I pop in a DVD or two. I try and watch something that will make me laugh. :)
