[Um, it's still Saturday on the west coast.] I've had a very lazy day because of my being under the weather. One significant thing did happen, though: The cats finally discovered the footed wooden bucket-like thing that I bought specifically as a cat bed about a year and a half ago. They have been curled up together in it all day. I could not be prouder.
I also went to Snow Farm for their seconds/samples sale, where I bought nothing, and the Williamsburg general store, where I also bought nothing. CJ cooked me a chicken and heated up some tasty butternut squash soup and a loaf of bread and made a salad. It was very tasty, even though I feel kinda gross at all times due to the cold.
New to this cold: As an experiment, I am going to see if NOT cutting out dairy makes any difference at all. So far it hasn't. I was taught that drinking milk during a cold made you more mucousy, but a few people in the past couple of years have told me that that's bullshit. Please share your thoughts on the matter in the comments below.

Years ago, my mother told me milk makes you more mucousy during a cold too. She then dropped the charge more recently, for what that's worth.

It's bullshit. I have all the data, trust me. We've had as many endless rounds of gloppy snotty grossness as we've had of nadda. No matter what. Cheese, milk, you name it. (And I feel qualified to comment, having been through The Ear Wars, which were often lost on the shores of You Can't Have Dairy, Honey!)
