My Annual Cold
Every year it seems I get a cold or a touch of the flu or something like that. It starts with a sore throat and goes on from there into congestion or runny nose. My system seems to sag and I feel tired and try to dial back the pace of my daily activities.

I eat less and the cold remedies seem to dry me up inside as I sneeze and cough and feel otherwise miserable. A bout with the flu usually lasts about ten days. Despite feeling bad there are things I have to do like put wood in the outdoor wood stove, feed the cats and walk the dogs.

The days are short this time of year and I usually walk 2 miles, more or less, each day. The dogs make sure I perform that ritual and if I am not up and dressed by 9 O'clock, my Labra-Doodles are on the bed barking and breathing down on me.

My class at NHA here at WDC is going strong and I have 8 students this term. The Workshop is doing well but some of the other classes are suffering from a lack of attendance. I think the Headmistress is looking at options.
