Things That Make Me Happy When I'm Sick

eating watermelon...
and if it's cut into hearts
and has a bit of french vanilla yogurt
so much the better...

wearing fuzzy socks
and a kitty at my feet...

my electric blanket
turned on high...

Banjo curled up beside me
on my bed...

a stack of new magazines to
look at and to read...


And you?

Any 'must have' comforts that
make you happy when you're sick?

Watermelon cut into hearts....just lovely!

Must haves for me-

Fuzzy socks, purring kitties, good book, warm fire, quiet kids, Jim making dinner :)

lovely things Catherine!
not so lovely that you are sick.
hope you feel better soon.
I love my electric blanket too & hot showers.
happy weekend ♥

Lesley said...

Catherine, I hope you are feeling much better now!
I always want to curl on the sofa wrapped in a quilt with a book. I'd love to cuddle up to a kitty but Luna is not really the cosy kind :) And I always want to eat curry- the spicier the better.

I hope you feel better soon!!

I like my electric blanket, my dogs all on the bed, lots to read and the phone with the ringer turned off!!

Brian said...

I sure hope you're feeling all better soon! That electric blankie sure looks wonderful!

S. Etole said...

Those magazines look dream worthy ... be well soon!

I'm sending tons of healing vibes your way Catherine, right now, do you feel these coming yet >>> *^*^*^*^*^ . I love love the idea of the heart shaped water melons. Magazines and one single beautiful flower on the tray do make me feel better. Hmm, perhaps I should be sick once again, it's been way too long ^_~

I love when the kitties play nursemaid. There is nothing better than laying in bed or on the couch with them at your side. Okay, so they are basically sleeping and copping your heat--it's the thought that counts!

I had a hysterectomy a few years back and those two kitties laid with me for WEEKS!

I love the way you sorround yourself with beauty. Watermelon cut into hearts is the best I've ever seen.

Thank goodness I have not been sick for a long time. But, nothing like having the kitties to cuddle with, magazines and/or good books (misteries are my choice) and a hot bowl of soup for lunch.

Take care and get well soon!!

Hi Catherine, I think that I don't need more than you need, perhaps water and soms asperine so I can sleep a lot to get beter soon,
I wish the best and hope youre feeling better every day.

Watermelon hearts? I absolutely would expect that from you! You are always surrounded by so much love! I love hearts and have as many around me as much as I can too but I've never thought of watermelon hearts before!

When I don't feel when I crawl into bed with Angel between my feet, Isabella laying on my belly and Sadie laying beside me. It makes me relax so much to have them around.

Ann said...

Watermelon cut into little hearts, that is so cute. I just want to know if you had to do that yourself or was there someone who was sweet enough to do it for you?
When I'm sick I like a hot cup of tea, my comfy pajamas and a warm blanket

Just Who I Am said...

When i'm sick i need my husband to bring me some tea and asperine and some light food.Lovely watermelon hearts and you have very sweet company.hope you feel better soon.
Love Elisabeth

Cats curled up in bed with me and magazines, does the trick every time. Get well soon Catherine XO.

Catherine, I am catching up on your blog and was and am so sorry to hear that you've not been feeling well!! I also admire how through it all, you've managed to put up some very nice posts that have made ME feel better! :-)))

I do hope you continue to pamper yourself back to health and your family does too!

My 'must haves' for when I'm not feeling well are clean sheets, the remote and lots of sympathy! :-))

Feel better, and know that I'm sending warm healing thoughts in your direction!

Tamago said...

Oh they are all so lovely! I want the watermelon cute into hearts!
When I am sick, my kitties's purring makes me very happy :-) If I have a fever, ice cream will work! Some extra sweets are okay if we are sick, righ?

CatherineLovesRoses said...

Hi Catherine! Just stopping by to see if you are feeling better...
For me, cats are the nurses in the world ;) Their purrrs are so calming...I see Banjo is enjoying your "flu days" so much!!

Hope you would get better very soon my dear friend!!!

Stacey Dawn said...

Oh my goodness - watermelon cut into hearts - not that's the sweetest ever!!

I like my favorite cozy fleece blanket and hot tea when I'm sick. Plus Doogie on my lap and a good movie to watch! ;o) Hope you feel better now!

ratieh said...

things that make me happy when i'm sick are....eating a lot of chocolate, watching TV and movies.. =))

Snappy Di said...

When sick I like lots of blankets. One on the sofa, one on the chair, lots on the bed, etc.

Clara said...

Soup and a cuddly blanket will do it for me....oh yes, and a crocheted hat. The hat always makes me feel extra cozy and signifies I'm sick. When I've feeling better, off comes the hat! I hope you feel better soon...try the hat idea.

YHOSIE said...

Those sound very comforting even when well. The watermelon hearts and yogurt is such a cool idea and so pretty.

Jaime said...

Those adorable little watermelon hearts are singing to me right now...sick, and looking for any kind of comfort. I wish my bunny cuddled with me the way Banjo cuddles with you.
