Summer Colds are Totally the Worst

Today is the glorious flowering of the seed of a head cold that was planted over the weekend, and as such, I feel like the bottom of a shoe.

Combine this sad state of affairs with the fact that after our trip to Baltimore and the push to use up all our vegetables that preceded it, and the only thing I could bear to make for dinner tonight was macaroni and cheese. Macaroni and cheese is second only to creamed salmon on toast as a strength-and-health restorer, and tonight it did its best against my sneezing, congestion, sinus pressure, runny nose, cough and overall malaise. So far, the malaise is winning, but even the best macaroni and cheese needs time to work.
