I rang in 2010 with dear friends and great food and wine (which is how all New Years Eves should be spent, in my opinion) in cozy condo in snow-covered Ludlow, VT. I cross-country skied on New Years Day, working up a sweat and enjoying being outside on a gorgeous day. But by the end of the evening, I wasn't feeling great, and woke up with a fever and a vicious sore throat, which is still lingering. I spent the entire next day in my red flannel pj's, sleeping on and off, and watching the snow blow around outside. This, of course, was not a bad way to spend a day, but I had planned on downhill skiing, so it wasn't quite the same. I did get to have tomato soup and grilled cheese for lunch, though, which was a bonus.
Having just been hit with a massive head cold right before Christmas, I have to admit that I'm slightly concerned about the heartiness of my immune system these days, so I plan to tone things down a bit this month in order to rebuild and strengthen it. Any/all suggestions are welcome.
