Welcome everyone to Open Link Night at dVerse! This is Gayle from Bodhirose’s Blog and I’ll be your host for the next few days as we read and comment on each other’s works.

This has been a week of colds for several of our family members including both of the granddaughters…and me! Since Mira started preschool in September she’s just about had a perpetual cold. I guess that’s the way it goes when they’re around all those other little kids with new germs to share amongst themselves.

Even when I worked at a private school for several years, I managed to somehow avoid getting sick much and I’ve fared pretty well during my time taking care of Mira. But now I’ve had a couple of mild colds in the last couple of months and it has me wondering about my immune system and how I can give it a boost . Maybe some extra vitamin C, some zinc, some herbal concoctions in capsules or teas. Yes, it’s that time of year again and I’m going to do my best to stay healthy. And I wish the same for all of you!

I’ve heard that hot toddies are good for colds so if anyone else is under the weather, I’ll do my best to mix some up and have them available at the bar. I think hot apple cider would be soothing too. I’m ready to take your orders!
