Another Rough Night

So my granddaughter asked me why skirts have tags on them because you can wear them any way that you want. Hmm, I’m trying to figure out what she’s asking. I said, “Well, tags are required to tell what materials are in the skirt, washing instructions–can you wash them in the machine or does it have to be washed by hand?–and the size of the skirt.”

“No. That’s not what I’m asking. If you can wear a skirt anyway around, why do they have a tag?”

I laughed. “Okay, so you know to wear the tag in the back with pants and shirts, but the tag is there to tell you if it’s cotton, or rayon, or linen, or wool fabrics. The size. Does it fit you or me? And how you can safely wash it. But we also use it to figure out which way to put the pants and other clothes on. For some skirts, it doesn’t matter.”

I love when she asks questions even though sometimes I’m not sure what she’s asking. But it usually comes out in the wash.

I’m still sick. I never did work on edits yesterday, just felt so bad. I coughed all night, lost my voice yesterday and did you know you’re not supposed to whisper? What? It puts more strain on your vocal cords. No decongestants, avoid alcohol and caffeine, drink plenty of water, gargle with salt water, use a humidifier, and suck on throat lozenges. Still coughing, sneezing, and have a sore throat. I did use Vicks Vapor Rub below my nose and it worked like a dream to open up my nasal passages. Could not breathe in the middle of the night. And I have an awful headache this morning again.

Chicken soup is on the menu today.

I’m still working on art projects and a photo for a lady whose son passed away. I hope I can do it justice.

Have a super great day!!
