Squeeze Half a Lemon...

good evening!
i have been attacked...
so it's one {wo}man down around here,
a random casualty of a spring cold.
this old fashioned concoction is making a very sore throat
feel a whole lot better...
i've had 3 today.
boil the jug and let the water cool down a bit while
squeezing the juice out of half a lemon
{wrap the other half up in cling wrap and keep in the fridge for next time}...
pour the juice into a glass or mug
add a good teaspoon or two of honey..a good dollop anyway.
fill up the glass with hot water...
and sip slowly.
it really takes the edge off.
i'll pop in and visit you again just as soon as i can...
take care!

  1. You poor thing Carol! Hope those cold symptoms 'clear up' ASAP. Hot lemon drink usually works wonders!

  2. take care of your self Carol!!

  3. Best remedy ever...take care and speedy recovery. x

  4. Hope you're feeling better soon Carol! Gargling cider vinegar (a tsp in some water) also helps. But everyone has their favorite remedies... talk soon. Love Jillxx

  5. You know what, sipping lemon and hot water just feels good and right. Use some soft cloths for your nose rather than tissues so you don't get all red and sore. x

  6. Nothing Better than the old Honey & Lemon works a Treat..
    Hope you are feeling better soon

  7. Hope you are soon better Carol. A cold at this time of year is such a disappointment isn't it. Just when you should be feeling all happy and spring-like. I find honey and lemon always comforting, also good is gargling with salt water (yuck). Not so nice, but effective. cheers Wendy

  8. Hope you feel better soon! ;) xo Heather

  9. Hi Carol,I've had the head flu as well recently..YUK...Get better soon..xx

  10. I hope you are feeling better soon and on the mend. I also have lemon and honey when sick, it is so comforting.

  11. Oh poor Carol, I hope you're feeling much better now... and your lovely lemony mixture has been working a treat! xo

  12. Hope you feel better soon Carol, winter colds abound here but I often think summer colds are worse. My Dad swears by alternating cinnamon in hot water with the honey and lemon by the way. Be well x

  13. I hope you soon feel better with your delicious lemony drink, Carol. I love honey and lemon when I have a cold though am hoping I don't need to make it too often this winter.
    Take care :)

  14. Oh hope you're better soon. I feel that I might be catching a late Spring cold too. Should a sore through arrive I'll try to remember this remedy.
    Happy Sunday! xo

  15. I had a whole pot of this today!!! My Nanna taught it to me .... of course she swears by adding good Scotch Whiskey too .... but I skipped that part! No wonder she felt better after one cup! ha! Hugs Sarah xxxx

  16. Hi Carol, hope your feeling better soon, a good recipe for a sore throat, lemon with honey. I hate being sick in spring. It's just not fair is it? Best Wishes

  17. Oh poor you! Hope you're on the mend. And I can vouch for the honey and lemon drink wonders. Wishing you a lovely ( and germ free week )

  18. Get well! I always take Airborne and do the lemon juice drink as well. Thanks for your kind comment on my photo and verse.

  19. Hope you are feeling better.

    I love a honey and lemon drink even when I'm not sick!
