I've spent the last few days at home nursing an awful head cold. It's been a hot tea and honey kind of week, and not much has gotten done around here. I've been trying to take it easy, although yesterday I did bake cookies for friends (Pioneer Woman's Coconut Oatmeal Chewies; have you tried them yet?). Tonight we have dinner plans with friends, too, so I'm hoping for a miraculous recovery in the next few hours :)
Some of you may remember that we don't watch TV; we have "a" TV, but it's only used as a monitor for occasional videos. We are voracious readers. I'll admit, though --- when I am sick, I'm reminded of how nice it is to sit down and turn into a couch potato for a bit.
Here are a few fairly wholesome shows that we've enjoyed during times like these:
Little House on the Prairie Complete Television Series - every episode from every season is available via Netflix and we enjoy watching these as a family
Adventures in Odyssey - mostly to keep the children occupied for a bit when I really need to rest or close my eyes for a minute
Cranford and Return to Cranford - the theme is a little mature for the children, but nice to watch with my husband in the evening; we both enjoyed these, as the language is rich and captivating
Love Comes Softly and Love's Enduring Promise - these are part of a Love Comes Softly series, and the only two in the series that we've seen, but are thoroughly enjoyable
What do you do when you're not feeling well? What videos would you recommend?
