(picture borrowed from the Slashfood review)

A little celebration of something that's making me ever so happy right now:

Cadbury Mini Eggs

Yes, even though I'm not feeling especially well right now, I love that they put out holiday candy so early (all year around) because of that means I can get my hands on this once-a-year treat sometime in February. Well, okay, in Canada they get red, green & white Mini Eggs at Christmas too (though I'm not sure why), but I don't buy them then because I'm busy making my own goodies in December. Come March and April, though, nothing tastes better than these Cadbury chocolate treats. I'm not sure what about them sets them apart from other chocolate Easter candy--I can only say that the chocolate is different. If I had a better palette, I might be able to pinpoint it. Whatever they do, I love it.

And as you will see if you Google it, I'm not the only one enamored of these little candies.

So Roger & I finally got hit with a bug or two last week. People we knew had been sick weeks before, and we thought that maybe we were just fortunate enough to escape (yay, immune systems!), but then last Monday Roger came home early and by dinner time, he was feverish and restlessly sleeping. He got up for a couple hours on Tuesday, just for a change of scenery (sleeping on the couch instead of in bed) and got dressed around noon on Wednesday and puttered around the apartment with me. (Yes, I know I haven't posted apartment pics yet. I'm bad.)

On Wednesday, however, I woke up with a sore throat. I hoped that I had just been sleeping with my mouth open, and I went to the gym (even though I don't normally go on Wednesdays), but after the hour cardio workout, my coughing told me I'd caught something too. Yippee. I wiped down everything I touched at the gym really well.

Mostly, I seem to just have an obnoxiously draining chest cold. Lots of coughing, which leads to a sore throat. I've been drinking lots of green tea and lots of water.

Roger & I are both feeling much better; Roger went back to work on Thursday, and though I'm still not going to the gym (coughing and cardio don't work together), I'll be able to in a couple days, I think.

Currently reading: A Perfect Mess.
Maybe I'll go ahead and take apartment pictures after all.
