It is not raining.. The sky leaks!

Our weather is odd this time of year, we still have those warm sunny days and then cold rainy ones sneak up.

Layers are really the answer to coastal living. It is cold first thing in the morning and by 2pm it’s the warm peak of the day, by evening the ocean winds pick back up, so we put those layers back on.

A 50 degree day here can be really nice, but if it is raining – its cold. We get this odd rain too, because of ocean winds – it rains sideways.

Im not complaining though, I picked to live here on the coast and it is just a fact. The one problem is when you have that nice warm day, the cold coming in always brings the “sickies”.

You hear that dreaded cough, then sniffles and the outbreak started before the sun comes up. Anthony woke up the other morning and said he has the snuffles – too cute!

Sambucus Original Syrup By Nature’s Way and Vitamin C are really common staples here at our house. What do you do when those dreaded snuffles start with in families?


  1. Eat lots of homemade Chicken soup….delicious and good for you! 🙂

  2. Thanks for an idea, you sparked at thought from a angle I hadn’t given thoguht to yet. Now lets see if I can do something with it.

  3. Green Tea and more Green Tea. When I feel like I might be coming down with something I drink so much green tea that i’m running back to the restroom every 20 minutes.
    after a day of flushing my system and boosting it with antioxitants I almost never get sick
