If you’ve ever had a “common cold”,
then you know how uncommonly awful it makes you feel!

I was hoping to make it through the winter without getting sick,
but this week I’ve been suffering all the usual symptoms:
sore throat, body aches, head aches, coughing, sneezing, runny nose, and general sense of being exhausted.

I put myself to bed for several days with hot tea, chicken soup, several boxes of tissues, and lots and lots of sleep…

But I’m feeling well enough today to share a quick little illustration I made while feeling under the weather.
(The illustration is pencil, chalk and watercolor.)
