According to one website, "under the weather," may have nautical origins, and first appeared in print in 1835. On another online site, it originated in 1810. Whatever, it is by now a rather dogeared phrase.
When a writer is ill with a bad cold, such as I am, it becomes difficult, nay futile, to muster enough will and words to accomplish much of anything. I'd do better to recline under my desk than hunch over it.
So, rather than not post to my blog this week, I figured I'd just keep this one short. With apologies. I'm off to go lie down again beneath my softest throw and sip on a delicious, healing, relaxing Hot Toddy.
Until next time ...
