I am much better now. Mostly due to the fact that my husband kept feeding me hot tomato soup with oregano (my favorite!). The heat and the spices really helped and it tasted sooo good. I had it days in a row and i didn't complain! I missed checking on my blog friends and i missed what i call "blog hopping" which is how i find new people and new friends. I didn't get on the pc at all and i missed it terribly. lol. Thank you all for your kind comments and prayers. I really appreciate it!
On my way back from the doctor, i stopped in a thrift shop in Queens and bought a never read 1983 version of The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby. I paid 1 dollar for it. It is a facsimile of the original 1838-9 in two volumes, with illustrations and advertisements (from the Nicholby Advertiser) from that time. I am really thrilled by it. It makes me feel as if i am actually in that time reading the book when it was first published, eventhough I would have had to pay 1 shilling for each installment. I wonder how much is that equal to the dollar i paid. The pages seem never to have been opened. It is still crisp, no dog ears or anything. I have not seen the movie and the reason i know of the classic is the tiny reference to it in the movie version of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women. After I am through, i will watch the movie and then compare. I am so excited!
