I have been struck down by the dreaded flu bug and rendered useless by it's evil powers over the past week. But never fear! I am fighting back and will resume normal service today. The single most annoying thing about having any kind of cold is the loss of smell and taste. How dull life becomes when you can't savor some tasty treat or enjoy a scented candle. So, in the absence of my taste buds I am relying on the lovely watercolors of Parisienne Lucile's Kitchen to give me a little sensory therapy.
