Traveling woes!


Visiting a large city one chooses good restaurants where enjoyable
 food in a comfortable setting is expected.
Sadly, we must have picked a bad one along the way this time and
I ended up with food poisoning!  Bob and I never ordered the same 
items and he was fine. 
Sunday I felt 'off', Monday very sick, and Tuesday so ill I just
longed to get home. The drive was awful and when we drove
into our driveway I headed straight for the house while Bob
unpacked the car. I drank lots of water, showered and slept for hours. 
The scale showed I had lost 6 pounds since leaving home on Friday! 
Yesterday I started on the BRAT diet, recommended for getting one's
 digestive system back on track - 48 hours of just bananas, rice, 
applesauce and dry toast.

Just had breakfast - banana and unsweetened applesauce.
no coffee, but a cup of decaf tea.

Still feel weak, tired and fuzzy but hoping another day and I'll
be much better.
New pretty blue bowls - a 4-piece set found at IKEA.


  1. Poor you! I don't think I have ever had food poisoning, but it does not sound nice. Get well soon!
    Those bowls are very pretty, so summerly.

  2. So sorry to hear that, Mary. Hope you will be really well very soon.

  3. Interesting diet - I shall beinterested to hear if it works. I am a great believer in bananas for curing all ills.

  4. Oh how awful! May your BRAT diet settle things down. Sleep all you want!

  5. I am so sorry you got food poisoning! Hope you feel better soon.

  6. Hello Mary, I am so sorry to hear about your travel woes. I've only had food poisoning once but it was truly AWFUL! No way I could have traveled anywhere while that was going on! All that to say, you have my sympathy and I'm so glad you are in recovery mode now. Those are some very pretty bowls, and hopefully made the BRAT meal a bit more enjoyable with their beauty.

  7. Dear Mary - I am so sorry to read this - I had imagined that you would have a wonderful time and return home refreshed. Hope that by now you are feeling much better and back to your old self again. Take care - I shall watch out for those pretty blue bowls next time we visit Ikea.

  8. Oh no, Mary, I am so sorry! Are you sure it was food poisoning and not the flu or Covid? Whatever it is, I hope you feel better very soon.

  9. OH no! I'm so sorry you suffered with food poisoning, Mary. No fun at all!

    I must write down the combo to get the digestive system back on track.
    The bowls are very pretty!

    Rest up and feel better soon,

  10. Dearest Mary,
    Of all the misfortune on your behalf, sure glad that it did NOT affect Bob.
    At least one of the two was able to drive and stay alert.
    My goodness, what a fate to deal with!
    One never knows... Hoping you soon nurse yourself back to health with rest and easy food for your digestive system to recover from all this.
    My back is not yet pain free, but I feel better. Has to as my trip is around the corner almost...

  11. Travel woes of the worst kind! Food poisoning is misery on a stick when you're far from home. I'd not heard before of the BRAT diet to get you back on track but it sounds like it will do the trick. Get well soon, Mary!

  12. Hope you are starting to feel better.

  13. Dear Mary, how awful! I wish you a good recovering - and that you can go another time on vacation. Losing so much weight is no fun. Hope you are well soon! Britta

  14. Oh Mary .... poor you ..... hope you are back on track now. I think I might have eaten something funny yesterday ..... I don't feel right today ! I'd better get on the BRAT diet ! Get better soon Mary. XXXX

  15. Dear Mary, What an unpleasant way to end a longed for trip. I hope you're well on the mend.

  16. How awful! I swear by the BRAT diet when unwell, hope it helped!
