Under the Weather

I wonder where that phrase came from (Grandpa W?)? Sorry I've been spotty here lately. I haven't been feeling myself since last Thursday, but I think I'm on the rebound, so we should be back to our regularly scheduled program soon.

Yay, I've been missing your posts. You are my blogging inspiration after all. Hope you continue heading uphill.

I will keep you company. Someone is sure to bring us tea and sympathy. I am a little under the weather myself. : ) Hpoe you feel better soon.

This expression comes from the idea that bad weather might hurt a person's health and mood. The saying also may be related to "under the weather bow," the part of a boat that will take the force of rough seas during stormy weather. If you were in that part of the boat, you might get seasick!

How neat, I never knew why we said it, we just did! I have felt yucky today, too. I've got the tea, guess I just need the sympathy!
