But oh boy, not well yet, either. Friday the doc checked me all out. Lungs are clear. Sinus infection and ear infection are gone, BUT sinuses are still full of gunk, blocking ear. (TMI? Sorry!) That drainage causes coughing. She gave me a cough syrup that will help me sleep, said keep on doing the nasal spray and the antibiotics and added a sinus rinse. Swore I would feel like a new woman by Monday.
That was yesterday.
Same old sick woman here, although I do sleep better with that cough syrup.
Tried going to work yesterday, got through about half a day. today I went in, and stayed a couple of hours. I would have stayed longer, but my computer was unavailable, and without it there isn’t too much I can do, so it was just easier to come home. 🙂 I’ll try again tomorrow.
Meanwhile, a bit of spinning has happened – I finished one bobbin of Hestia – a nice spin, but I have no energy for it. (Phone shot – bluer than the real color which is a nice rosy hue.)
and I blocked Mirno eventually last week (it soaked for a couple of days!)
I love this shawl, and can see getting lots of use from it and making more of them. From stash, of course. I think I have yarn and beads for two more. 🙂
And because I could not handle lace or long rows, I cast on and finished this hitchhiker in You red My Mind – hand spun. Which is actually red, not pink or purple. I love how this came out, it feels quite rustic. I will also get a lot of use out of this, I am sure.
And lastly, I cast on a sweater this weekend. Been intending to make it for sometime, and it is a fairly easy knit, so I went ahead and did it.
It is Derry from New England Knits, and I am using the Cottage Craft yarn I re-purposed in September. So far I am enjoying the knit. I won’t think about the acres of stockinette in my future, I will think about the nice warm sweater I will have someday. 🙂
Not much to show for being home for nearly two weeks, I know. But most of that time, I was asleep.
Oh, and just so that you know – on my way home from the doctor last week, I stopped and voted. So if you are a political survey telephone person, YOU CAN STOP CALLING ME NOW.
Time for a nap, so I will catch up with you all later – and hopefully have more interesting things to talk about than sinus drip.
