Battling The Crud
This year it has hit much earlier than usual, and -- knock wood -- seems not to be as forceful. I've been in and out (mostly out) of work for a week and one night I had trouble sleeping because I was coughing. A colleague told me not to drink anything cold, only warm or room temperature liquids and lots of them. Joe brought home a jug of cider and let me tell you how good that is heated up. My wonderful neighbor brought me chicken soup. And I go through tissues. I nap every day, sometimes twice. I take lots of drugs. I'm doing my part.
I finished hand quilting Mayfly Madness and as I was doing the border I realized that I need to keep it for Grandbaby #5, arriving late in April, rather than give it away at that Thanksgiving shower. So I've begun a new quilt for that mom-to-be and hope to post pictures before too long. It's a Churn Dash.
I've also been on Facebook a lot more than usual. Beyond my regular Facebook Scrabble games, for no good reason I have indulged in Bubble Saga and Bubble Witch Saga to the point where I hear the background music at night when I'm trying to go to sleep. A tremendous waste of time that I'm going to discontinue as soon as I finish writing this post. Instead of shooting bubbles and attracting spiders, I'm going to get back to binding Mayfly Madness. And make a few more Churn Dashes. And blow my nose.
