This is my second day in a row to be home sick with a bug. All right, so that’s not very professional sounding. What else could I call it? I can think of some things like: The stuff everyone else at work or their families has or has had? The creeping crud? A virus? The flu? A sore throat? It all depends on your perspective…There is a list of symptoms with which I will not bore you, except for one. I have little or no energy. It is strange to feel like this since I am the resident Whirling Dervish on a normal day. Most other days you can combine that with Energized Bunny to describe me.
If there are any psych nurse or health care workers, I am not depressed. It’s just a bug, which should hopefully go away quickly. In the meantime, I am doing all of the right nursing measures like forcing fluids; resting; making myself eat; and knitting. Yes, knitting. 🙂 It is good for the body, soul and spirit. Can you tell I think it has healing properties? Besides, it keeps me busy and from going totally stir crazy.
So far here is what has been done:
- Most of a washcloth for a CNA at work. It was ready for loose ends to be woven in when I discovered a dropped and live stitch about three fourths of the way down. It was tinked and is now about 3/4 of the way re-knitted. The pattern is my own from here. It is made with Baby Pink Peaches and Creme.
- All but the last 10-12 rows of the Ecru dishcloth in the Holly Kitchen Set from Elmore Pisgah. The pattern is easy to follow and works up quickly. This is one that will be used again even after the yarns from the kit are gone.
- I have gotten caught up on three days worth of rows for a KAL.
It has not been much, but it has helped keep me from being totally bored. I will try to post pictures this weekend.
