A Wicked One

For the past three days, I've alternated between lying on the couch and lying in bed. Sunday, wasn't quite as bad. I curled up with a blanket and knit the front of Outfit 2's topper. Monday and Tuesday were spent lying down. Mostly sleeping. Who knew that I could actually sleep all day and still be exhausted. Holding my head up is taking way too much effort. My armpits ache. My eyelids ache. A heavy metal band is jamming in my forehead. Every part of my body feels like it's been hit by a semi hurtling down the highway. Giving birth was easier than this.

Today, I anticipated another day on the couch, hopefully sitting up, hopefully knitting the back section of the topper and then getting on with things only last night the sneezing and drippy nose started. I'm feeling worse not better. Apparently, I've reached a new level. When I cancelled breakfast with a friend, she said I hear that cold is a wicked one. Yes... yes, it is.

I did finish the purse for Outfit 1 on Saturday as well as three of the "chains" for Outfit 2's statement necklace. When I can actually focus on taking a picture, I'll get one. Right now, the camera looks far too heavy to hold.

Talk soon - Myrna

Grateful
- a firm couch, a warm blanket, a fluffy pillow, time and space to heal
