New Year, New Ramble

More like New Year, New Flu!

I’m actually sick! With the Flu of all things!

I was fine -and contagious- when I went out for lunch and a movie- Little Women- with a friend on Friday. ( Great movie!)

I was fine on Saturday morning while I started my new art project.

And then suddenly I was not!

Uh oh!

The good news is my magic potion is helping and while I’m sick and incapacitated it’s not as horrible as it could be. Aside from the fever, coughing and a very sore throat, the ick has been most manageable. I’m even enjoying the forced rest and I’ve been feeling nothing but gratitude that my symptoms are on the milder side.

It seems to be settling into my chest now which is preferable to my head so it’s ALL GOOD! I’d much rather cough than have a headache even if coughing is the reason I’m awake at this hour.

I did get to watch Bake Off though, and here I am rambling away so it’s not wasted time!

How was your New Year? Did you celebrate?

We had the Little Miss over and that was sure fun. We played games and lit sparklers and everyone was in bed before midnight, ha!

BUT we went for a New Year’s hike the next day-if you follow me on Instagram you’d know this, she says passive aggressively- and I was most proud of myself because I walked on the ice bravely and it was worth the initial fear and anxiety to get out there and start the year off in Nature.

Anyway:

Ha!

Here, this is a nicer one:

And now I’m going to make coffee and play games until the fatigue that’s settling in forces me back to bed! Good Morning and Happy Monday!

  1. Sorry to hear you are ill Lael. My Patty caught a similar bug just be fore Christmas and the coughing has still not stopped yet. Despite that, she was a real trooper and managed to enjoy Christmas and New Year without passing it on to anyone else. Get well soon. Allan

  2. I like how you see the temporary nature of your bug and are taking it in your stroll. Wonderful. I missed the board games we usually play at this time of year but on New year’s day my son did the polar bear swim in the lake, I wish I had done it with him.
