Here is a glimpse of the glory that is my first spun and plied yarn and the scarf it is growing up to be. It has a soft shimmer from the silk and is soft and dense. Very dense. This will be a scarf of armor to keep out the winter chill. It's funny how it is not spun terribly evenly, nor is it plied very evenly, but when it is worked over with the needles, it behaves itself and looks nice and even.

I had a birthday dinner at the local Chinese restaurant. They know us there and always treat us well. At the end of the meal, they brought a plate of oranges and pineapple bits (which they often do) but this time there was a candle in the pineapple! And there was singing. I felt loved and special. Em gave me a basket for my bike. Now I can do my local errands on my bike once Pk installs the basket. It comes off and has a handle so I can take it into stores and save on bags. Good for the environment and good for me.

I am home from work today. For some reason I had a hard time sleeping last night and this morning Pk insisted I go back to bed and sleep some more. So, I called out. I feel slightly guilty for being home without being sick but his rationale was that I wouldn't be able to do my best work and give my clients what they need if I am not at my best. I fell for it. I am also suffering the aftereffects from the antibiotics I took a little while ago. Whenever I take them, I end up with a yeast infection. I have medicated myself and am waiting for it to work. I should remember to just ask the doctor to write a prescription for diflucan when he writes the antibiotic. I just always forget.

I hope you are all having a good Monday. The weather is cold here, well, cooler than it was. Feels like fall.

Evil, evil yeast. I hope you feel better soon. I took acidophilus prophylactically beginning a week before the c-section, and I still ended up on Diflucan. However, that wasn't available the first time I got thrush 7 years ago, so I'm glad it's around now.

Enjoy your restful day!!

If you kick back and just revel in your day of rest, you will be surprised how much better you feel tomorrow. PK loves you and is taking good care of you. You need it. Rest with enthusiasm and abandon!

Luscious, delicious scarf. Yummy, yummy!

The scarf looks beautiful, all shimmery. We've had some winds you basically needed armor against.

Your spinning looks great! Hope you're feeling better.

oh it's so beautiful! Well done Donna Lee. I aspire to start spinning and stop fearing it!

I think PK was right. You don't need to go in when you haven't slept. Insomnia is no fun and even less so the day after.
