Well, I've been home all week. Finally, after 3 days of intense congestion, my cold is finally breaking up so today I am blowing (and blowing and blowing) my nose. I've been trying to spin but it's kinda hard to pay attention when you're sneezing repeatedly. Hopefully, this is the last hurrah and I'll be done with this. My doctor's office said they will sign any forms I need. They know I'm not trying to put one over on my employers.
I finished one of the Garden Path socks and I absolutely love it. I chose a green and blue variegated yarn (Zen Yarn's ArtWalk January sock yarn) which coordinates perfectly with the pattern. Now, I'm working on sock number two. I can finally pay attention to things so it might move along a little faster. I can actually work on Em's sweater, too. My head is a little clearer (if a little leaky).
I've been listening to Billy Collins on my mp3 player. He was the Poet Laureate for the US a few years ago. He is an unusual poet and I love his delivery. You can find some of his poems on youtube. They're illustrated with interesting videos. Unfortunately, they were making me laugh and that led to massive coughing bouts. Totally worth it.
Before I go (so I can blow my nose some more) I wanted to remind everyone that Earth Hour is 8:30 local time on March 28th. You can read more about it here. Last year, we were at Em's house for her birthday and we turned off the electrical appliances and lights for an hour. It made us become more aware of how much power we waste every day and we have made a concerted effort to turn off lights and appliances no one is using. Are we making a large impact? Probably not. But if we all try, that will make a difference.
We're due for some nice weather this weekend. I'm hoping to get out of the house for the first time since Monday. If I can stop sneezing and blowing my nose, maybe we can go out for pizza.....
Have a good weekend.
