I wish I was only talking about snow, but I am not. I am talking about the flu. The dreaded flu that everyone has heard about, been wary of, and praying that they never meet this season. It found it's way into our home this past weekend, carried by my husband from his plane trip last week. I was sure that I would be immune. I've been eating kale by the bunches, taking my Fire Cider recommended by this friend, exercising, popping my vitamins, drinking water, yada yada yada. But, a virus is a virus. And it will find you if you are near it. Insert evil laugh <Muahahahahah!!> here.
YET. All those things that I have been doing have not been in vain. This virus hit me Sunday night, I was in bed all day Monday, and today, I feel...better. Tired yes, coughing yes, but much much better. Really, a one day flu? Okay, maybe 2 days, but hey, REALLY?
I wish I could say the same for my husband, and now my son. They have been hit hard and I am playing nurse interspersed with making myself honey lemon tea (my favorite sick remedy). My daughter was the only one that received the flu shot, and so far, other than a 99.5 temp, she has made it through without any other symptoms. Could the flu shot really be getting more accurate? This is our first use of the flu shot and I have to say, I think it's working.
Some of the ideas came from a pattern, but it's all free hand baby. (I didn't make the felted zipper wallet, though I found a couple patterns on Ravelry if I was so inclined.) I like embroidery, I really do. But am I inching closer to finding voice? Or just distracting myself further with fun things? I don't know.
But sometimes we just have to do,
and make the time to learn,
to eventually find the know.
I feel like an under-ripened peach. I get impatient with the whole becoming bit, but when I pause to see what I've done, I do know that there is a process to it all, and that the process is part of a larger purpose...
My tummy hurts. I just made cupcakes with the girl and I ate some batter.
"You're still sick silly!!" says the voice in the back of my head.
Okay, I will go act sick now, lay around like under-ripened peaches and do nothing...........except maybe some knitting :) hee hee.
Virtual hugs to you my blogworld friends...
