I am still slowly recovering from the second cold I have had this month. I am feeling better than I was over the weekend, and was feeling great yesterday. I definitely over did things yesterday while feeling so much better.
Today I have definitely been trying to take it easier and not push myself like I did yesterday.
The power had gone out for a bit earlier today. I had been working on a post earlier today while the power was out that I scrapped, and started over.
Yesterday I had decided to bake some gluten free vegan shortbread cookies, which had turned out amazing.
I love getting to use my Scottish Thistle cookie stamp. I had ordered it over a year ago, because I had wanted to try making the Bob’s Red Mill gluten free shortbread cookie mix and I have gotten plenty of use out of since.
I got a package from KnitPicks yesterday so I had wound up the bulky yarn I had gotten (one of the many things I did yesterday), and I had cast on a shawl, so now I have plenty of knitting projects going to keep me occupied while I continue getting over this cold.
This weekend was a busy one. I was feeling pretty good after having a cold last week. So I had gone about life as usual over the weekend.
Then yesterday I feel like I ran into a brick wall and had taken a few steps backward in the illness department. Last night was rough, my tonsils were pretty swollen all night and have finally gone down as the day has gone on. I definitely picked up another bug.
I shouldn’t be surprised beings my weekend was busy and I was just getting over another bug. My immune system hadn’t completely recovered.
Fortunately, I am able to stay home for the time being, where I can rest and drink plenty of water.
I had a good weekend at least. I got to spend some time with a good friend of mine as well as being in the part of the state I consider to be home.
What was to be day 2 of Birthday (family dinner) got postponed a weekend (and will be day 3 of Birthday). First my dad came down with a cold on Friday, and then Saturday night my mom and I started coming down with it, she and I were still feeling well enough to do tea and treats on my actual birthday, but we have otherwise stayed home the past couple of days.
When one person catches a cold it seems to just go around.
I have seemed to have been the least effected by this bug. I made soup yesterday, and I have been eating, albeit less than normal. I have also been trying to drink way more water.
Being sick is never fun, being sick over the holidays is the worst.
Being sick has given me a chance to spend some more time knitting and getting caught up on the TV shows that I am currently watching.
