I had a head cold.
It was AWFUL. Just kidding, in the grand scheme of things, it wasn’t that bad. At first, I thought it was just allergies, but then I was more tired and irritable than usual. Tuesday I had a slightly sore throat (I had the bedroom window open and the fan blowing ON me, which has given me a sore throat in the past) with itchy ears and eyes, Wednesday I had the runniest nose, Thursday I was super congested, Friday/Today a raspy voice. But I feel 100% back to normal otherwise. By Tuesday, it’ll be like it never happened. No one else in my house seems to be affected. I usually get an allergy induced sinus infection every year about this time- thanks Facebook for keeping track of my gripes!
I had to hit up my farmers’ market this morning: I had goat on hold with my meat guy. So I donned my mask, because I didn’t want to risk spreading my cold germs. Even if the likelihood of my being contagious is zero.
I haven’t changed all the sheets or folded and put away all the laundry from the week. It’ll wait for me. I listened to the Warbreaker Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson on Hoopla instead; I could have listened to that and done my chores but that is besides the point. It was a fantasy/sci-fi dramatically acted audiobook. It had a weird high-pitched sound in the recording that got on my nerves at times. But the story was compelling enough to be interesting for 17 hours of storytelling. I finished up my crochet blanket and my weird hat. And started on ANOTHER blanket to finish up all my bits (and give to my daughter’s teacher as a baby gift). I started the ribbing on my sweater. I tried it on as I was switching needle sizes. I think I want 5-8 inches of ribbing (so ambitious!).
