Common Cold

I have a miserable cold! It comes with a mild fever, lots of leaky fluids, and malaise. My health matches the weather, snowed today, then rained, now windy and cold. Tucked up in a sweater, scarf, comfy bulky socks, and underneath the quilt my Mom made for me.

Learning the double crochet stitch has turned out to be quite a challenge. With the help of another crocheter online, and Bex herself, I think I have it figured out. Having a low key project to take up occasionally when sick is a boon.

It is the weekend at last. I can expect a wee bit of babying! Attila is planning a turkey dinner with all the trimmings for tomorrow, the last big oven meal of the season. Bread baking must also be undertaken during the next few days; and muffins need to be baked of course.
