Spent in bed for the most part.
Nasty little germs invaded and sucked all the energy out of me. One of the weirdest illnesses I've had a for a while. Started off with a banging headache and throat so sore, razor blades comes to mind. Next day those symptoms were gone. Yay! I thought, just a 24 hour thing. Hah, not so much.
Extreme tiredness. Going to the bathroom had me sweating and puffing - I mean seriously, it's less than a 5 second walk to the bathroom from my bedroom! I forced myself to drop Rye off at friends and they would bring him back in time for bedtime. Each day he would ask me if I feel better, and his beautiful little face would drop when I shook my head and would drift back off to sleep. Too tired to even crochet!
I confess I was beginning to fear I'd develop some sort of fatigue problem, my gawd it's horrible. I drove to a friends house to pick up Rye, I parked across the road from her house, and just crossing the road and climbing the 3 small steps in front of her house, had me panting, sweating and feeling dizzy. Just sitting up in bed for too long would have me feeling exhausted and needing to lay down again. I have pretty much slept a week away.
Today, much better. This whole illness has been terribly inconvenient though, I was suppose to visit some dear friends at the weekend, alas I've had to cancel. Downside of self employment is poorly equals no pay. I'm just thankful I had not mentioned the weekend away to Rye.
The book is Storm Front by Jim Butcher, it's the first in the Dresden Files series.
The other book is Granny Square Book, the book hosts beautiful granny square variations and also projects along with tips on how to create one's own creations from granny squares. It arrived yesterday and I've been salivating over quite a few of the patterns.
Once my current WIPs are finished I think a new blanket might be in order... perhaps one using up the odds and sods in my stash too...
