A View from Sierra County

Small town life and politics, lots of knitting, and travels with and without my five burros

Location: In the Sierra Nevadas, United States

I blog about rural living and social issues, and the creativity that comes from knitting, as well as post random pictures of the Sierras and my burros. "In order to be an artist, one must be deeply rooted in the society" - Simone de Beauvoir

We Interrupt This Program For...

A brief illness. Yesterday was a long, aching, scary day of illness, beginning with what I thought was food poisoning, being awakened at 3 AM. Over the course of a day of fever and chills, I started to question my original theory and opt for the flu as the cause. I was particularly worried that I would have to miss my trip this weekend, and in the few moments of lucidity, managed to cancel work for last night and today, giving ample time for recovery.

You have all had those days where minor illness kept you home, but at least you could curl up on the couch and read and nap - maybe even knit a bit. Not so this time. Even sitting in the desk chair trying to read my email hurt. All I did was either sleep or try to sleep, as sometimes I was simply too uncomfortable... DH finally insisted on feeding me something late last night, which was probably good, as I was completely out of fuel. I woke this morning much clearer headed, and optimistic about careful recovery getting me to my plane on time.

Oh no!! Please, please take care of yourself. I'm afraid you'll be drug around after you get off the plain as I am in dire need of a haircut and we'll have dinner after that. If you don't feel well please let me know and I'll take you home first!!

Oh, no! I hope you feel MUCH better and quick! I hate being that sick (whereas I kind of enjoy the vague not-well-but-can-lay-around-and-read-and-knit sick days).

Not sure what it is...Jane's not doing the best, you're under the weather, and I'm fighting it big time (with a DGS who's trying not to succumb but failing that fight!)...hmm...crazy weather not killing the germs??? Or misery loves company?
Feel LOTS better soon, okay?

I'm so glad you are feeling better. Have a great time in SLC. I would give ANYTHING to spend a few days at the family history library there! I might even pass up a fiber festival for it!
