three days

Three days of Benylin and Neo-Citran.
Three days of hot fluids and early to bed.
Three days of orange juice and taking it easy.

And what have I got to show for it? Nothing. My throat is still sore and my head still pounds. I'm no better and no worse. I even tried the bad host cure using rum to attack the virus, but no luck, although I did get a good night's sleep that night! I'm betting the virus will hang on through the holiday weekend and then suddenly clear up in time for work Tuesday morning.

In the meantime I've made a good start on my first Embossed Leaves sock. The designer, Mona Schmidt, recommends a two strand tubular cast on. I looked at her tutorials and I'm intrigued but trying to figure out a new technique made my head pound. And not getting the hang of it effortlessly and immediately triggered a whole mess of impatient feelings. So I cast on loosely on a larger needle and went with that. Maybe next week will be the right time to try new things?

Yeah -- sick and challenging project is not a good idea.

Hope you are feeling better soon.

keep taking the fluids and try new stuff when you feel better

Ugh - I'm still plugging along at "just barely functional" with my cold. Hope you're better soon

Sock is looking great though
