Simple Woman's Daybook for March 4, 2010

March 4, 2010

Outside my window...
Sunshine. Hurray! And a whole lotta Magpies.

I am thinking...
It feels good to breath in and out without coughing my lungs out every time.

I am thankful for...
Medicine. I'd have been dead a long time ago if not for it. I went to the doctor yesterday and was diagnosed with a bronchial infection. He gave me antibiotics. I'm already feeling better and breathing easier after the first dose. The diagnosis did not surprise me. I always end up with some sort of respiratory infection if a virus gets in my lungs or sinuses. The little bugaboos know when I'm down.

From the kitchen...
I haven't been cooking. Haven't had the energy. Sweet Hubby has been bringing dinner home each evening.

I am wearing...
my jammies. I will probably get dressed some time today. I'm not in any hurry.

I am creating...

Not much lately. Coughing too much to bead, and I've finished two knitting projects. I'm wondering what I want to work on next. I did start the next snowman in Snowman Row a few days ago. Maybe I'll work on that.

I am going...
out on the deck as soon as the sun hits it today.

I am reading...
Breaking the Spell by Daniel C Dennet. It's a book that "calls for a scientific, rational examination of religion that will lead us to understand what purpose religion serves in our culture." So far, it's very very interesting. I think it's a good idea. Religion is so important to humans. So many will actually kill, or even commit suicide, for it. It permeates every culture on this planet. We need to know if it's really a benefit to humans or not.

I am hoping...
the trend for getting over this cough continues in the positive.

I am hearing...
the little bubbles in my chest when I breath out. I also hear the fridge humming, the tv, and the birds outside chirping.

Around the house...
It's a total and complete mess. Not only am I sick, but Ruthie has been sick too. So no housecleaning is taking place, though I did manage to get two loads of laundry done so we could have clean undies.

One of my favorite things...
is the Star Trek The Next Generation series. The complete DVD set is on it's way here even as I speak. Found a really outstanding deal on it via Amazon. Sweet Hubby said order it. Hurray!

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Knocking the bejeebers of this infection out of my body once and for all, then getting the house back into proper order. Also, I need to figure out which of the half dozen or so knitting projects on the table I'm going to tackle next. So much yarn, so hard to choose.

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing...
Sharing the blanket:

Have a great weekend.

  1. Cool blog! Check out this Capitola Restaurant

  2. @Anonymous,
    Thanks for the compliment, but it's pretty clear you haven't read much of it. You definitely didn't read this entry:

    Because if you had, you wouldn't have felt the need to recommend that particular restaurant.

    Thanks for the chuckle.
