But, instead of focusing on the bad, here are a few not-so-bad things about being sick ...
1: Reading: I've really enjoyed amping up my daily book quota. I've read 2 two cozy mysteries and a non-fiction book on Washington in the last 3 days. Not to mention catching up on my readings and research for school. Definitely a bonus.
2: Knitting: Cookie and I are starting a knitting club for the teens at the library. She doesn't know how to knit, but watching her learn will really help the kids learn. So, I've been brushing up on my skills. I always save time for reading, no matter how busy I am ... but, I have never been good about staying with my knitting projects when things get hectic. I'm thinking this club will help.
3: Online Shopping: Yes, I do a shit-ton of this all ready, but I've really been able to catch some great deals and check up on some old wish lists while sitting around, waiting for my head to stop pounding.
4: Recipes: I've come up with at least 3 new soups while being sick. I haven't cooked any of them as of yet ... I can't bring myself to grocery shop. I'll keep you posted, though.
5: Zombees! I have come up with so many new scents and I've been able to build my inventory up for the next Candles & Cocktails which will be Mardi Gras themed, by the way.
My precious new teapot. Now, I really never have to leave The Fort. My home office is complete.
One of my favorite sick-time buys.
