I think I'm back

I think I'm back, no really I do. I am having trouble remembering things, but I think the worst of it is gone-now my cat has a cold. She's been sleeping a lot and sneezing constantly, poor thing.
I worry more about her than me, she can't tell me when she is feeling bad.

Now that I am up and around, I've been cleaning the house, throwing more stuff away. I cleaned and organized my empty bedroom and boxed things up in it over 4 months ago. During the last 3 or 4 months the little black cat has knocked over boxes and dug around in it so much that I will have to do it again. Little gray doesn't do that. She sits and watches the other one. I know because I hear the crashes. Most of the time Gray is lying in the window looking outside. It will take time to do it all again. In the meantime I'll just do the rest of the house. I find it so hard to throw away pieces of fabric and balls of yarn. My DH says I am a packrat-he's probably right. I know I got that from my father-he saved everything, sooner or later he'd use it. I guess I'm the same way. And it does get used-sooner or later.

Two weeks ago, I unboxed and reboxed all my yarn and separated it into different groups. mohair and wool went into one box, acrylic into another and cones of pearl cotton into still another-didn't know I had so much. And stuff I may never use into still another one. There is also a box of lion suede and a few balls of katrina and some misceleaneous yarn in to make something I can't remember. Most of it's been around for a while-quite a while in fact. Like how long ago did lion brand yarn stop making Imagine? I still have some-at least 30 balls of it, maybe 40. Got to find something to do with it. Maybe some nice sweaters-will need to knit that. I could use some warm sweaters, not too warm or I will be too hot all winter. I am one of those people that run around in the winter without a coat and socks and never gets sick. This year has been an exception to that. I wasn't running around without a coat or socks and still got sick-I was very careful this year. Maybe I won't be so careful from now on since it doesn't seem to matter. Healthwise that is. Anyway, I am off to do some more cleaning, there is a lot to do-I don't even know if I'll put up a tree this year, but I still want the house clean.

It's been nearly a week

It's been nearly a week and I am still almost as sick as I was. I am at least wearing out whatever I've caught. I am able to get out of bed now-spent four days in bed, most of it asleep. And managed to do the laundry and put it away yesterday with help. DH did dishes for me Saturday or I would not have them done yet. Can you imagine-too sick to knit, crochet or spin. I am beginning to see some improvement and am relieved. I don't know what this bug was, but if you get it, I'd say stock up on Nyquil and Dayquil and Puffs with lotion. Oh and Vicks vaporub. And coughdrops or syrup. You will need them. And some asprin or whatever you prefer for the awful headache. Hopefully, I will get back to yoga this week, I miss it.

Yes Ugg! I am sick, some nasty buggy has gone and got me. It is in my lungs and has aroused my asthma, I am so miserable. Will spare you the details and make a post later when I am in working order. In the meatime, I am going back to bed and will sleep (I hope) and knit and crochet and watch tv when I am awake-which I hope is not much. I can barely see the screen so not sure I will read much.

Anyway I am off to sleep perchance to dream (of not being ill).
