Waiting On It

I've dug this photo out of D's desktop. That's my "Constant Companion" from Knitters' Stash. I know it was a hit because 5 of my friends have since made it. Cascade 220. Fun felting. Big knitting bag. All good.
D. has extracted the brain from my laptop but not the information. He's away in Calgary at a meeting.
We had a nice Mothers' Day. Mr. Boo said "Happy Mothers' Day", this is a day only for happy mothers. We went to my sister's new cabin on Harrison Lake and I wish I could show you the great green and lush photos. But we'll have to wait.
On Saturday I manned the BBQ for six hours at fundraiser for the kids. A great irony, me selling hotdogs. The ladies who used to be in my weight watchers group wouldn't dare buy them. I don't eat such things, nor feed them to my kids. You'll get me as close as a tofu dog on a whole wheat bun. I know. Life of the party.
But after standing in the cold on Saturday, and sitting around in the cold cabin Sunday, I've come down with a bad sore throat and the chills. Crappy day. Try studying immunology when your own is so preoccupied. Fever, check. Chills, check. Nausea, check. Fatigue- oh just leave it and go to bed.
And I stole some time this evening to watch DVDs and knit. Cozy is coming along. I put on the fireplace and poured myself a wee dram.
Tomorrow I start Pharmachology. This course is taken on line along with others. I think it will be nice to have some contact. I got all the pre-test questions right. I'm hoping its not too much more extra work. But I'll have to wait.
