So hurry up already by taking it easy

Woke up in the night aching and wondering how on earth the bed got so painfully hard–oh. It’s a fever, and oh fun, the brainstem doesn’t want me to breathe on my own (not an entire shutdown, but too close), so, an autonomic nervous system flare to go with. Same old same old, diagnosed fifteen years ago with a blood pressure reading of 63/21 during a tilt table test. Y’know, that’s the lupus symptom I like the least.

But then I did okay today and am hoping that that’s the worst of it.

Meantime, a closeup of the flowers on one side of the second peach tree, with the third, fourth, and fifth peaches soon to burst out in tandem while the honeybees next door were zooming all day around their hive near the fence like electrons around a nucleus, radiant in the sunlight.

Maybe I can get the latest purple cowl off the needles tonight–there are only a few rows’ worth of yarn left in that skein.

We have tickets for our friend Russ’s concert Saturday  that I’ve been looking forward to for a long time and I really need to be fine by then.

I do so hope that the worst of that fever, etc. is behind you. Take it easy just the same.

Thank you for sharing the beauty of your yard with us!

Please be a good patient and take it easy.

I am sure you have a few knitting projects that could use your love and care. *wink*

So sorry that some careless person at Stitches decided to share something with you. Easier to pass the buck than admit the body is non-cooperative isn’t it? (sad grin here). Have to say that I am glad I didn’t go, but want to plan on same next year. Meanwhile look out the window in Singapore where it seems that they never sleep…

Feel better! I am sadly familiar with that sore achey fever problem. It is a doozy and makes me very cranky…
