I have been home for the last few days with the flu. Yeah, didn’t dodge that bullet, but didn’t get it as badly as most folks have. I opted to stay home today because yesterday I made myself stay up all day and it was exhausting. Went to bed last night with a head that felt like it weighed 50 lbs. So I got up at near usual time this a.m. and decided that it wasn’t going to be a green light for work. The temperatures outside have fallen today, and it was lovely to do chores in slightly more winter-like weather.
What I did get done today was to finish some of my custom orders for dryer balls. A very nice project for putting one’s feet up and playing with roving and yarn. I just love these things, and some of my co-workers are very excited about them as well. I love the fact that I can cut out another source of chemicals from our lives, so it’s a total win for me (we use these instead of dryer sheets or fabric softener). I wish I could just keep the basket on the table for a decoration… they are all so different and so lovely!
I also have been admiring one of our violets which is beginning to bloom again after I repotted it last summer. Small joys for the day!
