I've got a confession to make. I've been home sick for the past day and a half. My co-workers sent me home on Monday. Good thing because I was running a fever and had almost no voice. So, I bundled up at home and worked on quiet things- like sewing. I had an off and on fever all day yesterday and last night so I was still considered 'toxic' today. Of course, I was feeling a bit better, especially by this afternoon so I managed to get a few things done.
I folded laundry that had been languishing in laundry baskets and sorted socks while watching Paula Deen use lots and lots of butter. I finished my apron, hand stitching the facing in place. And I finished a little something else:
I also managed to get the broom corn stalks out of the garden. They had such massive root systems that I ended up having to use a shovel to loosen the roots. Yeesh. J17 owes me $ for gas money that she begged last week so I've decided to have her pay it back by helping me rake all the remaining plant material out of the garden. I want to get it all cleared before the snow flies to remove any homes for overwintering nasty bugs.
Tomorrow, it's back to work. Now, I've gotta go figure out what to do with a pan of roasted squash with rosemary. Hmm, I see lunch tomorrow... and the next day....
