...and I have begun to sew again! Slow progress but somehow...weekend chores seem to interfere just a bit.
It's been a rough school year health-wise for me... first there was pneumonia in October, followed immediately by 6 weeks out for a fractured thumb and five fractured ribs. And next up.... The Flu!
Yes, despite a flu shot, The Flu caught me this past week and knocked me for a loop. I'm better but the recovery is slow. My daughter-in-law named this stage of the flu process as Perma-cold.... which is an excellent description.
Hot tea has been my close friend this past week and, indeed, it's helped a lot.... just wish this stuff would go away and stay away. I do think I've had my share of bad luck this school year... maybe I'll be healthy the rest of the year!
Digression (otherwise known as "heading down a rabbit trail"): Way last fall when I was stuck at home with the rib fractures and wasn't in good enough shape to watch a move, TV, or read, my daughter suggested Farmville2 on Facebook. Both granddaughters were playing so I thought I'd give it a try. After all, if a third grader and a first grader could play.... surely I could figure it out!
I have to say it it was perfect for the short spans of attention I could give it and, with the assistance of my 7-yr-old granddaughter who taught me all her tricks, I kinda got good at Farmville2.
Next, family members started playing to "help Emma and Chloe" progress faster....
...and before you knew it... Farmville2 was an out-and-out competition among the older family members! *lol*
See? I'm at Level 37... my daughter and one sister are at Level 35, and my baby sister is at Level 34!
Farmville2 has been good for me while I've been down and.... it's been good for us, as a widely dispersed family, to be able to have an on-going game in which we all participate. Of course, family members who are not playing have to give us a hard time and send us photos such as this one...
