Life on the Couch
Life with a cold has been. . .well. . .challenging, confusing and hilarious!
I blame Vanessa (but not really). See, I had an appointment scheduled for Wednesday to have my hair cut. But we were home last weekend, and I thought, hey, maybe I can change my appointment and have my hair cut earlier!
So I sent a text.
But then the next morning. . .
I should of known something was up when I told her "didn't see it till after 19!" By that point, I noticed that I had a tickle in my throat. "It's nothing" trying to reassure myself. "It's just a sympathy soar throat!."
But I was wrong!
My Faithful Sherpa had planned on working on the boat all day Saturday. "Don't worry, I'll stay out of your hair! I have a long list of errands to run!'
See, the list went on and on! But as soon as I got into the car to head out, I noticed I was tired. I didn't want to go anywhere. So I turned around and headed straight for my trailer.
"I'm just going to stay here."
I loved it. It was quiet, I had a nice view (if I looked above the other containers,) and I was protected from the wind.
But by the time made it back down to the boat, late that afternoon, I knew I had been hit with a cold!
I spent the next five days, shuffling to work, then shuffling back home to the couch. I had to keep going to work, I had a lot of projects on my desk, and I couldn't put them off any longer! But my heart wasn't in it,
It was my knitting projects that were the only thing I wanted to work on. It was easy for me, I didn't have to think. my fingers knew just what to do!
Typically, at night, when I head to bed, I spend about 30 minutes either reading on my iPhone, or flipping thru my photos. I knew I must have been feeling better because last night my photos made me laugh out loud!
This is what happens when you accidentally take photos when you are sick. . .you get these randomly weird images.
Like this. . .
and this. . .
My fingers, obviously didn't "know just what to do" when they were taking these photos. What the heck!
But the more I looked at these photos, inspiration started to pop thru. I wasn't sure if its because I was feeling better, but I began to see these randomly weird images in a different light. It's the colors!
Just look at the colors shining thru!
Well, maybe I still have a foggy head from this cold, but I love the color combinations these random photos have presented! And now that I'm feeling better, I think I'll start knitting these up into something fantastic!
