Clothing Made of Porcupine Quills

I am pretty certain that the clothes I'm wearing were woven using porcupine quills. The little bug that has attacked my immune system is responsible for that. If I can catch him I'll mash him.

Being stuck inside when you have an entire list of things needing your attention is no fun. But, this is not going to be a rant about that. Rather, it will be a positive outlook on things you can do to entertain yourself.

  • Count the cobwebs in the corner of your room. 
  • Count the dust bunnies under the bed. (Don't lean over too long or you'll get lightheaded.)
  • Stare at the pile of stuff that needs sorting, tossing, and reorganizing, and promise yourself you'll get to that soon. 
  • Read a book. 
  • Listen to an audiobook
  • Send a friend out to the library to retrieve books for you to read. (Say please.) 
  • Make plans to finally donate or sell those hundreds of books you have already read that are stacked up in various places around the room. (Remember, the last time you were sick you promised to take care of that?)
  • Drink lots of hot tea with lemon and honey. 
  • Eat cinnamon rolls. 
  • Watch old movies on DVD or TCM (if you have it). Restart them later when you wake up because you probably won't remember what happens when you're asleep. 
  • Drink more tea with honey and lemon. 
  • Ignore anyone who dares come and ring the doorbell. They're obviously not thinking clearly.

Well, that's my itinerary for the weekend. Hope your schedule is better.

  1. Day 11 of this little misadventure today. I did managed to write a few things between those 8 to 10-hour naps. I don't know if any of it will make sense when, Lord willing, the editing process begins.
