(Another) Sick Day
I am taking a sick day from work today. Yep, this horrid cold is still sticking around.
Home base today!
I am probably paying for yesterday when I didnt sit and rest all day. I was so set on getting a Christmas tree that I begged Torrance to chauffeur me to do it anyway. Luckily it was warm out yesterday (60!).
As much as I would have enjoyed going up to the mountains to have a tree cut at a tree farm, luckily in the 4 mile strip right around our house there are 6 places on the side of the road that tree farms “set up shop.” They cut a bunch of trees and bring them into town, for convenience I imagine. So we didnt have to go far…
We picked out a really nice 7 ft tree and headed home to set it up. As anxious as I was to decorate it I felt exhausted shortly after starting. So we got the lights on (red in the middle, white on the outside!) and star on. Also, I wanted to try something different this year and picked up something I am calling swizel sticks (glittery swirly sticks you put in the tree) so I did get those put in at least.
Those were a GIGANTIC mess because when you pull them apart glitter goes everywhere. After we were done, it looked like Ke$ha had stopped by our apartment.
I also got a total of 4 ornaments put on before I decided I would finish later.
I was going to wait to post a picture when it was a finished product but something about a Christmas tree just makes me smile anyway. I have a feeling I will finish decorating it today since I will need something to do sitting around the house all. day. long.
Since I’m not a great source of entertainment today and I dont have any good workouts or fun eats to share from over the weekend since I mostly consumed soup; I will leave you with a link to this article on ‘Staying Healthy’ (in spirit of my sickness) from Women’s Health Magazine (my favorite!). It may be stuff that we have heard a lot on building a kick ass immune system (eating healthy, wash your hands) but I think it serves as a good reminder.
Now, I have some super important “sick” business to tend to….
Snuggling with a brown dog always makes me feel better. Oh and coffee and oatmeal this morning (feels so good on my throat!)
I plan to spend a lot of the day in bed resting and watching reruns, perusing online, drinking lots of tea, hopefully catching up on my book which I havent read in a while….and probably some Christmas tree decorating later 😉
- How was your weekend?
- What is comforting to you when you are sick?
Tea, reruns, and a brown dog!
