I meant to sit down and type up my usual Tuesday blurb yesterday, but I’ve been swamped. See: this hilarious post my friend sent me. (BTW: I’m in a complete love affair with my people lately. I’ve been a hot mess for months and I have no idea how they tolerate me, but they do. )
Speaking of being a hot mess. I’ve been dealing with a crazy sinus infection pretty much since the end of June. Prednisone, antibiotics, steroid nasal sprays, neti pot. There’s nothing that hasn’t been thrown at this thing. I finally had the opportunity to sit down with an ENT yesterday and relief is in sight.
I sent my Abram’s backpack to school today using a taxi delivery service. Yes, yes I did. We were running around crazy this morning, he forgot it, I had meetings and appointments all morning. It cost $10 and it was the best $10 I’ve spent in a really long time.
I finished my first September sock. And cast-on for the scoreboard scarf. I know the pattern is for a cowl, but then I’d have to do a provisional cast on and kitchner, and I just wanted something I could knit while watching the game.
I haven’t done any reading.
Netflix released the last season of Blacklist so I’ve watched a few episodes of that. I love James Spader. I don’t even care.
I haven’t been cooking much either. I conglomerated a couple google recipes to make a chicken and wild rice soup in the crock pot. It tasted great but ended up more sludge then soup. I put it in the big soup pot with more chicken broth to thin it out a little bit but it never did end up looking very pretty. Violet said it was great as long as you closed your eyes while eating it. (Love her.) I’m hoping once this sinus issue is resolved (in the next two or so weeks), I’ll be back to feeling more get-up-and-go in the kitchen. In the mean time, we’re all enjoying peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
I’m having some issues with photos not uploading to my host, so until I can get that resolved, please be patient with that ugly blue question mark photo. Hopefully, it will be resolved soon.
I’m glad you got things up and running again! I’m just about to run out the door to work our school’s crap-free book fair, so I will be back tonight to leave a proper comment. Have a good day, Kate 🙂 .
I’m so sorry you’ve been feeling unwell, Kate. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you that the ENT has the answer.
Violet’s response to the sludgy soup made me smile. And it got me to thinking how nice it is (“nice” being a total understatement!) when kids get old enough to either be stoic about minor things, or to have developed sufficient empathy to understand that their parents are actually trying their best but sometimes things just don’t work out or go as planned.
The taxi thing made me laugh out loud, Kate. I’m not sure on a morning like that if I would have had the brainpower to be as quick thinking and resourceful as you were!
Love the scoreboard scarf 🙂 . Who are you making it for?
I DID feel very proud of myself for coming up with that solution. If only my brain was as capable of such quick thinking and resourcefulness on most days! (Usually, in those situations you can find me rocking back and forth in the fetal position moaning about how I’m failing miserably at keeping all the moving pieces moving in the right direction.)
Thank you! We’re Packer fans around here so I’m hoping for lots of green and just a little gold. I haven’t earmarked who the recipient may be, but I always try to get to one or two games a season (it’s a bit of a drive, so we don’t go every year) so I may just keep it for myself. 🙂
And thank you re: the fingers crossed. It’s gotten a little worse, before it’s getting better, but the end is in sight. And that helps a lot. Hope all is going well with you!
