I spent most of the past week in bed with a nasty cold. Seriously. Most days I didn't even change out of my pyjamas. When I had the energy I watched episodes of Farscape streaming from Netflix. Most of the time I slept.
The cats definitely seemed to appreciate me being around. So did the birds because I actually managed to fill the feeders later in the week.
It was awful lying there, knowing that the spring thaw had started and that I was trapped inside unable to paddle all those lovely creeks and rivers. Friends were posting all kinds of reports of awesome paddling runs, and also skiing, and a few did BOTH the same day. Watching science fiction characters go through adventures didn't help much, because *I* wanted to be the one out there, having adventures.
But Sunday I had enough energy to get my stuff together and go do a local creek run with a friend. Here's the trip report on American Whitewater:
It helped that the creek is only 30 minutes from my house.
I feel better today. Still coughing up some residue, but well enough to go to work and try Body Pump class tonight.
A friend got me started taking "Wellness Formula" that she swears boosts her immune system. www.amazon.com/Source-Natural
466?tag=manifolds-20 We'll see. I paid more than twice that at the local health food store, for only 180 pills. *sigh*
