Sick v. II

Holy crap I am finally feeling better! I have been sick for a week now, 8 days actually!! That is just ridiculous if you ask my opinion.... although its not as if I've been dying over here or nuthin, just the flu... just enough to really get my whine on and feel like crap for a wasted week of my life.
The Portland Saturday Market went on without me this weekend, and I avoided the Halloween kiddos last night (I didn't think giving them the flu would be a nice trick-or-treat). However, I woke up yesterday determined to do something productive with myself. A girl can only sleep so much! So Tim and I went down to the Farmers Market. Then I went home and did laundry. That was enough to lay me up for the rest of the day.
Today I continue my climb out of this sicko hole: cleaning and shipping. Two things that need desperate attention in my life. Tim helped me pick up in the backyard, getting ready for winter and whatnot... putting away chairs and tables and umbrellas... sweeping leaves and cleaning the windows... now he has left for work and I am determined to box up a few orders that need to go out.
This last picture is for my Mom - she has always loved chestnuts and we'd roast them in the winter. I feel terribly that I got her sick as well.. but she told me yesterday she's on the up and up.

Its nice to be feeling better... feels like I'm getting my brain back and my will. The flu is simply wrong.

my very own brush with the swine flu! :) no culture here to prove it, but lets just say I consider myself immunized for this season.
