I Have A Cold
This happens. When I am away from the public for any extended time and then "re-enter", I pick up all sorts of germs. There is a "cold" going around where I work (teenagers and college students). Now I have it. Stuffy nose, cough, stuffed up head, chills. If it's the flu--more fool am I. I refused the flu shot. But the timing was such--I would be sick anyway.
The Oil Company plumber is downstairs working on the piping to the hall radiator. We are hoping a change of "venue" for the pipes will result in a warmer hallway. It's pretty noisy. So no napping until he is done-- especially when the soldering of the pipes sets off the fire alarm. That was exciting.
G is going to work. Riley has had his walk. I am here with a book to read and Netflix to watch. My rhubarb pie turned out to be very "tart". Delicious but needing a bit more sugar. I may just sprinkle the pie with the additional sugar. And the pie was delightfully ruby red. So often, rhubarb is green. Turns out the stuff I am growing (finally) is going to be very red.
Well, it's time for more DayQuil. Every four hours. And it makes me sleepy. G promises to remember to buy green NightQuil so I can sleep tonight.
