Today, I have an entire day to spend at home. A Play Day! Yes, I have laundry. Yes, I have the usual housework. I laughed when I typed that. Living in a home that is under construction, housework is anything but usual. I guess it has now become normal to me. What can I say, I'm living in part my dream home, part totally out of control workshop.
I have big plans for today. Went into the winery yesterday for a couple of wedding planning meetings While there, the owner of the winery and the new brewery, had something waiting for me. He had made a batch of stout and over the weekend pulled out some of the spent grains.
The aroma is incredible. Plans to play with it today. Bread, rolls, muffins, I'm excited to experiment. A play day in the kitchen!
I also have plans to work on a project.
I have big plans for today. My mind does anyway. My body, has other ideas. I've been telling Mr. Norm that we need a new mattress and new pillows. I'm not sleeping and having some neck and shoulder pains.
Now it's progressing and I woke up yesterday with a swollen area on my head behind the top of my ear. Now I'm looking like this
Not sure what is. It's making me mad. It is taking me away from my play time and I don't like it! I started this post early this morning. It is now 5pm and I have yet to accomplish any of my play day plans. Spent the day in bed. Don't remember the last time I felt this bad. What ever it is must be effecting my tear ducts too. I don't cry much. Oh, I tear up when I laugh or when I'm moved by something. But an all out uncontrollable cry, not in a long time. Well this morning I woke myself with hyperventilating cries. What the heck! It was none stop until 1pm. I finally feel asleep and was so relieved when I woke, the tears had subsided. I really makes me mad when I'm sick. It's such a waste of valuable time and I don't like admitting that I probably have to go see a doctor.
Update: Saw the doctor last night. The good news, I slept sound with all the drugs she gave me. Not so good news, I have a double ear infection. My lymph nodes are infected, unrelated to the ear infection. And she believes that I have ruptured a disc in my neck!
Today is a better day!
Enjoy your day!
