I was on leave last week....a whole week away from the office! I was so glad to have some time for doing just what I wanted to do for a change!
It didn't work out quite like I'd planned.
On Day One (Saturday) I did some laundry and household drudgery with (naturally) some knitting tossed in here and there.
On Day Two (Sunday) I went to visit my parents. Mom had an upper respiratory thing going on which was distressing, but otherwise it was a good day.
On Day Three (Monday) I went to a local park and spent a lovely day exploring their nature center and walking the lakeside trail, snapping digital photos of beautiful fall color.
On Day Four (Tuesday) I woke up sick. Can you believe it? I'd caught Mom's cold. Is my luck crappy or what??
So here's the good news: Mom's much better, and I was well enough to return to work today. And my brief illness caused me to have to stay in the apartment and rest. Which I needed. REALLY needed.
One day I didn't feel well enough to knit, but the other days were filled with mugs of hot tea, an Alka-Seltzer Cold medication buzz, and lots of yarn.
All in all, not a bad week. :-)
