It's going to be 100 degrees today, and I am covered in blankets, drinking hot chamomile and snuggling with a hot water bottle. Yes, I have the flu, and no, I don't care what kind it is. It's just the flu, and it stinks. Period (and yes, I'm on that, too).

Under "normal" circumstances, I would still be chasing after the Little Guy in this condition, but C happens to be here this week and so they are having school together, dipping apple-halves in tempera paint while I moan and groan indoors.

I am a terrible patient. Terrible enough that I went outside with them at first for circle time and then told The Yellow House (normally The Red House, but we only have yellow and green apples growing in the backyard) complete with props. Then I came inside to collapse, but feel too uncomfortable to sleep, so here I am.

The rest of today's plans include working on the header for my new wordpress blog (new logo = SO CUTE). No, I am not leaving LJ, but rather will be directing my domain name to wordpress instead of my website. My actual website is useless and I'm sick of paying for the hosting. I'd rather spend that $15/month on an ad somewheres. When I launch the new set-up, LJ will become friends-only and public entries will be x-posted. Fun! 

Oh hey, lookie what I finished and blocked yesterday:

It's the Whisper Cardigan from Interweave. I will take some real pics when I don't feel mostly dead. It fits perfectly. I don't think I've ever knit anything that fit perfectly, but it's happened. I would like it, except that it took forever (laceweight yarn = UGH) and so I've grown to detest the color and shape of the thing. I'm sure that will wear off as soon as the temperature cools and it's practical to wear a cardigan. I did add a few inches to the bottom since I don't go for that cropped look. I regret not modifying the sleeves to be full-length as I've never understood the 1/2 and 3/4 sleeve styles. I either want sleeves or I don't. Oh, well.

Another project from yesterday:

Walking blocks for the Little Guy...C grabbed some wood that was destined to become kindling and created many hours of fun.

Alright, fading out...let's hope I can teach my felting class on Saturday...
