Under the weather.....

Another 4" of snow to repeat yet again the cycle of: *wet heavy snow, freezing rain, 2" of ice to chip off a 1/10 mile driveway, achieve dry pavement* repeat until winter calendar has run out.

I intentionally wrote that as knitting instructions because I've been playing around with a couple of designs. However, they are not likely to be written out but charted instead. Since Ravelry will be hosting patterns, there will be a place to post them.

Meanwhile, news reports state that this year's flu vaccine was not spot on for the strain of flu that is circulating.

I can attest to that.

I did have my flu vaccine. I have also had the aching muscles, hair that hurts, nausea, dragged through the back end of a cow feeling for the past 24 hours. No fever, though.

Perhaps the vaccine I did get provides partial coverage and this is just my "copay" or "deductible".

Gotta love today's healthcare system. I'm going back under the afghan with the cat.


  1. It plowed through our staff, taking down five at one time, of whom three required IV antibiotics. I had the shot and still ended up taking three days of sick leave. I liberally applied the cat and afghan treatment and declare it successful.

    Feel better soon! I love the "copay" analogy. Fingers, toes, legs & eyes crossed that we don't get it here.

  3. Ugh. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this is a fast acting flu.

    Weather. *Pfffftt*!!!

  4. I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling well. Rest and relaxation under the covers is probably the best medicine.

    I completely agree with Lee's sentiment about the weather here. Pfffttt!

    Sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well.knock on wood here. Sarah had it last week but I steered clear of that house.
    Finally finished the scarf and hat from Homespun Handknit, now I think I need a pair of mittens to match. Spun some Carly fur and marino this morning.Sarah needs a hat for her March 31st.-- 12th. birthday!!
    Stay warm,

  6. I've heard a number of people being struck down with the flu. I hope that you are feeling much better.
