hot toddy time

I've recently been given the gift of time. The time to do nearly anything I want... at least in the short term :). While I won't say that every day has been easy street, I am significantly enjoying myself and feeling really productive... at least until this week.

This week, I've come down with some nasty, mean, voice-stealing, throat-scratching virus. You know that episode of Friends where Phoebe has the sexy singing voice? Yeah, I don't have that. I've tried so many different remedies, pills, and potions that it is maddening. Today I walked 9 miles in part because walking is more distracting than watching tv and distractions are what make the scratching go away.

Fun note? On my second trip to the doctor's today, she asked me if I had tried their "magic mouthwash". I kid you not it felt like I was in the middle of Jack and the Beanstalk and someone tried to sell me magic beans not covered by Tufts Health Insurance. I bought the $30 magic juice... took a swig... and then read the bottle. No water for an hour after taking it. Pure torture. I gave up at 39 minutes.

Here are some other things I've done in the last two weeks:
  • organized my bookshelves by color
  • got rid of one more moving box (yes, I moved exactly 1 year ago today... I'm slow)
  • made some snack organizing boxes... and organized my pantry snacks. One box has "good snacks" the other is chex mix and gold fish.
  • worked out nearly every day
  • planted some flowers from seed. I'm hoping to grow some dahlias of all shapes and sizes. Double crossies.
  • whipped up this great asparagus salad
  • paid my library fines ($19) and got a new card
  • visited the seals nearly every day
