I had all these great plans to do post after post of the Scotland photos. I just give up. John got ahead of me and did a Picasa photoshow, complete with captions, so I’m just going to link to it and leave it at that. I will admit that even I’m a bit overwhelmed by all the photos we took. Here it is, go have a look. He picked a pretty good representation of where we went and what we did.
This week is starting off a little badly. I had the weekend off, which was great, except that yesterday I felt like crap. By evening I was feeling better, so figured I was over it, but woke up this morning still feeling like I had a bug. I went as far as taking a shower before I just threw in (down?) the towel and called in sick. I generally think that staying home sick is a real waste of time, since if I’m sick enough to stay home, I don’t feel like doing much else either. I guess that fits with the “surrender” theme. Oh well. I’m feeling better at this point, so will drag my sorry butt out of bed tomorrow and get to work whether I feel like it or not. If I spend too many days sick in bed, I can convince myself that I really AM sick.
Knitting is proceeding. I’ve fallen in love with that True Blood Faery sweater again. I’m still on the first sleeve, but it’s going well. Here’s a crappy photo or two. It looks much like it did the last time I showed it, but it really is bigger.
OK, I’m off to collapse on the sofa again, with a book and a cup of tea. Fortunately I have a huge stash of good books to sustain me!
P.S. Thanks for all the great birthday wishes! I might surrender and never get around to answering all the comments, so I figured I better say it here.
