Says It, All Right

Sometimes a present is so on point, all you can do is laugh.

My brother arrived safely on Friday and we've been having a peaceful good time. I hope you enjoying things, too, whatever that means to you.

Just Allergies: When Negative Is Positive

My allergies have been so bad for so long this fall-into-winter that I got tested for covid, just to be sure. It was negative (and thanks to Walgreens for the quick results), which is of course very good news. However, the allergies are really rotten and I am sick of all the sinus pressure and congestion. It feels like it's been going on for months.

Better than covid, better than covid. I know. But ow.

Holiday Cheer

Last month, I bought knitters cookie stamps from Juniper Moon Farm, and today I tried them out! Gingersnaps, yum.

There are three designs. A knit pattern:

A sheep:
And a knit heart:
They didn’t come out as well for me, I think because the cookies weren’t big enough. But the other two look pretty good! I gave some to various neighbors, and kept some for us, of course. Yum.

In other sheep news, I got some new pajama pants.
Which got the coveted Maggie seal of approval!
They are very soft.

I'm Fine

I just haven't been blogging, have I? Work is crazy-busy and it's Christmas-prep-time and there's the pandemic, and it just seems like I'm always tired. But I didn't want you to think there's anything wrong-wrong here. I'm fine. We're fine. Well ... pandemic-fine, at least. 

Which, says Maggie, is about the best we can do these days.

So Low

Y'all, I am so tired.

Not that I've ever been a high-energy person, but based on yesterday and today, I think I have to consider this part of the aftereffects of getting my booster shot. The sore arm/shoulder and tender lymph nodes are much better, but wow, so tired. So, so tired.

(Obligatory disclaimer: It's worth it, I'm not sorry to have gotten the booster, I would do it again, this isn't as bad as getting covid, etcetera, etcetera. Just, wow, so tired.)

So. Tired.
