being sick/making soup

I am sick.  Being sick really sucks a lot.  You all know this.

When I stay home sick, I piddle around the house and clean.  It can take all day, partly because housework will expand to fill the time, but also because I feel lousy.  I take medicine, and when it kicks in I.Feel.Great! – so much better than I did when I was irrevocably glued to the bed.  I get up, drink 4 cups of black tea with sugar, and become SuperProductive for about three hours.  Then crash.

I understand some people just watch a movie.  That probably would have been wise.

I did three loads of laundry, two loads of dishes, swept and mopt (this is how this word should be spelled) the house, put the bread dough that Merlin and I made on Sunday into the oven, and made Potato and Kale soup from an old Cooking Light recipe. Most of this activity took place between 10:47 and 2:15.  At 2:15 I started coughing again, so I made my 5th cup of tea and settled in to watch Color Splash on HGTV and The f word on BBC America.

Now I am going to eat my soup and then take some Nyquil.

I need to fix the date stamp on my camera.  And I will post recipes when I figure out how to insert code into my blog template to enable cut tags.  Jeez, this should not be difficult.
