For what it's worth, here is some hodgepodge of the recent week:
I'm having a hard time getting back into things since returning from Madagascar. Haven't quite been able to re-establish a good routine. Nuria and I have resumed our daily walks, and that helps somewhat. Still, I have sewing to do, jewelry to make (and yes, photograph:P), art to create, and a book to edit, not to mention a house to clean. What would I do if I had a "job" as well?
The other night, I got stung on the back by a baby centipede (a gray-bodied one with red legs; that's a first). It was hiding in the loofah and slipped out while I was scrubbing away. After stinging me, it slid in the soap suds to my feet and I realized the ouchie on my back wasn't from me inadvertently scratching myself. Of the three bites I've now had, it hurt the least.
We've been having computer problems...again. This time, it is both the desktop and the laptop. One won't even start (thank goodness we backed up the photos to the external HD before erasing them from the camera's memory cards) and the other is dragging and won't start Yahoo messenger. Just keeps giving me a message about the image not being a valid Windows image or some such. I'm trying to reinstall it, but every time I do, I lose the net connection.
We have another cherry tomato growing. Wow, that makes a production of four for five plants. Really worth all the water we give the darned things.
I'm sick. I don't know what it is going to evolve into, but Monday night I had a stuffy head that stayed mild but annoying until yesty afternoon when my throat suddenly erupted in pain. That was followed by head-to-toe achiness so severe I thought I was going to throw up when J tried to massage me and random flashes of nausea, pain in my left shoulder, and extreme fatigue.
