I’ve not got a lot to report right now. My first gift back to work this week was a cold from one of my students. Blech! My brain is working – slowly – and I’ve sort of got some half-formed ideas thrashing around in there. Nothing’s swum to the surface shouting “Pick me, pick me!” And that’s okay. With more garlic broth and sleep, something will eventually arise.
I’m still being nice to myself. Like now, I’m resting when I need to rest. I’m not going to force anything or beat myself up because I’m a bit behind. I can make it up later when I feel better.
I did do one thing fun, though, the day before I got the cold. I found a fantasy challenge about walking from Hobbiton to Mordor, to destroy the One Ring of Power. Sort of like walking in Frodo’s footsteps. It’s just another way to get back in shape using an interesting method. So, I signed up.
Bam! Got stuffy and snuffly, and haven’t felt like walking a step. That’s okay. Using another rmovie, I can say I’m emulating Bilbo – I’ll catch up to the dwarves later.
See y’all on Sunday!
