Today was my first day back at school (I'm a high school teacher) after a week and a half off with Whooping Cough. That makes me one tired, tired person.
Every day I'm getting better and stronger. Comparing how I feel today versus the last while, I'd say I've been fighting this disease for at least a month if not longer. My doctor thought the increased tiredness could have been caused by stress.
The stress assumption is accurate given some family troubles that I've been caught up over the past 6 months. The less said about that the better.
I suspect the stress had the effect of knocking my immune system to bits, hence the Whooping Cough.
Anyway, the antibiotics are working. I'm working. I'm also joining my husband on his nightly walking of the dog. We do around 3km every evening. We live near a golf course so the walking is very pleasant. We see kangaroos every evening when we walk. I never get tired of seeing those lovely creatures even though I see them almost every day.
Cancer scans are all clear. Early January will mark 9 years since diagnosis.
Diva Challenge #243
Here are my attempts.
Excuse the purple on this one. The blending didn't work as well as I'd hoped.
My new supplies of tiles came in the mail last week, including a big bundle of Renaissance tiles. I love Renaissance tiles and what other Tanglers manage to do with them.
My package also included black tiles. This is the first time I've bought them. Seeing other Tanglers use them for Diva challenges has inspired me. This tangle is Rixty which is a favourite. Thanks to Shelley Beauchamp for showing it to me.
Have a great week people and thanks for viewing and commenting on my blog. Thanks also for all the supportive comments about my health. Your comments make a difference to me.
