For the first time in ages, I woke up on Tuesday and declared it a sick day. I’ll spare you a detailed list of my ailments and just say that this lady bear needed some hibernation. I passed out until around 11:00 and even then felt like I was lingering in a sniffly fog.
Once found the energy to meandered to the kitchen where I proceeded to drink my body weight in Detox Tea from Perk & Pearl. I don’t know what is in there (yes I do: ginseng, ginkgo, and spearmint) but it is lovely.
And then, because I was home, I decided to decorate for Christmas. So I tied a ribbon on Fern and coaxed Little Fox to stand beside it and look pretty and then declared the job done. And look how much bigger our Christmas Fern is this year than last year! Growth. It’s a beautiful thing.
Then, because I promised I would, I shot a tutorial for making the Fiction Feathers we made for our AU Takeover at Oxfam Bookshop on Sunday (which, by the way, was so. much. fun. But I caught Shopgirl Fever real bad and now all I can think about is owing my own store!). I’ll be posting it to Artists Unveiled soon.
See? Cute. I think I’m going to make a Fiction Feather garland and hang it somewhere. Maybe above our headboard… Yes, definitely above our headboard.
When I am sick, there is nothing I love more than a steaming bowl of potato leek soup. Magically, I had all the ingredients on hand so I chopped and peeled and simmered and boiled things in a big pot.
And then I sat on my sofa with a steaming bowl of soup in and watched White Christmas before going to bed. Divine!
So that’s pretty boring, but there you have it. A sick day! (I’m feeling much better now, thanks for asking.) I hope you have a wonderful day, dear reader, and remember to take care of yourself! xx
