Fortunately, this photo isn't mine.
The first commandment of a seasoned blogging pirate is never to blog whilst sick or in a bad mood. (Or, as it often happens, both at the same time.) I am going to break it slightly. But only a tiny bit.I'm not in a bad mood at all, although I'm feeling rather sick this weekend. It always makes me wonder - how is it possible to start coughing and blowing your nose when there's a sunny summer weather outside? It's an absolutely understandable state for any other time of the year. But the summer...the summer, when the sun is shining, everything is singing, and calling you to come out to enjoy nature. And you are obliged to stay home to take pills and herbal teas. It's a shame to miss out on so much fun.
Oh well - viruses tend to catch you unawares. You end up having to put off all your plans and cancel all your outings, to sit all alone with your Kleenex. The only thing that could make you feel happier is a bouquet of roses and some takeout Thai food.
I realize that I have forgotten how to act when I'm sick. I find myself too close to the computer, the easel, and the fridge.
Naturally, when I feel better, I will return to my life of swashbuckling adventure. I will visit all of you, so as to be updated on your summer fun. I wish you good health, so that you don't get sick, and get the most out of the season.
