Rainy, achy and still coughing

Had a bit of a setback last night. I was up until 6 a.m. coughing. I still feel like crap but I have to go to church to do altar guild cleanup tomorrow. Zach's throat is hurting and he feels crummy, too, so he's going to stay home. I'll just try to avoid close contact with people and not shake hands during the peace.

I've gotten 4 loads of clothes done today although those stairs are killing my knees. Not to mention my head is pounding, too, probably from all that coughing.

I got some work done on the vest last night. Up past the armholes. I won't finish up tonight because I'm not feeling like knitting but I hope to deliver the vest next Sunday. Bette won't be there anyway tomorrow.

It rained all day, sometimes hard and it's cool enough for a heavy jacket. I think it's good we don't have the stuff in the ground yet. Maybe next weekend. I've said before you can't plant before May.

I finished up Fringe and really liked it. I had gotten an Irish miniseries starring Tony Doyle (from Ballykissangel) but it was pretty boring. He played a father whose wife died and he became bitter and angry about everything and took it out on his kids. His son left home and didn't stay in contact. The father would manipulate the girls who remained at home with guilt about leaving him. He finally marries again, just so he can have a wife and some normalcy. Not because he loved her. Eventually he starts being abusive toward her but persuades her that he's not so she keeps staying. It was just that there was no build up toward anything. Just a lot of him being mean and the girls crying because he wouldn't let them follow their dreams. Normally I love British, Irish and Scottish stuff but this just didn't have any life to it.

On the other hand if I felt better I might actually enjoy it so maybe I should try again tomorrow if I feel better.

So tonight I'm watching Lovejoy season 1. I started it a long time ago and couldn't get into it but this time I'm really enjoying it. I guess timing is everything with me.

Well, off to put the last load into the dryer and fold the load that's in there now. Then I can have a scalding hot shower that might make me feel better.
