Knitting mittens to pass the time while sick with the flu.

There are disadvantages to being sick, but there are definite upshots to it, too! One of those being lots of time to sit or lie on the couch with an excuse to either do nothing or knit or watch the end of Lord of the Rings (!).


Today, however, is Monday - which means not a minute of respite. The peaceful feel of yarn in my hands while children play Monopoly and the Russian watches the news is a distant memory.

But ah! T'was sweet indeed!

Quoi? tu es malade et je n'étais pas au courant!
C'est pour ça que tu n'as pas accompagné K hier? Désolée, mais mon portable était à plat et je n'ai reçu ton SMS que hier soir tard. Je te dis, le week-end je ne sais pas gérer mon portable. Soit il reste sur ma table de chevet et n'attends que de pouvoir me réveiller un nouveau matin ou alors il traîne quelque part dans une poche ou dans la maison en attendant d'être consulté de temps en temps en quête de nouveaux messages, ce que je dois apprendre encore à faire le week-end et non seulement durant la semaine.
Bref, je te souhaite un prompt rétablissement! A bientôt

Hope you feel better very soon. Monday is definitely not my favorite day of the week.

I, too, was wondering how you took the picture of both your hands. LOTR is great for watching when you're not feeling well. May you have a good week!

Nancy said...

Feel better, Allison. Take care of yourself.

And... have a great week!

Linda said...

Oh I hope you feel better! And I hope you can sneak in some time to rest and knit even today on the Monday-est of Mondays.

Enjoy knitting kittens mittens while you get better, vitamin C ? ,,,M

CountryDreaming said...

May you get well soon the better to enjoy all these things you're enjoying now ... knitting, watching Lord of the Rings, or just sitting and thinking ... even on a Monday.

I hope you don't have to work too hard today and can push it off a bit. I love that your kids play Monopoly! My sis and I would spend hours/days completing a game. She is 4 yrs older than me and would always win. She'd prolong the torture by lending me money to get me further and further into debt, just to watch me lose longer. :)

Feel better, dear!

Meg said...

So sorry you're sick! That's a bummer. :( At least you did get knitting time! Hope you're feeling better soon. *hugs*

Hope your felling better. Can't wait to see your finished mittens!

Diana (Di) said...

Allison, it sounds as though you are feeling better for the sense of humor is there; "thankfully", she mutters. ;)

Now that's what I should have done while I was a a bit under the weather... finish some knitting. Be well!

Randy said...

Sending you some healing vibes. I hope that you feel better soon! Looks like some warm and toasty mittens.
