Tuesday afternoon something went wrong, tummy wise. I was fine for the first half of Tuesday but by the time Tim got home I was doubled in half on the sofa, with chills. Tuesday night I slept quite fitfully and at 4:30 am got up and cancelled my 8am class and my morning appointments--the chills were gone but my tummy still hurt a lot. I felt a bit better Wednesday late morning so went in for a meeting and then a meeting with an architect (more on that later). Today my tummy is still quite tender (I skipped exercising, but would use just about any excuse to skip that!) but I slept well last night so feel a bit better today.
I think it was only the third time I cancelled class in 25 or so years of teaching so I felt OK about it.
I could only concentrate on the most basic knitting:
So the BIG NEWS is that Tim and I met with the architecture firm who is going to design our new house! We are going to build a house on the Oregon coast on the property we've owned for a long time--we've been saving our pennies for a while and are now ready to begin! We met the architect a while ago at a Home Show and he and Tim (and our builder, who is out on the coast) got together a few weeks ago to visit the site and to have a powwow. He has great ideas (his name is Nir, by the way) and his firm does gorgeous work, so we are glad to be moving forward. Stay tuned!
