After a solid week of feeling really disgusting, I am now very much better.  I hate when I feel sick.  Hate it.  I whine, whinge, complain, kvetch, grouse, you name it, I do it.  The poor Hubbs has to listen to it all, but I listen to him when he's grumpy so it's fair play.

At any rate, I'm now pretty much human, and thank you very much, but I don't need to do this again for a year.

To celebrate my lovely good health, I'm taking the day off and playing.  I should be doing tons of stuff and I know it.  But one week of gross and pain needs a reward.  So, I'm sewing a doll dress, and then I think I'll bake a loaf of bread, and then some delicious knitting.

No pics 'cause I have nothing to show you except me as a happy camper.  ;-)

You know what's coming tomorrow:  Yep, Hurricane Irene is heading our way.  The wind will blow, the rain will flow, the driveway will overflow, and I'm trying to convince His Nibs to put the backyard  furniture into the garage.  He figures he'll tie it all together and that will make it safe from 90 mph winds.  I think the winds will pick the mess up and swing it against a window and we'll have serious ventilation.  Let's hope he's right, 'cause if he's not, he'll never hear the end of it from me.  Not that I would pick on him or anything.  Not me.

All you east coasters, batten down your hatches, make sure you have flashlights, candles and matches, books to read, knitting to do, and a good supply of water.  Yep, I know:  bottled water.  Sometimes you just have to buy the stuff.  If there's any left at the market.  As much as I'd love a summer house down the shore, am I ever glad I live inland and miles from the ocean.

Stay safe, all!  And if you are across the pond or somewhere where you are not going to have weather, enjoy the peace!

scrapperjen - Thanks.  I'm feeling much better although I still have to watch that dairy moment.  We were so lucky with Irene!  No damage and a power outtage of only about 5 hours!

Everybody else with comments:  Thank you.  We are just fine, my body is behaving again, and I'm back in the world.  Yippee!

Do you have evacuate? It won't hit us here in the fingerlakes of NY, but parts of NYC are being evacuated!
Hope everything goes well with you and you and your house stay safe!

Stay safe! Were only getting a teeny bit of the weather here. Were pretty far inland so we'll probably just get some heavy rain. Be safe and get some knitting done! No power can be a great excuse for a romantic evening of candle light knitting ^_^!

I'm glad you're feeling better and hope Irene didn't cause too many problems for you.
Have a super week!
