I am terribly, terribly sick. It started Saturday morning with a sore throat. A really, really sore throat. Then the next day my sinuses got involved. They hurt too. So all my big plans for the weekend didn't happen. Well, that's not true. The engineer and the kid cleaned out the chicken coop for me while the weather was nice and I stayed quarantined in Sheville and quilted.
But the third day was the charm. Yep, on the third day the floods came. Out my nose that is. In the past three days I've used up two whole boxes of tissues. First I just used them like any normal and civilized person would. But by day two I was starting to look like Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer. So then I started stuffing them IN my nose. Kind of like little tampons for your face. I've since perfected it by just twisting two of the corners of a single tissue and shoving up inside each nostril. This allows the other two corners to hang loose and cover my mouth while sneezing. I think I'm going to market it and call it a Nasal Nellie.
