---And I wasn't even screaming!
I woke up Saturday morning with no voice,
a wicked sore throat,
a fever, aches, chills, the whole shebang.
So, no neighborhood clean-up,
no planting seedlings (sorry lil guys!),
no backyard BBQ.
I have awesome friends who take care of me.
(Because in case I forgot to mention, E was away again all weekend.)
Lydia whisked me away with a mug of tea & honey and a pile of comfy blankets, and we spread em all out and took a nice cozy nap at Elm Park under the glowing sunshine. Later on, my friend (more like sister) Abby called and demanded that I tell her what I needed from the store. All I could think of is what anyone ever asks for when they're sick: ginger ale, and she showed up a half hour later with that plus Ben & Jerry's.
& since Saturday I've watched the following movies:
-Coffee & Cigarettes (one of my favorites)
-Romeo & Juliet (the one with Leo and Claire, sigh)
-Marwencol (a fantastic documentary)
So, I'm taking this as some much-needed time for catching up on my sleep.
I'm not exactly a huge fan of sleep when there's fun to be had, so I guess this is necessary.
The only bummer is that it fell right in the middle of my weekend, and it's been amazingly warm out.
Oh, and here is MewithoutYou:

I'm in lerve.
