Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much. ~ Oscar Wilde
Week 38. Each week this number goes up. Part of me still can’t believe I’m working from home, and this isn’t some colossal joke. (Maybe I’ve read too much Terry Pratchett? Is that even possible?) When I first started working from home, I contemplated even mentioning it on the blog. I worked from home for four weeks before posting about it. Even then I didn’t think it would be a regular feature. Now, I can’t remember the exact date I was last in the office. We had a possible return date that has again been pushed back as COVID cases continue to climb here in the PNW. All indoor gatherings like gyms, bars and restaurants are closed for the next few weeks. All holiday plans should only include your immediate household unless you can quarantine before and afterwards. You can still get take out. Since the British Hubby still isn’t feeling well, DoorDash is becoming my new best friend when I can’t be bothered to cook for myself.
What’s new here? This week I became an expert on removing deceased wildlife from one’s property. We had a deer die on our lawn. Also happening this week, the British Hubby has his first scan. Last week’s blood work all came back normal. Good news overall. He has days when he feels great, and days when he’s in pain. Maybe we’ll have some answers next week. Or maybe we’ll continue to eliminate what it’s not.
Ernie developed a sore above his eye. I’m not surprised since Ernie is slowly but surely washing off all his belly fur. The British Hubby thinks it’s sympathy pain. Fortunately, it is healing despite Ernie scratching the scab daily.
Since the British Hubby doesn’t always have an appetite right now, I’ve been trying to cook smaller meals. Frozen turkey burgers to the rescue. Well, sort of. Prepackaged turkey burgers are a bit bland. No matter how much one seasons the outside, the burger itself is still plain. I tried caramelizing some onions and mushrooms and then adding Havarti cheese. It made my burger edible, but in the end I dipped every bite in ketchup. I can’t say enough how fantastic keto buns are for quick meals.
SkeinHerder Ponders: This week I’ve been thinking about the Wim Hof breathing method. Check out this article. Give it a try. What do you have to lose? Everyone has to breathe. Why not see how your own body can heal itself?
This week I challenge you to try something new. Be brave. Step outside your comfort zone.
