Well, my horrible cold turned into bronchitis. I have been on the couch for 3 1/2 days now. Today I have a bit of energy. I have folded laundry, during which I felt every ache in my back and shoulders. Geez. Maybe I will soak them in a bath later. 

I think that the worst part of all of this is not being able to do anything and the awful taste that the antibiotics make in my mouth. It has been quite awhile since I did nothing for 3 days! Dave has been wonderful, taking care of me, making me chamomile tea and cleaning up. 

Lleulu was scared of my cough at first. She is back to normal now curled up beside me. I just looked over and her head is covered in dirt! She looks like she just visited an ash Wednesday service. I think that she has been digging in her cat grass pot. Time to move it outside! I can't have her digging in my plants.

I have been watching my seeds grow. My tomatoes have finally sprung their second set of leaves! Dill, basil,and pak choi have sprouted beautifully. I am hoping that the warmth of the laundry today will give the eggplant and jalepeno seeds the boost they need to get sprouting. I might start some flower seeds this afternoon if I feel like it. That is  pretty low key and relaxing. 

One more day at home, then back to work. I have needed these days. It seemed like a long time to be out of work at first. Now I see that the doctor was right and I need the time to heal. 

I was hoping to get some beans in the ground, but it looks like rain this weekend. More rest for me I suppose. That's a good thing. I am off to fold some more laundry, eat lunch and rest! Happy Tuesday!

I am grateful to your doctor to forcing you to rest. Your body needed it. I haven't had bronchitis since I was a kid but I remember it as being awful. I hope you continue to feel better.

Hope you get to feeling better soon Kara. It took my hubbie a long time to get over his bronchitis. So, take care of yourself!
