I’m finally starting to feel better, I had a case of bronchitis that apparently decided to take up residence in my upper respitory system and liked it so much in there that it started re-decorating and moving around the furniture and decided it just wasn’t going to budge, no matter what kind of earth-moving coughs I threw at it. Well, three different kinds of cough medicine and some strong antibiotics have finally started the eviction process and those nasty bacteria are relunctantly making their way out of my body. Good riddance is all I can say.

I didn’t do much while this was happening. For some reason, all I wanted to do was read and knit socks. One sock finished:
That’s an Embossed Leaves sock from Interweave Knits. I’ve only made one other pair of socks, so I was quite impressed with myself for making this one. I’ll start the second one shortly. To guard against second sock syndrome I started on a pair of Jaywalker socks, which I mentioned below. I finished one of those too, but haven’t taken a picture yet. Maybe this weekend.

I also took a couple pictures of some of my birthday loot:
My lovely sister-in-law read about my love of pink cafe au lait bowls and sent me these two from Williams-Sonoma. They are so cute! I will have to make some hot chocolate this weekend and use them. So now I have the beginning of a collection! That means I have an excuse to check eBay regularly, right?

Speaking of collections, I received this cute little tea-for-one set from my mom and my sister:
More blue and white! It arrived just in time, as I’ve been drinking copious amounts of lemon-ginger tea and peppermint tea these last couple weeks. A friend also gifted me with some lovely tea bags and that cute jar of lemon curd. I have more to share later this weekend. That little photo shoot just wore me out. Tomorrow is Sweet Pea Day, so I will be enjoying fresh air and sunshine, both of which I’ve seen very little of these past weeks. I’m so happy about that! Hooray for Spring! And good health!
