Saturday night has rolled around again. I have no plans for the weekend other than staying in and resting.
I seem to be coming down with something. My school is filled with flu, Covid, and strep at the moment along with plenty of simple colds. I had a flu shot last month, and the latest Covid booster two weeks ago, so I'm hoping that this is just something simple like a cold. God forbid it turns out to be strep throat, which is the dominant illness there right now. I don't think so, though. So far, it's just sneezing, a mild cough, and some congestion in my chest along with some mild body aches. No fever (or not beyond a very mild one) so that's an encouraging sign. I'm feeling far from top form, though, that's for sure.
It's been a day of mostly sitting around watching tv and napping. I'm just beginning the final season of Lucifer (Netflix) which was recommended to me by a friend months ago and that I finally got around to starting recently. It's been the perfect show for me the last few weeks because it's funny and fun to watch and isn't very mentally taxing. Great distraction viewing during election season and a welcome break from the news. Also, Tom Ellis is a bit of eye candy, and that never hurts. :)
He looks great in a three-piece suit...or out of it.
We have a lot of the same things going around up here in Central Pa. Get healthy. I too am vaxed and flued (?).ReplyDelete
I'll take any vaccines I can get...being sick is no fun. Thanks Dave!Delete
Shortness of breath is terrifying. Good you are "relieved" of that for the time being,ReplyDelete
It certainly is. Thank you Joanne.Delete
Smart girl, stay in , snooze, eat some chicken soup - the best healer of all. Glad to know that you asthma has taken a back seat- whew! Horrifying to feel ill and unable to breathe. Monday morning rolls around way too soon ! I have a call in sick ticket- I am giving it to you!ReplyDelete
Thanks for that ticket! I'll probably use it. I think I've had some low grade fever, so it's best not to spread germs around.Delete
Dearie me, I do love the "Lucifer" series too! The final season is a doozy -- so enjoy!ReplyDelete
I will! Season 5 was fun too...especially the Bloody Celestial Karaoke jam episode! Haha.Delete
Linda Sue beat me too it. Wrap up warm, watch all those films you've always wanted to watch, and consume buckets of Chicken Soup. You'll soon be as right as rain.ReplyDelete
I picked up a bottle of bourbon and a bag of lemons yesterday (I already had honey on hand) so I can make myself hot toddies right before bed. Those help too.Delete
I so know what you mean about not wanting to watch dark stuff when all you want is some light entertainment (and I agree - a little eye candy does not hurt).ReplyDelete
At the moment, I am watching All Creatures Great and Small, the 2020 remake of the Yorkshire-based series about a vet in the 1930s. It is well made and gives me a little dose of Yorkshire whenever I watch it.
It is good to know that your asthma treatment really makes a difference. Get well soon, dear Jennifer.
I've heard of that show, it was based on books, right? It sounds good.Delete
The asthma treatment is making a huge difference for me. Thank you, Meike.
Yes, the books were hugely successful in the 1970s, written my James Herriot - a pen name for the real-life Yorkshire vet Alf Wright. My sister and I have been to the museum dedicated to him and his work, in the actual house where he and his family lived and where he practised.Delete
Good news about the asthma. We couldn’t get into Lucifer (at least not the show). I would enjoy more lighthearted shows, but SG loves the morose -- as if life isn’t morose enough, I tell him.ReplyDelete
I struggled to get into Lucifer in the first season, but then after that it got much better. I'm with you--morose isn't my thing. I'm too prone to depression and anxiety to do much morose.Delete
When we used to go to Palm Springs for an escape, SG would head to Blockbuster and rent every depressing film he could find. He’d spend the day in the room eating popcorn and crying. I’d spend the day in the pool. I told him life was depressing enough.Delete
From what I read, when Netflix renewed the show (just prior to the 4th season) they had Tom work with a strict trainer for three months to achieve that body. And what a body it is! :)ReplyDelete
Same three illnesses are hitting hard here too. Yes. It is wisest for you to stay home and stay away from others right now. Please take it easy, Jennifer. Be gentle with yourself.ReplyDelete
Hope a day of cozy rest helps you recover quickly, Jennifer! Take care!ReplyDelete
Take care of yourself! Sorry you're not feeling well. We have all the same stuff going around at our school too. Just autumn, I guess.ReplyDelete
We watched "The Sinner" but I agree -- I didn't like any of the subsequent seasons as much as the first. We tried to watch "Derry Girls" but it didn't grab me. I am liking Neil Patrick Harris' new comedy, "Uncoupled," though.
It seems like we all are dealing with sick kids. Not a fun time, to be sure. I'm glad that your asthma is not complicating things this fall.ReplyDelete
Now when did Lucifer Morningstar become sexy? He used to be an ugly thing as a punishment when thrown out of heaven.ReplyDelete
Well, wasn't he supposed to be a beautiful angel? And also, when he gets mad on the show, his devil face appears and it's pretty ugly!Delete
what are you using for your asthma? nothing I take is working..wheezing all the time.ReplyDelete
I use a Breo Ellipta inhaler once a day, and it's really helped a lot. You should look into it if you haven't already.Delete
