being at home

zamzamI'm home from work with a sore throat, fever and everything. Did I have time for this? No. But well, there's not so much to do about it, except resting in the sofa with hot tea + honey and a cozy dog (who, by the way, stole my pillow while I was making myself some soup for lunch). I'm reading a little bit, sleeping a bit, not doing so much else. Yesterday afternoon I had a bit more energy and painted/collaged a "sign". Today it's been snowing and quite dark so the photo is a bit dark and since I'm using my laptop ... well, Photoshop and this computer, they don't get along very well. So to say. Anyway, this painting-collage-kind of thing is a bit messy, but it was fun making it. It's an old saying written on it, a kind of rhyme, that my grandma used to have (and still has? I don't remember) over the entrance door of their house. I'm not good at translating, but it's saying something like "Be a friend of the house when you enter, and be in the same [state of mind?] when you leave" (sorry, my English isn't the best ...). I really like it and for many years I have had this message on my door (although I'm not sure anyone noticed). Now I made a big sign instead ;-)

my house ...
I'm not feeling a bit better now than in the morning - actually it's getting worse for each day - so I'll have to stay at home from work tomorrow too. zamzamToday I've been too tired to craft, but maybe tomorrow I can knit a bit? I hope so. Zam is still on my pillow, dreaming 'cause his legs are moving. It's not fun going out in the snow for a dog walk when having the fever, but it's worth it because he's the best company when I'm home and tired all day.

hi!
well your dog is soooooooo sweet! you should rest the more you can. your body needs all its strength to kill those viruses inside you and the best you can do is standing still.it's boring I know but your body is working real hard even without you noticing it! do like your dog and lie still... sleep the more you can... and yes soup and lemon tea with honey will help! and your dog is reaaaaaaly sweet!
