Wow, I had a nasty bout with the flu (for lack of a better term) this time around. My doctor put me on antibiotics last week, and that helped me turn the corner.
While I was sick, I mostly slept, but I indulged in some guilty-pleasure TV at intervals–“American Pickers” and “The Fabulous Beekman Boys” proved to be a real kick. I laughed out loud at the latter–two city boys on a farm. Watching them chase and bathe (yes, bathe) pigs was, well, priceless. I also watched three movies–“Brideshead Revisited” and “It’s Complicated” and “Leap Year”–on my iPod. It’s funny how fast the 2 inch square screen becomes a nonissue.
Before the advent of the plague I had acquired an iPad. I think I told you–it was just too much for me to resist. I’m still getting to know this device, but I’m already amazed, I’ll say that.
And the rain continues to fall. I know we need it. I could also do with a break. Even the horses have been staying in the barn.
I’m ready for summer.
