As you can tell from my last post, I got hit w/ the flu. I tried to go back to work on Tues., but ended up going home w/ a fever and an ear infection. Managed to go to work on Thurs. but thought my head was going to explode and went home early. Yesterday, I was finally going to make it thru a full day of work, but was then sent home early due to the weather. Worst part is that my ear has yet to unclog, even with only 1 pill left of my antibiotics. Sigh. I have managed to watch just about every program on my DVR. It wasn't until about 2 days ago that I could deal w/ knitting again. Because of that, I have not exercised since, well, in over 10 days. So much for starting my tri training, huh?
We did, however, get our first "lasting" snow in Philly. I say lasting, b/c it's been on the ground for about 24 hours. Doubt it will last much longer. So much for winter in the northeast! Here's a "winter" picture from my apartment.
I mentioned before that I have been making things for my new niece, who will be born a week from Tues. Right now I'm working on something for her to wear on the way home from the hospital. I had picked a really cute color yarn, but it was striped and too confusing. Now it's a boring cream. Not so thrilled w/ it, but since I'm now crunched for time and have 3/4 of it finished, I'm not starting over again.
I also made these cute little hand mitts and matching hat for the baby:
