It's not H1N1, but...

You can tell I've been ill. Not H1N1, despite having almost half my class of fourth graders ill with flu-like symptoms, but I'm definitely not my usual Daisy-like self. A few giveaways:
A beautiful October day, and I didn't even open a window.

  • I didn't know that the bunny's litter box was due for a change until after my late shower cleared my sinuses enough to smell its, er, condition.
  • I haven't been online in three days.
  • I napped on and off all day, ignoring the lovely autumn weather.
  • I found Mythbusters hilarious, but hoped they composted the banana peels from their experiment involving slipperiness.
The biggest clue that I've been under the weather? I didn't take out the kitchen compost until after supper. It was near overflowing with three coffee filters, a stale PBJ, and more. A lovely day, the kind of day I'd like to be setting up the garden for winter by covering it with a blanket of leaves, pulling the mint or cutting back the mums, and all I did was rest on the couch.

Maybe the saying is all wrong - it would have been better if it were raining!

I hope you are feeling better. I have to say this past month has had me, and my fellow teachers concerned. Empty class seats that seem to grow...with the SI (they give it a different name in Korea) scare. Each child is screened at the door. A fever, and they go home immediately.

Play some beautiful music, nuture yourself and flourish again. My well wishes are sent to you.
