Simple Pleasures

It's amazing to me how fast time can fly. It's already been two weeks since my last post, but it doesn't fully seem like that much time could have possibly passed.  Between a much needed vacation and coming down with a wicked case of tonsillitis upon returning home, I've been trying to do as much as I can even though I'm still incredibly run down. I had to put writing on hold because I simply didn't have the energy once I was done with my work duties and was home for the day. So, while I'm feeling a lot better, I'm still not 100%. I'm mending though and here are my simple pleasures. 

Pink Medicine

I haven't taken liquid amoxicillin in ages. I literally cannot remember the last time I tasted it, but I'm guessing it's sometime before the age of 13. When I was a kid, I loved it so much, my parents actually had to keep it away from me. I know, I'm weird. Anyway, when I finally broke down and went to see the doctor this week, he prescribed it to me. I thought I was getting pills, but when I found out I was getting the liquid version, I was actually a little excited. I've been enjoying taking my twice daily dose and I'm definitely going to ask for the liquid stuff again if I ever need it. It's so much more fun than popping a couple of pills. 

A Craft

When I got back from vacation and the two days I had to take off from being sick, I was met with this. I won't turn down the opportunity to put something together, so I immediately began punching out the flattened giraffe along the perforated edges. Within minutes, I had folded and tucked and had a perfect little paper giraffe. It's sitting on the top counter above my desk and my boss seems to be getting a kick out of it since I most recently found it hanging from the vase that sits next to it...apparently Mr. Giraffe was thirsty.

It's been a while since I've heard The Voodoo Fix live and since they're up in San Francisco playing at the Boom Boom Room this weekend, it'd be really nice to go see them. Unfortunately it's one of those things I'm going to have to play by ear since I am still recovering. Also, BART is on strike again and that makes getting there a little more difficult. I'll do my best, but unless I'm feeling better than I am today, I may have to catch them another time.
