Being sick is no fun

There has been a crazy ugly upper respiratory infection something or other going around our area. My daughter first got a nasty head cold and sniffled for several days. And then I got it! Mine was quite different! Lots of coughing, and copious amounts of phlegm and mucus that I was practically choking on! Some days the coughing was so bad, and so continuous I was exhausted and couldn’t catch my breath!

This began on January the 10th. I am just now, February 7th, getting back to normal! The worst and most scary was the physical weakness. I already have mobility issues so this added to my daily trepidation! Lots of prayers, a couple of visits from the home health care nurse and doctor and I am recovering! I really discovered I love chicken noodle soup, scrambled eggs, saltine crackers and diet 7 up!

Another drawback to sickness, is I could not crochet. I just did not feel well with so much energy expended on breathing and coughing.

I am finally crocheting again! I have really missed it! I decided to start small, so I have made four different granny squares that I am having tested by another crocheter right now. Once ready, I will publish them.

Great thing about granny squares is they are so versatile! You can whip stitch or crochet eight or nine together to make a scarf. You can make a vest or a sweater. You can make a baby blanket, or a wheelchair blanket! If you are extra inclined, you can make as many as you want and make a throw for your couch or a blanket for your bed! How fun is that!

If you are curious, you can find my patterns in my Etsy store and in my ravelry store.

Be watching for these new squares! I’m eager to see how many different types of projects I could make using granny squares!

Stay well stay safe! See you around!
