I need a distraction. I had my second COVID shot yesterday, and I am racked with chills, a headache and a tight feeling across my chest. I have no appetite, much less a desire to write a blog post right now. Also, it has been a tough week for other reasons that I am not prepared to write about at this moment. But maybe focusing on something other than my symptoms would be beneficial. This might be a short post, or maybe I will get a second wind.
Don't get me wrong - I am glad that I got the shots; Spousal Unit and I have already invited a group of vaccinated friends over for a dinner party in May, just a couple days after the two-week mark. Life might just be getting closer to normal.
Not only can we resume social activities, but we can also return to church. While I have enjoyed the flexibility of "attending" Mass at several different churches for the last year, it is not the same as being present with the faith community and receiving Communion. During April, I helped with decorating the church for Easter. I love these arrangements.It's a rare post of mine that doesn't have food photos, and I think Debbie only reads my posts for the food! Head Chef frequently makes stir fry, and he is always trying it new ways, such as this recipe with the fried egg rolled and sliced on top. So good!!!
In an effort to give Head Chef a break from the kitchen, I have been cooking once a week. In the throes of the preparation, I don't always remember to take pictures!
My older brother also celebrated a birthday this month, and I sent him this hand-made card. The hot air balloon theme reflects his love for all forms of flying (refer to this post for more info.)
