Last week I relaxed. Sort of. That is, I relaxed when I wasn’t lying on the floor of my bathroom with stomach trouble. I had a couple recipe related posts planned, but for almost 5 days food looked, smelled and sounded awful. On the bright side, I’ll be able to fit comfortably in the vintage dress I’m planning to wear to my nephew’s wedding this week! Always find the bright side if you can. You may have to look under rocks for it, but it’s got to be there somewhere, right?
Anyway, because of the stomach thing, I didn’t feel like doing much. Except for cleaning the germs out of the house! I had trouble reading, watching TV, writing, surfing the internet, even sleeping. It was kind a bust of a week, but every once in a while, I think God allows me to get sick just so I am FORCED to relax. I’m just a high energy, naturally-wired person; sitting and doing nothing doesn’t come easily to me.
Still, here are a few of the things I did see when my brain wasn’t too fuzzy and weak:

Coffee is usually just a treat for me; I don’t need it the way others seem to (maybe because I’m naturally-wired?). Science proves it makes introverts less efficient.
