Getting Up to Speed

I was not exaggerating when I said several days ago that I’ve been sick. I had the flu (twice) and then it turned into some walking pneumonia. I had that once when I was a junior in college. I was stupid enough not to learn from that incident, and so I got it again. Maybe after all of this, I’ve finally learned to pace myself. Probably not fully, but it’s nice to ponder.

Enough about that. What I really want to talk about is Richard Armitage, because I’m finally well enough to descend into this insanity again whereas before I didn’t give a rat’s ass about anything but sleeping. I should mention that this will be a hit and run since I’m busily trying to get caught up with my projects. I have completed two and working on another three of which one is for a fellow fan. No, I haven’t forgotten you fellow fan, and I thank you so much for all of your prayers and encouragement. I’ll be back in the groove shortly. Just give me a couple of days.

Okay, so back to Richard. On second thought I’m going to put all my waxing on about him in the next post. That way this particular post can get lost.

Me on about Richard coming up very shortly. And no, I haven’t forgotten about the other subject I want to discuss — The Hobbit audio book. Nor have I forgotten several other loose ends around this place. I promise before I call it a day here, I will tie them up. :D

Onto the next post.


  1. Welcome back! Glad you’re feeling better. :)

  2. Thank you! And I’m feeling well enough that when SO gets back from the grocery store I’m going to cook one of my favorite meals. No, actually SO and our 13 year old are going to cook while I stand by with directions. :D And the meal? Nothing most reading would like, but I adore: purple hull peas with fatback, friend okra, fried potatoes (not be confused with french fries) with onions in them, and some buttermilk cornbread (no sugar in it; that’s a sacrilege!) made in my iron skillet that’s especially reserved for cornbread (read that: I will do damage if someone in the household uses it for something else). Yeah, all of this is decidedly not healthy eating, but I am due a splurge. And since I’m not a sweets fan, this is it. Heaven.

  3. I’ve heard about walking pneumonia. Take care – your system’ll be very rundown!

  4. Okra! Peas! Fried Taters and onions!!! Argggh. How fast can I get there before you snarf it all down????!!!! BTW, where the heck did you find okra this time of year? Oh…CORNBREAD!!! Shoot me now.

    And you might think about extra Vit. C? Now…eat, rest and write woman!!! :)

  5. In the frozen food section, and I forgot to mention vine ripe tomatoes sliced.

    Taking EmergenC

  6. Thanks, Prue. I am trying to pace myself realistically.

  7. LOL, of course…and of course you’d rub in the maters. But then they are loaded w/C,D, etc….

  8. I could have made a meal on the tomatoes alone! :D

  9. so sorry you’ve been sick! :( That’s really lousy. Take care of yourself. That’s the most important thing. Hugs!

  10. Oooh, fried taters and onions. Yum. One of my all-time favorite foods. Feel better soon, Frenz.

  11. Skip the crazy foods and get yourself some antibiotics. Drugs, baby, drugs. Avail yourself of our biggest benefit over living in the Middle Ages. Leave the anti-corporation railing to others. There’s nothing like big pharma when you need them.

  12. What armitagebesotted said. Be gentle with yourself.
