Thank you for all the sweet comments and e-mails after my last post. So many kind words and wishes! I'm truly overwhelmed.
My leg is healing, and I'm already able to get around better, but the drugs are wiping me out. I mostly just sleep. I don't have much of an appetite (which is so not me). I can't believe I've already been home from the hospital a week. I still haven't seen many of the animals, and I have no idea what's happening in the kitchen garden. I don't really have any urge to go outside. All this should feel very strange but doesn't—so you know I'm on some heavy duty medication. I'm sure the 106° heat index has something to do with it, too. Damn, it's hot. I'm still missing Robin terribly of course.
Next month was supposed to mark some pretty big changes around here; exciting things that would hopefully allow me to devote more time to blogging and writing. Maybe even be able to stop turning down book deals and finally start working on one. (Thanks to all of you who have told me that you'd love for me to write a book!) This whole snakebite thing has thrown a wrench into those plans, but hopefully I'll be settling into a new groove here soon—probably when I run out of drugs.
2010 was to be the year I got caught up with everything both on and offline, stopped overextending myself, and organized my insanely cluttered life (oh, and lost 15 pounds), but just the opposite has been happening, starting with that stupid flu I had from December to April. But I've come to realize there's no sense in getting worked up about it all (not that I still don't once in a while), just like there's no sense fighting the urge to sleep 19 hours a day. This is simply how things are right now.
Fortunately I have a huge backlog of photos and recipes to share, a stack of new recipes I want to try, and obviously a bunch of wonderful readers to share them with. I'm really looking forward to getting back to work—as soon as I wake up from my next nap.
Meanwhile, want to get to know our Tough Tortie Topaz better?
