Fun in the sun

Yesterday we spent the afternoon at Krause Springs, about 30 miles out of Austin. Lindsay and Chad went for a swim with Shara’s child-sized floaties…they’re too cute! It was a beautiful day, full of almost-rain and cool water and butterflies and hummingbirds, and was only marred slightly by my sore throat and headache. I’m glad I had some outdoor fun yesterday, because today my cold/flu/whatever hit me really hard. I actually came home from work early because I felt so bad, and now, at 7:00 p.m., this is my first foray out of bed. Why is it that when you’re sick, even your skin seems to hurt? Ah, well, Justin was kind enough to bring me soup and hot chocolate and a book of crossword puzzles, and my boss was kind enough to call and say I didn’t need to go in to work tomorrow. Hopefully this thing only lasts a couple of days.

So until better days, internets, it’s back to bed for me. Hope your holiday (for those of you who are from the U.S.) is lots of fun!
