Well, apparently the stomach bug was one of those times when God brings something good out of something bad: I've had a lot of rest and I'm starting to feel more like myself. Still going to have to ask the doc for more pain meds and a daily muscle relaxer to help with sleep, but at least I don't want to take a 3 hour nap every day.
To celebrate, tomorrow I'm borrowing a kayak from one church member and going kayaking with another.
I'm getting pretty excited about this. And the one who's lending me the kayak will let me keep it a few days, so I'm planning to find someone to go out with on Saturday as well. If I can manage to find time to go once a week between now and when the local outfit sells their rentals off at the end of the season, I think I'm going to buy one. Yay me!
To be honest, apart from walking, this is the only real physical exercise I enjoy. I will do a little gentle free-weight work and ride the exercise bike occasionally because it's the right thing to do, but I don't really enjoy it. I used to love to canoe, though, and this is even better than that.
I also have a new craft to try out tomorrow, if I get a chance. If I have as much energy tomorrow as today, I want to get the office/craft room straight. If not, I'll be making beaded bookmarks for the church bazaar, and maybe trying a couple more bookbinding techniques. I really want to learn how to do coptic binding. I'll post photos if I come up with anything at all attractive.
