I am not happy.
Last evening I thought I was getting better, and figured I would even be able to get out of the house today. But then I woke up this morning with a new symptom. I was not pleased. (For anyone who's curious, I woke up in a cold sweat.) I didn't feel too bad, other than the darned sore throat, but I figured that getting new symptoms isn't a good sign. So this is one more day stuck in the house.
Maybe I'm being over cautious, but I really would rather not push myself too far and get even sicker (is that a word?) or give my germs to anyone else.
Oh, and since I can't get out today, I've missed 1) a mandatory meeting for new music students at Marylhurst, and 2) the annual music department picnic. As I said, I am not happy. And I will be even more unhappy if I still can't get out of the house on Thursday, which is the first day of fall term.
But anyways...on to a happier topic!
Today is Mabon, technically the first day of fall. In truth, though, I think the season turned about a week ago here in Portland.
I'm not sure what my family will do. We'll see. Maybe something tasty made from stuff in our veggie garden. Maybe a nice chocolate cake for desert. :)
I haven't actually talked to my family really about what we'll do, but I know mom had already given it at least a little thought, so who knows -- she might already have plans for dinner.
So, what do my Pagan followers have planned for this wonderful day? I guess this question could go for non-Pagan followers also, if you observe the changing of the seasons like we do. :D
