Our normal Saturday and Sunday classes have been moved to Monday and Tuesday this week because of something or other to do with the public school schedule. This gives me a MUCH needed respite for two days. This afternoon I decided to go ahead and try to get at least one lesson prepared, so that I won't have so many to do tomorrow. Well, I got two lessons prepared, go me!
As for the health, the cough is still a problem, still taking antibiotics, it may come to a hospital visit with a mystery IV yet. Not happy about this at all, but I am trying to rest as much as I can for these two days. I feel a bit better today, but that may be because I'm staying quiet.
This morning I decided to go to the supermarket since it was still cool outside, I knew once it got hot I wouldn't feel up to it. I thought that 9:00am would be a pretty quiet time there - WRONG! The whole upper floor was a madhouse. People were shouting on loudspeakers in the produce section, advertising heaven knows what. There were a lot more things laid out in the produce section and the fish section than I usually see, which makes me wonder if it's like this every morning; maybe I'm just getting the day's dregs when I shop in the afternoon. Along both sides of the floor were lines that stretched from one end to the other; I have no idea what the people were waiting for, but it must have been something worth waiting for, as the lines didn't appear to be moving at all.
I bought some Asian pears, because two Chinese colleagues have recommended cooked pears as a food to help a cough. I peeled them and boiled them with a little honey, and they were so delicious that even if it doesn't help the cough it was worth the trouble. Next time I will use less honey, because the liquid, which I figured I had better drink to get all of the pear-y goodness, was much too sweet.
I read for a long time today, which is soooooooooo nice, since I haven't had much time for it lately. Now it's almost 7:00pm; I think I'll read just a little more and when it gets too dark to read by natural light, I'll sleep.
