For me, covid is now mostly history. I got it. It proved to be a very mild case as compared to many, but I slept through most of September, stayed away from everyone and now I’m fine.
But now it’s over. I like the thought that I’m now doubly protected from getting it again thanks to having been vaccinated earlier this year and now, having just had the bug, my immune system mostly knows about it and will most likely defeat any future exposure, at least for a few months. And yes, I know I may still get a variant that both the vaccine and my previous exposure did not prepare me for, but I also know that the odds of my getting reinfected are very low.
But I’m back to work now and life is returning to normal. I’ve developed an whole new appreciation for mid-day naps. Since I’m still trying to regain my lost stamina and sometimes press a bit harder than my body wants, it rewards me by calling me to bed for a few hours mid-day. If this is the worse thing I have left over from covid, I’m okay with it.
This was a busy week and I’ve been trying to get my longer story done, but it has proved frustrating. I’m at the stage where I’ve printed off a manuscript and done a paper-edit. Now, I’m entering those edits and my method always leads me to further changes as I go so this step is never fast.
I’m pretty happy with most of what I have so far and completion is again in-sight after hiding from me while I slept though September.
This week, I wanted to produce something new and one morning I was reminded of a short comment conversation between myself and one of our peers from this coffee share. She inspired a thought and I turned that thought into a 3-minute story.
Because I want to do some more editing of my larger story, can I leave you with the invitation to check it out? I call it;
Also, my earlier fictional story about a young girl dealing with her slow recovery from covid has been well-received but in case you missed it, here’s the link for it.
That’s it for me this week. I’ll be out of town tomorrow so may be delayed in visiting your venue but with any luck, I’ll have a slow work day and be able to get to a few. Then I’ll do my best to catch up on Sunday and Monday.
