Do you know what’s worse than Monday morning blues? It’s a Wednesday, which feels like a Monday.
Having been struck by a bout of flu and a horrible allergic cough, I spent the weekend and all of yesterday eating, taking medicines and sleeping. On Monday I worked from home thinking it would do the cough some good, if I don’t go out in the dust. But instead of resting, all my day and more was spent in trying to resolve a bug (A programming one, not the flu one. :P)! Nothing that I did fixed it and I was out of my wits trying to think of a solution.
I think the system was pretty bored too, because the first thing today morning, it struck me what the issue was and I resolved it! Well that was something good that happened on this pretty bluish Wednesday. 🙂
Another thing that’s making me sad is that my plants are not growing. L I put in so much efforts after the workshop I attended, following the steps they told me to. Surprisingly the brinjal plant that I planted at the workshop is growing well, but I ones I planted at home aren’t growing at all. I am now so sure that the compost I used, is to be blamed. This said compost was given at my husband’s company. His company generated compost from all the food waste that’s generated every day and gave every employee 5 kgs of it each. Initially I was delighted at the prospect of having so much compost at hand for my gardening. When I saw it though, I was a little skeptical as it had a very strong pungent odour. So I had kept it aside.
After attending the workshop and redoing my terrace garden, I decided to use it and used it in all the pots (What was I thinking??!!). Now my plants aren’t growing at all and I feel so sad every time I look at them. 😦
The flu and the cough has left me feeling low and annoyed about so many things. For instance I find it annoying that the people in crafts group of WhatsApp are knitting and crocheting so many things, while I have almost given up making stuff since a long time. It just keeps reminding me of the enormous amount and variety of yarn I have hoarded and all the babies who’ve grown up (for whom I planned to knit even before they were born).
I hope this flu wears off soon and I get back to planning and procrastinating things. 😛 How’s this weather treating you?
