I was sick most of the last week: double ear infection, sinus infection and bronchitis. Because I take immune suppressant drugs to keep my Crohn’s disease under control, when I get sick I go all out.
In short, it wasn’t a very productive week.
My symptoms have mostly subsided, thanks to a round of prednisone, and next week looks a lot more productive.
Tomorrow is the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. After this the days will get longer, which is nice because right now it gets dark at 4:30 and that’s just a bunch of bullshit.
Every year on the winter solstice I plant garlic bulbs. Nothing fancy, just ones I bought at the grocery store that happened to start sprouting before I got around to using them for cooking. Most years I forget where I planted them and never actually harvest, but this year I’m going to remember to mark where I planted them. Probably.
