One day later…

These beautiful blossoms have a sent similar to lilacs. Unfortunately that’s where their beauty stops. I woke up at about 12:30 this morning feeling feverish and unable to breathe. After applying some essential oils over my sinuses and taking a combination of Benadryl and Tylenol I was finally able to go back to sleep around 4 AM. I’m feeling slightly better this afternoon but night time tends to be harder for me. I really dislike that not sleeping well at night creates a cycle of drinking too much caffeine during the day. Which makes it harder to fall a sleep at night. Did I mention that I’m also trying to to give up my beloved Coca Cola.

I’m experimenting with my sock knitting. The pair on the left is being knit from the cuff down with a K6xP2 rib. The pair on the right is being knit from the toes up with the same K6xP2 rib. I’m curious to see which pair fits me better. However, I’ve already decided that knitting heel flaps and turns on cuff down socks two at a time is not worth the hassle.

  1. Sorry to hear about disturbed sleep. Quite a long time ago I had a bit of an issue with drinking caffeinated coffee to keep me going during the day, plus the odd coca cola, which made me restless when it was time to go to bed and unable to drop off for hours.. I switched to decaff coffee and try to find caffeine free diet coca cola when in need and have less trouble. I occasionally sneak in caffeine and definitely notice the difference – it gives me the jitters and makes me talk a lot!

  2. Sorry for your sleepless night. It does make the day more difficult. That’s when I want to snack all day. I’m already a Pepsi addict! When I have trouble breathing at night I often go to my recliner. It helps to be elevated. Hope this siege is a short one! ๐Ÿ’•

  3. Oh no, so sorry to hear that. I was hoping it would stay off a little while. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Just take it easy when you can and rest during the day if possible.
    Love the socks. Both are stunning. I must admit I knit toe up, two at a time, it just seems to work for me. And I get to finish both at the same time. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Take good care of yourself, have a good weekend and happy knitting.
