Midweek: positive is not good, but some small finishes

 Both of us were sneezy on Sunday.  My husband suffers from allergies year-round (dust and mold as well as pollen) but I only react in late spring when pollen is very heavy.  We took quick Covid tests and both read positive.   I don't have a fever, just sneezes and sniffles and a few aches.  He, meanwhile, is grumbling because we got our second booster shots last week so we should be immune, right? Umm, no.  I've pointed out that sniffles are a lot better than being hospitalized.    CDC guidelines say to self-quarantine for five days (=through Friday). I had to bail on two luncheons that's I'd really looked forward to. (Fortunately the reservation for one of them will be transferred to next month.)   I gave a heads-up to people I'd seen over the weekend.   I rearranged several other activities.    

The bright side:   I can get this over with before next week which is crazy-busy.


I made seven more daisy-print mug rugs for an ongoing P.E.O. project.  My chapter's long-time fundraiser is selling yearbook covers. They are quarter-page-sized ring binders.  We work with another chapter (they do the finances, we do the order fulfillment) and each chapter nets between $3000 and $5000 per year to benefit P.E.O. projects (listed here) to educate women. 

A coupon for a mug rug is put inside each shipment of yearbook covers.  I started doing this last fall and more than 20 coupons have been redeemed so far.

  1. Oh Nann, I am sorry. It is a true testament to the vaccine for sure. My husband had it two weeks ago. I never did get it but he really wasn't sick just a bit under the weather. Hope sniffles is all you get and that this will mean more time to sew for the next 5 days!

  2. Your coupon offer is such a neat idea! At least the vaccines reduce the risk. Our 13-M-O great granddaughter tested positive but only had an overnight fever. Apparently she picked it up from a grandmother on the other side.

  3. Lovely mug rugs! I hope you get more responses to your coupon because they are a great idea! Sorry you caught COVID but thank goodness it's just sniffles! Thanks for sharing your work on Wednesday Wait Loss. Made me curious...what does P.E.O. stand for? Sounds like a great organization.

  6. After all this time, it is surprising to get the virus. Glad your case is mild. Hope you and your hubby recover quickly. Enjoy the time to stay at home and sew or read.

  7. Sorry you got COVID. Even with precautions and vaccines, it's still possible to get it. Glad you symptoms are not severe
