It has truly been a couple of rough weeks here health wise and after last Monday's set back I thought this nuisance would be with me indefinitely; I'm happy to say that isn't the case by Wednesday evening I started feeling better and today I feel my body is getting stronger.
I don't know exactly what happened Monday but an hour after I swallowed my weekly 50,000 iu of Vitamin D3 my body just hurt everywhere, not a severe pain just enough to be very uncomfortable, and the deep nasty cough was back. I was so tired I slept on and off all day sadly not by choice.
I'm not sure if it was the weekly dose of Vitamin D3 along with the daily 10,000 iu but I stopped taking the daily until I'm though with the weekly dose of 50,000 iu. I dread taking this Mondays dose, if it happens again I'll have my answer. For 3 days I stopped the second dose of my atenolol because my blood pressure was quite low and I was so tired. By Wednesday evening the horrible cough was gone, the pain was just an annoying ache and I woke up Thursday morning feeling quite good!
I'm taking things slow right now to ease back into my normal everyday life I haven't needed a nap in two days which is good, I haven't done much exercise except a short circuit around my back yard each day and a few errands which does leave me breathless.
With the decreased energy I have been reading quite a bit my recent trip to the library had me checking out a variety of books to keep my brain stimulated not to mention will count toward my reading challenge numbers.

Then there is the hand stitching which I am making progress on whether slowly stitching on Sunday's and linking up over at Kathy's Quilts http://www.kathysquilts.blogspot.ca/2016/04/slow-sunday-stitching_17.html
or daily stitching when its all I have energy for.
The hand embroidery on Yoga Tree Pose is done unless I do french knots instead of beads on those dots over the arms. This is a work in progress I may add more yoga poses to this piece or a few Om symbols at the corners or may be I will just trim off the excess fabric.
Block six for Hocuspocusville is coming along rather swiftly I was surprised by how much progress I made since last Sunday I stopped mid stitch to snap this photo.
I did forget to mention last week on one of my good days I stopped at a local nursery I have a few new herb plants for my garden and hope I feel up to transplanting them into larger pots this week. I haven't had the time to snap a photo yet, if I keep going forward on this road to recovering I should have a picture later this week.
