Where September was the month of my ankle injury, October was the month of lung trouble.
By the time my ankle was as good as healed, I got sick. This wasn’t so strange. The weather was changing and having asthma means that you’ll be sick for a few days.
After a few days I did get better, but my lung capacity was still very poor, which also makes me more tired. I still had to skip classes to make it through the day.
So I went to see a doctor and got a antibiotics for three days. This did help, but still the lungs were going up and down… Another visit to the doctor and then my blood was checked and a X-ray was made. Luckily nothing bad was found, but the lungs are still trouble, even after 5 weeks now.
But enough complaining, because October also had happy moments. There was a lot of crocheting, exams that I passed, my dad’s birthday and I really enjoyed my ferret Mexy. Check out the pictures & all below.
Hi there! What are you doing? I was asleep…
Such a cute look on her face, it always makes me melt.
Especially this month when I didn’t feel so well.
Making the pumpkin risotto. It took some effort (read: a full workout) to chop it into pieces. But with pumpkin it’s always worth it, delicious as always.
After my week of exams I was free for one week. So I finally started a project I had on my mind for months. It involved cutting a lot, a lot, a lot of hexagons. It takes some time, but with some music or a tv show to watch it’s quite relaxing.
Also in that week I went to Bagels & Beans for lunch with a friend. There I had a delicious bagel with creamcheese, avocado & tomatoes. It was yumyumyum, so yum that I made my own in the weekend. A little downsized, but very delicious.
And I’ve played my mellophone (a kind of horn) again since, ahum, more than 10 months. But it was lovely. The horn still worked and I still knew how to work it. I should take it out of it’s bag more often.
And at the end of the month it was my dad’s 57th birthday! For the occasion I made an applepie with cocos and chocolate chip cookies. An interesting combination, but definitely worth repeating!
Crafts: crochet lace wrapscarf (one you can wear with a gown), it’s a big project but it’s almost finished now!
Books: Blue Monday and Tuesday’s Gone, both from Nicci French.
Movies/series: Flikken Maastricht, Expedition Robinson, Bones
Favorite moment: Coming home to Mexy when I had a tough day.
Suckiest moment: when my lungs keep me from doing what I want to.
