08:48 pm: Hangtag!
The mailguy was several stops ahead of ours when I went out, so I checked back before I went to the DMV and there it was! I got money for the week, took Red Dwarf (review after bookgroup; mini-review: smeg) back to the library, dropped a DVD off at the drive-by box in the post office parking lot (almost got hit head-on by a taxi coming into the parking lot from the exit at high speed), checked by the mail and then got groceries. I parked next to one of my neighbors and when I was resting at the pharmacy, I saw her go by and called her over and we talked a bit.

Giant had boneless chicken breasts for $1.69 if you bought more than three pounds, so I did that instead of buying a whole chicken and got just 3.19 pounds. I like dark meat better, but this will actually go farther and is less trouble. I got broccoli and green beans to be cooked this week, I hope, plus some farfalle and rotini, none of which have been on my normal grocery list.

I hurt a lot today and had to get out of the shower at one point because I hurt enough I was nauseated. I rested on the bed and then went back in. A while after I got home, I was so hot that I took my temp and it's 100.2F so I suppose I may have something more than a dry cough.

Oh, and I finally took pictures of the paua shell Soon and Fern sent! I'm a lousy photographer, but here's the front and the back. Or maybe inside and outside. Isn't it beauteous?

Uh-oh. I hope you haven't caught the flu, but if you have, just take it easy. Chicken soup time!

I'm one of those crazy survivalists; I have at least two dozen cans of chicken soup at any time. And then there's delivery. I do hope it's just a mild case of something that isn't flu, though.

We got it from Akaroa Blue Pearls while on holiday. They sell jewellery made from pearls from paua or New Zealand abalone. The pearls themselves are quite beautiful but are stupidly expensive.

Happily the shop also had some paua shells for sale (for much more sensible prices). The colours ranging mainly from green to blue, depends on the paua's diet. I prefer the iridescence & colours of the shell more than those of the pearl.

I hope you throw off that fever without it developing into 'flu.

The shell is beautiful!

Take care of that fever. Is a paua a kind of abalone?

I'm so glad both your meds and the hang tag finally came. Now take good care of yourself and get over whatever is causing that fever!
