Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!
I do not have a lot of business typing today as I am pretty out of it.
I will say that I am glad for a Willow Manor blend of herbs and spices that included chocolate peppermint grown on site.
I am seriously considered growing a larger variety of herbs this year for tea preparation. You need a lot of dried leaves to have a good cup.
I have made a habit of getting up in the morning and preparing for the day in responsible fashion to keep my mind off of being sick.
It is good to shower, shave, comb your hair and get fully dressed to have a better outlook on the day.
Today I retired these relics.
They have over two hundred uses between the two of them. Rinsing them thoroughly and letting them air dry has prolonged their use. They are not close shaves, but money has been saved in 2020 with them that has been allocated for other uses.
I am now using this stocking stuffer from Christmas. Perhaps a subtle statement was made by my Beloved.
As we cannot go anywhere, the day was relatively mundane. I watered and fed the ducks in preparation of precipitation.
Bubbles loves the snow and spent most of the day outside. She’s that kind of girl.
With little energy, I played Minecraft with my children. It does not help that stubbornness prevents deviation from my diet which is under 2000 calories. This puts the hurt on.
On the subject of food, something we tried for the first time was ordering groceries online. We thoroughly disinfected the trunk of the car and popped the trunk on arrival.
The store employees loaded it up and sent us on our way.
My Beloved purchased a Monster drink to make things feel a little normal. I was plussed!
Unfortunately, and to my surprise, I could hardly taste it. This is a Covid side effect that I had not encountered.
Out of curiosity, I tested a few things and can only taste extremes of salty and sour. I tried brushing my teeth and could only get a tinge of minty freshness.
Dinner was a curry flavored quinoa with lentils. I could taste none of it. Everyone else enjoyed, so that is good.
My beloved checked my carbs on the lose it app and made me a bowl of chicken flavored ramen noodles. They helped me feel better but still… Tasteless.
Have any of you had this symptom? Did your taste come back? I spoke with someone who had Covid months ago and they still cannot taste much.
