My last post was written during a sickleave from work. Since then, Norway’s Constitution Day (May 17) has come and gone, without me participating in any way this year, and I had one day at work, a quiet day, since many co-workers had taken the day off to extend their weekend.
Today I braved the cold wind and enjoyed a cruise with Bergen’s pride, the barque “Statsraad Lehmkuhl”, chartered by my trade union. It was an enjoyable 5 hours in the middle of a Saturday, in spite of rain and strong wind. The ship itself glided smoothly through the choppy waters, and below deck, we stayed warm and entertained since there was wine and beer and a jazz band.
My brain is actually preoccupied with my health and an odd word usage of late: Sadly. I find things make me sad. I’m not sure why, but the word “sadly” pops up easily in my speaking and writing. Could be a phase. Or it could be something else. I’m not in the habit of getting sick barely a half year after the last time I had a similar illness so something’s up, and since my mom has hypothyroidism, which affects the immune defense system, I’m definitely thinking something may be happening with me, too. So I’ve spent a lot of time surfing the ‘net looking for information, which is why I’m now eating coconut oil. At some point, I’ll make a doctor’s appointment, too.
