I decided to pay a visit to a doctor today and ask about my health. I haven't been absolutely well for the last three months or so, no major illnesses like heavy flu, but numerous infections that kept coming back, feeling well in the morning, feeling terrible in the evening. And you know how it is - you cannot concetrate on your work, but you also have no strength and will to practice your crafts!... Blah!...

The doctor turned out to be a very nice old lady (with the Atlantis ring on her finger, if it matters ^^), who examined me and said that my immunity system was in pieces and we were going to start the recovery treatment. She at the start said that she's going to approach my case a bit differently (than the traditional doctors, I presume ^^) and gave me some homeopatic medicine, and told me to come back next week for a check up. For the first time in my life I felt that the doctor really wanted to help me, and not only prescribe me the regular antibiotic-aspirin-vitamin C-cough syrup combination and put down 'check' next to my name on the list.

So, I bought the pills she gave me and took the first dose, and I'll be waiting for the results (which may come not so fast, I am aware of that, because I have to rebuild my immunity system and it's not something you can do in the blink of an eye.) But at least I made the first step! ^^

In addition I bought some food to keep my fit and healthy.
Let's look inside my fridge: these are the joghurts enriched with special bacterias to strengthen body's ability to fight illnesses (natural flavour and the orange ones, although they are not too tasty...).

Here are some fresh salads: mixed beetroot salad, red and white cabbage salad and plain beetroot salad, next to earlier inhabitant of my fridge - horseradish to put on the meat sandwiches (yummy! ^^) and cranberries for the roasted chicken.

And of course some alive fruit and veg: tomatoes, oranges, apples (I haven't eaten them in a while, I don't know why?...), an eggplant for musaka and a kohlrabi (I love this vegetable! I usually slice it and put some salt on it, very tasty and crunchy! ^^)

Last night I knitted one wristwarmer of Fetching from and... I didn't like it at all! It was the right size, cables twisted properly, but it didn't have that vibe. Maybe it was the yarn - I used Wendy's Merino Double Knit, 100% wool in white, maybe if I used some blend with microfibre or cashmere as recommended in the pattern (or cotton, because there is no way I could buy cashmere or silk yarn in Poland...), it would look and feel differently. Anyway, it's frogged now and I'm back to knitting Emelia and Candle Flame shawl.
