I woke up with a fever this morning, which means that my plans of baking something for the Festival of Hearts (which is today) has gone right out the window. I was already dealing with low spoons, getting sick took those spoons into the negative numbers. I did make some hot chocolate to share with Jake and Trev, but my plans of visiting my sisters Over There is something that’s not happening today.
I did approach the shrine this morning, since my morning prayer routine takes just a few minutes. When I picked up the lantern, I was promptly Told to put the lantern down, turn off the candle, and go eat breakfast. I learned that I’m Not Allowed to do anything with my shrine (or any spiritual stuff at all) when I’m sick–which makes perfect sense, I’m just grumpy that I had to get sick on a major holiday.
