I live in a part of the world that is very fickle when it comes to winter. It can sometimes have a bit of an undecided temperament. One day you can be wearing shorts and feeling great and then suddenly overnight will bring freezing weather the next day. All of this going back and forth seems to bring on the cold and flu season but also plays havoc with my allergies!
As I sit here typing, my nose is slowly draining a pond in my head and although I’m alone, I’m truly tempted to put a tissue in there and leave it. I haven’t done that so here goes the timer for how long it takes my sniffling to wake the house up.
The sun is teasing me through the window and I’m not sure if it’s going to be a good day or a rainy one. Please don’t get me started on my allergies when the rain comes in! Sometimes it’s good and clears it up but then sometimes I sneeze just because it’s raining….really?
Hopefully, the sun will be warm today and help my bones to stop aching as it does in the cold. Even though it’s a work day, the birds outside my window don’t know that, nor do the squirrels. Watching them play and feed seems to take some of the agonies of allergies away. I’m hoping that the next couple of days stay warm as I have them off from work. We’re planning on going to a hotel so that we can actually be outside and not have to worry too much, a lot less than where we live.
It’s going to be a lot of walking but that will make up for the time I work and sit. Visiting with one of my sisters and her husband will also be nice as we’ve gotten closer over the last few years. It will be a lot physically but I still think relaxing. She’s been through a lot also so I think that’s why we’ve bonded more than some of my other siblings. I still love everyone but we just seem to understand each other a little more. She’s helped me through some rough emotional times and I hope that I’ve been there for her too.
So, I raise my coffee cup in a toast of hope to good sunshine, great conversation, family and comfy walking shoes!
