Happy and Grateful – Day 117

We have reached the month of April and I am still on course to post daily with my happiness and gratitude I have found.  Please join in if you feel like doing this too by sharing in the comments or on your own blog.  There is so much to be happy and grateful for.

Well the forecast for today kind of fell apart… well it was too little sun, too late.  When I was out and hoping to hit the park it was still grey and gloomy and barely 40°F.  So I didn’t get my trip to the park but by about 5 pm the sun started to shine and it did warm up a little bit, but not much.

My sinuses were a little more bothersome today, but with allergy season upon us I fight that right along with the cold.  I heard back from one of my friends I emailed and got a short text from a friend.  Sometimes it is just nice to know there are others out there that might be thinking of you… or maybe that is just me.

So today was another pretty calm day.  I did however fix a problem on my Dad’s computer so that is taken care of.  I am happy I got that done.  I am grateful for the friends who “talked” to me today in text and email.  Helps to not feel quite so alone during the day.  Now it is time for a glass of orange juice and some sleep.  Good night all!

Good news it that I am getting better… bad news is I am losing my voice now.  It is a pretty common occurrence for me when I have a cold for the cold to leave and try to take my voice with it.  My daughter constantly makes fun of me for it.  With any luck I will only be squeaky for a couple of days.

It was another day of recovery.  I did a little light cleaning in the kitchen and that was it for the day.  I did run over to my Dad’s to get him dinner and had a nice time visiting with him.  We shared some Turtle pie for dessert – yummy!  And I guess I did some more cleaning out of my inbox.  Most of it was sale ads I don’t have the money for.  I am still hoping to hear back from a couple of friends I emailed, but nothing so far.

Well to get to the point of my babbling fingertips tonight… I am happy I was able to be a little more productive today.  I am grateful for the pretty descent day out (temps are going to fall tonight into the 30’s) so I was able to still have the windows open for a while today and hear the birds sing.  Tomorrow might require a sweatshirt, but I HOPE to carve out a small chunk of the day to head to the park.

My medicine and numerous typos (I hope I caught them all) are telling me it is time for sleep.  I hope you all felt happy and grateful for something today!

Growing Together

I want to grow roots here

ones that mingle and mix

with the ones you already planted

I want this to be home

like nowhere else has ever been

but your roots are too strong

they are forcing mine out

they refuse to grow together

suffocating my new growth

will I ever find the land

that is fit to set roots into

ones that will grow with another

to create the shade of love

Well it was a little better today, not as many sneezes but the cough is getting deeper.  I slept really pretty well last night for a change and I know that is bound to help.  I hate being sick!

Aside from being sick… I did have to take my Dad to the clinic for a blood draw.  He was feeling a bit under the weather too still.  So we were quite the pair today.  Luckily it was just the blood work and then I picked up some prescriptions and went home.

I did take a little time to look through a touch of my mounting email I have neglected while I’ve been sick, so I did accomplish something today.  I am happy I can breathe a little easier today.  I am grateful I got a little bit done to match my energy level.  Now if I can get more good sleep tonight maybe I can have an even better day tomorrow.

*And a quick note… as I have been sick (and I just plain forgot yesterday) I will be skipping my Monochrome Monday post this week.  Sorry!

I am still enduring my cold…. I do think it is better tonight than last night though.  I have napped off and on today.  And feel my posts are sub par so please bear with me while I get through this cold.

I am going for the basics tonight.  I am happy I had nothing to do today.  I am grateful I like the things that help get me better – vitamin C and my echinacea tea.  Time for sleep now… zzz zz zzzzz zzzzzzzzzzz
