This week felt more like a month than a simple 7 days. And, it did not go anywhere near as planned including yesterday.
Yesterday, I planned to work a half-day, come home and join Five On Friday. That did not happen. Instead, I came home and took a two-hour nap, waking only to go pick up my son from school.
Let’s just get to the random five for the past week:
ONE: Sometimes Sickness Still Arrives
Did you hear the large audible sigh as I typed that heading? Sometimes, you can take the vitamins, drink the green tea, wash your hands until they turn red, use every other trick, and still end up with a nasty cold. I felt it coming on Thursday afternoon and drank an Emergen-C, a cup of green tea, and downed a Ziacam packet within moments of one another (not advised, bad tummy ache!).
As J put it, “It doesn’t work like that” Still had to try. I felt horrid yesterday but do feel better today so maybe it worked a bit. And even though I’m sick with this head cold, I’m so very thankful to not have the flu which is making rounds about our town.
TWO: Fresh Flowers To Brighten The Day
I didn’t want to end January without getting a start on one of my 18 things for 2018 list so I picked up some fresh flowers while I was grocery shopping.
THREE: Winter Weather Means Sunshine, 65 Degrees, and Windy?
After starting out chilly, by Thursday our weather turned spring-like. I went to a nature center and took a walk. It required a bit of bravery: Thankfully, I didn’t see anything like him. Just a menacing stick once: The rest of the walk included more peaceful views:
FOUR: Most of my week was spent working…
On Sunday, I agreed to work on Monday leaving the rest of my week open. Somehow, I ended up working every day except for Thursday.
As I already mentioned, I took a two-hour nap yesterday. I also went to bed at 7:30p.m. and slept until this morning. Sometimes sleep is the best cure. I feel much better this morning.
Hoping this weekend finds you happy and healthy! Don’t forget to pop over to our host, The F.A.S.T. blog and see what others shared for their five on Friday.
