cloudy skies

I had such big plans for the weekend! Saturday was supposed to be sunny(ish) and warm, and I was going to talk a nice long walk with my girls and Stuart. Movie night with friends that evening rounded out my plans for a lovely weekend. In actuality, I spent the whole weekend in bed, coughing until I retched. I coughed all night as well, so got no sleep. Too sick to knit, talk, cook, or enjoy leisurely walks. I wish I could say that I read good books, prayed for hours, or at least tried to make the most of my down time. I didn't. I just lay in bed and felt sorry for myself, thinking of all the things I wanted/needed to do. I am just now feeling semi-normal, and not going out much yet because I am still prone to those coughing fits which leave me retching and gagging-not pleasant to have in Target! It turns out that I didn't miss out on nice spring weather, as it was cold, windy, and at least semi-cloudy all weekend. One consolation!


  1. Oh, do take care of yourself. Have a cup of hot tea with honey and lemon, go to bed and just rest. Everything you listed can be done another time, right? Get well soon.

  2. thank you, Tracey! I have been drinking a lot of hot water with honey and lemon, that has helped more than any thing else.
