Aches and pains
Here are some random and not so random thoughts on this Monday:
My head is beating like a drum today from a sinus headache. I'm home and going to take some of the over the counter sinus medication to try to get over it. My neck also aches and my rotator cuff strain is acting up. I'm going to check blogs between naps.
I had a good weekend--cozy and relaxing. The moon was awesome. But I get bad dreams whenever there is a full moon, which convinces me of it's pull on the tide within us.
I've enjoyed the relatively warm weather but a deep freeze is coming by the end of the week. Just in time for my real birthday on Jan. 17. Supposedly it was a warm day when I was born.
I would like to be well enough to make a meeting tonight. I'll have to make that decision later. There's a meeting close by that might be easier to reach tonight than the longer drive to my home group.
No one is home right now so I get some time to listen to the house "talk" around me. I can hear the squirrels running across the roof. And the ticking of the big old clock in the gathering room sounds like a metronome.
There are clean flannel sheets on the bed that I'm going to burrow in for a few hours. There is something about soft sheets in winter and the expensive high thread count ones in summer that make sleep peaceful.
See you tomorrow.
