I managed to get out a couple of times with Abby today to capture some of the fall colours.
But I have to say – I still feel like absolute crap. And it has been almost a week. On the rare occasions when I do get a cold, it just never hangs on this long. I’m doing my best to be kind and gentle with myself, rather than impatient and exasperated. Surprisingly, I’m doing pretty good so far. I’ve been sleeping a lot. My afternoon naps are an hour or more and I’m sleeping 9 or 10 hours a night. Whew!
I trust my body to know what it needs.
So – I have to pack and get all my and Abby’s gear ready for Vancouver tomorrow and then a road trip to Oregon. And I want to get that done early enough so that I can relax the rest of the evening.
I do need rest but I also notice that as soon as I am outside, my body feels better. Inside, I am sniffling and sneezing and coughing non-stop. Outside, it all clears up. So – dividing my time between the two and trusting I am well on the mend.
