Roger had a cold or flu for the whole week before he left on Sunday past and when I got up that Sunday morning my throat was very sore and I felt as if I was coming down with something dreadful. Monday throat was worse, whole body worse. Then it hit me with a vengeance. Head and nose stuffed up, couldn't breathe through my nose in fact, still can't taste or smell anything, even my gums were aching. I slept and rested just about all week being too sick and weak to do anything else. Woke up this morning and realized that I was breathing through my nose and felt better than I had all week. Phoned my parents to tell them that I was on the mend and felt pretty darn good as they were phoning every day and my father was losing sleep worrying about me. I did some household chores that I hadn't been able to get at since Sunday and I'm feeling better and better as the day goes on.
I had run out of cat food this morning and the cats were going to their bowls, then looking up at me as if to say "What's going on here, NO FOOD!" lol. They can sure give you a case of the guilts. So, I phoned the corner store and they delivered cat food and a few other things I needed. Filled the cat dishes and all heads were down in the bowls and bums up.
We had some wet snow a couple of days ago, at least I think it was a couple of days ago but it didn't stay on the ground. Today it's cold and crisp with a milky sky so after having a bit of a read and a nap after lunch I thought I'd go outside for a walk around. I hadn't been getting much fresh air all week and it was pure joy to suck the beautiful clean air into my lungs. Not a sign of any insects, guess I've seen the last of them for this year. I took some pictures of the colours around me. Nothing spectacular but pretty none the less.
One of the paths we've made and the woods man over by the stream looks like they need re-doing. Something that will have to wait until spring.
