I could tell when the cough syrup wore off, last night, because I woke up coughing and couldn't fall back into a deep sleep after that. I should have just taken another dose, but, I didn't want to. Instead, I tossed and turned for the most part and then, got up at 7:00 a.m. and had my morning tea. Later, however, around noon, I took another dose of cough syrup and spent most of the afternoon sleeping!
Friend M stopped by in the evening to spray the peach tree (and to check on me). I don't usually spray the fruit trees, but, he found signs of some sort of borer beetles and we'd like to save the tree if possible.
I took it easy, today, too. I'm starting to feel a little impatient with myself - after all, it is only a cold and cough, not the flu! But, it seems to have knocked me down, more than it should have! In between naps (and feeling a bit light-headed because I was probably dehydrated), I watched some TV, knitted, and cleaned Dancer's litter box. Cousin P and friend R called to check on me and, of course, I video chatted with my daughter.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The morning mists cleared and we had sunshine in the afternoon
- Cough syrup!
- Afternoon naps
- Friends and family checking on me
- A restful day
I am hoping I am over the worst of this cold. I feel like I lost the better part of this week, being sick!
How was your Saturday? What are your plans for tomorrow?
