Nothing...

...is what I have to report tonight. The day began with a mild disappointment and suddenly it's 8:58 p.m. and that's all I can really say about it.

The weather has changed. It's chilly and windy here. The predicted rain is moving by some miles to the north; the skies are generally clear.

Thus the disappointment: I shortened my morning walk because I don't enjoy walking into that cutting wind off the ocean. There were a couple of added disappointments, but they have become almost routine. When checks are so long overdue, why waste energy getting upset when they don't arrive yet again?

Worst of all, I have a mild cold. Nothing to do with the recent unpleasantness, but the same dumb damn cold I get whenever there is a radical change in temperature: stuffed sinuses and weepy eyes, and a loss of energy.

I'm hoping it will be warmer tomorrow. The only thing I know to do against feeling lethargic is to go out and push things a bit. Walking five miles would do it, but I'll be happy with three. I get angry with myself when I give in and sit around idle, as I did today. I don't need to be mad at me; I'll leave that to others.

Fortunately, I noticed a good book on the shelf this afternoon that I haven't read in years. Time to give it another go.

And that's the way it is.

hmmm...... with the horses dose of IV antibiotics you received, I am shocked to read that you could be coming down with something.

Take your vitamins, eat your spinach, lots of hot tea, hot baths, sleep, and no sniveling. Your walking pal will be back in no time flat.
