On Tuesday, Jan. 2nd it was another slow awakening, especially on my part. I had no excuse other than the dregs of this cold, since I had gone to bed last night at 10 or was it sooner? Anyway, truly feeling the effects, I didn’t get up until 8:30 and then opened the blinds and went straight to the couch and laid down again. Bill wasn’t too far behind me, we were both still dragging. I was awake a lot through the night coughing and now my upper rib cage is sore. I forgot to rub my feet with Vicks but tonight for sure!!

He made our morning drinks and I sat in the recliner with my laptop to read yesterday’s posts and comments. No walks today, I didn’t have it in me. I won’t bore you with all the details but I can tell you that even our pooch was feeling bad. He and I sat outside for about an hour this morning but I didn’t read too much because of my headache. His tummy was doing a lot of gurgling too.
I’m kind of following Bill’s footsteps with this cold since he is a couple days ahead of me. What he is feeling now, I believe I’ll feel on Thursday. I know 2 days ago, he had a rough day and that is what I’m experiencing today. My feet are on the right side of the sand though so that is a good thing.

I had hopes to dust the Suite today, (which I didn’t) Bill was going to vacuum (which he did) and we both wanted to get our sheets and the small amount of dirty clothes washed. (which we did). However, it wasn’t until 2:15 that I was ready to go up with Bill to start it. It gave me an opportunity to work on the jigsaw puzzle, which won’t be finished before I leave now. Darn! I’ve tried so hard!

With the clothes put away and the bed remade, Bill lit the barbecue. We were hungry early but still not up to a large meal. Maybe eating it we could have managed but preparing and cooking it, not so much. So, hot dogs it is. The all-beef wieners looked good and tasted quite yummy! We didn’t have hot dog buns, so split them and cut them in half. I guess we’ll call them burger dogs.

Soon after cleaning up dishes, I got the push on to finish my post. The back of my neck was throbbing. I just wanted to lay back down on the couch, the way I started out this day. For information sake, this has been a fabulous day out there. It got to 80F with a slight breeze and full sun. I really wish I had felt like a final swim in the pool and hot tub. Oh well, it wasn’t in the cards for me today.
I hope you have enjoyed your day. I think we are on the mend here in the Richards’ household and I thank you for all of your previous wishes to get better. It is just a cold.
Thank you for stopping in. If you wish to leave a comment, I’d love to read it.
