Still under the weather
Apparently this virus that has been going around is reacting about the same in everyone. I had one day of being really sick and since then there have been days of feeling slightly queasy and too fatigued to do just about anything. Not terrible but neither do I feel well enough to do anything requiring more energy than stirring a pot or washing dishes.
I blame the roller coaster weather and the time spent in the reception area of the doctor's office when I was there for my three month A1C checkup. Speaking of which, they can now get a three month reading with a simple blood draw about the same size as when one checks their blood sugar at home! Until recently, I would have to wait three months to know the readings.
We are in the deep freeze side of roller coaster weather today. There was a layer of ice under the snow when I walked out to get our newspaper. But with the drop in temps came a beautiful snowfall. I couldn't help help looking out the window during the snowfall yesterday and this morning while the snow clung to the trees.
I find snowfall to be beautiful when there is no need to drive the slick roads. We have had rain since Christmas and very few snowflakes. Which is also why people are sick. Yesterday's snow was a delight. Yes, I had to take a photo of my neighbor's barn this morning. What a blessing to have it be what I see from my front porch, although this photo was taken from the road while I also kept an eye on the pickup truck in the distance.
I'm hoping to be here on Saturday so I'm off to brew a small teapot full of herbal tea to stay hydrated.
