Sickness and Sleep....

I had been feeling a cold coming on for three days, but it hit me hard on Friday....coughing, sneezing, fatigue, sinus headache, miserable!  I left work an hour early and was in bed by 4:45 pm - I got up twice for medicine, a few texts, and a bathroom break, but slept right through until 10:00 am on Saturday (17 hours) - I would have slept later, but I had to go to work!

After over two hours of working with numbers, my eyes were tired but I felt like I get a second wind!  Dayquil, Echinacea with goldenseal and Zinc.....Medicine of the Gods!!

So, I tackled the leaves in the back yard and the chicken coop and oh, were there LEAVES!   Four tarp loads - I have no idea what that equals, but I count leaves by tarp loads!  I always have!  The back yard is now done and tomorrow (God willing), I will tackle the leaves in the side yard and driveway!

I will make chicken and rice soup with a salad for dinner....light yet filling.  I can't taste anything anyway!!  

I'll probably be in bed by 7:00!  And I get that precious extra hour of sleep tonight too!  God is good!

Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well, but also glad that you were able to get some much-needed rest. Homemade chicken soup is an excellent choice.....but all those leaves! They'd be waiting for you tomorrow ;)

I didn't feel like doing our leaves this weekend and now you just made me feel guilty! I hope you do feel better.
