I awoke extremely early this morning, well, earlier than usual. As I lay there, in the very early morning hours, a sense of well-being came over me. I felt so much better.
I sat up in bed and my head no longer felt like it was wobbling around on a stick...it felt like...well,.....like my old head again.
As I got out of bed, I heard a familiar sound in the street. "Gone clear!!" The garbage guys were already up and about. I had managed to put the garbage out last night, so it was all good...."Gone clear!!"
Opening up the patio door in the darkness, Brownie was already up as well. After his morning tummy rub, he was off to peruse the property for any "intruders" that may have taken up residence during the night.
As I stood at the door awaiting his return, my nose was accosted by the smell of the wet dew.....WHAT!!!! I could smell the wet dew on the grass again. My nose was working again.
Then a wave of hunger hit me, and I was craving fried plantain....that would have been great if I had any plantain in the house.
Note to self: After the flu, have plantains in the house that can be fried.
Brownie came bounding back down the side path, and immediately threw himself against my legs for the proverbial body snuggle. He was happy I was up and about. Don't know how he knew I was feeling better enough for a body snuggle, which consist of lying across my feet, whereby I am unable to move, just waiting to be petted all over.
Maybe it was my scent, maybe I had a "better" scent....sounds corny but I know you catch my drift.
I'm not a breakfast person, but I needed to eat something now that the fried plantain had enveloped me. Almond milk and cereal would have to do.
Today, I won't overdo...but there's definitely some laundry and cleaning and some gardening on the agenda.
Since dear daughter is traveling today, I may even have an airport run that I know nothing about as yet.
So I'm off to get my life back in order....back to life......back to reality......back to the here and now.
Thanks to everyone who stuck with me through my illness...I really appreciate all your kind words for my speedy recovery.
