It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Have I got a Headache !

And a sore throat and my ribs hurt from coughing but other than that, I feel fine.
I was able to get up and face a painter today ... please God, do something about this ! and my sweet husband has taken care of Everything. Pup is well walked and finds that it is a good thing to hang out with me, Naps are encouraged.
I had all sorts of thoughts of going out and walking in some fresh warm air, for maybe 4 minutes.
So here I am, about to go take more drugs ( they are never strong enough, ever notice that?) and lie down on the sofa where I will moan quietly and lift a weak arm now and then and let it drop, pointing to the glass I cannot possibly pick up by myself !
Pup will be on the floor, by the sofa, snoring away.. just happy we are all together. As am I.


  1. ANy better yet? Tell Nurse Tate more pills, more snuggling and soon some wine............

  2. Blech. I'm hoping as you read this, you're feeling much better, Candice! As soon as you're a little less achy, please have an almond croissant for me! xo

  3. I am one of those people prone to headaches, migraine and colds. Usually, my first recourse is White Flower Embrocation (, also called White Flower Oil.

  4. Thank you Jane .. I have to see if they sell White Flower Oil here.
