Nice Sunday.


Sunday, May 05, 2013

Well, I didn't get done half of what I NEEDED to today but I'll live. Hey, I did do two loads of laundry so I won't be naked!

I did get a good 4.5 miles in with the girls today. That was what I really wanted to do today and I made it, slower than I planned but we did it. It was a beautiful walk by the marsh. Everything is in bloom and greening up nicely. The water level is back up to normal so I'm happy to see that. There are baby swans, two of them. And the dragonflies are back, so spring is really here.

The girls were really good and seemed to be just as excited as I was to see all the plants back and blooming. They needed to sniff every flower, stick there head in every plant. Gypsy has developed a "toad fetish". She's just enthralled with them, just standing there staring at them. Tazzy is just too interested in everything to be enthralled by anything.

However, I am paying for running yesterday with cold/allergies. I cannot stop coughing today and I think my nose is doing a 4 min mile! I cannot breathe. I feel weak and tired with a horrible headache but I think it is just lack of oxygen. I'd like to go to bed early but I know sleep is going to be a fickle brat tonight. I don't sleep well when I can't breathe. Add this cough and I'm afraid it is going to be a LONG night!

Oh well, hopefully I'll feel better in the morning. And if not, I'll do the same thing I did today. Cough my head off, sneeze through a box of tissue, and get crap done. A virus and some pollen are NOT going to beat me. I'm tougher than those things. Or at least I'm bigger!

    lol Pollywog had a toad or frog fetish too until she licked / kissed a metallic looking one and got sick; she never did it again! emoticon Hope you are feeling better and slept well last night. emoticon

    Sounds like a wonderful day....well, sort of. The run was great but the allergies not so great. I take an OTC allergy drug every day. It's the only thing that helps me hang in there this time of year! emoticon

    Hi sweetie! Glad the girls are up and running with you again! so funny - my Missy had the same fascination with toads up until a couple years ago. However, she still LOVES cows. Can't get enough of them when we're driving by. emoticon

    Cute background :-) :-) I understand how you feel..I have been stuffy for a few weeks.. It's getting old. At least the pollen count here has just peaked and will be going down.

Sounds like a nice walk with the doggies! emoticon

    I had to do laundry yesterday too so I wouldn't have to go to work naked today. I hope you managed to get some sleep despite your nose. That's the part I hate most about colds/allergies - when you need sleep most to heal, you don't get it because you can't breather. Boo!

    Aw, Kitty, I'm sorry you're allergies are still crazy. Do you take a daily med?

I'm cautiously optimistic that spring is here too. My daffodils are in full bloom, and the leaves are just about ready to pop. Of course, all of that is what makes me sneeze, cough, and sputter. I haven't seen the dragonflies yet, but knowing they're out by you, I should see them soon.

I'm glad you had a nice walk with the girls. I've been finding I really enjoy what I call the "sniffing" walks with Jasper. It's not about the speed, it's about enjoying the view. And knowing how much he enjoys the opportunity to look around, makes it so much more fun for me. And Jasper shared Gypsy's "toad fetish." I just never let him get close because we have many types that are toxic to dogs. Last year we had one toad that was the size of a large fist, I kid you not!

    Great work on the fitness.

Admit it:

The reason you're lagging on the laundry is you can show off your bod, sans clothes!

    Double dose Benedryl, or whatever decongestant works for you, at nighttime. You need to breathe if you're going to sleep. And if you don't sleep, you can't get well (if what you have is more than just allergies). Hope you feel better in the morning! emoticon

    I hope you feel better soon! I got a laugh out of imagining Gypsy, staring at toads. Dogs are so funny sometimes!

    Blah! Do hope whatever that is clears up for you and you feel more clear headed tomorrow! Glad you and the girls had a nice nature walk! It has been so cool here and raining. But, at least the rain is keeping the pollen down! See? I can still find a bright side! Feel better!

    Sounds like you had a good weekend despite the allergies and sickness, which is good! The weather was gorgeous here and Peanut and I got in lots of good activities and walks - which always trumps getting what you "need" to get done LOL.

Feel better soon!
