Yesterday was low key. I wrote, coordinated with my graduate advisor, had a session with my therapist, drank tea, chatted with Aunt Lucy, read, and ate a lot of kolacky. I’ve decided that fig, surprisingly, was my favorite. It was the Dark Horse of flavors and I was certain I would choose cherry or apricot. Anyway, I needed some space and time, no intense workouts or long hikes – so I took a step back, retreated into myself. I’m a combination of contemplative, sad, annoyed, on edge with my EBV and very disappointed. It’s quite a lot, really. But such is life.
Reading outside was lovely, the late afternoon sun and all, and I laughed when neighbor Breege came over to water the flowers. Buttered pasta for dinner, and I laid out an extra pair of pjs, should I sweat through the ones I went to bed with. Thankfully it wasn’t necessary.
My body is – my body is just doing it’s thing. No major changes, so that’s good. I’ve got a bit of a stuffy nose, sore throat and my skin feels tight – applying moisturizer after my rosacea lotion really helps. I’m feeling tired and all the things I listed above; that emotional health is so important. My self care today involves more tea, time on a trail and time out of the house.
That’s all she wrote! Have a great Thursday or day wherever you are.
