what was the highlight of your day?

I had such a good peaceful time reading to my littlest - a book that flows like poetry… called Home Of The Brave- about a boy traveling from his home in Africa to a new home with his Aunt and Uncle in US.

The sun came out finally and the dog and I are sitting outside and enjoying it.

I can’t even get myself to go outside today. Agoraphobia…

I have days like that. I look out the window and force myself to go out on the deck with the dog. There's no houses behind me so I feel safer.

Though the day isn't done, the highlight so far has been getting the second dose of coronavirus vaccine (of course, it'll take a couple of weeks to be fully effective).

I'm getting my second booster on Friday along with my flu shot. Scheduled it that way because I don't have any plans this weekend. My husband is working. Haven't had any problems with the vaccines before but it will be nice to rest if I need it.

I am up to date on all of my vaccinations and boosters, yet the BA-5 variant just laughed and made itself at home, regardless.

Looking through old photos to post . Good memories and some bittersweet. I wish I’d had the energy to look through all of them. Something hit me like a Mack truck yesterday. Took one covid test then and it was negative. Today I’ll take another one and my day will totally be made if it is negative, too. If it is positive, my day will still be good because I had the latest booster shot 3 weeks ago and I’m grateful for that. My stomach is still gurgling…no big deal. I’m fatigued…..no big deal. If I really crave ice cream, I can still force myself to go get it. I’ll wear a mask.

I have the BA-5 variant, this is the fourteenth day and I am still coughing, relentlessly, throughout the night. It started with a very bad sore throat, then congestion, chest pains, body aches and the cough. Not fun at all. I sincerely hope, with all my heart❤️ that you do not come down with this, Isinatra. The fatigue is overwhelming, also.

oh! I just saw your reply ignore my whaaaat 👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻. I caught it at the very beginning of the pandemic when there was no treatment at all. I know 🔮you’ll get better. Steroids helped a lot, but I could only take them for three days. They made me feel manic. And I know what you’re going through…..

Thanks for your encouragement, I appreciate it. I had Omicron last Christmas, but this is a whole new level of Covid.

Got it over the 4th of July. The fatigue lasted a long time and still lingers. I need to get the 3rd shot. Enjoy the sleep pamper yourself, herbal tea, cozy clothes and comforters...

So sorry that you had to go through it as well, Raggedy-Ann. I shall pamper myself, thank you so much.

Today it was sunny and warm, a beautiful Autumn day. I sat outside and soaked up the sun, while sipping my apple spiced tea and eating tangerines. 🍁

Well, its workout day, so probably that. Been under a lot of stress lately and this time of year gets to me pretty bad. A hard workout and that endorphin rush usually pushes the gloom away for a bit.

I am glad that you experienced a little less gloom, RupertBrown. Exercise is key, at least it is for me. 🙂

I am "terrified" Northern Ireland seems to be falling like a pack of cards, a woman who is surviving on just over £5000 a year, half a tin of soup a day, going to Tescos, not to buy anything, just because it's warmer there! Two neighbours checking, thought they could smell oil, it's because the bin strike😲 which have been going on for six weeks, the bins are a LITTLE smelly🤧🥴 Ambulances are now taking DAYS for patients to be diagnosed in A&E😵🙄🤕😷🤯 NOT a very good day!

I’m so sorry to hear that 😣 it makes me think my situation is a good one when earlier today I thought differently.

You gave me a perspective that made me immediately being thankful for everything I have in my life. Hopefully better days are ahead.

Sounds like a good book you are reading. The highlight of my day is that I got my hair cut and styled today. But I need to watch my spending. My money seems to be going like water lately. It’s too easy to overspend with a bank debit card.

I am working on stopping my shopping habit. I only have one cc but I don't know how I will ever pay it off.

I've not painted the kitchen since I bought my house 7 years ago. Today I finally picked a color, Aqua! Right now it is a dirty white. I have a nice refrigerator but it is badly dented. My brother suggested a refrigerator wrap and it all came together. I started cleaning out my kitchen, tossing out old silk plants from the 1980's...

I cooked dinner, a ham, mashed potatoes and corn with spice cake for desert to have with my son. I love to cook. It relaxes me and gets me in a good head space !!🍽️ ❤️
