This was one of those not so good days and I’m trying to find the good so I’ll go through the exercise with you.
Hot and muggy doesn’t make a good beginning for me. I have asthma and just going out the door today was a trial. I did manage to get out a couple of times though and got one errand done that needed doing.
It was cool enough in the house to do yoga this morning so I forced myself to get to it. I’m always pleased when I can get it in to my day.
I also managed to get some housework done that has been waiting for doing for a long time. The downstairs floors are washed and I no longer have to live in fear that someone will run their finger across the top of the furniture down there. One good thing about having the air on and the windows closed is the dust may not be quite so thick next time I get to it.
My friend sent me a text asking for prayer early in the day. I’m so glad I could at least do that today. You can pray too if you like. Her 17 year old granddaughter has CF and had to be taken to hospital with a serious lung infection yesterday. That is not a good thing for a child with CF. It’s downright frightening. Her brother in law was also taken to hospital. We have no word on that yet but considering his overall health it may not be good news.
Depression is nasty stuff and I wish I could wish it away but I can’t. Guess I just have to roll with it and be glad I’m in a situation where I can do that for a little while.
One of the great joys of our home is the little pond by the back door. The school of about 40 gold fish we have now had for three years were quite fun to watch as was the little leopard frog who had taken up residence recently and was quite happy to sit by our feet. Today we discovered that a Belted Kingfisher has been raiding the pond and we cannot find one single fish or the frog. They will be missed. Not sure what the good side of that one is except it caused a little fun on the Ontario Birds Facebook page for a while. One guy offered to restock our pond so he could come and take pictures of the bird and drink beer on the deck. That was worth a giggle at least.
The sun is going down and the air is supposed to be clearer tomorrow so breathing won’t be quite the task it was today.
Here’s hoping for a good day. Wishing you the same.
