Gloomy to some, beautiful to me

Tuesday, October 20, 2020


The wet foggy days of fall have settled in and I love it. I love the way the fog sits on the water, sitting and watching the rain fall and the smell in the air. What I don't love is the cold I seem to have caught. A few sleepless nights, horrible eating habits, no exercise and my body seems to think it needs to protest. Stress is not our friend!

Yesterday I popped a cold tablet and headed out to the lake. Now that the gates are closed to traffic I once again have the trails almost completely to myself and I love it. It has rained so hard that part of the trails are flooded making it a bit challenging.



As much as I would have loved to run this my head wasn't in the game, a little fuzzy from the tablet and still focused on our newest grand baby. She was still on full oxygen as of yesterday afternoon.

This morning I stepped on the scale my drastic lifestyle change has had a very quick negative impact, I was up four pounds. OUCH! As much as that was not a happy moment I'm also glad that it happened. I don't want a few days of stress to evolve into a long run of back sliding because the scale didn't really move. This afternoon I have a 5K hike with my husband, tomorrow I have an 12K hike planned with myself. I need a nature bath to recenter myself.

Today also brought some wonderful news.



She's off of oxygen and the tube is coming out! Really need this cold to go NOW, I want to be able to get some baby snuggles next week.

    I don't mind the foggy weather unless it's also chilly enough to make the damp go right through me.

    "A nature bath." I love that idea. Hopefully, your cold will resolve so you can fully enjoy it and hold that beautiful new baby. Are the twins super excited?
