These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Better, much better

Today is a far better day than yesterday!! Sheesh, what a day yesterday was.

I was so tired from not sleeping well the previous few nights that I could hardly put one foot in front of the other. I had decided I was taking something in order to sleep last night. I hadn't decided what, but figured that a muscle relaxer and a Tylenol PM would probably do the trick. Of course, I would have been "druggy" until noon, but I really didn't care!

Then I talked to Jim in the evening, and he mentioned that Nyquil knocks him out, and .... SNAP! .... of course! It would take care of the "gettin' a cold" symptoms as well as the sleeping problem. So last night, I went to bed earlier than usual, took a dose of Nyquil, and slept deep and long.

When I woke this morning, I felt great! I was really refreshed, wasn't stuffed up, and was ready to whup the world once again! I think I'm back to normal again, at least for a few days.

I got a new, sassy haircut this morning. On the way in to town, I picked up my neighbor who couldn't get out of her driveway yet, as she needed a cut, also. After that we did a couple errands in Capitan. Then we stopped at the leather works place and picked up my moccasins which were being resoled. My friend had not been there before, and was totally fascinated with all the things there, and I had a good visit with Jake, the owner, while Joyce browsed. We went next door to the art gallery, just to say hello, and again it was a new place for my neighbor, so she enjoyed looking around while I visited with Annmarie. Next we stopped at the studio to see Linda, and ended up going to lunch. I had a fabulous brisket sandwich with green chili, cheese, and avocado mayo. I also had a cup of red chili & pork soup which was fantastic! It was a very good trip with lots of good friend-visiting all around.

All that to say I'm feeling better. Can you believe it? Yup, that's me! Yak, yak, yak.
