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...................

Cough, cough.

Cough. Cough-cough. Hack. Cough. Hack. Cough, cough.

Yep, that would be me.

I had a really bad bout of bronchitis many years ago, and when I get a cold, it tends to settle in the lungs, irritating those old scars. And I cough. And cough. That's where I am now. I'm not really feeling bad today. I have a little bit of a runny nose, but nothing to be concerned about. I'm just coughing. If I say more than a few words, I start coughing worse. Sooooo. I'm not talking much.

I've had a lazy day so far. I've just watched TV, read and listened to music most of the day. I'm using the cold and cough as an excuse to not do much work, too. If I do anything that brings exertion, I cough, so HEY! I can't work, right?

The dogs have been alerting me to the deer on the property all day long. I don't know what it is, but there have been several singles and groups wandering around, probably totaling around 20 through the day. I haven't taken pictures, because they've been away from the house. I'm wondering why they are so active. Is it hunting season? I suspect it is. Perhaps they are here to hide away and be safe. Suits me. I'm not really opposed to hunting if people actually use it for food, but I also don't like to think about my beautiful neighbors being someone's dinner. And I especially don't like hunting as a sport.

OK, that's all I got. Isn't that pathetic? Me, the marathon blogger! Yeah, you're right. I'm not well, not at all.

Cough cough, hack.


  1. Even the most professional blogger like yourself deserves a day or two off from blogging....we will all survive and wait patiently for your return!! Get better soon..ok?

  2. Thank you, Ruth. I just worry about not doing my "job." ;D

    I'll be so glad to be well again. Whenever that is!

  3. Lynilu---don't read my post from today. I promise you we eat the deer. That's our main food source.

  4. Lynilu,

    Take care and don't apologize. My library assistant (BR(etirement)) had the same situation. She just couldn't seem to shake the cough once it started.

    Stay warm and baby yourself a little.

    ~hippo hugs~

  5. MJ, it's when it is just for sport that I object.

    Hippo Chick, I'm taking it all as easy as I can. I've been on the couch all day long! Thanks!

  6. Even when you're sick you're so much more prolific as a blogger than I am! It's SO cool that you have deer wandering around on your property.


  7. Betty, I think there might be something wrong with me!! I talk that much when I'm with the right people, too. I'm a mess!!


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
