Last night we went on the full moon hike. It wasn’t as cold as we expected it to be so we ended up having to remove layers. I guess that’s better than being cold and not having enough layers.
It was a good hike. Lots of hills, but the terrain was one of the easier walks since it was dark. There was still quite a bit of snow on the trails and there were some very slippery spots. When we got towards the end there were two choices. You could go on a 20 min easy walk or a 40 min tougher walk with another hill. The boys and Richard decided to go on the tougher hike and I picked the easy one.
There was on flaw in the hike… we never saw the moon. There was way too much cloud cover to see the full moon. Oh well. We will probably try that hike again in the warmer weather.
So the last few days I’ve been fighting a head cold. It has run the gamut of being just a runny nose, to head congestion and blowing my nose continuously. Anyone else ever wonder how all that snot fits inside your head? (Ok sorry if that was TMI, but I’m just tired of blowing my nose all day long)
Last night I could feel the cold moving. It was getting harder to breathe and that was part of the reason I went on the shorter hike. I thought maybe it was the whole I can’t breathe through my nose, but this morning confirmed that isn’t the case. I now have a post nasal drip combined with a hacking cough. Oh joy!
Needless to say today I did NOTHING! I spent the day on the couch watching Food Network. I have dinner in the crock pot. I should go outside and bring in the trash barrels. I should go out back and fill the empty bird feeders. I should fold the laundry that is waiting in the dryer. I should do many things, but nope today I’m voting for nothing.
Some days are like that! Some days you have to admit defeat. You have to say… enough. I need to stop. I need to rest. I can’t do it all, so I’m going to do nothing… and today was that day.
Tomorrow, we shall see
