Yesterday was so nice I got my suit on and hit the pool. I read that sunshine can help a summer cold. I don't think it could hurt anyway. I only did about half my exercise though, I was wiped out after that. I read a magazine for a bit and came up, showered, and got my pj's on. At 2:30. In the afternoon. Buggers, what a life. Hey it could be worse! I could have a j-o-b!
I don't think I am contagious any longer, it's been a week and I have no fever. I am ready to venture out now but not too far yet. This has really knocked me for a loop. I am out of orange juice and craving it like mad. I don't usually drink it but really want it now. I guess my innards are wanting vitamin c or something. Do you think that really happens? I do. I think the body knows what it needs.
If you've been pregnant you probably know about cravings. I sure had them. I wanted olives. Green ones. Big spanish green ones with pimento. Oh man, I can still taste them, so delicious. I usually just buy the little ones because they are so much cheaper but once in a while spring for those big beautiful ones!
I remember visiting olive groves in Italy with Sarge, they pressed the oil and also had the olives for sale, we had dinner at one also. A big long table with lots of people and many courses. A lovely memory.
Shoot it's like the old fish oil is kicking in again. It's been a while hasn't it? Anyway that dinner had a soup with spelt. I had never heard of it. I think it was a grain, anyway the soup was good. And of course there was olive oil to dip the bread, it was so green and delicious. They have excellent balsamic vinegar also. I brought some home and still have a bit left. It keeps for a very long time.
The oil I brought home is long gone though. It does not keep for a long time. I was able to bring all sorts of things like that home with me because we came home on a cruise ship. Ahhh what a trip that was. It was a Costa ship. The Mediterranea. The food was so good. Very Italian and not American at all. And the seas were like a calm lake all the way home.
I must be hungry, I keep thinking about food I ate! Ha! I still have some roasted chicken and vegetables from the other day so I'm all set for food. Good thing! I have tried to stay on very healthy eating since being sick but it's hard when you aren't hungry and nothing sounds good. I am now at my lowest weight in years. And years.
Keep plugging. An old friend called me yesterday and I actually said the words "my life is not bad, I'm not unhappy". It surprised me that it came out of my mouth. Sort of jarred me into realizing it's true. I mean I know I have everything I need and then some (except Sarge) but happy? I guess I am. Lonely at times but still. I'll get through this, I know I will. My kids have been such a blessing to me I can never tell them enough. Always there and always supportive.
Have I rambled on long enough to bore you to tears? Sorry. You know when it get's kicked in I can't do much about it. My fingers just fly on the keyboard trying to keep up with my brain jumping from one thing to the next.
Have a lovely Sunday. Me too...
