Yesterday was a stay-at-home day as I awoke with Turkish tummy. Ugghh. Three hours later I was weak and dehydrated but the worst was over. The rest of the day was spent on the couch, mostly sleeping as I didn’t have the energy to hold and read a book. What a wasted day. A kindly neighbor bought bananas and rice for me (moms out there – remember the BRAT diet for children with similar health problems?) and I began my transit back from the realm of the unwell.
Despite a restless night, I now am feeling much better. Not going out for a three-mile walk today but at least I’m in an upright position. And to start the day off right, a wonderful surprise greeted me when I opened the curtains.
This friendly cat had climbed up a tree to my second-story balcony and found my little doormat a good resting place. The loud purrs started as soon as I drew the curtains and kept going through the petting session. This encounter made my day.
