Laying Low

i very rarely spend the day in bed.  seriously, i think i could count the times on the fingers of one hand.  although i tried to ignore it, i could tell on saturday that my body was trying to tell me something.  i mean we have pretty much been going nonstop with getting this house back in order.  and maybe it was my body’s way of saying enough already.  stop.  chill.  kick back.  and spend some time enjoying that brand new bed.

so that’s where sunday found me.  for most of the day i felt like there was nowhere else that i wanted to be.  i had absolutely no interest in doing anything at all.  i don’t have a tv in my bedroom (i know, weird!) but even if i did, i had no interest.  no ipod, no laptop, no food.  i wasn’t sneezing, coughing, sniffling or throwing up.  just kind of achy and zero energy.  talk about “justbe-ing” – that’s pretty much where i was at.  zombieland.

i still don’t have my full energy back.  i envision little soldiers inside my body fighting off the alien invaders with swords and shields.  i have to let them do their job and wouldn’t want to infringe on their ability to fight!  but i hope to be out of zombieland very soon.

i knew things were starting to turn around a bit yesterday when i got up for some juice and ended up grabbing my camera and doing a little photo-shoot from my bed.  you just never know!

another gorgeous sunset to top off the day!!


  1. What a gorgeous sunset... glad you're feeling a little bit better. Wishing you continued health...


  2. Wise decision, Patty. You have been through so much and listening to your body is a great thing to do. The beauty around your bed is wonderful .. the sunset -- why would you been anywhere else when you are not your usual 10. Take care my friend.
