Much to be grateful for:

     I took a look through my journals, and the last time I had a Joe-blo ordinary cold was in April of 2006. Two-and-a-half years-isn't bad at all--certainly no grounds for complaint.

     I'm also grateful for better-than-expected sleep, since the worst part of colds for me is the feeling-like-I-can't-breathe messing the nights up. But my nights haven't been bad at all, thankfully.

     A fantastic rainbow Tuesday night at sunset. It wasn't tremendously bright, but it was huge, so high in the sky with the sun so low and perfect from one end to the other. What a treasure!

     My triumph despite my cold in writing in and finishing chapter 27 between Monday and Tuesday evening. Lying down for a while after dinner each night and reading/resting helped me muster up the energy. Yay! Now I feel like I'm back on schedule and I've the rest of the week to relax, edit, and focus on other things.

     Cute Overload is love. They've had a few priceless ones lately, but the puppy barnacle is about as much as I can handle!

Although I'm sorry to hear that you've got a cold. I hope it's clearing! And huzzah for writing progress! And huzzah for sleep!

It was gorgeous! And a pleasant shock when I glanced out of the window.

It is clearing pretty fast, it seems! =) Thanks!

LOL. The puppy barnacle is indeed gorgeous. Thanks for sharing it. It put a smile on my face.

I'm very pleased to hear that the cold hasn't been affecting your sleep as much as you expected. No doubt you're still recovering from summer, so the last thing you need is some cold keeping you awake.

Two and a half years without a cold is good going. What's your secret? :D

Congratulations on the story progress! It sounds like it's all going well.

Glad you liked! They're so precious!

Yes, it's been wonderful that it didn't mess my sleep up much. I think the apartment getting warmer than usual helped too--I didn't get any chills at night.

;D I think it's being a hermit. Work helps--last winter after our department got split up, those of us in my area, which is limited access, had a remarkably healthy winter (what came in was brought by parents getting their kids' colds) whereas the other half down in the mail-room had an awful winter, since the mail-room folks have to handle all sorts of dubiously-clean items. Not being around kids myself definitely helps!

On quota for the month and currently mustering courage, thanks!

That is a long time w/o a cold. Good for you and glad you are getting over this one
quickly. Being able to get good sleep really helps in getting better faster.

The rainbow sounds wonderful. Great news on getting chapter 27 done.

Last night was a little more rough but it hasn't been bad overall.

I talked to my boss, and she got to see the rainbow too! It was a treat to have one this late.
