Our fantabulous weather appears to be over for the time being, and we are settling into more normal Spring temperatures — closer to 50°F rather than 75°F. What with the low temperature and cloud and wind, it was a might nippy when we headed over to be with Nikki Dee this morning. But it appears to be a bit sunnier now, and perhaps I'll get the little one out for a walk before the morning wanes.
The colds continue to hang on. In fact, mine has revived a bit after a day and a half when I was beginning to feel better. On the bright side, however, my throat isn't as sore, and I didn't cough last night. The night before was bad for coughing, and as a result I was up a lot. However, when I think of it, which isn't nearly as often as it should be, I try to practice Eckhardt Tolle's principal of being aware of the present. So, when I couldn't sleep, I refused to get frustrated or worry about being tired the next day. Instead I told myself that I simply wasn't sleeping but that I was comfortable. I tried to be aware of my bodily position and to sense comfort in it, and I think it helped.
Also, The Bonnie Wee One had a rather fine day yesterday not requiring the distraction of the electronic babysitter even once. Again, I tried to be present with her as much as possible. I walked with her when she wanted to and endeavoured to soak it the joy of holding her little hands because she won't require my assistance much longer. In truth she probably doesn't need it now, but she's a little too timid to let go. So, we walked a bit, danced a bit, and read a bit. She also entertained herself a lot too, and we had a real good day.
I hope you have a good day too.
