Uh Oh, I’m Sick (Japan – Autumn 2018 Day 11)

No fun adventures had. No plethora of photos. No good foods eaten.

I went to bed last night with a raging sore throat and hoped for the best, that I’d wake feeling better… but that did not happen.

Despite wanting to get out of bed and make the most of my day this cold was bad enough that it felt best to stay in bed and rest… I slept this day away, not waking until sometime after 5pm.

My throat is about half as sore as it was this morning, so there is improvement. Currently I am laying awake at 10 pm, editing photos because I am having trouble falling asleep… gotta get the photos ready to update to the past few days of blogs that I have already typed up and are waiting to be published.

Paulina was a sweetheart and walked over to Lawson to fetch a salad and a hot lemon and honey drink for me… that warmed my heart as well as soothed my throat.

Here is to hoping that I’ll be fully recovered on the morrow.


Turning Bad Into Good

There are some days that are extraordinary.

There are some days that are routine.

There are some days that are laid back and relaxing.

There are some days that are busy.

Then… there was today. Today was a day of physical un-comfortableness, boring and un-productive. It gave me a lot of time to think this afternoon, and it was good productive thought that I think will move me in some very good directions in the near future and most certainly spawned some highly creative thought. Even though today was awful in a few ways, I definitely cannot deem it a “bad day”… some good actually came out of it.

I’m winding down the day with this awesomeness Jurassic Park Theme – 1000 times slower. I know that I said it the other day on Facebook but I just cannot stop listening to this song – hearing it this slow it’s almost like a new song. I’ve always been emotionally moved by this piece in real-time, but hearing it this way… well, it’s beauty tears at my heart and moves me to tears no matter how many times I listen.

No Post Yesterday!?!?!

EEP! I ruined my (small) posting streak! Today I will post twice – right now about today and later about yesterday.

Today was a not-so-great day, but I’m turning the evening around! I’m relaxing now while dinner cooks… well, as much relaxing as you can do while your’re having to go back to the stove.

Weather was practically warm compared to the last couple of weeks of temperatures in the 30’s. It must have been 50-something today, and I was absolutely craving a nice long hike.

Nope, I don’t even care that it would be muddy up on the trails. A long, strenuous hike is exactly what I needed and wanted today, but that will have to wait for a new pair of hiking boots. 🙂
