This month I managed to catch a stubborn virus...started with sore throat and has all the elements of a nasty headcold(not that there are any good headcolds). My youngest grandkids(I get to keep them several times a week) had the virus to start with...they actually had strep throat also.
I drove to our beach house this week to wash a twin comforter that had come home after several years away. The wind was so strong...blowing the waves...and cold. I returned to the beach house on Wednesday. The weather was wonderful...calm waves, pleasant air. I sat on the upper deck just enjoying the view and the warm. It seemed to make the cold virus disappear for a few hours. I love the beach, but since we rent it out during the peak spring and summer months, I do not get to enjoy this house as much as I would like. But I need the income to pay the taxes and expenses there. Mustn't complain.
