At last, we’ve had actual, golden, gorgeous sunshine for several days in a row! Everyone is walking around smiling again, even the dogs seem happier.
I know that we will be having more yucky weather, but for now it is a true joy to feel those rays on my face when I take Shmoo for his walks.
It’s even more appreciated after the last few weeks of flu that hit us here Chez Possum. I try not to use the “flu” word lightly, because most of the time it’s not really flu, just a cold. But this time I’m about 99% convinced that what hit me first, then JM was the actual big kahuna.
I think the last time I had real flu was around 15 years ago, and what I noticed is that you forget how truly awful you feel with it. Even after it’s gone, you still feel drained and exhausted for days. Right now I’m thinking that maybe next year I’ll break down and get the damned flu shot to avoid gong through this again.
The flu peak has been passed here in France, but I understand that it’s just starting in the States, so to all of you who read me across the water, stay healthy and if you run into someone coughing and looking green around the gills: RUN FAST! Just keep away from them no matter what you have to do.
Ciao for now.
