No Mo’ NaBloPoMo

I feel like I have been put through the ringer with this awful head cold or flu and am growing restless with lying around but have just enough energy to post something, no matter how rag-tag, mysterious and bloated its contents, I am meeting the simplest of requirements for NaBloPoMo and writing on this, the 30th and final day of November.

Smiling, your voice nearly, completely stolen, you could not speak, except for the raspy words, “don’t cry.”  I cried for you. Wait, no, you are at peace. I cried for me, knowing that I would never see your smiling face again, never hear your jokes or quick wit, never feel the presence of your kind, generous spirit nearby.

Never again shall I hear the special name by which only you called me nor take fun and exciting excursions at your side. I shall miss you for the rest of the days of this life. Until we meet again ~ Love, [my special name]


DAY 30



Day 29 NaBloPoMo

Day 29 of NaBloPoMo and day 3 of this blasted cold or flu. Today’s arsenal includes green tea with lemon and local honey along with massive doses of Vitamin C, lots of water, wrapping myself in a comforter and resting. Thanks to Benadryl for acting like sleeping pills for the dogs, this is two nights in a row I was able to get a full night’s sleep – and so did they! Hopefully by Monday, I will have kicked this bug out of my life and start putting up Christmas decorations.

Meanwhile, I will try to visit my blogging friends’ blogs when I have bursts of unclouded consciousness.
