and filtered sunlight
winter writes its daily script
icy fingers on the pane

Looking back through the archives again, today.
I did not awake in time to take a photo of the frost on the window, and so I have gone into my archives. This frost face is from this date in 2009. (Aren’t archives fun!?!)
Evidently I overdid it on Monday and used nearly all of Tuesday’s spoons, too. I took a lot of naps. I woke up at 7:30 or so, this morning, even though I took my last antibiotics pill yesterday morning. Samantha (my Cocker Spaniel) was not awake, and so I got another three hours of sleep. Headed for the Toddy coffee, which is in the microwave, nice and hot.
Best wishes for your day!

I’m recovering health quite nicely. It’s just taking a while. The cold is now confined to a persistent cough.
Warming pattern is supposed to begin this week, preventing spooky faces from peering in through the frost.
Some of you may remember this photograph from a few years ago (2012-12-31). I have recropped and reworked the original image since then.
Larger image here.)
Here is another photo from the same day, same window. It was a very nice day for photographing the frost. A great variety of textures and images.
I’ve checks to write and mail, today, but I think that aside from that, it’s a little mild exercise and then back into sleep. However, I still have a recent frost photo that I can share.
My SpO2 is up from 85% to 89% from when awakening, and my pulse rate has dropped from 101 to 69 bpm, but still experiencing eye strain, I think, and fatigue. A long stretch of sleep, i think. Hopefully, I can play catch-up with the poems over the weekend.
With regard to the “animal” prompt for yesterday’s poem, when I think about animals, my mind goes straight to PETA, changing weather patterns, and species extinction. I didn’t realize the amount of anger (frustration?) in me related to such matters.
ETA: Feeling much, much better after longish sleep. Going to try an outing for groceries after a bit. Maybe even the butcher shop.
