Snow and ice and other ruminataions
Greetings Friendly Bloggers!
I write this post tonight amidst a gentle falling snow. There is nothing like a little snow to brighten one's spirits. Everything is coated with lovely snow with the most beautiful snow clinging to the trees and plants. It is like magic to me. Enjoy a few pictures of our lake just beginning to freeze.
That leaf is floating on the ice.
Now you are looking through the ice at the rocks on the edge of the lake.
After seven weeks of coughing and what seemed like an upper respiratory virus, I finally went into see my doctor. I was surprised to find out that I actually had a pretty bad case of bronchial asthma. I now understand why I was short of breath and could not really exercise these past many weeks. After a week with a couple of different inhalers I am way better and my cough is almost gone. Hurray!! Finally. I hope to start slowly to get back into exercise with some walking. Now that it is snowy I probably will not be able to ride much...
My friend Jo's husband has just entered hospice for his esophageal cancer. Jo has bravely stood by her love. Each of her updates resonates with her love for him. I can not imagine how hard this must be. My heart is heavy for them both. Please keep them in your prayers and thoughts.
Life is short.
