Rainy Sunday. Lousy migraine. No photos today. Slept more than most of the day.
This photo was taken out west atop some train tracks, looking down. I love the shot. I love the view. So peaceful. So soothing.
Enjoy the view & hope for a better tomorrow ❤
Today Ashley, Boston & I headed into Manteo, which sits on Roanoke Island. I’ve spoke of Boston before and her having Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and how I had watched her and experienced some of the trials her family faces. Since moving to NC I think its safe to say its been a good move forward for Boston. Today though, today I experienced a joy or rather funny side of this. CF produces a lot of phlegm and its super important that its coughed out. So Ashley and Josh have taught Boston to spit it up in a Kleenex or if outdoors, in the bushes. While walking down the sidewalks of Manteo, Boston gets to coughing pretty good, an older couple walks by with a look as if to say, “Why have that sick child in public”. Just as were passing by them Boston leans over in the bushes and spits an awesome amount of mucus. Ashley starts to congratulate her and asks for a high five….all the while I’m watching the horrified looks on peoples faces, as they’ve watched this petite beautiful girl bend over and spit in the shrubs with an overly excited mother.
She’s not sick. She’s a fighter. She’s not misbehaved, rather making her lungs healthier. She’s not a horrible parent, but a mom who has sat up many sleepless nights praying for a hour of peaceful sleep for her coughing baby girl.
After a sick, lousy day on the couch the rain finally let up and the sun began to show its true colors. Heading back home after sunset, I was satisfied with my captures for the evening and had set my camera in the passenger seat where it often sits for easy access. I noticed a car turn into an inlet that looked to run along the backside of the lake, naturally I followed. What I saw made me gasp. The view was beautiful!! There are homes going up so I realize I only have a short time to enjoy this. The above was the first photo I captured.
So I’ve got a cold. Time to break out the tea, tissues, and load up on Dayquil. I hate being sick, but it’s a part of life and it forces me to slow down. So, slow down I will. I’ll take it easy and relax. Most of today has been spent on the internet, writing these posts in my chair, surrounded by tissues, Ramen, and apple juice.
I havn’t posted due to being sick. I caught whatever has been going around strep, bronchitis or resp. infection, perhaps all three in one. I’ve been able to work and sleep and even those have been troublesome. I picked up … Continue reading
