Oh Oh October

Oh Oh October

Where did summer go? The weather is still unseasonably warm for this time of year. But it’s already October. And a week from today I’ll be back in Mexico.

More goodbyes in the past few days. More last meals with friends in favorite restaurants. More classes have ended until next spring. More last minute shopping to do and of course the dreaded packing.

My characters have been talking up a storm. I hope they keep it up once I get back down to Mexico. They really didn’t have much to say last winter.

The fatigue is easing off and I’m glad I only teach two days this week instead of four. Fatigue seems to be a common symptom after the second Pfizer booster.

I’ve taken quite a few pics of my tree in Cashmere this past week. The leaves are changing color daily and I hope that brilliant red will be visible before I leave next weekend.

The smoke is still around, some days more than others. Highway 2 is closed again near Snohomish with no detour through the pass. Fires near Entiat have been contained.

Hurricane Ian devastated Florida and is headed inland to wreak more havoc. And a hurricane south of Mazatlan is threatening the Mexican coast. Glad I decided to fly into Guadalajara.

Off to Sage Hills for the last time until next spring. Then Clairesse and I will have one final brunch together. I’m sure we’ll find another shopping adventure this afternoon. We always do.

Happy Sunday!

So How Did It Affect You?

So How Did It Affect You?

I had my second booster last week. Pfizer with the omicron. I was delighted that last week the only side effect I had was fatigue. 36 hours of sleep in 48 hours.

I ran around like crazy all weekend. Back to my normal self, whatever that may be. I hate the word ‘normal.’

My friend Connie had hers just after I did. She never made it to breakfast on Saturday or to the parade.

Yesterday morning at our fitness class we were lamenting about the fatigue. How it was hard to get out of bed that morning, a week later. In walks Rose who has a decade on us. Bright eyed and bushytailed and boosted just yesterday!

I did my usual running around yesterday and came home around 4:30. I was supposed to go out with friends for dinner but couldn’t keep my eyes open. I was passed out cold and didn’t wake up until 8. I was determined to stay awake for an hour and almost made it.

Today is Wednesday and I teach a fitness class at 2:30. I often joke that I can teach these classes in my sleep. Hmmmm…..
