The Uncomplicated Life : Living in the Moment

A good book. 
An old quilt. 
A Sunday afternoon.

Sometimes it takes a bit of illness 
to remind you once again 
that life is sweeter 
when it's uncomplicated.

Wishing my kindred spirits a beautiful week.

  4. I long for uncomlicated days, until that time comes for me, I will enjoy reading your blog about a Wonderful Life at home or on the road. In the meantime, I cherish our friendship and occasional dinners at our fav location or others that pop up inbetween. Get well soon sweetie, much love from My Meadow! ~Mary :)

  5. Any clues what your illness is? Praying for your healing. In the meanwhile, enjoy your rest.

    1. Elizabeth, I suffer from chronic sinusitis a lot. This time seems longer and worse than other times. Cannot shake it. Going to see new doc Thursday, or at least that's the plan.

  8. I hope you're feeling better soon. Sinusitis is not fun. Looks like you are able to enjoy yourself a little anyway.

  9. Do you ever use a netti pot? I used to have bad sinusitis until I started using one. I rarely have problems anymore. Now I have my daughter using one too.

    1. Kim, I will have to Google that. :) I've used something, years ago, but can't recall what it was called.

    2. Yes, or saltwater "snuffs" using the bowl of a spoon. Miraculous.

      Mend well, friend.

      Hugs and happy highways,
      Kelley~

  12. Hoping that you're feeling better soon. But, in the meantime, enjoy the still moments. You know, we need to give ourselves permission to have those more often...even when we're not ill. Living in the moment could *cure* a lot of stuff, huh?! :-)

    GOD BLESS!

  13. This reminds me of someone else's post out there in blog land about a weather "event" doing the same thing. Forced stillness and "nothingness" is restorative in so many ways. I hope it fully restores YOU.

  14. sometimes it takes a sick day to slow down... glad you are taking it, and enjoying the quiet! i hope the sick doesn't last long though!

  15. Hi Dayle! I hope you are feeling better now. I'm glad that you were taking care of yourself. It does take a 'forced time out' sometimes to slow down...heal and feel cozy.
    Blessings to you my friend,
    Ceil

  16. I so hope you're feeling better! Hopefully, the Dr can find a solution for you. Do you have allergies? I give myself shots 2x a week, take Singulair at night and Zyrtec in the mornings. Not fun! I find a Neti Pot to be cumbersome to use. I use a sinus rinse...Neil Med. Helps a LOT! You can buy it in any drug store and most grocery stores. It's in a navy & white box with red. So much easier to use.
