Our spring has gone unseasonably cold and overcast and as a result I have a mild case of the winter miseries. To shake myself out of it, I went to the library and took out some books. The library's layout has been changed so I tried to walk into the door that is now the exit. Old habits are hard to shake.
I had to get some more vitamin c to at least help manage the chronic fatigue and get my body a little stronger after the flu hit it like a four by two (a solid piece of wood used in housing construction - Australian idiosyncratic saying). Thankfully, the pharmacy assistant was in a good, and helpful mood, and that helped too. It was nice to offered help and a quick conversation.
Then I was still feeling a little down, due in part to chronic fatigue rearing it's head too, so I went for a wander along the beach. I was walking along when my brain said to me, "fruit tree". After a few minutes of foraging, I now have some tiny plums which will soon ripen. Free fruit for a few minutes work. I left plenty for other people to gather. This went some way to cheering me up.
The truth is, I quite like the cooler weather now I have my thyroid a little balanced. I just woke up feeling very unwell and the clouds reflected my mood. We had a heat wave last week and I was decidedly snappy and overheated. Still, I would have thought my mood would have improved more easily but that's moods for you, sometimes best tackled head on, or ignored until they pass.
