Wow, I woke up this morning energized! So now I know to give it at least 5 days before I start feeling like my old self again, at least as far as the energy level is concerned. They said 2-3, but they also said chemo treats everybody different.
I feel like taking a walk today, looking at the green grass, but not feeling it... Florida grass is horrible compared to the lush Michigan grass I grew up in. During my trip to NYC in September I sat down and felt the grass, there was heaven! It brought back all the memories I had of rolling around as a child on that beautiful, kelly green carpet of nature. I miss "real" grass, Florida's is just too picky and itchy. I also want to take the time to notice the flowers, maybe bring my camera with me to catch what is blooming. I loves taking stills of flowers. I get to keep their beauty with me always, and they get to stay alive and thrive. No picking flowers for me! I am of an unusual sort, I know women LOVE to get flowers, but I prefer a potted plant of flowers. A bouquet of flowers just says, "enjoy my beauty, for I will die on you very soon" and that saddens me. I feel like finding a canal near here and sit on the bank of it and watch the water birds. I have some great shots of our water fowl here. I thank my mother for all of this. She is the one that taught me to appreciate all of nature and it's creatures. I think this is going to be a very good day today!
Come on sunrise! It's a brand new day!
