Today dawned beautifully, sunny and warm. I opened up our whole house to let the air in and felt it swirl around me. Somehow, the brightness lead me outside to work in the front yard for a few hours. I raked, pulled weeks, planted, swept, swept, swept, power washed, and scrubbed. It was so very pleasant, which is weird because I've never been much of a yard person. After I came in, I was just exhausted, but I felt good too because not only did the yard look good, but I felt like I worked my body pretty well. Like gardening, I'm not much of an exercise person, but it does feel good to be active during the day.
Later, I made a healthy dinner and we watched some t.v. As we sat down, I felt my head start spinning. Random. I was so very dizzy for several hours. Maybe I was dehydrated. I didn't really drink anything all day, especially with all that time out in the warm sun. Or maybe my body was just tired from all the yard work. I don't know. But it sure felt pretty funky. I spent the evening drinking cup after cup of water in case it is dehydration, so I'm in anticipation of a long night. And it must be noted, as soon as my body felt ill, I wanted to turn to food. Food just feels like a cure-all to me and I turn to it to cure illness, create happiness, and it would probably save the whales too. However, tonight I didn't eat anything more, so I still don't feel well. It's either a dose of self-medicating ice-cream or an early bedtime.... G'night!
