What a strange day today. I was supposed to fly home today but James had postponed it till Monday for me so I could be a few more days with mother - - but then I didn't get to see her today.
Two days ago was a very hot day. Yesterday it was cold and rainy all day and I felt chilly most of the time. Just in case I made a stop at a pharmacy to get some zinc tablets - - and took one. This morning I woke up not feeling 100% and decided I could not go to mother like that in case I was fighting something. I thought I might be getting a cold and would not forgive myself if I carried some germs to her.
I decided to take another zinc and that I needed a walk. So I was taking care of some things on foot. Sorting out something at the bank, getting a birthday card and something for William etc. The walk felt great. So I went again in the afternoon. The post office was closed (Wednesday afternoon - - very German). But I knew a short cut back through a (rough) little park and some houses.
Hey, I was lucky here. Smelled the dog poop before I stepped into it.
We are in Germany, right?
Ute and Maren saw mother today and she was very much the same, sleeping most of the time. Hadn't really missed me.
I must say that I feel totally fine now. Those two walks did wonders. A forced reprieve. Divine intervention? Ready for tomorrow!
