Crippy cold

I've caught a lousy cold from Jim and Jessica.  I hate that!  I dislike feeling stuffed up and tired around the brain, and woozy, and stuffed up.  I haven't gone for my morning walk since last Friday, not over the weekend because the children were there (enough walking that weekend anyway), and since then I just haven't felt well enough.
The weather is totally weird, temperatures in he 70's, it being humid to boot.
Anyway, I'm trying to get back to normal, and walked to and around my pond this morning.  Totally in the dark. We won't change over time until he weekend.

On deck for the weekend is leaf removal - the driveway, deck and yard are covered with leaves.  And I want to finish one of the  fleece jackets I started and finally use buttons my brother made on something I'm wearing!

Speaking of brother - I talked to my sister-in-law Vera yesterday.  Claus broke his pelvis!  The last time we talked, he mentioned his hips were hurting.  I actually told him, that doing the 'butterfly' exercises helped my hip, and he just groaned at the thought of doing those.  He finally went to the doctor, was x-rayed, and they found a broken pelvis.  I looked at the picture of a pelvis on Wikipedia, and I haven't a clue where the break would be.  There is nothing they do for it, he is up, moving on crutches, and went to physical therapy.  And he's home for the next two weeks.

In the meantime, the fall is progressing rapidly.  And so gorgeous!  Right now the leaves are starting to fall, it smells like fall, and we sill have decent temperatures, which will change by tomorrow.

Hmmm.  And since this is a blog, I get to stop writing my entry abruptly, without easing into a conclusion.
