running away

I have run away for a few days. No, actually, I have been at my eldest daughter's house due to its location, closer to my paying job. Since my car is still out of commission -- it will apparently need a whole new motor!! -- it has just been easier to negotiate the trip to the paying job by staying with my daughter. And thank-goodness for that!

It strikes me again how often there are benefits to be found around every seemingly horrible trial. My stay here has been a treat in many ways: lots of opportunities to chat with my daughter, my son-in-law and my granddaughter, playing in their urban garden (an interesting contrast to our rural garden out in Kawartha Lakes).

The stress must be getting to me however, despite all my efforts to stay positive in my outlook. I now have a cold. I was feverish most of last night, sore throat, achy... Ugh!
