What a great Sunday morning! The reason I say this is because I was fighting a migraine all day Saturday. So, to wake up today without a headache is wonderful.
Now, my migraines today are not like the old ones when I was younger. Those were awful and would sometimes take me to the ER. But these 'in my older years' are more 'ocular migraines'... which affect my sight... zigzag lines that cross my vision and on occasion (like yesterday) leave me headachy all day.
I've often wondered 'why' I get migraines. Wonder if the time I was thrown off a horse and had a concussion (when I was 9) had anything to do with it? They didn't start until I was 23... and pregnant with my 2nd child (so hormones could be the culprit). And I do think stress is the thing that makes most health issues worse. However, my elderly body seems to be more easily stressed these days... even though my mind (which has an abundance of common sense) tells it to behave and stay calm.
Oh well, let's let that topic go. I'm headache free today and that's great! Yesterday is gone and today is a new day. My plans are to write a post and make a shepherd's pie for supper - nothing too exciting, but looking forward to it non-the-less. I did text with my daughter this morning about our plans for Easter Sunday dinner. She is making a chicken dish and I'm doing a broccoli and cauliflower casserole... as well as a carrot souffle. We plan on pie for dessert... not sure what kind yet.
And Tom on Sightings over Sixty mentioned simple pleasures we have in retirement - and I have to say that most of these I enjoy are really simple. Friday DH and I went out to a Coffee Shop that I've been meaning to check out for ages. They are a coffee roasting company that recently branched out to open a shop and have taken over an old coffee shop that we used to visit before the pandemic. It was so great to be out and have good drip coffee (and they even offered GF goodies). We also ended up walking the area - which is an open shopping strip with a cute square in the center with trees and benches, etc. I had planned to take pics, but as usual - forgot. But the weather was perfect (cool and overcast) and for such a simple thing, we really enjoyed ourselves.
Life is good...
Enjoy your Sunday! I know I will.
