Other Things...

Some of you, who have read recent Life with Lynnie (LwL) entries, might be wondering what I did with my time, when I was ill and couldn't sleep.  Well, that's what I will tell you, today.

I didn't read much.  I will say that.  Why?  Well, when my head is hurting beyond belief and my sinus' hurt, the last thing I want to do is try to focus on the written page. 

Of course, with all the aching in my body, including my arms, the last thing I want to do is even physically hold a book in my hands.

Even so, as I began to feel I was improving, I did read a little.  I read my Bible, off and on for a few minutes at a time.

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I read through my Bible, annually.  I don't keep track of where I should be at this point in time, but I will say that I have just finished Numbers.  The next book of God's Word in my reading future, is of course, Deuteronomy.

But, with all that awake/alert time, I did other things. 

Even though I didn't have much energy, I found myself doing small things around my home.  Nothing major, but little things, like tidying this, or dusting that.  While it didn't amount to much at any one given time, later I was grateful I had pushed myself to not just sit and stare out onto my view from my apartment.

Although, I must admit, I love the view I have.  And, for me, the best part is that I don't have to do anything or go anywhere to look out, onto what I consider to be one of the most relaxing views I could have.

My recliner chair is located immediately next to the sliding door that leads to my balcony.  All I have to do is look out from where I am seated, to enjoy it.  Thank You, Lord!

While this pic is not a view from where I am usually seated, but it is represenatative of what I look out onto, on a daily basis:


Yes, this is a summer view...


...as is this one.

Okay, I'll admit it.  Those pics were taken a couple of summers ago.  However, at this time, we have no snow.  Other than the boats not being there, these views are basically what I see, now (without the green tree leaves, of course).

If we had snow at this time, my view might look like this pic, also taken a couple of years ago, during a winter with snow:




... but, we don't have snow, this year.  Just one more reason to be thankful!  lol :-))  Blessings, friend.


Until next time...
