It's Sunday morning again.

When I woke this morning, I had a severe headache and stiff back, neck and shoulders. I got up just long enough to take painkillers, and then went back to bed to wait for them to become effective. The combination of the painkillers and a hot shower once the drugs had kicked in seems to be working, and I'm feeling pretty good at the moment. I'll make sure to stay well hydrated through the day, and hopefully keep the headache at bay via that method.

I'm sitting in the kitchen, near the patio doors, and paused just a moment ago when a robin landed on the deck railing, and preened before flying off. It finally feels a bit like spring here. Finally.

It's Mother's Day today, and in a few hours my brother will come to pick me up, and we'll have lunch together with our mom and grandma and family. Dad is barbecuing steaks, and there is other tasty food planned as well. I still need to write a card for my mom. I bought the card, but I need to put a message into it.

I actually feel like reading this morning, or working at least a little on a creative project, so I think I'm off to do those things.

Happy Mother's Day!
