By the time I got home from taking the Big T to the airport yesterday, my cough and runny nose were getting worse, and the aches and chills were beginning.
Today I’m on the couch with a box of tissues and a honey-lemon drink. My to-do list is on hold and I think I’ll be looking for joy in the small things for the next few days.
While I’ve been out tramping through neighbourhood drifts of crisp fallen leaves, the hibiscus at my gate has found its groove at last — sending up new leaves and flower buds.
Luckily, most are healthier and less chewed-on than this one.

I guess I’m feeling a bit aimless today.
Each day there’s a little more sky visible through the trees in my local park. How long until all the leaves are gone?
