Cool and Beautiful...

It is a balmy fifty-eight degrees, sunny and cool here today and just after lunch. I'm still coughing and would say I'm over the worst but for the postnasal drip and the stuff that comes up at night when I attempt sleep.

The tarp remains on this building and the bats are as yet problematic despite five visits from the animal control company at about $4000 a pop. One of our outside lights is still broken as well.

I feel like I'm living with a slum lord...

Other than one friend and food and grocery delivery folks, I've seen no-one and not been out except to empty the trash in a bit over three weeks. The check covering the visit of my HVAC professional was hand delivered and awaits mailing to my bank.

I do well to make a meal and wash up or get the laundry sorted and put away.

In my more awake moments, I've begun to wonder if things will ever return to a more motivated "normal"...

I hate that you have a slacker landlord. Wonder why they can't get the bats relocated?

That's a bucolic scene. I'm sorry your illness is lingering. I've heard the same story from so many people this season, respiratory conditions that just wont let go for weeks. Take it as slow as you need.

I'm glad to hear that you are recovering from your cold. And I hope everything falls nicely into place. Wishing you well!

Well, at least you're getting some cool, clear weather. Does your complex have a communal outdoor space where you can enjoy being outside? Like a pool or a communal garden? How's the a/c situation -- is it working again? I hope the bats get sorted out. Bats are amazing but you don't want them in your ceiling!

A lengthy illness will make you feel that way. You WILL get more motivated as your body recovers more fully. Rest, rest, rest!

Of course they will, patience. Says she who is permanently moaning about life as is.
Still, best wishes, the sun will shine again. To be alive is wonderful.

I own my place but the HOA is responsible for the outside and they are beginning to feel like slacker landlords.

Thanks.

I suspect this was or is more than a cold. Thanks.

It won't work well until the tarp is gone from a portion of the roof, and who knows when that will be...

e said...

Not sleeping well, so it is taking longer...thanks.

e said...

Thank you for your optimism.

That bug is certainly lingering. I think you might feel better once you've finally kicked it out of your system. The good weather is something to be thankful for. Sunny and neither too hot nor too cold.

Yes, this has been bad, but I think it is finally done, just a lot going around...
