I'm not feeling too well today.  Decided to skip church, but took Joe over.  When I went back to get him, church was still going on so I sat in the back and listened to the last 10 minutes of the message.  Of course Joe wanted to talk to people so I was there about 30 minutes before we left.

I have been feeling nauseous all day and one of my glands is swollen and painful.  I hope I am not coming down with something just when I am finally getting over this cold.

I am anxious to see how my blood test came out.  I am supposed to get the results either tomorrow or Tuesday.  Then my medication will be changed again.

Didn't do much today except sleep.  Guess that's what I needed.  But I really wanted to get some things done.  Nothing ever gets done in the house because I am always asleep.  I have been told that being so tired is part of my thyroid not working correctly.  I hope that the medication can be sorted out so that I can get some energy.

Today's photo challenge is letters.  I really didn't have a clue what to photograph.  I thought of pulling out some letters I have kept over the years.  I thought of drawing a big "K" on a piece of paper.  Nothing really appealed to me.  Tonight when I was making dinner I looked around the kitchen and saw it was full of letters.  Here's some of them for you.

My favorite picture hanging between my two windows.  It is a reminder to me to live simply.

I don't remember where I got this, but I do love fall.  It's hanging on the fridge.

My spice cabinet that my sister gave me the Christmas before I moved into this house -- 34 years ago.  It has seen much use.

Here are the letters I use the most -- my cookbooks.  These are just a few of the many cookbooks I have.  Believe it or not I use most of them a lot!  Sometimes I just read them.  Yes, I am one of those people who read cookbooks.
 So you see there really are a lot of letters in my house.  And that's just the kitchen!

I'm linking up with Kaitlin at Homemaker Design for this October photo challenge.

  1. Bless your heart! You just can't seem to get well!!! I know the feeling and it can really weigh you down....or I should say WEAR you down! Loved seeing the photos from today!! Hope you wake up feeling MUCH better!!! I am going to bed now! The COWBOYS won! The quads are staying asleep. Amber and Mike come home tomorrow! YAY!

  2. The photos were really a bright idea. I must confess I wouldn't have thought the way you did.I
    had to smile at the cookbooks.THAT would never have occured to me.But they are letters....
    I agree & hope the doctor figures out your medication. Being tired all the time is not good, but you are
    getting rest so that's something. Rest well,my friend....

  3. You ended up finding lots of letters after all. Sure hope you feel better soon and that they give you something to help with the thyroid problem. xo Diana

  4. Ha! Bevy - (at Treasured Up and Pondered) reads cookbooks too!! I didn't know this was a thing!?! I never have sat to read them...I've flipped through them, or magazines with recipes...but usually I get to hungry to actually read them!! LOL!!! Sorry you aren't feeling well!! You certainly sound like you need a day of rest - I'm glad you took it!! I like your letter photos!
