No Pool Today

Not because I didn't want to go. I'm certainly up early enough to be there. However, last night I had a class at church, and Pastor had a cold and this morning, I woke up with one. Barely breathing all night, head achy, and just plain achy all over. I sent an e-mail to my friend that I wasn't going to bring my cold to the pool to pass it along to the others. I really don't believe in sharing these kinds of things. I'll share advice, my cookies, which I made yesterday and turned out even better with a full batch, still 100% healthy and not cheating on my diet, I'll share my toys, if I had any, but I will not share colds, flu, or anything else that will make people feel sick and unhealthy. So, I'm hoping to kick this thing in the butt and get back to the pool as soon as possible. For now, I'm finished with the notifications, and I'm going to make breakfast since it's now after 6 AM, then get started on my book. This edit and revision is going very well. I'm now down about a thousand words. I hope you are all doing well today. Thanks for reading.

I wish more people felt that way about spreading stuff. I don't allow anyone here with that. That is very thoughtful of you.

Normally I do not go to pool, not even bathtub, only take shower; due to lack of time.

I only take a shower as well when it comes to baths or showers. However, I love to swim, so I go to the pool as often as I can.

Sorry you're not feeling the best. And what a good citizen you are to stay at home and not share your germs with others. Good for you.

I am having a good day. I've been working on my book, took a break after several chapters to let my brain breathe with something on TV. Now, I'm back here getting notifications done again, before I get back to my book.

If everything goes right today, I should be back tomorrow. I'm burning this thing out with warm clothes and the door closed with the heater on in my office, keeping it toasty warm.

I would love to hear your recipe for healthy cookies. I have been trying to find a good one. And i do hope you feel better.

They're called chocolate chewy cookies on recipes dot com. I've improvised that recipe to make it 100% healthy. Substitute unsweetened applesauce for the sugar - same quantity Clarify the butter to take out all the milkfat Use Almond Flour for the all purpose flour - same quantity It's absolutely delicious. I have to keep them out of my reach or I would have all 40 gone in no time flat. Unsweetened applesauce - 50 calories per serving Bakers Chocolate powder - 15 calories per tablespoon So each cookie is going to be next to nothing in calories.

I wish others would stay home with a cold instead of spreading their germs. Hope you knock this cold out as quickly as you did your flu!

I'll be back in the pool tomorrow. It's for the most part gone, yes, just like the flu. I'm so glad nothing is sticking to me for long.

I think it's the best way to be. I don't want to give either to anyone else. It's been a bad year for both here.

That is great you do not want to take the chance of giving your cold to everyone around you. Most people do not care.

I wish there was a pool around here that was heated (the Y downtown is) and used some other method than chlorine to treat the pool as chlorine is not good for the body and it's organs becuase I would love to go and swim laps for weight control
