I Wish I Were Here

I am in rough shape today.  I have a cold, plus I pulled a muscle in my leg.  I think the latter is from the copious amounts of walking we do.  I'm not used to a 5km walk, just to get home each day (often we walk more).  My body rebelled, but too late because I am completely addicted to the walking now and just hobble along.

At home, I am rarely sick.  When I am, I always figure that a day in bed or on the sofa, with movies and magazines in hand, is just what the doctor ordered.  It forces me to relax, unwind and recharge.  Am I weird in embracing a cold?

Here, although our Budapest apartment is pretty, there's no time, or place, for lounging.  I have a research deadline and need to book it (pun intended).  So today, in the library, I am dreaming of fluffy, comfy, airy bedrooms (my own included) where I could lay my head down.  Just for a bit.

Speaking of beds, have you wondered where we sleep?  We have a small sofa and chair that both morph, transformer style, into beds.  Here's mine:

  1. I love the look of art above the head of the bed. It's such a nice focal point :)

    I hope you feel better soon!

    1. Thanks, I hope so too!

      I love artwork over the bed as well. Our guest room has two paintings in lieu of a headboard and it's just so cheery and pretty.

  2. Hope you feel better! I just got over a little cold I had on the weekend. I spent the whole time sleeping and I guess I really needed it!

  3. I hope you feel better soon, so not fun to be out of your own home when you are sick.
    Hang in there, too bad you have so much work to do.
    Try to find a moment to relax with some tea.
    Take care

    1. Thanks!

      Aren't some of those bedrooms simply gorgeous?? Many have such uplifting colour palettes, it would be impossible to feel gloomy in them!

  5. I totally embrace a cold as well. Gee, I'm glad I'm not the only one. My husband thinks I'm a total weirdo for not drugging up when I'm sick.

  6. I love all those rooms, especially the first and third one. I am the same as you.. kinda embrace the cold so that I can not feel guilty about relaxing. I am nursing one right now too and I'm ready for it to take a hike though!

    1. Oh gosh, sounds like so many people are sick! Tis the season, I guess. I hope you feel better soon (we can only enjoy forced relaxation so much, right?)
