Thankful and Grateful Day #4 Stay Home by HelpfulHannah

Real Estate Agent with HomeStarr Realty RS143922A

Today I am thankful to take the day off. The temperature dropped from  a high of 70 degrees to a high of 45 degrees. What a difference. I had all these plans, but when I woke I had a horrible migraine .  I did think after a cup of coffee and something to eat, perhaps it would go away . 


The cup of coffee went down alright and of course my Cleo was waiting for her breakfast. She will meow for her Meo Mix cup of wet food and today she was rather loud as when I looked at the clock I noticed I had slept later than usual but I had had a rather busy stressful week and felt entitled. 


I made a bagel. Did you know that an air fryer can make the best toast ever?  No need for a toaster the air fryer does it all.  My head was still pounding and my stomach was queasy. Darn migraine happens to me when there is a drastic change in weather.


I started to empty a box that said hats and scarfs because if I was going anywhere I would have to wear a hat.This was one of my very last boxes I even found some perfect holiday gifts  I started to feel a little dizzy and decided I wasn't going anywhere  


There was really no where I really had to go so I looked at Cleo and said you lucked out today! I am staying home come on we are getting back in bed . I did grab my laptop and get some work done . Grateful that everything was completed previously just going back to dot i's and cross t's. 


I have medication for the migraine, but I don't like to drive when taking it.  I also don't like to chit chat on the phone.  Thankfully, I had just started to re- watch "THE CROWN " on Netflix . Back in bed under the covers fireplace on with a cup of tea and honey.  I also screened my calls only answered urgent calls. 

Thankful indeed that I was able to stay home take care of myself and watch the Crown I just hope the migraine stays away as I have dinner plans with friends tomorrow evening

I did not realize that you could produce perfect toast or Bagels  in a air fryer. Sometimes I feel so naïve Hannah 🙂

Endre Barath, Jr.  funny you should ask my friend Rits lives somewhere outside of Anahiem and called me and told me everyone she knows was complaining about the same thing so I was allowed to feel lousy and stay home 😃

So sorry to hear about your migraine, Hannah. Trust you are feeling better today. And how nice that you have Miss Cleo to keep you company. When I don't feel well, my boys never leave my side. I had no idea about toast or bagels in an air fryer... I will have to try that... thanks so much for that tip!
