Good Day: 23 December 2021

Good day friends,

Hope everyone had a good nights rest. If you are only going to bed now or a bit later, wishing you a peaceful nights rest.

I have no idea where this tingle in my throat came from. It started Monday night when I went to bed. I ate two teaspoons of honey and lemon and it was better. Tuesday morning I was still had the tingle and I stopped at the one garage and got myself some Halls to suck on. It worked like a charm. When we got to the farm I was still feeling okay. Still coughing and very tired because I only had 2 hours of sleep and the road was very busy and the other drivers change lanes without signaling I had to be very alert all the time.

I had a slight headache so I drank two tablets and went to lie down for about 45 minutes. After my nap I felt great, no headache, just this tingling in my throat the whole time. Corrie, our host took us on a 4×4 drive showing us the farm. I just saw compositions galore, the most beautiful rocks, flowers, wildlife. I was still feeling great. I did not cough anymore I took in all the fresh Karoo air.

When we got back that is when it hit me. I had a fever, everyone are cold and I am the only one burning out. I took my temperature 41.7°C. I did not want to tell dad he would start panicking. I drank 2 another two tablets for the fever and cooled my self down to 37.7°C with a wet cloth and water under the aircon.

I was so excited to capture a proper Karoo Sunset and Sunrise. I did not even had the energy to pick up my camera.

The five hour drive home was the longest 500km in my life. All I wanted was a cool shower and something for the cough and the headache.

This morning my temperature is 37.8°C. I have a appointment for 11:00 at my doctor.

Dad has been coughing for a while now and he never makes an appointment with his doctor. So this morning I made one for him. His cough also got worst with our visit to Beaufort West.

According to the weather forecast, we are having a very hot, cloudy and humid Summers day. With a maximum temperature of 29°C and winds up to 25.200 km/h.

  1. Hi Coreen, your world is really picturesque. I liked the pic of the Hydrangea, a flower displaying its loveliness to enchant the viewer for several days. May you keep capturing great shots. Best wishes…
