Finding rest when my body insists

I am fighting a cold, and wishing I had a few days of nothing to do. I am imagining laying in bed and reading fiction – it’s been way too long since I’ve done that. Today had too much going on, so I struggled through what needed to be done, snuffling and foggy-brained. Tomorrow has work to do as well, but I am looking forward to a quiet day on Wednesday. Maybe not enough to read a novel, but enough to luxuriate in a day of rest.
