Back At It

Ah, it feels good to be almost healthy again! As I wrote on Saturday, I’ve been sick since last week. I had a cold that settled in my chest and I just could not get rid of it. So I spent most of my time just resting, reading, watching movies, doing some online trading… OK, maybe I wasn’t buying and selling stocks. But I did get halfway through Knitting Rules! and watched a bunch of both old and new movies. So things could have been worse. I’m still doing a bit of coughing, but I can at least hold a conversation now 🙂

I’m afraid I’ll have to put my Yarn Harlot book away for the next few days because yesterday I got a call from the library that they had Twilight on the hold shelf for me! I’ve been waiting for about a month. I’m not letting myself dive in, though, until I’ve gotten my house back on track. I still have laundry to put away, but if I can pry myself away from the computer for about half an hour, I bet I can finish that. But then I have to make dinner too, and pick up our CSA share tonight… Argh! Well, I know I can get some solid reading time in on Thursday when I take the car to be serviced. How funny is it that I’m looking forward to treating myself to a latte and sitting in the dealership’s lounge while reading my vampire book? Simple pleasures, I tell ya. 🙂

Tomorrow we are getting our “new” piano! We’re having Drew’s mom’s piano moved from her house to ours. She doesn’t play and it is taking up room in her smallish den, so that means we get to enjoy it. I know Drew is really looking forward to having it. And who knows? Maybe I can learn to play something besides “Twinkle, Twinkle.”

  1. A piano?!?! I have wanted a piano for quiet some time!! Mind you, none of us play around here, but I would love for my children to have lessons. My husband’s co-worker got rid of one a few years ago and my husband said no thanks. No thanks-what was he thinking?!?!
    Anyway, I received all the wonderful things you sent-thank you so much!!

  2. By the way ~ what are your birthday plans? Just wondering. Hope you enjoy your special day on Sunday!
