I’m off today. The people, all of them, woke up feeling magically better and headed off to school. A full day ahead to do whatever I want…..make shortbread cookies, make more of that Beef and Barley soup I like, time to catch up with house things that are bugging me, order a new freaking mailbox…. But, no, I woke up in a funk. No reason, at all. Just feeling kind of blah. So, instead of doing some of those things I wanted to get done today, I’ve eaten all
the chocolate sorts of things I shouldn’t have and just generally been a bum. This weirdness doesn’t happen often but, when it does, it makes me so grateful that I’m generally a happy person. I cannot even imagine what it must be like to feel this way more often than not. When these funks creep up on you, how do you cope? How do you shake it off, if you will? Truly, I’m curious.
I am going to go make the soup. Then I’m going to make my shortbread dough (recipe to follow if I can remember how to make it, and assuming the changes I want to make are successful). I’m thinking that it I might practice a bit of yoga after that. Only the food portion of this plan seems really appealing now though! 😉
Okay, for the latest book. It’s an old one and I don’t know why I picked up it but I’m glad I did.
This is probably classified as a teen/young adult book. Nah, it’s really just a girl book. Funny and definitely a book that we, ladies, can relate to. I particularly loved the part about the girls discussing the pants. How none of the girls thought they’d look good on them. Because, no matter how gorgeous the girl, most of us only see our flaws. ALL the girls, despite their different body types ROCKED these pants. I totally want some! So the book wasn’t really about the pants. It was about friendship and how good friends nourish the soul. I’m going to be reading the next book….because, yes, I did just learn that this is book one of who knows how many. Maybe that’s what I need to do after this. Get the second book.
