Ouchies Require Chocolate

Ouchies Require Chocolate

The weather plays far too much of a role in running my life. It’s grey, windy, rainy, and generally disgusting outside.

My extreme leg pains are back with a vengeance as a result of this cool, damp weather.  I’m going into hibernation mode and needing to nap and nap and nap.  My window has a major draft, so I’m also already shivering away at night too.  I hope we plastic over it for the winter.  Can you tell that I’m really happy about all of this?

I want those nice apple-picking Fall days, and not these cold, dreary ones!  Cue The Rolling Stones‘ song ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’.  My brain has its own soundtrack depending on what course my thoughts take!

I intended to post yesterday, but my anxiety got the better of me, so I instead just stared at the blank computer screen.

As for pop culture – I’ve watched Top of the Lake (good but highly disturbing) and I’ve started House of Cards (I’m already addicted!).  I just finished reading The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, which was quite a good book.  It had a slow start, but really picked up in the middle.  Everything I’m seeing and reading lately has a creepy atmosphere to it.  I should probably work on changing that.

I need chocolate.  Yes.

How are you all on this Thursday?

  1. I overdid it yesterday and am wrecked today but the good news is that you’ve inspired me to start blogging. I’m only on day 2 and not quite ready to share it yet but feeling good and have lots of ideas. Thanks Annie :)

  2. Sandy! I’m so glad that you’re blogging! I’m glad that I’ve inspired you – it makes me feel better because I’ve been a little less than inspired about mine! I can’t wait to see it :)

    Julie, I loved Orange is the New Black. Netflix is the best :)

  3. I love “The Woman in White” – Librivox.org has a good audiobook version of it for free download. Other Wilkie Collins books I enjoyed are Armadale, Moonstone, and No Name. DON’T read “The Law and the Lady” though. There are two disabled characters who are written with all the sensitivity and tact that you’d expect from the Victorian age. Really appalling.
