What I was hoping would be a fun day for my family turned out to be total poop. Why? Because I’m siiiiiiiick /whining
I’d been stuffy-nosed for the last few days, but this morning I woke up and I’ve turned into a total snot faucet! Also tired, achey, weak and floppy, all those good things. I spent most of the day in bed- I even had breakfast (pancakes) and lunch (soup & toast) in bed. Unfortunately I can’t watch movies in there anymore because I moved my computer out here to the library, so I’ve mostly just been reading on my Kindle. I actually noticed something weird about it a few weeks ago: when it goes to “sleep” it puts an image on the screen- either and old-timey drawing or a picture of a writer. For some reason Emily Dickinson shows up on mine more than any other picture. When you wake the Kindle up the screen flashes briefly and I SWEAR you can see her skull and creepy grinning teeth.
NOT COOL, AMAZON. NOT COOL. Another weird thing: earlier this week I was having a bath and sulking because I can’t read in the tub, so I made Taylor come read to me out of his Wired magazine (or as I call it, BORING MONTHLY). He turned the page and there was a full page ad for waterproof cases for e-readers! Serendipitous! Although I guess I could just put it in a freezer bag, ha.
I did leave the house once today- I had to mail a couple more prints (Thank you Kerri and Miranda!!) and deposit a rebate cheque I got from my KitchenAid stand mixer, but I also really really wanted to go to the art supply store to buy canvases for the mural I’m doing for my friend.
I ended up adjusting slightly from my original design- I was able to find smaller canvases for the 5 small planets, and I also decided it would look better if all the paintings were square instead of having two random rectangular ones.
Anyway that’s all. Taylor is napping since he woke up at 3:45 this morning, but I’m going to go wake him up and see if he wants to watch a movie with me or something. I’ll leave you with this picture I took of his dog this morning. I call it “Kichou in Furs.”
