So, Friday was exciting!

Read on...
aldersprig: (LynConstruction) that sometimes you have to make your own comfort food.

Usually, T. makes me things like broth or risotto, and that's wonderful, but this time, I had (have) a sore throat/swollen glands, and I was seriously missing my mom's vanilla pudding, that she used to make me when I was sick sometimes.

I haven't lived at home in 20 years or so, and, besides, my mom's at a yoga seminar on the other side of the country (details are fuzzy) right now.

So I had to make my own.

I used a pretty basic Betty Crocker recipe, and it turned out - not quite like my childhood (not as grainy, and a little too sweet, which could be refined tastes) - but very yummy.

And, ya know? It made me feel better for a bit, too.

(I am still taking commissions at 150 words/$1 for someone to re-up my paid DW account... I miss my icons.)

I left work sick on Monday and spent most of the time between then and now sleeping or feeling miserable.

Back nao.

In better news, Theo is feeling much better!

But, Mousie, thou art no thy lane,
In proving foresight may be vain;
The best-laid schemes o' mice an 'men
Gang aft agley,
An'lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promis'd joy!

Plan for day: 20-10-20s, of housework-rest-writing

So far today:
20 kitchen, 10 play, 20 writing, lunch, drugstore for battery for thermometer, REALLY upset cat for a couple minutes, migraine+sinus headache=nap.
Then hanging out with spouse and cats for twenty minutes, which at least was totally worth it. :-)

Hello and happy Saturday!

I confess, "everyone else is doing it" is a very strong motivator for me to not do something: dye my hair red, even when I wanted to. Wear something fashionable. Start weight loss programs in January.

So, what are you doing nicely for yourself this year?
