comforts of home

Today I’m taking a sick day and spending an entire Saturday enjoying the comforts of home. Especially lovely is the sunny November light pouring through the windows this morning. If  I have to be sick, I’d prefer there to be sun– gloomy days make me feel even more ill.

No worries, it’s not the FLU. It is in fact a rather stubborn cold which is doing bad things to my sinuses & throat. I shall sip many cups of tea and enjoy some more of The Office (season 5), and hopefully I will be all better in time for my 3-10 shift tomorrow afternoon (a girl needs some cash flow, people).


Sometimes I enjoy wandering around the apartment, sort of taking in all of the little things I sometimes miss in my usual rushing around before work. Weekends, particularly sick days, are an especially good time to do so.

ceramic deer

This ceramic deer is something I rescued from our apartment building’s laundry room. People drop off various commemorative mugs and things they don’t want/need anymore, and if no one takes them I’m pretty sure they’re all trashed. I felt that I couldn’t let that happen to this particular deer. So I brought it home.

bowl of love

I put these glass hearts in a bowl for Valentine’s day like four years ago, and then I liked how it looked. So I kept them.

And this is my new Work Mug, which cheers me up and allows me to drink tea at breaktime. I’ve been hooked on this kind called “green & black”, which is a mixture of the two. Sometimes I find green tea to be a bit bland, and adding black tea was a nice solution.

Anyways, excuse me now while I do some general tidying-up around the place. If that sounds crazy for a sick day, blame it on the illness. My head isn’t quite right. I find that sometimes when I’m not feeling well, I just want everything around me to be clean, shiny, and tidy. It’s not like I’ll be dragging around a vaccuum cleaner or anything. Enjoy the weekend- I hope everyone is having such lovely weather! (In NoVEMber!)

PS: Does anyone know what to do with a crazybones kitten who jumps on everything and knocks objects off of shelves, tables, countertops, and all surfaces of the house? Seriously, she is trouble.
