what a week. the migraines totally blindsided me - sometimes i feel them coming and sometimes i just don't. this time it was three days of feeling like it might be a good idea if my head exploded.
the first thing to go is my ability to write. the second thing is my appetite. the third is my ability to carry on any kind of human interaction. but i still managed to get stuff done - low-level sorts of stuff that let my world chug along so i don't have to spend all my time shoveling out of a disaster zone.
i've even managed to make headway (pun intended) with my bathroom project.
the walls are all sponged, and i'm really happy with the way it came out. im even more happy since Beloved said he liked it. i was hoping that a judicious use of navy blue might show him that dark colors aren't Bad Colors... in small doses, they add depth. the shower curtain is finished and hung. the countertop is painted and sealed. the woodwork is painted. the only things i have left to do are to make the window ruffle and the sink skirt. i'm hoping Beloved will help me hang the curtain rod this weekend, and come with me to HD to pick out a new faucet for the sink.
my head subsided enough to allow me to be walked twice, and to spend time in the company of dear friends two nights this week. dinner tonight will be a recipe i found in Real Simple - i've decided that if i ever get to Heaven, my slice of it's going to look a lot like the pictures in Real Simple magazine - involving shrimp, lemon and couscous, and i'm just tickled with myself i happen to have all those things on hand. little things like that make me happy.
i got a really cool toy box from my sweet bloggy friend lynette over at TheySayImNuts (though i can't imagine why) - that delighted Baby Jake when i opened it in front of him. he dropped by to show me and the puppies his new hair cut. so he is even MORE adorably cute than he was in that photo!!
i'm going to be writing an article for the local New Age journal on eating the angel way, and i'm really excited about it. i know the Angels want me to get the information out. i know a few gentle readers have tried this approach... if you have any comments, feedback, questions, or an experience you'd like to share, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.... i understand there's an issue with the blogger link i can't figure out how to fix!
i wish all my gentle readers a restful, nourishing and nurturing weekend. happy daylight savings' time! (personally i think it's silly but it's an official sign of spring.)
and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.
