Highlight of the week: It's been a pretty uneventful week. But I did buy a much-needed new can opener. And we had our first real snow of the year yesterday.
Lowlight of the week: My immune-system-of-steel husband somehow came down with a cold last week and, despite my best efforts, it had come to visit me by Friday night. I'm staying home from work today, and I'm quite sad that my record of not getting sick in over two years is busted. And, being the weirdo that I am, I'm bummed that I was only about one paycheck away from maxing out my sick hours and work and here I finally had to go and use some! Sigh.
Reading: In my Saturday post I said I feared I was on the cusp of a reading slump -- I didn't feel like completing anything I'd started and nothing else sounded good either. If I wasn't sick, I probably would've just taken a reading break, but I didn't feel like doing much of anything so I plowed through one of the three books I had started, "November 9" by Colleen Hoover. It turned out to be decent, but nothing else I have out from the library appealed to me. So yesterday I perused my own bookshelves (something I never do, despite the vast number of unread books they hold) and selected "Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell," a book I've been meaning to read for years. Magic and historical England might be just what I need to get my reading mojo back. And it was recently turned into a miniseries by BBC America, so I can look forward to watching that.
Knitting: Still hard at work on the mermaid tail blanket.
Watching: We're now partway through season 2 of "Orphan Black." I can't stop watching!
Wearing: Sweats, a thermal shirt, slippers and a blanket.
Drinking: All the warm beverages in copious amounts -- coffee, tea and cocoa.
Looking forward to: The only good thing about taking a sick day is that I get to watch last night's "Downton Abbey" this morning!
