How was the weekend? I spent mine catching up on much-needed sleep. Two days off, two naps. Is there anything more decadent than a nap on a Saturday afternoon? I can’t say the one yesterday was decadent – I was feeling awful. Whatever this is I’m fighting off had kicked me hard. I suspected correctly it was a bout of allergies.
Nevertheless, we had a lovely weekend. The sun was out, the leaves are somewhere between a warm yellow and vibrant orange, the air was crisp, and the world seemed ready to enjoy it. Saturday we spent at the farmer’s market, then the whole foods store, then back home where I made my first miso soup. He hadn’t been feeling well, I certainly wasn’t, and we were craving the miso we’d had at a local restaurant the day before. I’d found kombu (seaweed) at the whole foods store, along with the rice wine. It turned out great.
Yesterday we decided to get in the car and drive. He was finishing a liquid fast, so he was feeling worlds better. Me, not so much. But getting out was terrific. We ended up at the Daniel Boone homestead and a neighboring state park, where we enjoyed more sunshine, chillier temps, and nearly got caught in the middle of a six-car accident. In the park.
Younger boys in a car behind us weren’t content with the 25 mph he was driving through the park. Posted speed limit and when there are people everywhere walking, you damn well obey them or someone gets hurt. Sure enough, they swerved to our left unexpectedly, at the top of a small hill, just as three other cars were headed in our direction. Everyone locked brakes, and two people ended up sideways. In a park. You’d think they’d take that as a lesson in patience. Right. They didn’t get off our rear bumper until he came to a stop sign and waved them past us. And they were laughing as they did pass.
I had plenty of reading time and resting time both days, and I decided that the sore throat and headache may not be a cold. I was right. Allergy spray proved it almost immediately, amen.
Today I intend to press forward on one article due – have to contact the source for the last time – then get the invoice out. I have a few client contacts to get back in touch with, then more marketing and the preparation for Anne’s and my Webinar with Susan Johnston. I’m eager to hear more from Susan. Her book was pretty revealing on how to use LinkedIn to its best advantage. I can’t wait to hear her insights on e-book publishing, too.
