Today's not-so-favorite moments included . . .
. . . having really low energy today. I know it's a relatively mild side effect and probably won't last more than a month more, but today was a very long day. Have you ever seen Ladyhawke? I saw it exactly once when I was in college, and for some reason I've started giving myself Mouse's little pep talk a lot lately. "Come on, Mouse, keep going. Not much further." I leave off the, "About 350 miles, that's all."
Today's favorite moments included . . .
. . . seeing the beautiful roses in bloom in our area. Vivid reds, pure whites, luscious lavenders, and so many other colors. I never used to be a big fan of roses, but for some reason I have loved seeing their colorful blooms on virtually every street this spring.
. . . chatting with Phillip on the couch after the kids were in bed.
And another thing . . .
. . . OK, I know that "malaise" actually means "a vague sense of physical, mental, or moral ill health" not "lack of energy or motivation," but I couldn't think of a better word to describe my actual condition, and "malaise" is kinda fun to say. Mayhap my English major friends can offer some more precise suggestions.
. . . I printed a new copy of my cookbook early this year, and within a week had found multiple errors in it. I revised four more recipes today. I'll probably continue fine-tuning that book for the next few decades, until my sight gives out or I'm too old to cook.
