Sniffles

Curling up in bed, trying to stave off the cold/flu that I feel is coming. Doesn’t hurt that there is a book or two to be read, either. Of course, today’s original plan was to finish filling the new pantry. But anyways…

Take a deep breath…

Autumn (in combination with the hormonal cycle) is wreaking its havoc on my mood again. Things that aren’t usually affecting me – feel like the end of the world.
