Dashboard Views

October 10, 2009

During a rain storm the other night I reluctantly hauled my ass off the couch and drove a friend on an errand. While waiting in the car I snagged a few shots of the dash and through the windhield.

Oh, and guess what, Am? I’m sick (not seriously so) and working. I’m almost ashamed to say I was in bed around 9 p.m. last night and stayed there until about 8:30 a.m. Mind you I spent the first hour reading more of Jeanette Walls’ The Glass Castle which I started a couple of days ago. Eminently readable; very interesting. Previously I ditched The Shipping News after about 100 pages. I rarely leave a book unfinished once I start reading it but never did get drawn in – had no interest in the characters or where the plotline was taking them. Just not my cuppa tea, I suppose, despite it’s recommendation. (Sorry SueYM.)

So, tons of water and tea for me. Picked up some honey on the way to work tonight for my throat. Sensitive creature that I am, I don’t medicate myself for colds as my system is so damned pure now that just about everything throws me off kilter. (Whereas before I’d take enough meds to choke a horse, wash ’em down with an ocean of booze so that I’d be unaware that I was sick….. funny how things change.) Lots of liquids and as much time in bed as possible – that’s the Rx for me. (and maybe a little oil of oregano)
