What am I doing?

Well, I am a crispaholic (Americans call them potato chips), i.e. pretty much addicted! AND...I have 2 packets of beetroot crisps purchased for tomorrow's dinner invitation (by way of nibbles). So I am trying to stave off eating them ... quite a battle (they are not easily replaced i.e. not purchased locally).

I had plans all set for today Take my library book, Boston Lost a bunch of teabags with my sugar and sit out on the patio reading. Forget that idea. It is cold and overcast out. No warmth and sunshine until tomorrow morning. Maybe then. I have three weeks to read it. It has the pictures of all the beautiful historic buildings that have been torn down and the story behind them. Including John Hancock's house.

So instead I will be watching TV and doing putzy things.

Folding laundry, sheets specifically . I love folding fitted sheets. Guess it comes from years of styling merchandise for advertising. I know, it's strange but I truly enjoy it.

I'm escaping from the neighbors' noisy meltdown. This family has five kids. Apparently the parents are breaking up and the mother has left. Since she was the primary breadwinner, the dad can't keep renting the house. So he's got his pickup parked in the front yard and is emptying the house while really loud music plays from the truck's speakers.

I've been wanting to go shopping for new clothes, so this is my opportunity. Here's hoping for better new neighbors.

Just got back from late lunch/early supper with DH, Mummy-in-law, and B-I-L. We were going to go out in the early evening, but it's really rainy here, so they wanted to drive back to Cornwall (~100 km) before dark. We went to a local, 24 hour resto. I really enjoyed the smoked salmon/bagel platter.

Looking for inspiration and energy to get up and get moving. Finally gave in and took some pain meds. Maybe that will help.
